Art Journal Entry Using Flea Market Finds

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm here mid-week, sharing a page I recently created in my Create Happiness Art Journal. 

 I typically would save this type of post for Mixed Media Monday, but just after creating this page, Spellbinders advertised their Clearance Sale and they're offering an extra 15% off at checkout.  So there you go!

I wanted to work with Cathe Holden's previously released Flea Market Finds collection (which can now be found in the Clearance section) to create a page in my art journal, but I was short on time, so I used very few "mixed media" techniques.

This page came together quickly by covering the page using this pretty piece of printed paper from the Florals Palette Sampler.  

I added some ephemera bits, creating a pocket using one of the pretty pieces from Meadow Lark Miscellany Pre-printed Die Cuts.  I tucked a few more die cut pieces into the pocket along with a cute photo I found online and printed on my home printer.

I stamped the title using the Miscellany Words Clear Stamp Set and a stamp image and postal cancellation mark from the Handle With Care Clear Stamp Set.

The warm colors on this page make my heart happy.

Your page is just gorgeous, I love that bird, and the pictures are neat tucked in the pocket along with the ticket stubs and such, beautiful papers too! My ephemera box is now full and I have told myself I can't buy more until there is room for more, we will see how long that lasts, LOL!
