This feels so out-of-my-box and yet I can't remember when I felt so much joy! This week's prompt at *Tyggereye Art Love* is, "Clearly..."
There was very little thinking involved for my page. (I can hear you saying, "clearly" sarcastically...be nice!) I did not know how to finish the prompt, but I took the prompt literally...I started with my acrylic sheet . I embossed it with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I had a xyron'd piece of white card stock left over from my quilt cards, and I decided to cover it with paper strips. I have not used my Michaels clearance Friendly Forest papers in a while, so I covered the card stock with these scraps and ran it through the top not die. I took my chocolate chip marker and put tiny dots in between the faux stitches. Next to my Friendly Forest papers, I have some woodland creature rub-ons (by October Afternoon). I saw, "just having fun" and I knew how I wanted to finish the prompt. I used Making Memories rub-on alphas to spell "Clearly" and "Art". The white for "clearly" did not show up well on the lime green floral print, so I traced the letters with my chocolate chip marker. I used a white gel pen for "is", then traced it too.
I seriously had so much fun making this! I wasn't going to participate in the weekly prompts at first because I thought I just don't have the time. Yet we all are capable of making time for things we really want to do. I have to thank Tyggereye and LFL (lovely friend Lauren) for inspiring me to make time for myself to do these little art journal pages. I enjoy participating in challenges and making cards for my friends, but I don't make crafts for me. I can't wait until Saturday for our next prompt!
