Journal time

A cloudy Saturday meant I was able to continue what I started on Friday for art prompts galore where the following was our prompt:


Your Scavenger Hunt Journal List for May 6-12 is:

3 squares
an image or drawing of something white
a flower
something from space
a creature from the sea
patterned paper
black ink 
Here's what I created....
I haven't used the square background block in many a moon!

My thoughts had to turn to another challenge at journal 52: balance (bonus add a feather) and it went a bit crazy to say the least! I wanted to show the good things in my life balanced against the not so good/ less liked!

I started by making a list & then wrote subjects on feathers diecut from more of my mop-up scraps.

I stamped onto acetate to create jars....the stamping failed in so far as it was a bit faint & my Stazon was totally dried up :-( but hey-ho, sharpie to the rescue....
And here's how the page ended up...complete with JOY-O-METER!

I made a start on another page but as summer finally happened on Sunday I was mainly in the garden so this is as far as I got...

And my inchie...Brain! Yes it's a bit much for an inch I agree but I ros to the occasion...

Well, enough taxing my brain for now....I'm going to see what sleeping brings me in the way of inspiration for DLP this week!
