Isabella and Belle

I've started another art journal! No, I haven't finished my last one - just wanted to start a new size. ;D This one is really small and about the size of a jumbo trading card (3.5"x5"). I had intended this one to be simple and sans embellishments... but as you can see on the first page, I couldn't resit adding a few. LOL

For this project I used Isabella and Belle from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which is the same one I colored for the release of this image. I just needed to find a project for her and get them settled down on paper.

The smaller size journal has been fun and this being the first page is a good start for myself. My goal is to fill it mainly with colored images and try not to focus on the layout or embellishments. I will, however, need to restrain myself from adding bulky items and keep it as flat as possible so it doesn't fall over. ;D

I'd like to enter into the following challenges:

Die Cut Dreams Challenge #96 - pink, green, coffee colors
Crafts and Me Challenge #49 - lace
The Sisterhood of Crafters - flowers
Paper Creations Ink Challenge #7 - flowers


  1. This smaller journal is a brilliant idea Barbara, just think, if you need a card quick all you need do is pull out a page and stick it to a base. The tore edges I think would add to the look.

    What GSM are those pages hun? I really would love to have a go myself.

  2. Beautiful first page, Barbara!


  3. I love your journals Barbara and you've inspired me to think about starting one too. Hard to hold back on those embellies tho, lol. CoB
