Siren Songs and Polka Dots
First off, I've created a new collection for Alisa Jane. This collection is called "Siren Song". I'm loving these polka dotted papers!
I'll be listing these three journals in the shoppe today and will hopefully have a few more items for this collection by the end of the week. We'll see. I need to get on the ball and get my "Christmas in July" project for the Cottage Style Street Team started and completed before we leave for St. Croix in a couple of weeks.
I guess because it's summer and because of our vacation destination, I can't seem to get the sea out of my head. I cannot wait to get into that gorgeous blue water! I know there will be a lot of diving being done while we are down there, but even though I dive, my favorite outdoor activity next to riding my sweet pink bicycle is snorkeling. Like riding my bike, I can snorkel all day long. Even the farmboy can't keep up with me!
Anyway, that leads me to my latest art journal page. So Teresa had two techniques she wanted us to try with this one. Pointillism and spelling out a phrase within our journaling.
Back to that sea-thing again! I have to admit that even though I am quite pleased with how this turned out, I did not enjoy it in the least. It was a little to tedious for me and for some reason I actually stressed over it a little bit. Maybe because I was afraid of screwing it all up. I don't know... it was a fairly easy technique for me to do. Who knows! Despite how I felt while doing it, I haven't been able to keep my hands off of it since it dried. I love feeling all of those little dots under my fingertips.
And speaking of dots again. I can't seem to stop with the polka dots either! I've liked polka dots for a long time, but I'm really liking them right now. I can't seem to get enough! In fact I just bought a new pair of polka dotted flip flops (too stinkin' cute!) and I think it's time to make a new apron. A red and white polka dotted apron. I bet I'd cook better and more often in one of those! ;)
