Happy Weekend everyone!!

Pfew.!  What a week!!  It's a miracle I got anything done!!

The studio is coming  along.  According to Mr, it will be finished this weekend, to the point where I can start moving in, and stop working at a portable table in the living room!!  This means that it will not be ready to photograph it yet, but my living room will be clear, and I can HOPEFULLY get my decorating done in here!!  Knowing me, it will take a month, ugh, but I will be able to do it!! and that is progress, right??

Here is my Color Journal Page!!!  I got the idea from Julie of Balzer Designs.  She also hosts "Art Journal Every Day", which I follow.  And while following her weekly prompts, she showed us her color journals.  I was HOOKED!!  What a fabulous idea!!  I showed you the paint color samples I got a week or so ago, and I used the pink ones for this, the first pages.
The 2 page spread

The left side of the spread.  I did this page sideways, so I turned it for you too see.  I used my paint samples, antique lace from my grandmother (it really is pink, it looks weird in this picture), fabric, ribbons and decorative tape.  I used a stencil and some Ranger "Victorian velvet" pink ink too.  And what is this?  OH NO!! Hello Kitty!!  How did you get on there????

And the right page, in it's up and down orientation.  Same things used, plus some pictures, flowers and netting.

That's my color journal pages for last week!!

And, because I am going to link this post up to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday Party, I am going to add a few more pinks!

Here she is!!  Hello Kitty desk supplies that I usually keep on my desk in the studio.  I have a ton more, but I have to find them!!  I love my Hello Kitty stamp! I use it on the back of all of my work.

Thanks for visiting!  Have fun at Beverly's party, and have a fabulous weekend!!

  6. Daniella, love your color journal. What a beaufiful inspiration. I hope you enjoy the process of moving in to your own studio and decorating it to reflect "you," a place of peace and creative energy just for you! I recently re-painted mine and I am soooo in love with being in here. Happy Pink Saturday too!


  7. Now that looks like fun...and what a great idea. I can imagine those journals being sought after and treasured in years to come.
    Happy pink Saturday and thanks for sharing !

  8. Your pink journal is lucious. These are great works of art! I'm anxious to see the studio complete.

  9. Oh I just love your pretty journal!

    Last Monday I did a tutorial on a pink party favor which you might enjoy. I am now organizing a Spring altered matchbook swap if you are interested.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  10. Hi Daniella! I see you are a Hello Kitty fan. She is a cutie. I like anything having to do with cats! Your journal pages are so pretty. I didn't know Ranger had that color of ink. I use their tattered rose color pretty often. I can't wait to see photos of your new studio! Have a great weekend. Terri

  11. Happy Pink Saturday!
