Stampotique Challenge - New Year Resolution

This weeks theme over at Stampotique Challenge has been set by the extremely talented Jane and this is what Jane has to say about it:- 
We all make New Years resolutions..and I make many!  I am asking you to use your New Years resolution as your "inspiration" this week on your creation "Stampotique style".  It can be any!  

Just keep it in mind when you create your card, altered object or journal pages.  One of my resolutions is to learn as much as I can about art journaling and that includes "letting go of insecurities".  I want to take pictures and record my life's events, paint when I feel the need and journal about what ever I feel.  

I think Stampotique stamps go hand in hand with art journaling so why not?  Get going and show us your stuff!  Have fun!

I created a background with distress stains and Abstract Foliage (3031).  I then created a border using Keep Calm, Smile and create beautiful things (7305).  Smile (6078)  was coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens. And here it is...............  And it will sit quite nicely in my newly made Journal created for the first challenge of the year :O)

Why not pop over and see what all the ultra talented DT have created for this challenge and join in with us.  Dont forget there are two $30 gift certificates up for grabs for the month of January so make sure you reall ALL the rules on the linkz page.
Thanks for looking
