Techniques in a pocket

 Sometimes I  get a little carried away.. and I love it... as my art takes hold and I loose myself in the whole process...  that is what happened with this...  

Today on Sunday Stamper... Hels asked for POCKETS... so I decided that I was going to do a few techniques and put them into the pocket on a page in my journal...  What fun would that be... 

Making the tags, using a few of my favorite techniques and also my NEW DISTRESS INK PADS.... yes I would have fun....  
 Well I had to use my new ink pads first... and that produced enough paper for another journal... not kidding... wish I was... these colors are so wonderful.. and then I had to add some yellow to the whole mix...  it was great fun.... I let things dribble, run, and even used a mini mister bottle that I used every last dribble out of to make the circles on the paper.... I let nothing go unused in any way, shape or form....  Of course as always some stray colors always manage to get into the paper... and that is the fun of it all....  what FUN it is too... I love playing with my inks... a favorite plus.  

Then I made the pocket... which I stapled onto the page... and then a little trim and then some doodling... love to do that too... as you know. 

As you can see ... the pocket is a nice deep one... I can get a lot into it... so it can hold a lot o techniques...  I will have to get busy and fill it up now...  I did make a few of my favorite ones and put them into the pocket...  

Thanks Hels for a GREAT challenge...  I love it... I have been trying to make flat pages for this journal... but in life the changes that we all have happen are generally for a good reason!!!  Expanding is one of those changes that is good... when it is with paper... LOL...  

Well it is a wonderfully sunny day here in the western mountains of North Carolina.. and the weather map shows that it is raining??? Which we are praying for.. but not a drop yet today...  we are keeping our fingers crossed that we do get some today or tomorrow....  Thanks for taking time to stop by here for a visit... I always love it when you stop by...  

Have a fun day... and enjoy yourself..  
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
