assume an attitude

Good morning, friends.  Happy Saturday.  Beautiful and sunny today, but very windy.  It'll be fun driving to my lace guild this afternoon.

A while back, I posted this page, which is the beginning of an alphabetical art journal.  Yesterday, I worked on a spread for the letter 'A'.  Each letter is hand drawn and doodled by me and then cut out.  This one, I added a bit of vintage photo distress ink to.  I'm not sure exactly what each page will be, whether I'll just use words with that letter, or a quote, or saying.  This one I made a sentiment using mostly 'A' words.

The backgrounds all started the same way: gesso, part(s) of an old book page, paints, stencils.  From there, I guess it will just be what I'm in the mood for, or if I'm working on a specific challenge; whatever...

I pulled out a bunch of scraps of pattern paper and added bits and pieces.  I also punched out some flowers.  And, of course, I added a butterfly (SU).

Thanks for stopping in.  Have a great weekend.
