February is the month of love.

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.

  1. I began reading your opening remarks and thought how in the world would you know it was going to be hot in February, a month traditionally colder than December where I live. Then I realized you are in Australia, and it makes PERFECT sense. Congratulations on 48 years yesterday. That's a rare accomplishment in this day and age.

    I adore your incredible Hearts spread. Lots of love in that one, too. Such an adorable couple and it's apparent both are still in love, just like you. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey, too.
