Wish it. Dream it. Do it.
I look forward to Tracy's Creative Challenge each month. I was so looking forward to the Mixed Media Monday Night Coaster Swap but with having to have surgery and Brooke having so many issues with her teeth I didn't think I could swing it. I was really disappointed but Tracy said she'd have more swaps and I was looking forward to seeing all the pictures. Imagine my surprise when I get a package of my own. These awesome artsy ladies have the sweetest hearts! It was a totally rough day and Brooke and I were heading for her to get her expander put on and she was really nervous. What an uplift that package was to me! I already felt that art journaling could help bring healing in it's own way but it also brought some of my most wonderful and caring friends. I'll try to take pics of the soon and share them on the blog. For now......I'm going to share my February Challenge art journal page.
I used Americana white paint (by Deco Art) in my homemade gesso, script wrapping paper, baby wipe I painted with and dried, paper tape, Basic Grey die cuts and transparencies, Plaid/Folk Art Inspiration stencil, charcoal pencil, a plain old school pencil and a walnut stain Distress Ink Pad. :-) The red is just an envelope I put behind it to take the picture. I wasn't real happy with it at first but the more I worked on it....the happier I got. Check out Tracy Weinzapfel's blog and join in on the fun!
