She’s A Ball of Sunshine: Mixed Media Art Journal
I am still struggling with the fact that the middle of February is upon us. That and the constant appearance of snow. In a conversation with someone last month I mentioned how much the hubby and I prefer the North as we love colder weather. We both attended college in Florida so we have experienced the extreme heat and humidity that comes with living down South. We both agreed that we would much rather brave the cold and snow than suffer in the oppressive heat. But I have to admit, the last several years have me wishing that the winter season was not quite so long. Having a snowstorm in April takes the joy out of Spring. Ideally, I would love to find a place where fall is the longest season. And if I could make winter last for the months of November -January, I would be ok with that. But sadly, there is no place that I can set weather patterns to my whim. So I am thinking, I may have to travel for some of the winter months as I get older.
What is your favorite season? And do you travel to avoid winter?
Creating the Journal Layout
Here is another layout in my daughter’s art journal. I used my new Morocco Rug Stencil in the background with Distress Paint and Lindy’s Spray. I stamped the background before layering my dyed fabric strips, fiber, thread, washi tape and tissue paper.
I kept this layout pretty simple, especially on the opposite side of the page.

I am joining the very talented ladies for T Day over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard‘s. I am drinking my favorite Tiesta Tea Fruity Pebbles as I care for my plants and dream of warmer weather. We are expecting 4-8 inches of snow this evening into tomorrow. It seems the wintry weather is far from over.
Someone asked about my cup so I thought I would share the link. It is the best cup I have ever owned! My tea stays hot for hours.
Happy Tea Day,
