As the Memorial Day weekend continues, I want to share one more "Journey," which my dear friend Erika, aka BioArtGal, this month's host at Art Journal Journey, chose as the theme.
For this journal page, I tried to create a bit of humor amid the devastation of my basement.
My back yard could float a boat about now.
Materials used include a used file folder for my substrate, an image from a European travel magazine, a micron ink pen, three flower stickers, and a gifted butterfly.
I began this month working on Valerie's birds for our six person swap, then transitioned to flowers, which was a big part of Chris's garden theme. About mid-month, I realized I needed to show a bit of patriotism, too. So the decorations this month, all stickers except the tea cup stamp, were as scattered as my thoughts and projects. I needed to get this on my blog or it could be next week before I would have a chance to post it. Obviously, I have not decided on my T post yet.
June's page is ready to fill in once I have completed May. As usual, I will decorate the calendar as I better know what inspires me art wise.
I greatly appreciate your visit and continued support of my art. And although I am no longer linking my calendar pages anywhere, I hope you will join me in the final days and hours of Art Journal Journey.
