The word "Family" means many different things to different people. What do you think of? Your ancestors? Your children? Where you live? This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to create a project the conveys Family. I created a page in my art journal for this challenge. When I think of family, I think of our family dinner table; a time when we come together to discuss and share.
My project started with a page that was removed from an old children s book. I love this illustration and I wanted to incorporate it in my journal. I encountered two major obstacles with this project. The first problem was composition because I was attempting to keep the page whole. I wanted to be able to see the illustration and read some of the text. The second obstacle was trying to create this project with limited supplies. We were in the process of moving when I created this and many of my supplies and tools were packed away, so I had to use what I had on hand. (note: I never did find my glue. How weird is that?)
What comes to your mind when you think of "Family"? Join us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.
