This week I started Journal 52 and the first prompt was "Up, Up and Away".
First I looked for suitable quotes and found two I liked.
I had already gessoed and painted the backgrounds, then added stars with modeling paste and the quote.
The second quote called for a butterfly and I used the paint blot technique to create it.
I am also participating in Daisy Yellow's Creative Experiments Challenge.
I used the journal pages above to:
1. use a technique I am learning (using modeling paste)
2. create something to use in my journal (the butterfly)
I have also decided to take part in the Calendar Challenge at the Kathryn Wheel. I have tried this challenge but did not complete it. I hope to this year.
I stamped snowflakes over the blue background and used handmade pink and lt. blue rectangles for the days.
I also completed some ATCs today for a swap and they fit the challenge at Collage Obsession:
2014 -Year of the Horse
(These horses are the Canadian stamps for Year of the Horse.)
