WOYWW: Strip Ease

I've been following
Michelle Ward's
GPP Street Team
monthly creativity crusades
for some time now.
Her project ideas are great
and I always intend to do them,
but keep forgetting
with all the things that get in the way.
This month's crusade
is Strip Ease.
We're supposed to collect paper
from our stash,
tear into strips,
and attach to our page.
This is great
cause we get to use
leftovers!
(You might notice the candle-
we had a brownout
for a while
and I worked by
candlelight!)
My husband left to buy me a
Caramel Frapuccino!
Yumm!
Here's the
finished
journal cover.Thought I'd share
what I read from the Bible
this morning
about not being
fainthearted.
I used torn strips of paper too
for the face and background.

If you'd like to take a sneak peak
at what other people have on their work desk,
head over to Julia.
I guarantee you'll want to
join in on the fun!

  2. It't been awhile since I've been to Michelle's blog. This would be my kind of challenge. I love the results you got, too. I'm really trying to work with those colors right now, too.

    Did you draw the face? You are SO talented.

  3. Ooo I like that torn strips idea - might use that in my art journal! Nice to see the bible quotes too - you've got quite a witness going on there, and I loved visiting your desk.

  13. great cover, you should make an inspiration board to hang up, put all the ideas on there where you can see them and not forget them. Its been a long time since we had a powercut, I have a wind up torch for such emergencies, though a candle is much prettier.
