Hello and welcome snarky peeps!
Our first challenge of the year is H for Headache.
So, I had some fun with my paints and stencils and made an art journal page:

I found a meme with this sentiment and built my page around it.
(Note to self: find a less wordy meme in future!) Why? Because I
used an alphabet stamp set to stamp. every. letter. to. form. my. words. UGH!
Grab your beverage of choice. Here come some process pics:

One last look:

I hope that you get a chance to play along in our Headache challenge at the
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! We'd love to see your take on it. For more
inspiration, do check out what my Sisters, and our first Queen of the new year,
Julie, have created for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

  1. Fabulously arty and fabulously snarky too! Great work, sistah, Jo x

  2. Yes very artsy and super sentiment to boot. fab. card.

  3. Wow! That's a LOT of stamping!!! Love seeing your process in layers.

  4. I am SO impressed that you alphabet stamped your entire sentiment! Obviously I did that too recently (you know, the last year or two) so went for the computer myself. Gorgeous page!!!!!

  5. Beautiful! There is no way on earth I would stamp so many individual letters, anything longer than half a dozen letters gets computer generated or left off.

  6. Fabulous journal page,brilliant image and sentiment-wow all those individual stamped letters.Thank you for joining us at 613 Avenue Create
