I’ve been digging around in the bags of old clothes and jeans that I save for projects. Kids outgrow them, a knee gets torn up, a tee shirt gets worn out. It all ends up in my bags of Art Fodder™, thrown out in the stacks in my garage…
So I found some cute sparkly jeans, and a denim drawstring from some unknown pair of jeans, long ago separated from its counterpart.
As I played in my art journal today, thinking about Valentine’s Day and all that my hubby means to me, I ended up writing more than I intended to write before I photographed the pages, lol. So I’m sharing with you one side of the spread, and just a closeup of the drawstring on the other side of the spread.
The cute tiny marriage certificate from an antique bridal book and the love letters are scanned, re-sized, and printed from my stacks of ephemera.
I needed some play time in my journal today. And writing another mash note keeps my hubby walking around smiling.
Prompt: Focus on what your significant other means to you. Paint or color your journal page while you’re thinking. Let the colors and/or words come to you as you’re pondering. And how could you use some old jeans to make something fun in your art journal??
