Smudgy Antics DT Project AND Jan Blog Hop

Smudgy Antics DT Inspiration and

Yes, today is a busy blog day!  
I am combining my Smudgy Antics daily inspiration project with this months Smeared and Smudged January Member Blog Hop theme - In The Dead of Winter.
Join in the fun with us at the new Facebook site for monthly challenges, blog hops, and inspiration from the member and Smeared Ink DT.

January Member
I have created a new AJ book cover for an upcoming S&S event/challenge.
All images are Smeared Ink digital pages so this fits my DT rulz. 
In the dead of winter many can go quite mad, insane, or just plain crazy.
This art journal will be a tribute to all those wonderful creatures born and thriving during this special time of year.  
"Winter is coming", and now, "Winter is here".

Snowfall of Deets

I adjusted 3 different Smeared Ink digital papers in my Picasso software.
Printed each separately onto the same Whisper White cards stock overlaying each other.

Smeared Ink Digital Papers Used:
Poe Boy

Chose a font for the saying "Winter is here.", changed to red and printed once more.

Finished page was then adhered onto the front of a old workbook from one of the kids.
Am going to Gesso pages and let dry this week to get ready for challenge, Kickstart Your Art.

Thanks everyone!  Have fun hopping today.
