It's time again to join Art Journal Journey where our host Chrissie chose "Winter Wonderland" as the theme for January. I'm also joining Moo-Mania and More, whose theme is "Anything Goes." I believe I'm getting in just under the wire with this one.
I created this page in my Coll-AH-ge Too altered book.
I love sheet music, and vintage sheet music is even better. Although it has nothing to do with the actual theme, I couldn't resist using it.
I found this ski scene and knew it was the perfect insert for the heart.
I began by adding the sheet music to the altered book page, then cut a heart template that I laid over the winter scene. When I got the scene where I thought it looked best, I cut the heart using the template. I realized after I added it, that it didn't show up like I thought it should, so I drew around the heart using a sharpie. The words were computer generated, then I added a bit of brown ink (that looks red on my monitor) around the words.
