For those of us celebrating Independence Day July 4th let us remember those who are serving, have served, will be serving our country to protect and preserve the land of the free. God bless America. It's also a big travel day for many so please drive safely.
For my 52 Weeks of Creative Abundance online class our instructor Christi introduces a new word/theme for the month. She also shares a tag project. "Explore". Christi spoke of taking time to nourish our souls by exploring. Perhaps there's a little shop in town you pass by but have never taken the time to go in and explore. Perhaps you want to learn something new but have never taken the time to explore taking a class and nourishing your spirit... I actually have been doing just that the last few months in my home town by visiting local museums with a friend. For my tag I decided to explore BIG by listing some of the top places I wish to visit some day.
Glued postcard patterned paper(K & Company) to my journal page. Whitewashed the page. The tag was created using decorative paper, stamps and washi tape. Edges all sponged with Distress Tea Dye ink (Ranger) then glued in place.
I'll be back Friday to share my Summer of Color project, some art journal pages, and my visit to a local art museum to see the very special Toulouse Lautrec exhibit. Off to follow le Tour de France on TV for my chair side trip all over France. Tout a l'heure!
