You can call me Bird...
Well, it's not my birth name, but it's been the given nickname since I can remember and I rather like it. Apparently I flapped my arms, like a bird would its wings, whenever I saw food and mimicked the excitement of a baby bird at feeding time.
I decided to join the year long class called Wanderlust 2016 and the first journal entry prompt was to choose one word that describes me today.
So bird it is..
I had a little fun with textures and the glue gun while creating these pages. I stamped both the leaves here to the right and the leaves below with Ranger Dye Ink. Now the leaves below, I colored them first with copics and gel pens. The leaves to the right I decided to hit with glue first and then color the cooled glue. You can see how the glue dried differently on those mediums.
Both of my kid's names begin with B's, so I've dubbed myself the "B keeper." And that explains why they're buzzing around.
I find the longest day to be one that I don't laugh, so I try to always make time for silliness and a good belly chuckle. Once I stamped the little ink nibs in various places, I gave myself random cues to write something. Here's silly.... And God knows I'm trying to win t;hat 1 billion, but in reality, I don't think I really want anything to do with the insanity that would follow. So....back to journaling and laughing.
And here's something sweet....
And here's a little more texture with paste and glitter because, anything with glitter is good!
Well, that's a little peek into my Wanderlust journey and I'm so glad to have spent this time sharing it with you. There's still time to join in the year long crafting journey. It promises to be a creative adventure.
Until next time...
Big hugs and happy crafting,
