I have been spending a lot of time out in nature on slow walks (still under Doctor’s orders). It clears my mind and helps center me. On Mother’s Day the guys asked me what I wanted to do..So I thought for a while an said go on a hike then fishing. So, they made me breakfast and got me coffee and then we all dressed in camo and set off! It was a great day!
We found lots of treasure on our hike. We found two bottles. We got them all cleaned up. This is what I did with them.
I used a little burlap, brown paper bags, and Maya Road wooden birds (that I got from Genuinely Jane Studio) , tickets, artistcellar stencils (that I got from Genuinely Jane Studio), and some vintage flowers.
The simple things in life can make you so happy! Hope you enjoyed my vases.
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit!
Hello Everyone and Happy Middle of the week! Today, I am here to show you an album I made with a Genuinely Jane Studios wooden book.
I LOVE to take photos. My soul is very at peace out in the woods on a “nature walk”. This year, I have seen some birds that just make my heart “chirp” for joy. So, I thought making a book with the photos I took would be awesome.
Front cover- You can see the killdeer from page 3
Pages 2 and 3- The Robin (it’s my state bird) and the killdeer. Love them long legs
Pages 4-5, The Male and Female Red Breasted Grosbeak. This sweet pair comes to my feeder every year for a day. This year they were here for 3 days. This has been one of Ben’s favorite birds for a long time. They came the day we got the news that my youngest son (Ben) has a form of autism PDD-NOS (he is high functioning). Each morning Ben got up and talked to this pair. It was like they stayed until we could all deal with the emotions we were feeling.
I used the Artiscellar stencils right on the photo. It helps to blend the two together.
Pages 6-7, The Bald Eagle and the White Pelican. This was my first time I had ever seen a White Pelican. It was the most gorgeous sight to see them fly! Amazing!
Close up of the Pelican pull out.
The back of the book. Now, I know you are wondering what is so special about a pair of mallard ducks? Well every spring they walk though our back yard. So, It is a joke that there’s no quacking about it once you see the ducks it’s SPRING. Okay Okay ….BAD pun!
Hope you enjoyed my Spring bird book! I LOVE the albums at Genuinely Jane Studios. Make sure you check them out…OH and they are having a sale on Unity Stamps 34% off so hurry over and check it out!
Here we are on day 5 of the Genuinely Jane Studios and Artistcellar Blog Hop. Gosh, so many wonderful projects have all ready been shared! Before this blog hop, I have never used any of Artistcellar stencils. Holy smokes are they awesome!!!!! I am totally in LOVE with them.
I used the Owl wood book (G0006) , Star Coral stencil (AC023) , and Tortoise stencil (AC013).
I used all different quotes about nature to fill the pages.
Here is the book:
Don’t be afraid to layer your stencils. Just make sure they dry between layers. The results are stunning. Also, using the stencils on paper and washi tape helps to match your backgrounds and layers.
Make sure you stop over to Genuinely Jane Studios and Artistcellar, I am sure you will fine some stuff you need! SMILE!
Thanks for stopping in to visit today!
Happy May day everyone! This month, I am the guess designer for Genuinely Jane Studios. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Don’t know what Genuinely Jane Studio is? They have dozens of different styles of natural birch wood albums plus complimentary products. I have to say that I am in LOVE with the wood books. They are so much fun.
Here is my first project. I used the the bird book (G014), Artistcellar - Tortoise 6″ x 6″ stencils and Artistcellar- Star Coral 6″ x 6″ stencil.
This is the cover. I put 2″ x 2″ zentangles on each bird along with a uplifting word and eye.
Here is a side video of the book
This was a simple fun project and a great way to show off some zentangles. Thanks for taking a peak. Please check out all the cool stuff at Genuinely Jane Studios. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
