I have started two art journals. There is an interesting story with the vintage red scrapbook...I bought it about 5 years ago, when I first started scrapping. About 2 years ago, I sold it to my neighbor's mother in a garage sale. My neighbor's mother was moving this summer and had a garage sale, and wouldn't you know I bought this scrapbook back without realizing what I was doing until it dawned on me a week later? I guess if you really let something go, it will come back to you if you were meant to have it.
Here are my first pages inside of it, inspired by Journal Bliss: Creative Prompts to Unleash Your Inner Eccentric by Violette. I used acrylics, the black writing is with my Copic Marker (love that you can write over anything!), and also Stickles glitter glue.
This page "Be The Hero of Your Own Story" was made prior to my canvas of the same title. I made the background directly on the book pages, and I made the angel on other paper, outlined with my black Copic marker, cut her out and adhered onto the background.
Below is my first entry into my Wreck This Journal book. This happened to be the day I knocked over the glitter, spilling half the jar onto the carpet! My Facebook friends had a good laugh, said I should pour myself a drink and toast to my sparkly new carpet! :)
I love my new Female Symbol Stamp from Scenic Route, RAK'd to me from the spunky and cool Angela Meuse!

I almost forgot! You must check out the new Bad Girls Kits &
a Special Announcement!!!Bad Girls Kits: I am so very excited to make a few announcements that have been on the table here for us for quite a while. It is my hope after reading this that you will not only share in our excitement, but you will also understand why we have been so very busy here.
I told you back in June that my desire was to design and teach more….that is definitely my passion. I did have the chance to do just that and I really do enjoy it, but there has always been a part of me that desires state of the art products that I cannot find anywhere, so the answer to that problem was to design my own products…..so what does that mean? Well…..SURPRISE! BAD GIRLS is launching our very own manufacturing company. If things continue in the right direction, we will be launching our first lines in January at CHA Anaheim. So, I am soooo very jazzed to bring you amazingly new and innovative products that I so lovingly call BAD GIRLS COUTURE!!!! Watch for our new site coming very soon with a Design Team Call coming also.
I admit, it has been really fun designing all the new products, but it has also been a lot of work….probably more than what I expected. In light of everything I apologize for the design work being late here, but I am working on it and I promise it will be up soon. At the same time, with not only COUTURE coming up soon, but another kit club also *gasp*…more about that later….there will more than likely be some changes around here soon. And no worries girlies….you know we never sacrifice quality…it will only get better!
I want to wish all of you many Thanksgiving Blessings….I hope all of you have a very joyous holiday with your families. www.badgirlskits.com
