I was inspired by the upcoming Chinese New Year to make this page with an Asian flare. Then that got me thinking about traveling someplace fun or exotic, because the travel bug seems to hit me every January. Must be the short, cold, (and this year)grey and wet days.
No travel plans right now though. Or I should say, lots of traveling dreams and ideas but no definite plans right now. :(
So this background paper on my page is this ancient yellowed construction paper. I am guessing it used to be white. I have a whole stack of it which I think I found while going through some of my parents things when we moved my mom into an assisted living in 2015. I like how it looks so old and a bit stained.
So I created a collage with stamping, tape, paper scraps, die cuts, paint, metallic rub ons, some plastic gemstones and an old fortune I collected along the way.
I am linking up to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is Every Journal Page Tells a Story. And you can make up a lot of stories from this page.
Hopefully yesterday's ice isn't a big problem today. It was just nasty yesterday-strong wind, snow, ice, rain, more ice. We had a delay at school but I didn't want to deal with driving 35 miles with so many icy roads so I called in sick and stayed home. Then I couldn't get out of my way all day and spent more time lounging than doing anything. And I had a big stack of papers I really needed to grade since the semester is just about done and I have grades to get in. Oh well. There's always today.
Glad you stopped by to visit.
