Finally finished!

I finally finished my first spread in my "All in a Day's Work" journal. This combines two prompts ... an intro and a job description.I knew what I wanted to say, but I just couldn't decide how to get it on the page ... it wasn't until I thought of writing in white instead of black that I realized I could get it all on the page by writing over the top of the "MOM" and "WIFE". Love the layered look! The background is acrylic paint, the words "MOM" and "WIFE" were made by tracing alphabet puzzle pieces (thanks, kiddos!) and then coloring in with a Sharpie, and the definitions around the edges were cut from a fabulous old dictionary (it's huge!) that I got at a garage sale for a buck. A Sharpier poster paint pen was used for the journaling.

Now to think about prompts #3 and #4 ... #3 is about my daily routine and #4 is about where and with whom I work. I've got a few ideas brewing on those ... let's see if I can get them done before prompt #5 gets posted on Monday!
