Happy Friday everyone. This week has gone by fairly quickly, and it's almost the weekend again.
And no big Bomb Cyclone storms this week in my world. :)
For those you who don't live in my general area of the world, the weather has warmed up from the frigid arctic temperatures and wind we had been having. In fact today it is going to be over 50 degrees (10 degrees C). But we are suppose to get a lot of rain and it will be feel pretty raw, so even though it will be warmer it is not going to be a beautiful day. But I do hope the rain might wash away some of the snow still on my back deck and in my driveway.
But then tomorrow the cold will return (but not as cold as last week), so we could get some ice.
This January weather is quite the adventure.
And so that is the inspiration for my page for Art Journal Journey's latest theme, New Year: New Adventures.
First I drew and colored with some crayons my giant raindrops. My background is made from spraying various blue, silver and gold inks. Then I used white paint to stamp some snowflakes, and I added 3 plastic white snowflakes too. The number stickers show some of our recent temperatures, and I used some new pastels I bought to makes the blues squiggly lines. Finally I added some blue sequins, this little phrase I pulled out of a magazine and a small paper backed thermometer I had in my stash.
And I was very pleased with new pastels I bought.
The other day I stopped at the grocery store which is right next door to Hobby Lobby. Temptation got the better of me. But it was a good stop since I got this set of pastels on their markdown rack. The box was a bit beat up and 1 of the pastels was broken in half, but I got these pastels at 75% off. They were even cheaper than Amazon had them.
Now I can have some arty weekend adventures with those pastels. :)
Thanks for visiting and happy Friday!
