Late but working on it..

Posted on

The week 2 prompt for Journal 52 is (was?) “a Simple Place” and it was supposed to be in by LAST Sunday night, but I wasn’t in the moment I suppose. I have been working on it some, and will have it (and week 3’s “Makes Me Smile”) by THIS Sunday. I’ll post them both here…
I’m trying a double spread for “A Simple Place” and perhaps I’m a bit intimidated by so much space? NAH! I certainly feel like I’ve pretty much outgrown my mini journal and it isn’t even done. I seem to be expanding my art space needs while I shrink…

Week 1 Journal52 – Up Up and Away!

Posted on


This is my first week in Journal52 and I like the idea so far. Clearly, posting/showing my work to others is a new thing for me, but I want to learn more and grow in my art, so I’m doing it anyway…

I found out how velum curls when you try to glue it, and used tape dots for the second piece. Live & learn!

Worked on this during an interminable work meeting. This is the type of thing that keeps me from stabbing people out of boredom!Image.

One Little Word

Posted on Updated on

So, I didn’t think I could come up with only one (1) word to concentrate on for a whole year, but I realized that I had already come up with one when I decided to buy NO (as in NONE) art & craft supplies unless it is something that I have used up and need to replace it. I have so many supplies, my stash has a stash…

The word is USE. I am going to use the things I have purchased, use the information I have collected, and use the inspiration I have been squandering.

Not bad, I say.

Painting decor

Posted on Updated on

So I HAVE been getting paint on my hands, but mostly just from putting color on picture frames and such. There’s a lot of blue and green in my living room and I got tired of all the mismatched wood tones on the picture frames.

I spent this past weekend putting heat blocking curtains in my upstairs windows since this is the desert and it’s April. Everyone has been warning me about the summers here since I arrived in September and my windows DO face West, so…

I WILL post some photos of some art journal pages as soon as I TAKE some photos of some art journal pages…

See…Not only do I not know if anyone would even be interested is seeing what I create, I don’t know if anyone out in the wilds of the interwebs will ever read this at all.

Meh…I’m gonna write anyway.
