Get those wish lists and budgets ready - you're not going to want to miss a stop! Before you go, I want to leave you with some inspiration as I just LOVE this new Creating In Faith collection. I have not been able to put it aside since I got it. Today I have a book mark and tag for you using just some of the pieces.

This shaker bookmark was incredibly easy to create using the 3x4 Journaling Cards in the collection. I stamped this awesome C.S. Lewis quote also in the collection and colored it in with various pens. Then I created the pocket using the awesome We R Memory Keepers Fuse! I love how versatile all the products in the collection are.

For my tag, I wanted to play with the Heart & Cross mask. I pulled out some of my favorite Ranger Distress Inks and Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic paints -  particularly the color Gilt - my current obsession - the perfect gold metallic! I love how it turned out. This same technique could also be applied in your Bible journaling. I think the distress inks would work beautifully on the pages and by just adding a small splattering of the watered down acrylic paint with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush, it shouldn't warp the pages.

I hope you enjoyed these projects today and are inspired to take a look at all the awesome deals to come. Be sure to leave your comments on each blog of the hop for your chance to win 1 of 13 Golden Scissors: I'd LOVE to hear which of the sneak peek deals I've revealed to you today you are MOST excited about! Leave your comment below to let me know.

Commenting/entries open until 7pm CST on Thanksgiving, November 26. Winners will be announced during our #blitsysleepover Pajama Party and posted on the Blitsy Blog. Now, don't forget, off you go to Stacey's Blog!

NaNoMouJou2015 Mixed Media Art Journal Pages

Hi Everyone! After watching one of my favorite mixed media artists, CeeCee Creations, participate in this challenge, I decided to jump in midway. 15 minutes. Every day. Art Journaling. Mixed Media.

I'm also uploading all of the process videos on my YouTube Channel - you can check out my NaNoMouJou2015 Playlist to view them all.

This last page is my favorite so far! I share more about my process in each video. Supply lists are also on each video description. Check out the playlist below:
