When faced with an art journaling kit, I am often at a loss as to what to make with it. It's not that I don't like, or can't do, art journaling, I just have too many pictures, and I want just about all my layouts to have pictures in them. So, I try to combine pictures and art journaling.
This is just a silly page, but it makes me smile. The picture is actually really nice and deserves a real layout. I already made it into a magnet and sent it to mom just for fun, and also because Shutterfly was offering a free magnet, and we don't have anything magnetic in our kitchen, and I also put it on the back of Ms ACs birthday card.
I didn't spend a lot of time on extractions, just blurred and blended a bit, and dressed us up in Sunday Best. It was indeed a Sunday that we stood on the beautiful Carmel City Beach, celebrating my 56th birthday. I did spend a lot of time warping the hats to fit our heads :-)
And the words...A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content...these are very true!
