Happy New Year everyone! 
I got to bring my New Year  in on the beach, and felt inspired to create a
journal page from this great stamp from Yvonne's collection.

For today's post, I'm using Yvonne's special Journal in 4x8.

 
  
Here is a quick 15 minute video on how I created this page:


I wanted to keep this page simple, and let the quote speak for itself.
 So I printed a moon image from the internet, and painted myself
a giant wave!  Here you can see the texture left behind by the thick paint and the variations of paint color.  I love the contrast of the copper embossing powder on the sea foam greens.

Here is a final glimpse at the Journal Page.   You can see the moon peek-a-booing out of the far left corner.  It is hard to tell what it is at first glance, but I know what it is.


I really believe that you have to sometime make a few waves to make a difference in your life every now and then.  If we move through life afraid to shake things up, then we never seem to get anywhere.  This page will serve as my reminder to not be afraid to ride one of those waves and see where it takes me! I hope you enjoyed this page. Thanks for hanging out with me today, I hope you had fun, and learned a few new techniques.
