My friend Erika is hosting Art Journal Journey this month, with her "Every journal page tells a
story" theme. It can be interpreted so loosely, it gave me the opportunity to create something with a bit of humor. And I needed a bit of humor (and something quick) today because I spent far too long trying to get my new home phone system installed. It also allowed me to use up some of my leftovers from previous projects, too.
Snowmen fall from the sky unassembled! You can't argue with that logic.
As I began assembling this spread, I ran out of glue. I also ran out of glue dots.
So, other than the glue I used on the small snowflakes, the pieces are held together with a prayer. A huge prayer, in fact!
Rubber stamped images were used for the snowman.
I hand wrote the sentiment.
I started with a premade holiday card front that I added little clear plastic snowflakes to. The sentiment was hand written, then added to the substrate, an 8.5 X 11 inch background left over from Christmas tip-ins. Finally, I added the snowman and snowflake stamped images on a purple background. Now all I need to do is punch three holes in the left side and add it to my journal pages.
Thanks beyond belief for visiting today and thanks to Art Journal Journey where the journal art is always the BEST!
