She is Art

Happy September or STAMPtember if you are following the Simon Says Stamp Blog. I wish I could say I've been super busy stamping, crafting and creating, but I haven't. LOL. Ive actually been catching up on some summer reading, some (very little) fall housecleaning and hanging out with my sweet Sophie.

I did however, create this altered journal/notebook using Pink Paislee's She Art collection. Have you seen it? It's FAB-ulous! Its girly yet grungy, beautiful and messy, classy artsy with a little subway twist.

I started with a regular composition notebook and started layering cardstock. The collection has some really cool dress pattern paper-really slick and crinkly. It's hidden in there for some texture. This faceless girl was cut from the back of one of the packages. I simply love her! The "be you" was stamped from a Tuesday Technique set and I think it fits this perfectly.

I hand tore one of the layers and fussy cut the roses.The top right hand corner has a grid rub-on and I used black ink and smudge it everywhere to give it more of a grunge feel. A few pearls and rhinestones add the classy finishing touches.

I have to say I'm rather proud of this little notebook. It's not a style I lean towards, but it was so freeing and fun to create. It is something I look forward to exploring and creating more of!
