Hi everyone. It has been a quiet week in my world. I'm getting to know my new classes and working to get a rapport built up with the kids. So after busy work days (over 12,000 steps just at work each day), I've been pretty lazy when I get home, but I did manage last weekend to squeeze in a little bit of art time.
I wanted to link up one last page for Jo's Something New challenge at Art Journal Journey. Thanks Jo for this fun challenge. It was good to think about doing something new with art.
So today's page is about new and old. For the old it is about using an image in a new way. I began my page in my Nature Journal but coloring the cloth page. (It is a Dina Wakely Journal.) I used a dry brush and some ink to color the cloth. And for my central image, I used this card front I made a long time again. The image is made on glossy paper with some black stamped images and some ink coloring.
After I attached it I used some bits of tape, a sticker, and a piece of book scrap. I also added a few metal bits to finish off the page.
Finally I cut the quote out of this student travel brochure I recently received in my mail. I am not advertising or supporting the company at all, but rather than throwing out this book, I am using some of the super "quotes" in it.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
And thanks so uch for visiting my blog.
