Welcome blogging friends! Gosh, can you believe we nearing the end of the first week of November and that Thanksgiving is only 21 DAYS away?? GASP!!!
Art Journal Journey has a new challenge for November......NO FACES, NO WINGS, NO LEAVES but COLLAGE Susi's choice this month.....isn't she a clever one? No faces, no wings, no leaves.....Making us step out of our comfort zones....Bravo Susi!
I decided to break out a new journal that has been sitting on the shelf....from back when Michael's had a super sale on them......buy one get two free..........I mean, really would you have passed that sale up??
I chose to use a paper weave for the background, this is an old scrapbooking technique, but was just brought back to my attention when I joined up with The Inspiration Place.
Speaking of Michael's Craft Store........ I dashed in there yesterday to pick up some white alcohol ink and walked by one of those isle bins that had a sign that said TODAYS SPECIAL....and it was those huge 12" X 12"designer paper packs for $5.00!!!!!! They are regularly $19.99......without a coupon. Well I think my paper stash is down to about 60 or 70 pounds, so I picked up 4 new packs.
My rule of thumb: You can NEVER have too much pretty paper.......or glue......or paint.....or stamps...or markers......well, you get the idea! LOL!!!
