Taking The Craft Barn Challenge

The challenge over at the Craft Barn Blog  is  MARRIAGE and/or AGE.  I have never entered one of their challenges but I was inspired by Elizabeth at The Altered Book and thought that I might just give this a go, and so I chose AGE.

This is actually the first page of a new journal, and I am thinking this journal may just be about quotes or prompts, but we will see how things turn out.  Anyway I thought AGE would be a good first page prompt.  I had already made the background with left over gesso, paste, inks and etc.  I did added a little more yellow and some red that turned pink....LOL  I found this picture in a magazine and knew right away it was what I wanted to represent my (me) page. I wrote a quote from Margaret Atwood over the picture, that I THINK says it all about me!  Then I continued to doodle more quotes  around the page.  This was a great challenge, check it out, there is still almost a month to join.  It doesn't have to be a journal, it can be most anything.
Happy journaling

  2. I like this. I always hated quotes then in some journal class I got into it. I now collect words and phrases from mags and flyers and fins it great fun. I picked up journal52 after reading about it on Elizabeths blog.

  6. I love the I believe everyone else is an adult and I am merely in disguise quote. I totally feel that way. I have a friend from high school and from time to time we compare notes on if we grown up yet. Neither of us has kids and we wondered if having them made you feel grown up. I definitely feel more adultish than I used to.

    In fact I have a funny story about this. I went to lunch with a friend and she went the rest room. A nice older gentleman (probably my age but he was obviously an adult) came over and started chatting with me, sort of hitting on me. I had a moment of panic, "Oh my god! He's mistaken me for an actual adult!!!"
