Rounding the Corner(s) to a New Year!


 It's time for a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the optional twist is:  Rounded Corners.  Since we're rounding the corner to a new year, I couldn't resist the play on words here!  This is a great addition to my 2020 art journal...can't wait to start a new 2021 journal; 2020 has gone on long enough!  ;)

This delightful image is from FabrikaFantasy.   I'll be the first to admit, I was not much into Fantasy coloring.  However, I've become somewhat addicted to these whimsical images.  I find them challenging my skills and creativity and that is great fun for me!  It's also fun because there really are no rules in fantasy; I can just do what strikes me at the moment! 

Now, if you check out the material list below, you'll find Disposable Shop Towel.  Yes, well, let me explain that one!  A month or so ago, we ran out of paper towels and I went out to the garage to get some shop towels to clean up my crafting mat.  Well today, as I was putting together my journal page I saw a piece of a shop towel, grabbed it because it was the perfect color and texture, and then figured out it wasn't paper!  ;)  Well, I decided I liked it anyway!  I took it over to my paper cutter, rounded the corners and glued it onto the page!  Why not?!  Anything on my craft table is up for grabs!
