Little Drawings

I made this journal a few months ago.  The pages were painted and waiting to be filled with drawings.  I've been creating little sketches and drawings for it.  Only 4 more pages to go.

Embracing My Inner Cold...

Life Book 2014 Week 39 led by Alena Hennessy.  We are to create a journal page painting on paper and dry media.

I'm NOT naming names, but there was a man sitting in front of me on the airplane home who generously spread his germs around by sneezing, coughing (without covering his mouth!!) and touching everything - ugh.  Richard and I are both sick with colds.  I feel lousy, but my cure is to keep going, drink lots of liquids (wine IS a liquid), exercise and work in my studio.  Something good always comes out of the bad.

No brushes allowed...

Life Book 2014 Week 38 led by Flora Bowley.  We are to create a painting making marks with anything other than a paintbrush.

Abstracts per se aren't really my thing, but I gave it a whirl using an erasure, thread spool, assorted kitchen utensils, toilet paper core, sea sponge, cardboard, my fingers and a flower.

(All photos taken with i-phone on gorillapod and remote.)

Home is Where the Heart is...

Life Book 2014 Week 37 led by Carissa Paige.  We are to draw our artsy abode.

I just returned home from a fabulous trip to Budapest, Vienna and Prague.  I had a great time, but am happy to be home and in my studio again!

going on a jet plane...

Life Book 2014, Week 36 led by Tamara Laporte.  We are to create a journal page intuitively - not thinking too hard - just go for it.  Ahh, that's my specialty!

We're leaving on our Budapest-Vienna-Prague adventure later today.  I'm already packed so I gave myself the liberty of doing a quick journal page before we head to the airport.

just one more thing...

I thought I was finished making little bags for my travel stuff, but I still needed just a little something to hold pens, glue stick and scissors to go with my journal.

My own texture added to original photo.

simple to do - couple of layers of felt, button and thread...
That's it I'm done - this time I mean it!
