Me, sitting on a mountain of supplies. To be more accurate I should have shown me buried under that mountain. I'm trying to keep only what I actually use. I'm making progress, but although my work space is neater and more organized, I know I still have TOO MUCH STUFF. I guess there will be a round two of purging in my future.
This week the prompt is to include an envelope we received in the mail. I've been in a few mail art exchanges, so that was easy. In the process of purging, I uncovered a gratitude journal I started in 2000. I only did it for a couple of months, but I enjoyed reading what I wrote.
The green pocket was made from part of an envelope I received a couple of years ago from my friend Inge in Belgium. In it, one of the pages from my gratitude journal that spoke to me in a big way.
Every single thing on this page, except for the paint and the ink, was received in the mail from a friend.
Under the paint and the stamping are postage stamps, scraps from other envelopes, photos, funny advertisements.....all the things that we artsy folk like to send to one another. I think you can see some of those layers peeking through here:
Speaking of prompts.....in one of my groups (Blissfully Art Journaling), Teri has started to give a template as a prompt. Here is the current one:
As you can see, by using it I have killed two prompts with one page. So to speak.
