Well, the weekend seems to be blowing in, and I do mean blowing. It is a very blustery day along with down poring rain.....brrr! A week break in the weather brought us beautiful sun shine and temps nearing 80' (F) and now????........not a good time to pack away the winter jackets. And everyone wonders why there are so many people sniffing, coughing and just feeling down right rotten.
Last week I finally got this week's journal pages finished.....before dashing off to the coast, but more about that later.
Of course this week is all done up in reds in honor of Valentine's Day and Art Journal Journey's 50 shades of red. This journal is treated more like a diary.....and the difference is????
I scraped the paint onto the pages with an old credit card, stamped the days and dates, and added some glittery washi tape. The shinny papers are from Hershey Kisses.......oh ya...chocolate!!
There is something about these individual wrapped candies, beside just being delicious. It is the shinny wrappers, and the challenge to get them off without tearing them....LOL! Ever since I can remember I have tried to unwrap them without tearing the paper.......am I the only one???
Hershey's started making the wrappers in colors to match the seasons, and even adding some designs. Remember when they were ONLY in silver wrappers??
The pink heart was a gift, but I fail to remember who sent it......my apologies if you reading this and it was you. I like the way it holds the two flaps shut, only being glued to the left side.
So this is what it looks like with the two flaps open.... a little boring, but lots of room to write.
Here are some definitions I found on the "net"....if your intersted....
If not, then thanks for stopping by.
So what is this? Diary? Journal? Art Journal?
(Oh, by the way my word for this year is LEARN)
