throwing them up in the air like confetti
and then running under them." Ray Bradbury

I think this is a fantastic page Tammy! It's bright, bold and full of movement, simply as a background... and then there's the very clever journalling spaces and all your squares! Brilliant and very inspiring! =)

Fabulous idea to use the correction tape to mask journaling spots! Brilliant! This page is brilliant too! You know what a color junkie I am!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Brilliant art journal page - literally & figuratively! Fantastic idea to use correction tape! Did you just write on top of it when ready or did you remove it before writing? Curious in California
PS...long time but quiet fan here! :) Michelle

The correction tape is SO cool!! Add this on my 'to play with' list.

Thank you everyone!

It's amazing what can become of an impromptu purchase at an office supply store {correction tape}.

Michelle, I put the correction tape on the page before anything else - that's the lighter white stripes. After using the inks etc. and I started journaling I realized I needed more space... so the more opaque white stripes are the correction tape added afterward. I didn't remove any tape.

I've tried masking spots with masking tape and electrical and painters tape with mixed results.

Wowza! These brilliant colors are just want I need! I can always depend upon delightful surprises and inspiration when I visit here!! :) Such an inspired idea! Fabulous design and I love the quote! {I needed some eye candy because my soldier son is in your state awaiting a delayed flight, and the final leg of his journey home for R&R from Iraq.} Thank you!! ~Gratitude and Hugs!

I never thought of using correction tape for journaling spots. Genius! Especially over backgrounds that are difficult to work on.
