Art Journal with Marie - Christine

Hello everyone!

I would like to share with you a special Art Journal page that I made with the title of May pop song.
I have many Art Journals, this one is a large share format.

As background I used a photographic paper from  Paper House "wedding kit".
I printed and pasted a vintage image found on Pinterest.
Finally, I painted with paint dylusions, some large flowers,  hearts on the top and other decoration.

It is very simple to do!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Mixed Media project by Aya

Hello lovely follower! Today it should be our tutorial day, but the video Aya prepared for you misteriously disappeared, so we only have this pictures to show you her amazing work created taking inspiration from our rock song - we have a couple of songs to use for inspiration and you still have time to link up with us before the end of the month.  We also have some great prizes to be won too. Have a look at the mid month reveal and join in with us!  

Now, here is Aya's project:

And this is how Aya was inspired by the song: "The song was amazing mix of feelings I ended up doing mixed media".

We are sure you will like her project as much as we do!

May mid-month reveal

We are teaming up with Challenge Yourself this month.
You can take part in our challenge and in theirs or you can combine them: there are a lot of prizes for you!
If you combine challenges, be sure to link up with both of us.

Our rules are pretty simple:  Make a project either paper or digital and tell us how you were inspired by the song either pop or rock (maybe the lyrics, or a specific word, or the theme, or even the video...) You can even link up two projects one for each song.  (We would love for you to do that) Link up to our Linky Tool over at the top right of the blog.

These are our songs for May - click on the title to be taken to the video.

Pop Song

Rock Song

This is the mood board for the month at Challenge Yourself.  We love all the greens, blues and yellows! For this challenge you must make a layout including YOU in the picture, use one of the songs and use this mood board as inspiration:


Now let's see what our lovely Design Team has for you this month.

Pop Team

 Our daughter is a high school graduate as well as from our local junior college. So proud! It's definitely a BEST DAY, inspired from the pop song 'Best Day of My Life' plus in collaboration with ChallengeYOUrself mood board #29, I went with the soothing colors of green and blue and added some flower embellishments. I especially like the peacock feather stamp that went well with this layout. The small pic is of me and baby girl when we were both about 18 months old (30 years difference) and on a few other occasions. So happy for her to begin the next part of her journey. Enjoy!


I was inspired by the song title "Best Day Of My Life"  Not that this was the best day but it was a great day.  It is a happy song and we were happy on vacation and having a good time.  The mood board inspired me in that we were on Spring Break and I was inspired by the blue, yellow and green.  My colors are a little different (lighter) but it was a fun layout to do.

Rock Team

This is my work after seen the beautiful mood board by Challenge Yourself! I love this page! A little squares all over the Layout and some lovely spring embellishments.. welcome spring!!
