|I haven't cross-stitched in forever, but I saw this awesome Halloween cross-stitch magazine & fell in love! I just HAD to buy it. So, this is my first project. A little decoration for Ashley to hang up in her dorm room.|
Alli pulled out her water colors the other night & started messing around....doing some abstract art. She wasn't sure if she liked it or not, so I told her NOT to crumple it up & throw it away....if she didn't want it she could please give it to me. I'm sure he will find his way into my art journal.
|Speaking of Alli's art work in my art journal.....I ran across this old picture she had drawn me for Thanksgiving back in 2009. I cut it apart & used it in my journal.|
|Just a spread with some doodling. Seems I had some kind of circle theme going on. Lots of sharpie love.|
|Notice the date.....10*11*12.....I hadn't even noticed until someone on some blog pointed it out. Thought that was pretty cool. Paper layers & then lots of acrylic paint.|
Watercolor base.....I was cleaning up Alli's little paint tray after her dog-painting session & decided just to dip my brush in some water & spread what was left on my journal page. No waste. ;-) Next I added a note that Ashley had written to Clay.....I love saving everyone's handwriting. Wrote my journaling on a little journaling spot & added it in with some washi tape. Then I pulled out some of my faom stamps & my acrylic paints & stamped the date & those flowers. Oh & notice the saved postage stamp down in the bottom left corner.
