I'm at it again, I can't get enough, this journaling stuff makes me happy!
The August challenge at Inspiration Emporium is fly a kite, how fun, huh?
I dug into my Dylusions stamps, inks, and stencils and went to town.
I always do my Dylusion journal pages the same, spray with water spray a few inks, dab it off with a paper towel and start my stenciling with paint or ink and stamping.
I made my own kite for this one, just drew it out on patterned paper, cut it out and added some rock candy stickles for some sparkle. I tied a tail with my string and tied little bows along the tail with more string.
I doodled around the kite to give it a little dimension.
The Dylusion stamp sets I used are doodle parts, love struck lucy, bits and bats and quintessential quotes.
I did my stamping with Archival Jet Black ink, I paper pieced her dress and highlighted the black dots with my Spica black glitter pen.I did my coloring with Distress Markers, and my outlining with my Gelly Roll white pen and Trend Micro black 08 pen.
I had the most wonderful mail day yesterday, 4 new Dylusional stamp sets, Dyan's Christmas collection! Have you read her Christmas words set? It cracks me up, I love that woman, LOL! All of her new sets are in at IE, use my coupon code ieirisgarden for your discount!

Man, we are burning up here. It's unusual if we have a high temp below 100, and no rain to speak of, maybe a 2 minute squirt every now and then. I know of farmers that are selling their cattle because the pastures are all dead and the price of hay is outrageous.
It's a sad situation. I've got the prettiest gardenia bush in my yard I've had for years, it's totally dead now :(
I hope y'all aren't as crunchy as we are here.
