Sorry that i've been missing- I'm on a mission- More Peter Rabbit tickets

Hi Everyone, I've been on a mission of clearing out closets, rooms etc... I've gone through every one of my storage boxes and trashed or am donating tons of items that are unused now. My upstairs is still what i'm working on but it's already taken almost 5 days of continuous work. Just my Craft area in my room has taken 3 solid days and i thought that it was fairly organized. It feels good to rid some things. I've had NO time for crafting. lol. but i'm sure i'll be back on it once i've finished the other things that need to happen.
Here are some more altered tickets that i've made for my Peter Rabbit junk journal. I realized that i needed to make more. I did manage to get my journal put together right before i started my crazy cleaning and getting rid of things.







Supplies used
Blank Blue tickets (found at Goodwill)
White or Clear Gesso
Peter Rabbit stamp set- All Night Media- Bought from Ebay

Altered Tickets for my upcoming Junk Journal

Well i've finally decided to start on my "Fair Entry" journal this year. I've chosen to go with a Themed Journal of Beatrix Potter, mainly focusing on Peter Rabbit but i have to add a few friends. lol
I found some awesome new graphics from Vectoria Designs on Etsy. If you haven't visited her shop for Junk journaling you should. 
Well, i discovered altered tickets recently and decided to give it a go.  I'm thinking about using the strip tickets for Belly bands on some pages and for some embellishments also in my journal.

Alcohol inking- So much fun!

I've broke out those alcohol inks that i've had in my drawer for awhile. As you probably know if you follow me, i go through stages in my creativity. lol. 
To create this background i used my Tim Holtz alcohol inks. I first layed down the color and then stamped the flowers over the top. I had to do it that way because even though i was using Staz on ink they would smear from the alcohol. The stamps that i used i picked up at the Heirloom Pro show a few weeks ago called "Forever in time" along with my Tim Holtz flowers that i had in my stash.
