New Monthly Challenges

March is coming in like a lion for us so am hoping it goes out like a lamb. In the meantime, while waiting for the winter to go away, I have been working on new monthly art challenges. I also joined a DeConstructed art journal group on Facebook.

The idea behind the deconstructed journals is that you sign up for a group of 5 players. You make an 8 x 8" page (which you fold in half) for each player and mail them to each individual. When you receive your pages from everyone in your group you can bind them in any way you want. This way there is no book to mail which saves on postage and saves on worry that you may not get your book back.

I combined 2 monthly challenges to make my deconstructed journal page. The Mixed Media Monthly challenge for March is "birds of a feather" and the Art Journal Journey challenge is "things with wings".
