Happy new month everyone. Welcome to September.
First let me once again thank Chris for hosting at Art Journal Journey last month. And thank you everyone who joined us at Art Journal Journey. It was great to visit so many fascinating places in the world.
Seeing it is a new month, it is time for a new challenge at AJJ. This month I want to welcome the talented Elle who you probably know from her blog Empire of the Cat . Elle's challenge is
BOOKS, CATS and TEA
As Elle says in her write up, these are 3 of
her favorite things. They are some of my favorite things too, but I would have to add dogs in there as well as cats. 😏
I decided I would start this month using all 3 of those items in my journal page.
As Elle mentions on the AJJ homepage, your pages don't have to include all 3 of these prompts into your art. Your art may be just about tea, just about books or just about cats. Or any combination.
I used this book printed paper for my initial inspiration. After I made the background with paint, sprays and ink, I cut out some of the books from the paper to make this stack. The cats are stamped and fussy cut; I also colored in their eyes. Even though they look like tiny toy sized cats, I added 3 on the top of the book pile. Smile. I die cut the tea pot out of some blue paper. I inked the blue with black for some definition and added the polka dots, some steam, as well as the stamped quote.
Elle's challenge runs for the month of September. Please remember we only accept art journaling at Art Journal Journey. It can be any kind of journaling, but we do not accept cards, tags, ATC's, photographs that are not part of a journal page nor other forms of art.
I hope Books, Cats and Tea inspires you, and you make a page (or even better, more than 1 page) to join Elle as well as Elizabeth, Chris, Valerie and myself ( the admins) at AJJ this month. It should be fun to see everyone's take on this theme.
Have a great start to this new month.
I am also linking this post up to Nicole's Friday Face Off as there are 3 kitty faces on my page, and Gillena's Friday Art for Fun Lunch Break.
