A special birthday post with Jelissa

Hello 13@rts fans, how is your day? 

Today is very special for me as I'm turning 36, almost halfway through my life. And I'm so glad to be sharing a very special birthday project with you, created with lots of wonderful 13@rts products.


I know rainbows have been done to death, but I've never tried it before. I also took a "selfie" of some sort - those are my hands in the photo working on an art journal page. My title is written on the photo, and is a hashtag I use in some of my Instagram posts - "#shemakesstuff". 

Some close-ups:

lots of fun bits there with textures and colours

more fun stuff

and more colourful stuff :D

Color pencils I "borrowed" from my youngest since they are too short for him to hold. I have given them a new lease of life as embellishments. 

Here is a start-to-finish video tutorial for this layout. I'm also hosting a special birthday giveaway on my personal blog, so drop by to see how you can win a fantastic prize from me.
