Week 23: Small Success
I was on vacation from 6/6 to 6/24 so just getting anything done (while thoroughly enjoying my visits with my very best friends) in my journal was a real accomplishment.
Random ephemera, sharpees, gel pens, and stickers.
Week 24: Silly Zoo Animals.
Totally phoned this one in, but I’m OK with it since I PLAY and I do NOT have to be “perfect”.
Watercolors, sharpees and gel pens, and magazine clippings.
Week 25: Questions & Answers. I really like this spread because I feel like I successfully captured some of the gorgeous colors of the Kansas hills where I was able to visit and camp. As I presently reside in the desert (it’s practically a cartoon, how the desert looks) the colors of the Kansas country were positively saturated by comparison.
This was done with my little travel watercolor set and waterbrushes, and the writing was done with gel pen.
My best friend’s 5 year old daughter quizzed me and I HAD to document some small aspect of the awesomeness that is Jane.
I am on the train toward my vacation, and since it’s dark, I thought I’d update y’all on the postcard love.
These are the latest four (4!) I have received. The white one is embossed with music
and the “Life” card has lace sewn onto it, and
I feel pretty special that the “Spring” card is from iHanna herself! All told, I’ve received 7 out of ten cards already and I have to say that this is getting more fun each time I participate in the swap.
I AM on vacation for the next 2 weeks and, while I’ll be unplugged and/or camping part of the time, I plan on making MUCH art. I’ll be visiting my 2 best friends and one is an art major so I hope to see some great art, be inspired, and play with my art too!
I HAVE to say that I really like how this one turned out!
I really, truly had that moment that the big Art Journal creators talk about…where I worked on an idea, got to the point of HATING it, but kept going until I ended up with something I LOVE!
(seriously…I DREW a book.)
That’s a BIG deal for me…cuz I don’t draw…wait…I can’t say that anymore.
What! I KNOW it’s just a book, but I. DREW. IT.
That’s not a stencil. Or a stamp.
