Heart Journaling with TGF

Hi!  I signed up for TGF's heart journaling class.  We were to get a journal and decorate the cover too.  So while we were shopping at Target one day, I found this really inexpensive marker/paint pad for kids.  It was pretty large so I ended up cutting the pages in half and making 2 journals, one for me and the other for my daughter who wants to play along as well.  Our journal covers were on TGF's blog today and my daughter was excited about that!

My daughter's Hello Kitty art journal which I bound with my Cinch.  She used tear-shaped ink pads to make the hearts after she saw that I had made flowers with them too.

My journal featuring TGF's Blush Bonnie.  I chose these colors after I saw the papers from Echo Park's Be Mine set. 

I used the ink pad to make flowers, reminds me of plumerias.  I also used TGF's Splotchy and the hearts, and PTI's Butterfly Dreams.  I made this journal first and I liked the colors a lot so that inspired me to make my ATCs

A close up of Bonnie.  I rubbed some shimmery chalk over some areas too.

Spritz some glitter on there too.

I also wanted to share my youngest one's art work.  He loves to craft so much.  This is his house.  I was impressed with his polka dot door and his triangle roof.  He also made a card and tag set which I'll share later. 

Our first assignment for the art journal is to use the concept of wings.  Not quite sure what I'll be doing yet.  Although pretty much anything goes when it comes to art journaling. 

Thanks for reading!

Your journal covers are beautiful! Your daughter is very clever, love how she made hearts after seeing your flowers! It's so cool that your son is crafty too, love the house! I think hello kitty and the Christmas tree are great accents!
