Under the wire, as usual

Here's my journal spread for my first Crusade. Michelle Ward hosts this challenge every month and after procrastinating a long time, I got one done. I'm not thrilled with it, but it's part of my effort to make more art, more quickly, without ruminating over every piece like it's the dang Mona Lisa or something. That's part of my silly perfectionism issue.
I've loved Michelle's rubber stamps for years, and her website is a definite 'must visit'. Right now, she has some easy snowflake templates for everyone (which weren't posted when I cut mine....waaahh).

Hi there, nice to meet you through the Crusades. I love the right hand snowflake, it reminds me of iced up 'space junk' for some reason. Some of the blues you've got are gorgeous.

Hi Debra,
Glad you joined the Crusades! I love the colors here and - the texture is great.

Your page is a perfect base for future journalling and embellishing! Subtle yet oh so interesting!! I can relate to your perfectionism bug, we must kill it with bug spray or spray paint. teehee. I love the gal in your blog header and will be coming back to visit!! xoSusan
