More Than Words Design Team work using the Word, "Enjoy."

Hello friends,

Before putting away all my supplies from my last design team project at More Than Words this month, I used the leftovers from the project to create this little tag. The spoon is a plastic cocktail spoon slathered with gesso and Finnabair's yummy yellow metallic acrylic paint.  I applied the same technique on the tag background that I used on my art journal Delight project... that technique really stands out on this little tag.   The pretty little micro beads on the spoon actually look like those delectable candied sprinkles.

Check out my fellow design team colleagues' projects and the challenge rules and prizes here.
You have until the end of September to post your art.

Come on over and join us at More Than Words Mini Challenge using the word, "Enjoy" on your mini project.

More Than Words - September Challenge - The word, "Delight" and a "Recipe."

I took the More Than Words creative challenge literally and designed an art journal entry with Grandma’s Southern Potato Salad recipe.  As a kid, I’d watch Grandma, mom, and my aunts prepare the salad in the kitchen because I enjoyed eating it so much.  Adding a written recipe in my art journal will remind me of the fun and delight at past family reunions with people that are no longer here to share the salad with us.

I found the decorative cutlery on Pinterest, printed them on paper and set them with Mod Podge on my journal page. A quick and easy alternative to adding an embellishment to your art journal pages.
