The Joy of Cutting

Oh yes, the simple pleasure of cutting apart a magazine. If you're having a rough day and you can find a couple of minutes of free time,wow! Cut your little heart away. Then use some Glue and Seal and make a page from those cuttings-wow again-the best way to relax! 
Found these lovely ladies as tags in a FLOW magazine. 
And look what I found outside of my window today.





Winter is arriving  guess.
I hope you get to have your own cutting (or painting, drawing, sewing, knitting, cooking, traveling, reading, sleeping...) day today.

Linking this to Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Every Day.

Ciao!

Great collage - it really looks like you had fun!
The rest looks pretty chilly - but in a beautiful way. I love the snow on the hydrangea.

Snow!! So pretty because it is in your yard and not mine!! LOL

Love the idea of cutting out the girls and making them into an art journal page - great job!

love your portraits page! And oh my, the poor flowers...we got our first dusting of snow last evening.Thankfully so far my hanging baskets and potted geraniums are still hanging in there. I don't remember ever having them this long so if they do go that's OK!

I like your idea of relaxing by cutting and pasting. I should try it. I am not enthralled by the onset of winter with very little autumn. Happy PPF.

no! Snow!? Already? Yuk! I hope it stays away from here for a long time, and hopefully doesn't come at all .... Love your collaged page, I agree it's very relaxing to do this ....

Hi, I love your collage page. I checked out Flow magazine. Do you order it directly? I checked Google, Amazon and barnes & Noble and they don't seem to have it. Oh, no, snow! I think we are supposed to get some this weekend in the Chicago area.

Erika, I said those words this week myself! I have not cut images from a magazine for a long time. I looked at old journals which reminded me of what fun it is and got out my scissors and glue. Simple pleasure. I enjoyed seeing your collage and am not familiar with Flow magazine.
