February Blog Title and a Little More

So this past week has been busy and there's only been a bit of time for art.  Yet I did make one more blog header in my project to make a blog header for each month. This is for February, and I wanted a bit of a homage to Valentine's Day but not something typically traditional. But of course I had to add a few hearts because what is February without a bit of hearts?
And I also played with some snow paste. I actually took it out to make a bit of snow on another journal page I have yet to finish, when the  idea of a snowman hit me. So I made this holiday page
I have a little crush on my snowman. He looks round and snugly.

I had this roll of paper tape so I decided all this page needed to finish it off was to add the tape.
So I am linking this post of to Art Journal Journey, which is being hosted by the talented Valerie this month.
I am also linking up to Paint Party Friday which is hosted by Kristen and Eva.
And finally, I am linking up to Moo Mania, which is new one for me,
Thanks to these ladies for hosting such great internet art sites.
So thanks to everyone who left well wishes on my blog about my husband's doctor's visit the other day. Although we have no transplant date yet, we do feel like we are moving forward. Depending on the results of this visit's blood work, he may go back on some immune-suppression drugs. And at least we did see some improvement in his blood work since our last visit in October.
Everything is good as long as we keep moving forward, even if it feels like baby steps sometimes!
So I won't be posting to Paint Party Friday next week with it being Christmas, so for those of you who stop by from PPF, have a great holiday. For everyone else, I will have a few more posts before I check out for a little holiday break.
But I want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend and I want to thank you all for stopping by.

Love the effect of the snow paste and the tape is perfect too. Hard to think Valentine yet but it's also a nice piece. Merry Christmas Erika!

Lovely original art headers!
I have a thing for hearts and your snowman looks good enough to eat (maybe I needed to eat a bigger lunch ;-) ! )
I have had a nice time trying to catch up with you and all of your creativity this month.
Your journals must be a real joy to sit down with!!!

Give your snowman a hug from me, he looks very friendly.
Your February header looks great with the colourful circle, and I seriously love your current header too, so warm and welcoming.

I can tell you've been having fun! I love the idea of having a different header for your blog every month, and I love your jolly little snowman too. Blessings!

Great art pices.
Have a happy weekend xx

I have not changed my blog header since I revamped my blog. But I certainly can appreciate the idea that you have to change yours each month. I'm a BIG fan of hearts and appreciate that you included a few in the February header.

That's a simply adorable snowman. So dimensional and layered. Gotta love the little guy. I really like the "arms."

So glad to read that your husband's prognosis is moving forward. Thanks for the update.

I know I'll be by before then, but I want to wish you a merry Christmas now.

Snow paste is so fun to use. I liken it to Cool Whip! It makes a great snowman. And the tape adds just the right festive touch! Merry Christmas.

I still get a thrill when I visit the new header! Love what's coming to and can't wait to see how it feels being greeted by all the new gorgeous images!! Wonderful Snowman, great texture... I have been making digital ones for instagram.. Wishing you and hubby all the best!! Merry Christmas to you!

Hugs Giggles
