If the broom fits....

Hello fellow Crafters,

This is my second posting for today. Boy, I love retirement. How did I ever have time to go to work ?
Anyway, I also did some Art Jounaling today. This is the result:

I used my big Dylusions journal for this spread. I must say that I prefer to use my smaller Moleskine one these days. These big empty pages are sometimes very intimidating. It is also getting a bit wonky because it is getting full.
I started with pink paint and then used my CaranD'ache watersoluble crayons to darken the edges. I then did my usual background stamping and stencilling. For something different I used some white embossing powder with a numberstamp, which worked rather well.  I got the photo from the internet ages ago and thought this sentiment was rather apt. The photo was matted on a doily and the text was stamped on white paper. I distressed the edges with dark pink Distress Ink and then glued it on the page.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I hope you like it.... 


  1. Wow, Corrie, just love this! I may have to "lift" that quote if you don't mind. I have a perfect Halloween image for it, too!! Now, I am a big fan of "white space" (even when NOT white), and you have definitely used it to your advantage here. Love, love, love this spread! And, yes, retirement is well deserved! ;-)

    1. Hi Kay,

      Feel free to lift any of my stuff. I don't mind. I would love to see what you do with it !
