We had one chilly day last week which was enough to make me bundle up a bit, think warm thoughts, and even make a Christmas tag:
Tag Tuesday (theme is "bookprint"), and the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Christmas Gift Tag). Products: manila tag; dictionary page; felt angel (JoAnne Stores); poinsettia sticker (Nicole); Vintage Photo Distress ink; Stickles Peeled Paint glitter glue; xmas ticket (and old freebie digital print).
with my favorite mug of Peet's coffee, warm cozy slippers and Cuddl Duds wrap. Believe it or not the cold only lasted the day and we have since had either high 60's F or low 70's F. Still haven't had to clean up my summer flowers:) Sharing my cuppa with you and the T Stands For Tuesday gang at Altered Book Lover. Take a peek and check the variety of posts and see what they are up to-and then join in!
The giveaway: You know I've been cleaning out everywhere. Well, I came across this chipboard book and just had to use it:
Fronts and backs of each "page":
Each side was covered with a decorative napkin. I did the eyes with paint markers. Printed and glued down some of my many favorite quotes, then sponged the edges with black ink. And guess what? I found another of these books-hence my giveaway!
If you would like a chance to win the book along with a selection of napkins please just let me know in the comments and I will choose a winner at random. Please note-this is only open to those with USA addresses. I went to check the cost at the post office before making this decision , and sadly it was ridiculously high to send overseas-despite the light weight and size!! Sorry.
And lastly I have a journal page inspired by the new theme this month at Art Journal Journey- 101 Ways to Keep Warm- hosted by Chris. Isn't it a lovely theme? Also sharing with Moo Mania and More (theme is Make it Feminine), Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #32, and of course, Paint Party Friday!
Products: gesso; acrylic paints; spray inks; dictionary page; white cardstock; stamps Wall Art Set-Wow!, Bokeh Set- Ellen Hutson, Scribble Faces-Dina Wakley; Tim Holtz layering stencil-Honeycomb; Crafters Workshop stencil; Archival inks- Buttercup, Jet Black); Fude Ball black pen.
That's it for now. Be well, be warm, and I'll be seeing you:)
