Digital Art, Decorated Journals & Lunch Sacks

This past weekend, I played in my art room covering some little Moleskin journals,  for gifts.
I also decorated paper lunch sacks to place each of the journals inside. 
The best part was I was able to use supplies and scraps I already had.

Here's another digital collage I created using a couple of my photographs, as well as a bird image.  The background texture
 is from Shadowhouse Creations.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day


These little journals were fun and easy to make.
I love combining fabric and paper.


I love the idea of decorating lunch sacks to use as gift wrap.
The latest issue of Somerset Life  has an article about this fun project. 




Add a little stitching and some vintage lace or any other embellishment of your choice.
I also took some pressed lavender I had and enclosed it in wax paper and stitched around it. 






So, there you have it, some of my creative fun this past weekend.  
Now, it's back to work and sadly it seems my creativity always gets put on the back burner for the week. 
Oh well, there's always next weekend to look forward to! 

Hope your week is off to a great start!
