Hi everyone. Today's post is a country themed one.
I am sharing a page with Neet's TYPE challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I made a collage of various items, including a copy of a typed recipe card that was made into a tag, as well as this typed quote.
I have my grandmother's typed old recipe cards, including a few for our favorite desserts she used to make. They are cherished by me because I can not only imagine her handling and making the cards, but I can still taste her food. Like me, my Nana enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. Here's a random couple out of the collection I have.
None of these original cards were cut or glued in making my page. It must have been popular to type the recipes out at one time. It must have been that lots of homes had typewriters in them.
On my journal page I also stamped the beets and carrots onto this stained piece of ledger paper. I cut the basket of veggies out of a sticker you would use on some homemade canned goods. The tiny fork that is attached with twine is something that came in a paper ephemera packet. I also added the lace mini doily and also some white metallic paper trim. If you've been wondering about all the metallic paper in my art lately, it is because Susan who runs The Stamp Diva online store, is going out of business and has had her entire site at a 30% markdown for months now. Every month or 2, I've been buying some of her metallic paper trims and images. They used to be easy to find, but not any more, and so I figured I should grab them while I can not only get them, but get them 30% off.
And since we are on the farm today, how about some photos of the animals I saw when I went to the Sunflower Festival at Coppal House Farm?
That's all for me this post.
Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope you are having a nice day.
