Glue It Tuesday - From the Forest

Funny.  After I bought this snowflake punch on sale a few years ago, I decided I didn’t like it.  But I’ve changed my mind again, after the first winter.  It’s come in very handy; I don’t have many punches in the first place.


 I was writing in my art journal about a book I’ve been reading.  Guess I can’t keep from taking notes - otherwise I would forget the points I really wanted to remember.  And I decided “why not” write in my art journal!  Since the book, called “From the Forest: a search for the hidden roots of our fairy tales” is by a woman, Sara Maitland, I might mention it for my Woman’s Book Club.


I found the book in the public library.  Usually I’m already reading books for my book clubs, but we have a little reprieve right now, because of the holidays.  It’s new, published in 2012.  I really love fairy tales (Maitland actually speaks of them as fairy stories.)  And I love the woods, so it was a perfect match for me.  Her chapters take turn, speaking about a forest in England (where she’s from) and telling a fairy story.  It’s quite entertaining, though a little scholarly.    I suggest it for anyone who enjoys the woods and/or fairytales!


 Here’s the full page from my art journal.  Enjoy!  And catch other Glue It Tuesday projects over at Aimee’s blog, Artsyville.

ooo..the snowflake punch. I think I could have done some things with that this holiday season if I had one.

The snowflake punch is neat! It isn't as versatile as something like a heart or star punch, but it still has a lot of potential. I love what you did with the little snowflakes.

Here from GIT-I am now following you so I can continue to see your lovely art since GIT is ending. I used to despise punches but things changed over the years and I now have two shelves full-some of which were left to me. I have this snowflake punch :) Love the background scene with the colorful snow over top.
