Starting back blogging and Art Journaling Class

Hi everyone I have not posted on my blog for well YEARS haha, but I thought it was time to get back at it.  I will still of course be posting on my FB page regularly but will also post here so would be fabulous if you followed me here as well if you like.  and Likewise if anyone wants to check out my FB page it's here:  https://www.facebook.com/CaninosArtisticCafe/  If you want to see what I've been up to the past year or so check out my FB page above.  So I thought that since I'm doing a local Art Journal Class I would also share with all of you here so if anyone online wants to follow along and do it at home you can. 

So here is the page that I created of our theme words for this month.

Inspire, Discover, Grow, Shine and Create

We will use these words to create art journal pages that speak to us, in what is going on in our lives, or what we want to be inspired about or hopes and dreams for the coming months of this fabulous new year.  After the class I will give some tips and tricks that we learned so that you can try them at home.  I did a video that I posted on my FB page it's in the class event you can stop by there and check it out for a bit more inspiration.  If you create any pages from my class here please post a comment with a link below or pics on my FB page if you would like to share, I'd love to see everyone's creations!!  Thanks for following along and have a wonderful Tuesday <3 p="">

Layout and Tag Made from a Tommy Bahama Shirt Tag

 Here is a layout that I made last night, I apologize for the not so great pics, I took them when it was dark and with my Iphone to save some time.  I just really wanted to get a post up here because I've been totally neglecting my blog. The background paper is an old My Minds Eye cardstock and the greenish-yellow butterflies were made with a Basic Gray Line, and the pink butterflies with a polka dot Amuse paper.
This is the tag before I altered it, it's like a super thick /sturdy chip board so when Dan bought these shirts that had these tags I saved them.  First I totally love tags but I knew some day I'd use in some way on a project they were just too cool to throw away.
I added a piece of paper to cover the name on the tag and then used my vintage photo ink to ink the edges all the way around the tag

This is a close up of my finished tag, I added
