Artful Journeys - Week 26: Celebrate!

Hey, y'all!!!  It's Melody here, bringing you this week's prompt - Patriotic/4th of July/Red-White-Blue.

239 years ago, on July 4, 1776, the Thirteen United States declared their independence from England, creating a new nation.  A nation which has been a melting pot for peoples from ALL OVER the world.  So, as July 4th grows near, we decided to honor ours, and all other countries - if you don't have a day of independence, then go patriotic with your spread, using your country's colors for your spread.

This week, tho she forgot what day of the week this was, Lynn threw together a cute little page for our prompt:

She said: "I started off painting half the page Robin Blue and the other half an off red, then added some Barn Red as well.  I stenciled the anchor and month in white, then added some larger circles, but I didn't like them, so I went back thru with smaller circles, which I liked a lot better, and really liked some of the blue peeking out.  I completely lost track of which day of the week it was, so this was just a super quick page, but it was fun, and I hope you like it.  Thanks for looking!"




Next up is my (MELODY) spread - I have had a really tough time creating lately, but I did have some great fun creating this spread.  You can see it HERE:



Next up is TAMIE'S spread, and I absolutely LOVE what she pulled off in her journal this week! Go read all about her process HERE:




BETTY is totally patriotic this week with her spread.  Check it out HERE



SHANA is traveling over the course of the next couple of weeks but will return with a vengeance after her travels.

We hope that you all find some inspiration in the work we have prepared and that you get in the patriotic spirit of our theme this week. Be sure and show us your creations over at Artful Journeys.

Have a wonderful week, and Happy Independence Day!
