Melange Team Weekly Challenge

The Melange Team artists are ‘Mixing It Up’ with mixed media in the form of a weekly challenge! Anyone can play, you don’t have to be a team member, (but we’ll take ya if you’re interested:-)

This weeks challenge is ‘TICKET’ and I decided that since I journal almost daily, I would just incorporate the weekly prompt into my journals. That makes it very doable for me.

With my middle sons graduation just weeks away, this page is dedicated to the class of 2009. It is one of those ‘accident’ pages that basically made itself.

It started out a few days ago with a scrap of paper that I’d done a transfer of a bird image for practice. I glued it into my journal for future use. Then to go with the ‘Ticket’ prompt I also glued in an airplane ticket stub from hubby, and added a couple of other ticket images I had. Layers of leftover paint from this mornings project tied the whole thing together. To this I added the perfect quotes. Love it when a page just evolves, capturing a moment of life to perfection.

  3. Hi Pam~Beautifully done. The process is often as interesting as the art itself. So it was great to hear your thoughts and how you created it. Donna

  4. How perfect! Love the quotes – I’m betting you were a little teary-eyed thinking about your boy while doing it! I know I would be.xoxoLaurie

  6. Super sweet Pam, it does feel good when things just seem to come together artistically. It’s like it was meant to be and part of some ‘higher’ plan!
