Moo-Mania and More meets Art Journal Journey during AEDM


I want to begin by saying this entire post is and was inspired by my friend Susi at Froebelsternchen.

I began by getting out these two stamps, my solvent ink, and a wet wipe I had painted and allowed to dry.  However it didn't take long to realize the rocking horse was too large for what I wanted to create.  The bicycle, gifted me by my friend Chris at Pear Shaped Crafting was the perfect size, though.

"Let's Rock and Roll" is a tribute to Moo-Mania and More's latest theme "Wheels" and Art Journal Journey's latest theme which is hosted by Susi who wants us to create collages where we aren't allowed to use faces, leaves, or wings.

I think this qualifies for both Moo-Mania and More and Art Journal Journey (unless the rocking horse faces disqualify the entry) and provides a bit of humor in the process.  I also think those of you who follow Susi's blog know how and why I was inspired by her art.



Today is Day 5 of AEDM.  Thank you for visiting.  Your visits mean more to me than you know.  However, unless you have a blog or web site, I can't visit you or leave comments, since I'm not on Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, Pinterest, or other social media sites.

This really rocks! Two horses on a bycicle - and because of the double-lines it seems like they are indeed moving!

Being limited in the challenge like that, I think you made a really good choice.....it's almost perpetual motion. :)
