My first journal page / sometime my memories

Tuesday October 29, 2013
 
I have been looking at some journal blogs and really getting inspired. I got the journal kit that was offered recently from Simon Says and I thought I have to just go for it. It was very scary and I looked at different blogs to see how things were done. Well I came across this lovely saying, I think from Facebook - "sometimes my memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks" well I knew I had to use it. So at work I drew out this girl and kind of got an idea of what I wanted to do and came home and made it. I am so happy with how it came out. I would of placed the words better around her but hay it's my first official page so I am fine with it. I used different stencils and torn up papers, paints. I tore paper up to make the girl and just drew around it to make it stand out more. Personally I am impressed.  - My inspiration comes from Sheri Carrol (I hope I got her name right) from SS and Carolyn Dube. They both have truly inspired me.

I love how this turned out! And I also loved how you admitted to being scared to launch into a new journal endeavor! You are right: there's nothing more intimidating sometimes than a blank book staring up at us. But rest assured that you absolutely did justice to this piece! I adore the colors, I treasure the sentiment, and most of all, I like how it is totally YOU. Very well-done! I'm so glad you shared this delightful creation with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.
