Ok, perfectionists, you've been warned to look away. Glue gun stencils... not for people with control issues. Cindy Mayfield asked how the bird she spied in my journal in the last post was created. I think I saw glue gun "stencils" first from Traci Bautista. Easy enough to make, but I believe she sells the ones she makes on her website too if you'd rather do that.
Anyway... I was in a circle making mood this morning. Hopefully you have a better glue gun than the sad little one I have. I did these on parchment paper. You could probably do them right on a cookie sheet. Don't be mad if I'm wrong about that and you're scraping glue off of whatever you put it on. :)
Make shapes. Let cool. Peel off. Use.

Ok, ok... it's nowhere near a rocket ship catastrophe, but I did have a problem. I was working on the cover of my latest journal. The journal decided that it would have "A Journey" on the front. I didn't decide that, the journal did. Usually I manage to leave enough space for my lettering, but I guess I'm out of practice. I *could* have just painted over my mistake, but immediately an idea came to mind that just could not be put away. The journal decided that it needed a tab to open. I don't know why. Suddenly it just did.

Thanks to some chalkboard paint, wooden boxes, a lot of wall anchors and screws, my art closet has come together. Hoping some more art happens in there soon!
This girl was home quite a bit last week with the flu. When she started to feel better she dressed up as Princess Leia in honor of the school dress up as a character (it was supposed to be a book character, but oh well) day that she missed.
