Hi Peeps! Winter has finally arrived with a vengeance in our parts 🥶. We got our first snow- thankfully only 3 inches, and a few days later a bit of freezing rain before it turned to rain- all day long. It's been quite gloomy and dismal, and this week is promising to be our coldest yet- barely making it to the 20's F for the high of the day(not to mention the wind chill factors which make it even colder)!! Yeah, I know, tis the season... so I'll just spend more time in my craft room 😁.
I was hoping to have some new supplies by now but that darned mail system is holding things up so I'll have to be patient. Hopefully next week I can share. I had won two gift certificates from two different companies - Simon Says Stamp, and Pink Fresh Studio! And of course I simply had to add a few extra things;) Hence the idea for this new journal spread:
It's in the Dina Wakley Kraft Journal. I only have a handful of pages to complete before this journal is full. Mostly Dina Wakley products were used along with a Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk sticker, and Paper Dolls. On the right page I used a stencil for the black leaf and cut around the outer edge. Joining in at Art Journal Journey for the theme of "Let's Face It".
That spread was done similarly to this page:
"We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives." Gary Zukhav
