Art Journal page: Rainbow Connection

One of my goals for the year is to use more ephemera than I keep. I have a tendency to store it away in case I ever want to use it and then never use it. I have a box full of pictures cut from magazines and catalogs from five or ten years ago that are just not my style anymore. I can't see myself using them, but I don't want to just throw them out. So I'm trying not to add to the stash of stuff I'll never use.

This page was inspired by the blue, cloud-shaped bit at the bottom of the page. It's a tag off of a pair of Old Navy jeans that says "The Dreamer" (Well, said. I added an S.) When I saw the tag, I decided to use it right away. The words got me thinking and the song, "Rainbow Connection" popped into my head. If you don't know the song, click here. Fair warning: it's sung by Kermit the Frog.

With that song stuck in my head, this was the only page I could do. It's not my favorite page ever, but I kinda like it.
