I'm really enjoying the slow pace this week between Christmas and New Year's. We've been taking time to just relax and enjoy not having to be anywhere at any given time. We've gone to the movies and hung out at home, and today we're heading into the city to view the Warhol and Matisse exhibits at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. One's closing on Monday, and the other just opened earlier this month, so we're excited to catch some 'old' and 'new' all at once.
I've also been playing in my art journal (of course!) and am so glad to be part of the Eclectic Paperie design team, where just next week we're going to start hosting two challenges per month. The first will be an Altered Art challenge beginning on January 3rd, and the second will be a DT member's choice begining on January 17. We're calling that one the eTeam Picks Challenge. I am hosting and get to choose the theme for the first one on January 17th... hope you'll join us! (You can sign up for email alerts of EP blog updates here.)
This page was made with the Sizzix Word Play die, Donna Downey's new Wayward Blooms stamp, a Sizzix texture fade, joint tape from the hardware store, Color Wash by Ranger, and lots of inks, stamps, and stencils. Here's a close-up on the texture from the tape (on the tag) and the texture fade folder (on the letters):
