Journal Spread

Don’t you love my snazzy, thought provoking blog titles? I never seem to get any better at them, LOL. Here’s yesterday’s journal spread, featuring my face from Tuesday. The flying fish is a stamp I carved ages ago and still love. The black and white paper on that side is the scrap paper I used as a cover sheet when making some crayon batik paper recently. The cover sheets came out as interesting as the actual batik paper, so I kept it. Not that I ever throw anything away. The black tag under the face is from my winter coat and I just ran some white out tape over it so I could write on it with black. I liked it because it is thick with a nice satin finish. The patterned paper under it is from a security envelope from the junk mail pile. The little black birds were a bit of cardboard that I cut out and stuck to the end of a pen so I could stamp it a few times. So, more than you really wanted to know, huh? :D

29 Faces day 14

Happy Valentine’s Day, my lovelies! I hope your day will be full of hugs and kisses and if not that, then at least some high quality chocolate. I drew today’s face with the online app Scribber. It’s  fun to play with, so go give it a try. I’ll be adding this guy to my journal today, if I get back from the vet in time.  I’m getting a little tired of the faces, to be honest. I want to draw imaginary animals or flowers or something, but I don’t have time to do both. Maybe it will only be a 14 day or 18 day or 20 day challenge for me but that’s still good practice.

29 Faces day 13

I had Carla’s January and February sidewalk crack photos sitting here on my desk, waiting for some attention. I decided to try to find a face in one of them for today’s 29 Faces challenge image. I usually spot animals but sometimes it’s faces. This is who I found hiding in the January one. If you want to see what you can find in the cracks, just sign up for the newsletter on Carla’s blog and she’ll send you a sidewalk crack photo each month.

Happy Birthday to me

Hubby made me a homemade cheesecake with yummy local strawberries on top. The real kind that you have to bake and it takes hours and the whole house smells like cheesecake. Mmm! There is blue sky outside my window. My son is home and will probably whoop me at a few games of Agricola or Settlers of Catan. It’s going to be a good day.

29 Faces day 10

Just time for a little funny face, today. I got a birthday card in this pretty yellow envelope and it was right here on my desk so I used it for today’s face. I’ll stick this in my journal later, but I’m out of time for today.
