Hi everyone. Happy Friday.
I had a busy week, and it flew by. I'm actually looking forward to being home all day today with no place I must go. The good news is my bees shipped yesterday. The bad news is the weather people say we have rain moving in for most of the entire weekend. The rain is much needed and not a bad thing, but of course, the rain isn't really wanted by lots of people as it is a long holiday weekend here in the US.
Today I want to share a page from a found journal. Last month I was doing a bit of attic cleaning out when I came across a bin filled with some journals I had made a long time ago. I've showed you a few already.
Today I have a page from an old journal (probably from around 2000) I made but that I have never posted before. The journal has an ocean theme which is one of my favorite topics. This spread's rhyming words work perfect for a language theme.
Since I have never posted this book before, I think it should be OK to link this page up to Elle's language challenge at Art Journal Journey. My other co-admins can let me know if this doesn't work, and I'll take it down.
My daughter had a children's book where the whole story was about kids doing things and using rhyming words to tell about what they were doing. You can tell I made this spread a long long time ago because my daughter is now 29 and who knows where the book ended up.
I remember having a lot of fun making this page and coming up with all the beach rhymes. I may have to do this again sometime soon.
The background is 2 sheets of mostly matching paper cut to size and glued down on the original book pages. The phrases are printed on acetate and then cut out and glued. I made the water at the bottom out of blue paper, torn and then edged with glitter glue. And I added a mini tag with a quote just to finish off the page.
Here's a few of other photos from that same journal. I'll share more some other time.
Hope you enjoyed the art and also have a wonderful start to your weekend.
