Come February and most people are look at love, hearts and roses. My Husband and I got married in February,. No, not on St Valentine's Day, in fact I don't think we even knew about it way back then. February 5th was chosen because I wanted a hot day, Dad said pick the first Saturday after the kids go back to school, it is always hot. Now, looking back over 48 years, I think this is the only year where that Saturday has been cold.
I have made a mixed media double spread in this year junk journal to celebrate the 48 years. The images are from Twistoon (formerly Bloobel), Lisa is running a monthly progressive challenge on her FB page
. Check it out and have some fun with her drawings. There is a freebie each month and a discount for other images.
I chose Oh No Nannette for my freebie this month and thought I needed a groom, so I bought Heart Spring to go with Nannette,
So much going on, don't know If I will remember everything, gesso, acrylic paints, water soluble pencils and pastels, inks, permanent markers, paint pens and a stamp. Lots of my scribble both written and doodled.
Both the images have been coloured with copic pens and pencils. Clothes are paper pieced, (seen to be doing a lot of this at the moment). For Spring Heart, the heart has also been paper pieced and fussy cut, I have drawn in the spring (it is on the image) and added the heart with a wobble spring.
