Art Journal Pages and More

One of my circle art journal groups is called I Dream in Colors, and the other day I received Karen's journal to work on.  Her chosen colors are brown, orange and cream, and in addition, Karen has a circus theme going on.  As in, life is a circus.  Which it often seems to be.
The theme took me in an unexpected direction, and the fact that I own a fun stamp set called Life Is A Balancing Act also dictated where to go.  Here are my pages:




I also finally finished my cabin door art for the cruise:

And managed to do a card for the ArtHaven October Lottery.  The theme is the moon:



I used a scrap circle as a mask on glossy white cardstock, then inked everything with both dark blue and gray.  The trees were stamped with black pigment ink and then heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Hello Eileen:
What a lovely blog entry!
If at all possible, do you think you could let me know who makes your "Life is a Balancing Act" stamp set? It's so much fun -- and my daughter is a fan of the high trapeze, so it would be a great set for me to have. There's no rush -- I read that you are going on THE cruise (have fun -- I am green!!!!), so it can easily wait until you get back home.
Thanks in advance for your help --
