Art Journal February 2011
As this month is almost over, I thought it was high time to start my February calendar pages. Used some freebie papers from *Scrapbook* magazine. I didn't like the papers much, but cut into small pieces, I like them better. For the 14th I cut a TH heart and wings out of a piece of scrap paper. The sentiments (Sizzix die cuts) have been cut from scraps of white cardstock and used to spray a negative image on the edges, and then, after drying, to add the *positive* words, a 2-for-1 effect. The month has been inked with a stencil, the weekdays have been printed onto some scraps of coordinating, patterned paper. Did some random stamping, to which I added a spot of stickles, and that was it.
It was, as always, fun to make, and this month I have been enjoying making short, positive comments every day, then every day has something positive about it, if only that it is over and it's time to go to bed....But seriously, nearly every day has some good times, and it's important, for me, to remember these moments, and not just the bad ones. I think I remember a song from my past which went *Even the bad times are good....* - by the Tremeloes?
So, here's wishing you all a good day! Thanks for looking!
