Mixed Media Scrapbooks and some Inky Cards

A few weeks ago, I started a new scrapbook.  It is a cross between a mixed media journal, an experiment, a scrapbook, and a journal journal.  It probably has a trendy name - please let me know if you know it.  I have been basically taking a thought or Bible verse out of my head, matching it with a picture, and doing a mixed media background.  It has been so fun!

Here are a few of my pages:
On the page above, I am celebrating a few answered prayers (I have a bunch more since then and plan to do another page).  I did and ink/spray/smash bg with a lot of stenciling and doodling and then covered it all up with my super large journaling panel - lol.  I sponged the journal panel and then stamped on the tree ring from DRS Designs.
On the page above, I did an ink/spray/smash bg followed by some stamping, and then some stenciling.  I used SU! ink, Distress ink and Dina Wakley scribble sticks.  The lady stamp is also from Dina Wakley. 
The background on this page was also ink spray smash and the zombie male from DRS Designs was colored with Dina Wakley scribble sticks.  The pictures on the photo strip were from our recent trip to Great Wolf Lodge (love that place).
Another ink/spray/smash background, but then I dipped a circle stencil in some of the ink and slapped it on the page too.  I outlined a few of the circles with Stickles too.
This was a page I embossed with some white bricks. Then I dipped in some inky water and scrunched it.  I was inspired by a great artist on Splitcoaststampers.com, Cook22.  When it dried, I coated it with modge podge.  I added on some gold beads for fun.

Lastly, here are few fun cards with the same basic techniques as above.  The first background was made by dipping multiple stencils inky water and pressing them on the paper.  I used the Trick or Treaters Last Stop and Fall Leaf with Acorn stamps from DRS.

This one was also made using several stencils dipped in water.  Then I did some extra stenciling as well.  The birds are from Dina Wakley and the sentiment is from Dina Kowal (IO).
Hope you have been having as much fun as I have!

Many hugz
