Anything But The Lively Sort: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
Not So Lively
Things have been lively here for the past week but not in the way one might expect when you have 3 children. Thanks to a nasty sinus infection and an outbreak of hives (going on day 5 today), I have been a tired and irritable mama. (Sorry,kids) Despite my being under the weather, I have to brag on my littles. I woke up Saturday morning with puffy hands and sausages for fingers (thank you, hives). Because I couldn’t bend my fingers normally, my sweeties helped me open packages, set the table and cook breakfast. When I decided to lay down for a nap, they came and put a few extra blankets on me and tucked me in. They even went around whispering so they wouldn’t disturb me. I had to laugh when I heard them fighting in whispered tones over who would make the sandwiches for lunch.
So, I am taking it easy laying around, reading books and shopping online. I am looking forward to getting up and about, even if it includes laundry and cleaning. Being under the weather makes me very thankful for overall good health.
Creating the Journal Layout
I have created another layout in my daughter’s art journal. The background was made using the Collage Textures and Patterns, Circles stencil with Fresco Finish Paint and the Chinese Background stamp.
The layered were made from recycled projects and my scrap stash. I sprayed PaperArtsy Infusions, added some thread and used some Lindy’s Embossing powder.
Today’s tea is WHITE PINEAPPLE WONDER by TIESTA TEA. I had it once before and it was so delicious that I added it to my Amazon wish list. The Amazon app sends out notifications when an item on your list has decreased in price. This week, this 8 ounce bag of tea went from $36 to $14. As you can imagine, I decided to purchase it at that fabulous price. It should be here within the next week and I will share a picture of its contents then. But for now, I will just share the link if this happens to sound tasty to you.
I am playing along with the tea ladies over at Elizabeth and Bleaubeard‘s.
Happy Tea Day,
