Dylusions Challenge for January 2018

An art journal page created for a monthly challenge with The Dylusions Facebook Challenge Group :) January 2018 theme was - Red, Orange, Squares.

Must Love Crazy Dogs

Must Love Dogs ... not only one of my favourite movies but a fun choice to use for this journal page (theme was "movie quote"), especially when put together with Tim's Crazy Dogs. I took it from when Jake was having a chat with the father of his would-be girlfriend (Kate) and says "She was a unique constellation. She was my Halley's Comet."

Under the Sea Creatures ATCs

ATCs (artist trading cards) are such fun things to make. This theme was "Creatures of the Sea". Of course I had to use the Dylusions "Under the Sea" stamp set ... they're too adorable to not use at every opportunity!
