On my art journal adventure, I do believe art is an adventure, Zinnia had the prompt of Lyrics. So many subjects could come up. Growing up in the , shall we say middle 40's to 2011 there are a lot of songs you could think of. Well, some of them you could get out of your head as soon as you heard them. Even "Down At Pappa Joes "is a pretty catchy one.
I remember going to the movies and for a whole 25 cents you could get a coke and popcorn and see the movie. Cartoons were shown first or second, not for sure now and always Tom and Jerry was one of them. Then the newsreels, we saw the world news, not that a child of few years would watch that part. There was no TV you know. That was before Bennie and Cecil or even Howdy Doody. I bet that shocks some of you. We actually use to listen to the radio and listen to Little Orphan Annie, The Shawdow and other goodies like that.
One of my favoites was Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and his wonderful horse Trigger. One of the songs he sang was------"Don't Fence Me In" Why I thought of that I don't know. But I did so that is what I chose to art journal on.
Don't Fence Me In---- I had to use rafia around the edges, didn't have any leather laces to play with. This was from a knapkin and the horses were to pretty to trash. I even found a little map of Texas and marked where we were.
I used some of the tape that you use to fix sheet rock with. Hey it is texture.
I hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world. I guess I could sign off with Happy Trails.
