Happy Monday from chilly New Hampshire. Our temperatures are back down into the VERY cold mode once again.
And Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day to all of those in the US.
My journal page today is another winter inspired page. Today's adventure is about going outside in the cold. Since it is a holiday and I don't have to go to work, and since it it also cold again, I probably won't go outside today. OK, I don't mind a little cold but I don't like it much below 20 degrees F (-6 degrees C). And since it is below 20 degrees, I will just stay inside and stoke the woodstove and make a little art.
My art adventure today was making a page that feels cold. I used this blue and white gelli printed background. Then I drew and painted the cold winter wind swirls. I also used some spray sparkle (Glitter Dust) on my background at this point. You can see the effect on the top of the page better than on the bottom, but I wanted the page to look like there was snow blowing around, which often happens on these windy winter days.
Plus my page is an adventure in blue. I have decided to try making some pages that are a little more monochromatic.
Then I added the rest of the ephemera, including a cardboard cut out star, some TH found relatives, some old postage stamps, some letter stickers and 3 felt snowflakes.
So I am linking up to the Frosty Winter theme at Moo Mania and also to the New Year: New Adventure theme at Art Journal Journey.
I hope you have some arty adventures to share with us also, even if they aren't based on cold winter days.
And thanks for visiting my blog too.
I appreciate you stopping by.
