For Week 40 at Journal 52, Chelle's prompt was Trees. If you're a long time viewer, follower, or reader of my blog, you know I had to create this entry.
I've shown this poem before, in fact last year at Journal 52. However, this year the background (a used file folder) was fraught with peril. Peril to my carpet in my craft room, that is. I hate to admit it, but I was spraying the green on the substrate, when the sprayer came loose, slipped out of my hand, and spilled all over the carpet, completely missing the four anti-static mats I have on the floor to protect said carpet.
This was a poem I wrote when I was eleven and it was printed in a teen magazine. You would think I would go on to write more poetry, but that is the only one I've ever written, although I created one haiku, which I guess is a poem of sorts.
The mess at the bottom bled all over the substrate, but I waited for it to dry before I stamped the three trees. The tree was part of a set, which included the one tree and leaves of different kinds. I'm not sure where I got them, although I think from the thrift store. I looked and the tree (and I assume the leaves) is from Stampington.
The "40" stands for the week number, and I'm on a mission to bring back those decorative edge scissors we all bought many years ago and only used once or twice. I have over a dozen of them, and this one is by Fiskars and is the deckle edge.
Thanks for looking and please feel free to join in at Journal 52, where you don't have to buy anything special to create journal art. Again, your lovely comments make my day!
