A scavenger Hunt

In one of my Yahoo Group Journal Challenges one of the gals did our weekly challenge as a Scavenger Hunt. I had sooo much fun doing this Art Journal Spread. Gathering the pieces for the hunt and applying them to my spread. I used this Terra Cotta Texture for the first time and am in love with it. This is a Deco Arts Product and we sell it at OWSE..

Some of the Elements in the Scavenger Hunt

was use an R and a F..

For the R I used Tissue Paper with Roses on it

For the F

I used a Flower Stencil

We were suppose to take something out of the Garbage and use it

I had just thrown an empty Paper Towel Roll into the garbage..

I cut this up and opened it and added the words Believe to it.

Then ran it through my Crimper and Distressed the Edges

Something from outside in the yard was needed so instead of gluing some tree branch

onto the spread I ran it through the Terra Cotta Texture stuff

to get those lines in it. Like scratches.

We had to have a bottle cap

well I have some but I'd be damned if I could find them

so I took a picture from the web and added three Layers of Clear UTEE to it..

A piece of Plastic I use one of Tim Holtz Fragments

We had to find a UPC Code and Add that.

We also needed a Piece of Metal and a Number

Once again I used a Tim Embellishment

I used Alcohol Ink to color the Metal

We need three colors of Acrylic Paint..

I am in love with Claudine Hellmuth's paints and used those.

Yes you can get it at OWSE

then their had to be some kind of Circles - two of them on the Spread

I found this Double Circle Stamp and stamped randomly on the Spread

And Finally we needed an Image of someone Smiling..

I had this cute stamp and boy is she ever smiling. LOL

I colored the stamp with Gelatos..

Same with my Hearts

I counted all the elements needed and finally had them all on their.

I might not have mentioned them all. It's hard to remember. duh!!

This was sooo much fun to do.. It took me hours..

I started in the wee hours of the morning and finally finished

at 10:00 this morning..

Working on it little by little until I had all the components..

Thanks Jeannie for a great challenge.

once again my puny camera makes it look terrible.

The Terra Cotta Texture looks fabulous but not in the picture for sure.

Hey!!! thanks for looking..


  1. Love your page, Robyn. I was wondering how to get around the bottle cap too, I like how you've done it.

  2. love this art journal spread. maybe we can do a scavenger hunt too? I need to get re-inspried to work in my journal.
