Aah! But not straight away, the old lady carried on crafting and she tried and tried to ignore the mutterings of the big old giant she lived with, and for a while she did, but then came the awful day when she couldn't find what she was looking for…it WAS in her craft room SOMEWHERE, all she had to do was move a few things, but where to? She had already secreted a few things to where she sat to watch TV and she so enjoyed having a clear dining table(which she hadn't had in her old house)There was only one thing for it - she would have to throw something away! Now there are lots of goodies in the old lady's craft room, journals, stamps, paints, inks, buttons, beads and all sorts of other things in boxes, things she had made, things friends had made for her…..they just had to stay!
She began to look around her, and what did she see….can you believe it - all sorts of boxes and bags full of leftover bits of paper and fabric, things she had bought and regretted buying, projects started and never finished - basically load of old tat!!
She started to look in some of the boxes, it wasn't ALL tat! She looked at her journals, she had always had the idea that one day she would decorate the covers.So…that's what she did, in fact she was so keen to get started that when the big old giant that she lived with came looking for her he was surprised to find that she hadn't even put any music on - she nearly always crafted to music - and being the kind giant that he was he put some on for her!
Okay! You've probably guessed by now that I have written about myself!
Art Journal Journey's theme Tell me a Story (chosen by Erika)was my inspiration!
Here is what I have been up to this morning!
I am pleased to say that the bin has been emptied twice and I started on a third box as well as separating some colours to cover more journals.
As you can see I found just the quote to stick onto one of the covers. The newspaper supplement has these little quotes in each week and I had quite a few stashed away!
Thanks for looking, Chris
