I finished another journal page , I wasn’t sure about adding it to the Journal52  Faceboook group , but decided to add it..  .And  Wow was surprised at how many comments I got there, And likes. I am thinking no one reads blogs any more that facebook is where everyone is now a days. but I am keeping this account , I am too old to learn any more new ways. LOL… Hopefully I can get more people back to my blog so I don’t need to link and chase.. I am using TLC CREATIONS  I love the freebies and so happy I get to use them.. Thank her whenever you can.. they are wonderful…

This piece of art was a lot of fun I finally got some new Dylusion’s INK SPRAYS!!!!! I love Christmas money… LOL… anyways I used the words quote from tlc , my new sprays,magic marker {black} for the stars, and then Crystal lacquer.. OH I DO LOVE THAT STUFF!!!

my {SHE} girl art

a few years back it was called she art and they were mostly done with blank faces and no arms showing so it was easy to draw. no feet or some of them  just had a long dress. Well any ways they are back in again.  But now its girl art..    what ever face no face they sure are fun to make and there’s so many books on this art and Artist are all ove rare making with them, so here’s my spin , might as well add me to the list.. haha..She art girl.

how to make rosettes, oh so pretty.

how to make paper rosettes,  I’ve found that differnt lengths of paper strips  will makes a differnt look full or fanned.  The width of the paper is differnt so play around to see what you’d like. It depends on if your using them  for  a larger object or not.like a big gift, or a scrap book page.. All depends on what you like.

First I cut a straight edge ,and then a fancy dancy scissors  cut, for a more interesting effect.

Now fold tight accordian style flipping back and fourth,   I used my fingers to fold,  or you could use a bone folder. If you want a fuller fan ;add more paper strips.{Glue , OH I use FABRI- TAC } could use a glue gun. just need a good glue .

nice tight folds.

now punch out a circle to glue to the bottom side of the rosette.   Glue needs to be a strong one so that it wont pop back up. remember to glue the bottom first, You can leave it plain with a small circle on top or decorate with 2 or more circles, of differnt sizes. maybe add  a charm on it. explore have fun with it.

stamp or write a message in cnter of circle

I added a button jem to this one , oh so PRETTY…… cant wait to see yours……..
