Today I am sharing an art journal page I made for a couple of challenges. Actually it started off with the intention of fitting in with the colour scheme of one challenge and no real direction at all beyond that, and as I worked on it, it became apparent that it would also fit with one or two other challenges. It’s funny how these things take on a mind of their own.
OK so here’s my page. As it evolved I kept thinking that this sad-looking woman was in need of some chocolate – maybe a lot of chocolate lol. Chocolonely for those who don’t know, is a Dutch chocolate company (Tony’s Chocolonely) and it used to be the case that they were only available in Holland but now you can get them in a few places here as they started exporting last year. NOMO is a vegan chocolate brand and that stands for No More Missing Out. This packaging came from an Easter egg that a friend sent to me for my birthday this year. It was yum! Sometimes vegan chocolate has a weird aftertaste but this didn’t and it was Salted Caramel flavour and I was in chocolate heaven. Tony’s btw is not a vegan brand but they have a LOT of flavours and some of them are vegan.
So yeah, this girl is chocolonely because she’s missing her chocolate 🙂 and I’m calling her Chocolonely Chick as it reminds me of the Lonely Chick song, though she uses a different word NSF radio lol.

And here’s the finished spread. Despite how much I dislike orange, I actually like how it turned out in the end, the colours go well together, just not in my wardrobe lol. Let me know in the comments what you think. As always, thanks for reading!
OK here are the challenges I am entering:-
First up, Kraft+ Challenge – August Challenge – use teal, orange and copper
As the page progressed I realised that this page would also fit in two other challenges that required tags. I made my own tags (four of them) from paper and an Easter egg box.
A Vintage Journey – Tag You’re It
Art Journal Journey – Pockets and Tags
I do have another page planned for both these challenges which hopefully I will finish tomorrow but when I realised this one would also fit, I decided to enter it as well.
