Cold Hands!

I was prompted to make this page based on a saying that is often used. I have never understood it - so I looked it up - it is to describe someone who doesn't show their emotions well and may appear stern but have a kind disposition. I suppose I must have known that but it had never 'clicked'!
I have been far more literal in my representation of the saying!
I had a  background in my A6 journal (the smallest allowed in the Art Journal Journey Challenge) but it was a little brighter than I liked so I added gesso over the top - scraped on with a faux credit card.
I dipped a coffee stirrer into paint (PA Fresco Sky and Orchid) to draw the heart and the border and stuck on the mittens from a recent purchase at The Works.
I wrote the words with a Derwent Graphik line marker.

This is my latest of 101 Ways to Keep Warm. 
I hope you are keeping warm - the temperature has dropped here quite a lot so we are wrapping up warm for our walk this afternoon!

Thanks for looking, Chris

The weather is definitely colder today, yet the sun was shining brightly in a lovely blue sky. Love your journal cover. Certainly need your woolly mittens in the months to come. Hugs Rita xxxx

I had no idea that is what the saying meant, either, but I certainly love your interpretation of it. It's an absolutely fabulous entry for your challenge at AJJ.

That's funny Chris. I'll have to think about what I thought it meant.
Love the sweet little mittens (are they for the three (two) little kittens who've lost their mittens?).

I love the little mittens. And I especially appreciated the quote. My mother said it all the time, and I didn't realize it had to do with showing emotions. It makes the piece even better. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika
