The first prompt for the journal is Front Door. Well our front door has a beautiful stained glass window of a school of fish in the top, created by the previous owner of our little Cove in Oregon.
It's really hard to get a photo of the door from the outside because of the glare, but this one turned out fairly good. I started with a background of little squares cut from scraps, washed with Antique Linen distress paint to tone them down a little. Then I tore some corrugated cardboard into a rough rectangle; painted it with Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen distress daubers and placed it on the background. My picture came next, placed with tan molding paste. Then I arranged some flowers and seashell diecuts around the upper left corner, added a door knocker and I think I'm done.
I think this will be a fun weekly project and hopefully one I can keep up with. Definitely need to do a better job of posting on my blog this year. Hope you enjoy the journey with me. It's going to be a fun year!
