Mini Art Journal Journey - Week Five

2.05.2007

Ethan got to stay home from school today as it was called off due to the extreme cold temperatures! Yay! That meant that I got a little uninterrupted creative time, and I used it to do my weekly mini journal challenge. This week's idea was to use some ephemera from your week. I chose to use a receipt showing the purchase of three books that we got at a local book store here in town. Zoey's book was of course the first one listed, Green Eggs and Ham by the one and only Dr. Seuss. Once home after reading it to her, (five times!), she said, "I want some eggs Mama"...this coming from a little girl who has never taken a single bite of an egg! I think we have some green food coloring in the cupboard...

I am seeing all these card challenge's everywhere. Is there a link or somewhere I can go to see the challenge and figure out how to start my own? How do glue the paper on the card??? Ideas??
I would love to hear ideas!!!

Brandi Sue said...

Thank you for posting on my blog!
I checked her blog and saw her weekly ideas. The part I don't understand and I was hoping someone could help me with how you get your paper on the card. Do you have to sand the card, do you use adhesive, do you use Mod Podge?
What do you use???
Thanks for all your help, and sorry for so many questions!
