Rainy Days and Mondays

     The sun peeked through today and we were able to cautiously walk around the back yard, avoiding puddles.  I promised Lakota that if it continued we probably would be able to throw "something" tomorrow.  I woke up from nap to a deluge!  It was pouring! again! I had so hoped for some sunshiny days. 
     It is a good thing Mondays bring me some extra fun to keep down the cabin fever.  I get to work on my inchie and see what Diva is cooking up for us to do.  Both were extreme fun today.

Diva Challenge #126

     Diva asked us to use a stencil in our zentangle inspired art today.  When I saw the pictures of her gorgeous stencils, I was envious - not to mention her beautiful tiles.  You should head over to the Diva Challenge (sidebar) and see all the wonderful art work.  I love scrapbooking ad card making so I had some selections of stencils.  I used a wavy border stencil ruler for one and then pulled out a Cricut die-cut for the other.

Time for Tea

Every Inchie Monday

     The word to challenge us this Monday was "story".  I had an idea almost from  the second I read the word.  Really, I have been planning it for weeks.  My challenge was not what to do, but how to do it.  I took a one inch strip of paper and folded it accordian style.  I then glued together a little book.  Pulling out my scrapbook papers, I found old timed pictures of people and used some of the paper I had out for the Diva challenge (the tea paper).  I assembled a little book.  Now what to call it?  I decided on the title of a Rod Stewart song, "Every Picture Tells A Story".  The first photo shows my little book, but is very blurry.  Sorry.  The rest are the scanned cover and inside pages.
My little "story" book
There you have it!  My little inchie book!  I inked the outside edges to make it look older.  I am definitely satisfied with this idea. 

      Glad you stopped by and hope you will leave me some sunshine!  Have a wonderful week!

  3. This is brilliant. I love the fact that you've got real pages in your book with lots of pictures. It must have taken a lot of work.

  13. Since I collect fruit and vegetable inspired tea pots and pitchers, I think the Time for tea tile gets my vote. I never thought of using the stencil that was and leaving it blank. Great idea!
