Day 12 blog along. Day 1 Aries Moon Vow.

That’s right…I have been keeping up with Effy’s blog along so far, and I love this shit.

In addition, in my Art Class on Saturday, I vowed on the dark of the Aries Moon that I will get paint on my fingertips.

I did this with my fingers.

I was testing out my new paint from yesterday in one of my art journals.

I anticipate that these iridescent colors will REALLY pop on black paper.

Also, I ❤ Iris Apfel.

It’s Me! In the Thing!

I’m so happy to be making something Arty!

Tonight was my journey back to my place, to prepare for my work week.

She’s licking my fingers cuz I had salmon for dinner.

I came home to her, so all is well…

Junk Journals from old books.

So, I got hooked up with Junk Journal Junkies on Facebook, so my feed is full of gorgeous books that folks have made or received.
Also…So. Much. Lace.

Anyway, as I’m so situated as to have access to books (heh), I picked up a few likely victims…

I’m definitely thinking “themes,” so in order L to R, Love, Coffee, Travel, practice, and Politics.

I think that last book will need to be swapped for a thicker book.

The practice book is a badly decayed Mother Goose. I thought to make it the Coffee book, because I love the cover:

But I’m not certain that the old cover will make it…

It’s all fits and starts when it comes to all this. I’m full of ideas, but lack motivation. I know what to do, but lack the energy.

I am bereft without the LOML* and my heart is wounded by loneliness.

…but make art while the laundry runs…

*LOML = Love Of My Life

My littlest art journal

I’ve been carrying this little art journal around for quite a while now (more than 2 years?) It fits in my purse w/o fuss and has kept me from “going postal” in more than one of those meetings that should have just been emails…

There are many pages “in progress” and some blanks just waiting to save lives…

There are pages of stamped art..

And a whole lot of stencil lurve…

Oh! My little one! There may come a day when you are “finished” but until then,  your covers will get beat up at the bottom of my purse.
Which is why I decorate art journal covers LAST, if at all.

PS – Is it weird that once I post pictures of my journal pages, I get ideas about how to “finish” them?
