Weekend School Project & Art Journal Pages

Hello creative friends.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I am still recovering from surgery, but have returned to work.  This weekend my granddaughter came for a visit and had a school project that she needed help with.  She had to build a castle and the one she picked was the Chateau de Foix.  Luckily I had all the materials needed to complete the project.  Here are pics of the castle:

She also wanted to do a journal page while she was here, so we both created an art journal page.  I had a page in my weekend journal that had purple paint on it left over from a previous journal page, which I like.  She liked the journal page I created with the graffiti wall and wanted to do a similar journal page, so we broke out the stencils and the texturing paste.  After the texturing paste dried we then used spray inks on our pages.  I used a script stencil with the texturing paste and found a picture  of a rose and some quotes in my stash to complete my page.  Here is my finished journal page:

My granddaughter used a brick wall stencil with the texturing paste and found several words in my stash that she wanted to do tape transfers of the words to add to her journal page.  Here is her completed journal page:
We both had a lot of fun working on the castle and creating our journal pages.  Hope everyone has a great week.  Until next time, happy creating.
