Today was my youngest niece's birthday. She turned 9 today, they are all growing so fast. Anywho, we made her birthday cards with stickers and rub-on words and put made with love on the backs of them. Awwww!! Wasn't that a sweet idea from one cousin to another. I made sure they got to play together for a couple hours when we took the gifts over. I finished up today's page after lunch at McDonald's and taking the granddaughter home.
Misty Mawns January Journal Challenge has completely different themes this week. I enjoyed today's. This is the first time I have sewn on paper, by hand. I haven't had the courage to put paper through my sewing machine yet. Today's theme was "add buttons, thread and fabric to your journal page". Here's what I came up with.....
The overall theme is about being different. Notice how the tic tac toe seems to be the red squares and yet the buttons are going the other direction. And also notive two of the buttons are 4 hole and the center one is a two hole. being different can be a good thing.
Here is the list for this weeks Journal Challenge as suggested by Misty Mawn:
Monday - embellishments. buttons, beads, fabric added to the page.
Tuesday - word art. focus on one word... create a page around that word.
Wednesday - altered photo. take one photo of your own, alter it any way you wish
Thursday - crayons only day... nothing else. explore your inner child. ;-)
Friday - create a work of art /journal page inspired by your favorite artist.
Saturday- share your art... make a piece of art as a gift today, give it away.
Sunday - shapes. pick one shape and go from there.
I would think tomorrow would be easy but I haven't come up with a single idea yet. Hmmmmm! Guess I'll have to sleep on it.
