as you know, it often takes me a week or two to physically make and post my paper adventure pages, but it doesn't mean i am not "working on" them before that. often i'll have the whole concept in my head...down to having written the journaling... (sometimes on the back of an envelope whilst driving to work!) ...and even knowing what products i'll use...from 5 minutes after i have read the prompt. this was one of those times:
(patterned paper: melissa frances, american crafts; journaling card, numbers & velvet letters: making memories; cardstock letter stickers: basic grey; roller stamp: provocraft; other: sharpie & uniball pens; ranger & colorbox inks; teddybear sticker; bits of (clean!) tissue stuck on with gluestick)
this prompt "to do" was from the week before last, whilst i was in the grips of COLDZILLA. i read it whilst i was taking a day off and laying miserably in bed and i thought, "well clearly i am gonna have to pick a different day, since today's agenda is pretty much just 'nap' and 'moan'...and not necessarily in that order!" and then 5 seconds later it hit me: *that* list is WAY BETTER than a regular one! i knew i wanted sickly green tones and specifically those fuzzy green letters, but that was as far as i got until this weekend. i found the loved-to-death teddy in with my stickers; but my favorite bit...the tiny crumpled tissues...were added at the very last minute, and they totally make me laugh!
