I know today is Valentines Day and my post should be full of hearts and stuff but it's not a big deal around here so I'm sticking with my regular schedule. I will mention thought that if my dad were still alive he would have been 92 today.

Art Challenge: When Not To Stop
Journal Prompt: "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough!" (Ooh)
For some reason I didn't get started as quickly on this weeks page as I have with the others. Once I did though I had a lot of fun with it and I dare to say I think this is my best page yet.
For some reason a house stuck in my mind and I knew that I wanted my page to show a house somewhere. Before I even worked on the background I made a house out of a cereal box that I would glue on to the page later. After the house was finished the rest just fell in to place.
When I started working on the background I painted the bottom of the page green and the top blue. At first I wasn't happy with the shade of blue that I used but I thought if I added some yellow in there it might still work. Then I went and searched for a couple of quotes and wrote them out on paper and cut them up to glue on to the page. I thought I was done but then had the idea to grab some markers and paint pens and add a little bit more. That's when the black border went on and the orange dots and white swirls. It was at this point that I looked at the page and thought, Ooh, "Don't stop till you get enough, I think I'm there.
Oh and by the way, Gibbs did help me with this one. Take a look at the door on the house. Do you see something that looks like chew marks? While I was working on something else I must have knocked the door on the floor and Gibbs was right there to snag it up. I looked down and saw him with a piece of paper in his mouth. When I took it away from him I realized it was my door. I was going to just make a new one but he worked so hard on destressing that for me that I didn't have the heart to tell him I couldn't use it.
