Hi! What a cold day it is today here in Aberdare. The snow has been falling all evening, making it a cold morning to wake up too. I have an intolerance to the cold and this weather plays havoc with my joints. I can wear gloves and craft but its a nightmare to draw or write with gloves on. Enough of my grumbling your here to join me in the celebration of the good things in my life not the miserable things.
Today I would like to share with you My new Art Journal/Sketch book and a small book that I made to celebrate Me.
There is a challenge over at http://sarahhurleychallenges.blogspot.com/ to Celebrate the good things about oneself.
So this is what I would like to share with you.....................
|My first page of my Art/sketch book.|
|A doodle of a bird.|
On This page I have attached an Atc that I made to represent self. The title of the Atc is Me, Myself and I.
There is a sticker of an artist within the paint palette holding a paint brush. There are words around the edge, to represent my personality. e.g Feisty, Faithful, Energetic, Genuine girl, inquisitive, smart and mom. There is also a peel off of a pair of boots on the Atc. These were added as I like boots of various designs and used to wear different types of boots when I was able. Now they are just collecting dust at the bottom of my wadrobe. Many pairs have only ever been worn once.
The paper behind the Atc was stamped with various flourishes of mine and then I doodled a green bird behind this to match the green on the edging of the Atc.
I have also a small book to show you with a little more detail of Who I am. or should I say The things I like about myself.
|The writing reads I am s Seeker of the truth.|
|The writing below the eyes reads VISAGE.|
I am Observant.
I am sightful.
|The writing reads I am creative.|
I am a Poet.
I am an Artist.
I am Unique.
I am a Mother of two grown up sons.
I am honest
I am trustworthy
I am a good friend.
