Month of Jan - The Book of Days

I created an ocean / geometric shapes theme art journal page for the Month of Jan page for the weekly planner/journal that I'm using for my Book of Days.

This is also my entry for this month's Art Journal Journey theme of Geometric Shapes. I'm a little late to the party, but I was inspired after seeing many of the T Stands For ... ladies also posting to the AJJ challenge. My letter L printed much darker than I intended. Other than that, I'm happy with my end result.

I created this using GIMP 2.10.8.

"T Stands For Teddy Drinking Cocoa" - Photograph

(Click on image to enlarge)

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

Teddy is drinking cocoa after telling everyone that he shoveled the driveway (ahem) on Sunday, January 20, 2019, during the snow / freezing rain / rain storm. Teddy said he needs new boots because his are no longer waterproof, so his toes got wet and froze from the slushy mess he had to trudge through. Teddy also complained his hat wasn't Christmassy enough, and that he wants a red one. I told him beggars can't be choosers. (Note: I never lost power during the storm, so that was fortunate, because others in Connecticut did.)

Additional note: the sky cleared so I was able to see the Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon at 12:12am my local time. (I stayed up past my bedtime, to see it.) I have some photos here, but they didn't come out too good. But it was fantastic to see it in person!

I made a Northern Cardinal bird, pine cone, and red berry wood box, using a cigar box.

I created this using a 3-ply paper Christmas napkin, which I separated to use only the ply with the image on it.

Other than not removing the box hardware, I used the same steps as I did for this wood box.
