2 page spread

Here's a 2 page spread from my art journal, I think I never like the 2 pages as well as just a single page. I guess I need to work small!

Black and White Collage

I meant for this to be all black & white with the hint of neutral in the number cards, but as you can see I accidentally bled some reddish paint from another collage onto this page. Whoops! I still love it though, mostly how those large numbers really take over the page.

Shared at Glue It Tuesday and Art Journal Every Day!

Pure and Healthy Collage

I like this one more in person that I do in the photo, not sure why! The more I look at it, the more I think it isn't quite done yet. :)

Spring Door Hanging

I made this 3 part hanging to put on our front door in place of my tired, old, faded Spring wreath! Each panel is chipboard, and the papers are SEI Field Notes, along with some random odds & ends I found in my craft room. This really brightens up the front door!

Decoupage Spring Tray

This tray started life as a wood box that our Melissa & Doug toys came in. Rather than throw out or recycle the box, I painted white with a touch of yellow, and decoupaged it with some SEI Field Notes papers.  After seeing the tray, I think I'm going to add some little feet on the bottom to raise it up a bit off the table.

The bottles are beer bottles rescued from the recycling bin and painted, then covered with some trim I already had.

Total cost for both is ZERO as everything is from the recycling bin & on hand in my craft room.
