Art: Journaling in July: page 1

Today was a pretty good day. It was comfortable as far as weather goes, the kiddo was behaving, Mom and Dad were in a good mood, Mom and I went through the rest of her boxes full of craft supplies. So over all a really good day. And then...

It all went down hill from there. Kiddo broke his being good streak, my sister pissed me off and we got into an argument. So instead of working on the pages I had already painted the background on, I decided I needed to de-stress and work on a different page. 

I worked on the title page, just inside the front cover. And this is what I came up with. I have to apologize, my lighting in my craft space isn't the greatest so the colors are a bit washed out in the photos. I'll have to find a better place in the house to take pictures I think.

The faery sits inside the little window. I glued a few of the pages together a few nights ago and cut out a little window tonight for the faery. I love dragonflies. I drew the one that is on the page and cut out its wings from vellum and glued the center onto the dragonfly and left its wings free from the page.

And a close up of the page.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. Working on the page was a great way to de-stress. I can say I'm cool as a cucumber now :)

Happy Crafting!
