Soul Journal Inchies

I just finished my inchies layout from Sarah Whitmire's soul journal page. Yesterday I gesso'd the pages and distressed them with a wash of "toast" acrylic paint. I finished the night off with sitting in my over sized chair, watching TV, drinking tea, and choosing my 24 images. We actually rented the movie, "There will be blood". I was a good movie, but with all the academy awards it had received, I was sort of disappointed.

Today, I glued the images to the pages. Then I choose two colors to mix that I don't normally use. I used parakeet blue and Irish mint. I'm really happy with how it turned out and had a ton of fun doing it. I'm not sure why, but I think my favorite image is the yellow flower.

I hope my fellow soul journal-ers are having as much fun as I am! I've even shared my excitement and the process with my sister-in-law who hasn't dabbled with art very much, and I think she's going to give it a shot! I may even go shopping tonight (if I can convince the hubby to allow me to drag him shopping while we are out tonight, that is..) for some basic supplies for her!

Oh~! By the way.... I've passed one pesky stone...and have one more to go! I'm not sure if that's good or bad yet. :)

I love your colors here. The blue and mint go lovely together. I like your yellow flower too. It really pops on the page.

Thanks for you nice comment on my blog!
I really love your new journal pages here. Are they on cloth? It looks like cloth. Maybe you mentioned it and I missed it. Sometimes I do that.

Hi Sandy, thanks for visiting me. Glad you're enjoying the soul journal - I've had a great time with it. I love your armour dress, where did you get the picture from?

This turned out really great! I love seeing how all of our inchies pages are different, even though we each used the same prompts.
