For Week 45 of the hugely popular Journal 52, hosted by Chelle, we were supposed to, in Chelle's words:
. . . think of what it’s like to be a kid again – full of imagination, ideas, and creativity and dreams for the impossible!It was with that thought in mind
that I created "My Play Day." This entire page was created in my imagination and the images I found in my stockpile.
My internet friend Helen asked me to use some of my background paper I created as the first stage of a masterboard (seen here in case you missed it on Day 6 of AEDM), and although I already had plans for most of the pages, I obliged and cut a few ends in order to write my "journaling" words. Unfortunately, I cut too much off two of the pages, so had to make more today, too. Thankfully, they are fun to make now that I know how to do it.
This is Bethany, my play day friend who has come to visit.
Bethany and I drew pictures and rode on my rocking horse. It wouldn't be MY play day real OR imagined without a rocking horse!
Of course, we had to play outside in the snow, where we built a snowman. The snowman then showed us how to make snow angels. He was a real angel himself!
It was time to head back inside before we got too cold. Of course, in order to warm up, we made a pot of strong tea and drank it while we discussed what a fun day we'd had.
One final look at My Play Day where I began with a painted used file folder, then added three bits from the background I created on Day 6 of AEDM. To that I added four magazine images taken from various places, and a Christmas card from my stash. I hope you can read my handwriting, because it's gotten even
As always, I greatly appreciate your continued support of my art endeavors during this month of November. Today is Day 9 of Art Every Day Month, or AEDM and I created an imaginary Play Day with a friend for Week 45 of Journal 52. Unfortunately, Journal 52's linky has gone walk about, so this and AEDM are the only places you will see this entry that I forgot to mark with the week number until after I scanned it.
