Empowering Women ~ A page from Spike’s Journal

Happy Monday all! This weekend was relatively quiet for me compared to last. I can also say that I’m the proud owner of a new roof! Now when we have a crazy, windy, rainstorm I can rest easy knowing that we’ve got a good roof over our heads. So as I was happily listening to the heavy rain against the new roof yesterday, I therapeutically worked away on a journal page.


This background and border was done a while ago. As you know, I have a few pages that are in various stages. The border had taken me an evening while watching a few TV programs, I traced around the 5×8 Dylusions Dotted Flower Border and used a micron pen to fill it in as well as add the dots all round.


I wanted to let you in on a little secret of mine! I just LOVE using these tiny letters! I had found them in a clearance bin which was a big score but now I’m on the lookout for different fonts and realize that they’re not that easy to find.
When I look at a page it gives me a vibe. I then look online for quotes that mirror that vibe and stamp away the one that resonates with me.


This image started off as a mop up page, I then stamped off this dress from the Walk in the Park set in Jet Black Archival ink. To give it a little more dimension, I just grabbed a water pen and painted with some inks. The image gave me a sassy, sexy, self confident vibe and in addition to the quote by Mary Wollstonecraft, I added those words subtlety to the dress and went over top with white pencil crayon.
