Hi everyone. Happy September to you. 2023 is going by so fast, isn't it? I can't believe it is already September. Here in New Hampshire September is usually such a great month though, with cooler nights and not so many bugs either.
It is also time to start a new challenge at Art Journal Journey. First let me once again thank Chris for a great challenge last month, and also to say thank you to everyone who joined us in August.
For September we have a new host and new theme. I want to welcome the talented Neet, who you might know as Hickydorums as our new host. Her theme this month is
Fur and/or Feathers.
My first page is all about fur. Let me introduce Lady Gaga the cat. I named her Lady Gaga because like the famous performer known for some fabulous stunts and costumes, this cat likes to have her fur dyed, This time she added spots she could look more like a snow leopard.
My page was made by inking my background, stenciling on the numbers with a Sharpie and the flowers with some grey paint and a Sharpie, and then adding a piece of printed acetate. Lady Gaga the cat is made with a Dylusions stamp. I gave her a gold paper crown that I added a couple of little "jewels" too. Then I finished my page by adding the gold paper daisy trim and stamping the quote.
The quote is easier to read on the actual page as the images from the printed acetate show up better in the photo than they do when looking at the actual page.
Just a reminder about the "dreaded rules" at Art Journal Journey. We accept art journaling pages of any kind and any size, but no cards, tags, ATCs, etc. Your journal page can be made from paper, cloth, digital, or other journaling format you may use.
I'm looking forward to seeing all the fur and feather pieces this month!
