With the lack of a real spring, I have been consoling myself with some colorful pages in my Nature Journal.
I began this page by using remnants of a pretty napkin and some scraps from a book page. Then I put a few drops of some distress re-inker on the page and rubbed it in. Once dry, I used red paint and used an alphabet stencil to give it a little texture pop.
I added a little strip of paper tape and some trim at the bottom. The tan trim was
the edge of a thick piece cloth trim I used in another project. I wanted the scalloped edge but not this straight edge on my other page, but it works well here, so why waste the leftovers? Now for the big pop of color. I doodled my flower, colored it with markers and added it to the page along with a few little metal crafty bits that look like hardware.
I am linking up to Art Journal Journey and Allison's fun recycle and collage challenge.
All is well here. Maybe a little more warmth today, which would be great. I want to get out and do some raking, but it's been rather raw and chilly, and now today, when they say warmer, they say it could rain. Well I might be out in my raincoat raking, ha-ha. Only 1 more week to go before I head out on my big adventure and it is the one thing I would like to get done. We shall see.
Hope you have a happy day.
