Itinerary #9 and Parcel #9

It's already week 9 of the Art Journal Caravan. Times goes fast! So we have a new itinerary and a new parcel!
One of the things we can choose of is to find a photo or image that is calming or inspiring and use that on your layout. And the verb of the week is Refresh. But there are many other things we can do for this week. I still have to choose what I will do.

Parcel #9 is wonderful, so I ordered it right away!

ATC for Altered Artspiration Challenge!

For the Altered Artspiration Challenge at SBG I made this ATC. The theme for this week is Time Flies.
I used Curious Adventurs by SherrieJD and Studio Tangie, Curious Quotes by SherrieJD and Enchanted Art Box by SherrieJD and Studio Tangie, all available at Scrapartist.
It's really fun to join there challenges. I discovered creating ATC's just a couple of weeks ago, but I really enjoy creating these little cards!

My layout for week 8.

We stayed at home this morning after returning from the supermarket. So I had time to play around with the new parcel. I added a lot of stuff from other kits too and above you see the result of my layout for week 8!
I must admit the style of it is more traditional than altered art. So if I have time next week I will try to make another page in a more altered art style.
For this layout I used Parcel 6 and 8 and Steamer Trunk by Tangie Baxter and Amanda Sexton, Cirque Joyeux, Teal Time and Sun Shine by Tangie Baxter and SherrieJD (Scrapartist), Vintage Word Arts vol. 2 and Lot 93 Chipper Chat by Tangie Baxter. I always like to mix and match things.

Itinerary #8 and Parcel #8

Yesterday was Friday again and that means a new Art Journal Caravan week!

So we got our next itinerary. It's all about Being in Tune. The verb of the week is Compose and we got a beautiful quote about music. I play an instrument myself, so I will see if I can integrate that on my layout.

Also there is a new parcel. I just had to buy it again. I really like all the parcels so far, although I haven't use all of them. But some of my pages are made with the parcels.
And I ordered some other stuff:
All kinds of words on the strips. I always love to create titles or journaling with that kind of strips!

And for some extra inspiration the new Altered Hears Zine is out! You can get it at Scrapartist and it's loaded with great altered art pages, book reviews and a freebie!

Some ATC's made with SherrieJD's stuff.

In the last couple of weeks I joined different altered art challenges and I made some ATC's for it. Also I'm in SherrieJD's Creative Team and made things for her too. Above you see some of them, all made with stuff from SherrieJD (Scrapartist).

ATC for a challenge at SBG with Teal Time by SherrieJD and Studio Tangie.

For the Altered Artspiration Challenge at SBG I made this ATC. I posted this on my scrapblog yesterday, but decided to post it here to.
I used the collab Teal Time by SherrieJD and Studio Tangie, available at Scrapartist.

Another Art layout with the Art Starts of SherrieJD!

I've been playing around with the Art Start papers again. I think SherrieJD made very nice art papers and they are very easy in use. I also used pieces from Mindy's World, by SherrieJD and the Passenger ticket is from Studio Tangie. The paint splatters are from Paint Box by Miss Mint.

Perfect Art Starts backgrounds by SherrieJD!

If you want to make Art Journal Pages but don't know how to start, SherrieJD has a great solution for you! She has 3 sets of Art Starts. In the sets are some very artsy backgrounds. For this layout I used one of the papers from Art Starts vol. 3. I also used the ARTist to ARTist Bad Fog Alpha (copied the inside of the letters to an extra layer and changed the color of it) and the doll is from Hello Dollies by SherrieJD and Studio Tangie. It's all in the shop at Scrapartist.

My first layout for week 7.

The verb of this week is Share, so I used that for my layout.
We also have to try a new technique. For this layout I didn't do that, but I hope to find some time this week to try something new. Because that's what this Art Journal Caravan is about! Learn new things!

For this layout I used the following things:
Parcel 7 by Tangie Baxter and Amanda Sexton
Vintage Adwords 2 by Tangie Baxter
Splatter Graffiti Sweethearts by Tangie Baxter.

Itinerary #7 and Parcel #7

Week 7 of the Art Journal Caravan started and Tangie posted the new itinerary for this week. We can choose between different things. The verb of the week is Share, but one of the other things is to try a new technique. I think I will do the last one, but now I have to decide which technique that will be. Maybe some paining in Art Rage, maybe use my Wacom tablet for my journaling. I don't know yet.

Tangie and Amanda made another great parcel for week 7:
And I also ordered this Vintage Adwords set from Tangie:

My layout for week 6!

This is my layout for week 6, it's all about bliss! I used stuff from Tangie Baxter and SherrieJD (available at Scrapbookgraphics and Scrapartist), for example the new kit Junque Journal.

Itinerary #6 and Parcel #6

Yesterday it was time for Itinerary #6, about Blissful living. I still have to think about how I can show that on a layout.
To get inspired there is also a new parcel! I ordered it right away!
But I got more new stuff!
Junque Journal, a collab from Tangie Baxter and SherrieJD (Scrapartist)

Mindy's World by SherrieJD (Scrapartist)

Junk Yard by SherrieJD (Scrapartist). This is one of my favourites!

Book ordered!

I had a discount coupon from so I decided to order this book above: 1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol. I'm really excited about it, but I have to wait a couple of days before I'll get it.
I hope to find a lot of inspiration in it, but what I've heard of the book so far it must be a real "must have".
