An Artsy Collaboration. . .

My friend Kim and I LOVE to have a crafty good time together.  She and I can spend an endless amount of time talking "artsy/craftsy" to the point of completely boring anyone nearby.  Here's an excerpt from a conversation from about four years ago.
KIM - Washi Tape is so "dreamy" - I just love it and can't wait to get my hands on some.
ME - What in the world are you talking about?  How exciting can tape be?  I think you may be a bit loony.
We all know who the loony one was!  Tape is some of the hottest crafting materials around!  Anyway - it came to us that collaborating on an art journal together would be great fun!  Kim got the above journal through Donna Downey.  Don't you just love her Inspiration Wednesday videos?  
We hemmed and hawed for some time trying to decide who would be the brave one and start the journal but then I found this great quote and I jumped in and took the plunge.  The leaf print was a good choice to start our journal since we did those together.
Partnership is another word for collaboration and it wasn't until I was sticking the letters down that I realized that ART is right in the middle.  How cool is that?! - I emphasized that word by peeling off the top layer of sticker.  I don't know how long it will take us to fill this journal but I do know that we will have fun doing it!!

This looks like a fun project and you're off to a great start.

I was the same way about washi tape when I first heard about it. Now I love it.

Art is always more fun when it's shared! I'm so excited about our journal project, and I love the quote you chose and the leaf print page! This is going to be so much fun!
