How is everyone? I do hope the predicted snowstorms the US this past weekend didn't wreak too much havoc. I cancelled Bill's birthday dinner because we were warned of up to 8" of snow changing to a freeze up once the gusting winds would arrive along with single digit temps. Thankfully we only got about 1 1/2 inches of snow but the winds came and everything was iced up. Good thing is that this is a federal holiday today (Monday) - Martin Luther King Jr. Day- so many have the day off from work and school. This morning when I got up the winds were still howling and it was 6 degrees F with a wind chill of 14 F below zero- now THAT IS COLD!!! And as you can see I am all bundled up and yes, wearing fingerless gloves while having my morning coffee and reading. Oh how I wish I had a fireplace...I'll try and stay warm by visiting friends at T Stands For Tuesday.
This tag is meant for Tag Tuesday (theme is "mail/postmarks/postage stamps") and Try It On Tuesday (theme is "something old, something new") I used a new Tim Holtz Layering Stencil (Plaid) for the background with Tea Dye Distress ink. Other products; washi tapes; Versafine Onyx Black ink; Text stamp is an OLD rubber stamp from Acey Deucey; Tim Holtz paper dolls; reused postage stamp.
I've been working on some Valentine cards and this one is meant for the Simon Wednesday Challenge of "Clean and Simple":
yes, here again is my new Tim Holtz Plaid Layering Stencil I 've been playing with ;) Other products: small white notecard; Distress ink- Worn Lipstick; XOXO computer generated; felt hearts, foam hearts- Michaels.
And for Art Journal Journey where Alison is the hostess this month with the theme of "Geometric Shapes", and Paint Party Friday I have this journal page to share:
I have also done this collage in 15 minutes using my stash of ephemera for the Instagram challenge to "use it up, fill it up" in 15 minutes. These bits were practically together already when I opened my container so it was meant to be!
Wishing you all a warm, happy, and creative week wherever you are.
