SOS: Winter Blues

Happy 2019, everyone!

We are fresh from a winter's "nap" at Shopping Our Stash and ready with a new challenge for ya'll: Winter Blues!  So, do winter, do blues, or do both!

I am sharing a little blue art journal spread:
(Pardon the terrible picture... I'll try to get better images when the sun shines)


  • Dylusions journal
  • An old Forest Science journal page stamped with a repeating stamp carved from an eraser a couple weeks ago.  I glued this into my journal over an unfinished spread.
  • Vintage baby blue seam binding from my stash
  • Prussian Blue Colorbursts (pre-liquified in a tiny bottle) dripped into the orange and seam binding
  • Distress Crayons in Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon added here and there and everywhere
  • Blue chunky Stickles from my stash
  • Tim's paper doll (from the Halloween set, I believe)
That's it.  Thus journal spread was made in a funk.  I didn't like any of the blue stuff I'd done,  so I minimized supplies and told myself to just play, basically.  No goal,  no message.  Just use some stash and blue supplies.  I don't love there result,  but playing with the supplies was far from a bad time!  

Hope you'll join us, and hope my card-making mojo joins us soon!  

See you at SOS!
