How warmly you welcomed me last week....I haven't had time to personally thank everyone, but I so appreciated your gracious comments.
So, here is what's on my work desk this Wednesday.
Last week, I shared my VERY tidy work space.....one of the things I did, that I thought would keep it tidy, was cover the area with some wide paper. Turns out......that's a handy tool......I experimented on it.......
Speaking of journals, I just completed another page in mine and added some of the envelopes, from the ABC Envie Swap, that I received last month.
With the brief glimpses of sunshine came a "small windows of opportunity" to work out in the yard......so, that has been my priority this past week. Art work was neglected. Some how, I like to think I can out smart the weeds if I get a head start on removing them.....yeah, right! I try.
It rained again, all day, yesterday so, I'm back inside to work on my journal....here are the newly completed pages!
This was a fun page to do......gesso first, wash of aqua, then squeezed some acrylic paint directly onto the page and spread with a credit card, stamped with a piece of bubble-wrap with white gesso and some yellow paint. Then I stamped with the bird stamp I carved....I outlined one bird, but I think I will go in and outline the others, as well. I cut out the tree trunk...used it as a stencil on the left hand page, then glued the cut out part onto the right hand side of the page.....finished off with some rub-ons and a little graphite pencil. Woo Hoo, fun!
I shared the envelopes I had received in a swap, recently on my blog, here is how I am preserving the ones I received. I journal in this book everyday..saving these mini-pieces of art in my journal preserves them as special reminders of the artists who have shared a part of themselves with me.
I hope you are finding time to be creative! Thanks for stopping by, let me know you were here with a comment.
