WEEKEND STUDIO: HERE WE GO A-JOURNALING...


I finally had time to putter in the bedroodio this weekend, but was torn between doing a project from my Artsy Ornaments class, and working in my little Christmas journal. Then I thought, "Why not compromise?"


So did both at once! All those security envelopes my sister-in-law saved up for me are still coming in mighty handy -- this time as a snowy background. The little girl and bird were cut out of cardboard and glued on, to give the page more dimension.

Did I mention how much I love those chalky Christmas gift bags I found the other day?


Finally got to use some of my iridescent acrylic ink, too!
 

This was a background technique I wanted to play with. Not sure where it will go from here.


Last but not least, a work-in-progress that I was kind of excited about...


until the black gesso I used for the chalky pages seeped over the top and made a great big ol' mess!


Some days you're the windshield. Some days you're the bug, right?

Fun times in play-land. I did some stenciling on a bureau last night. Needed to get my paint on. Looking good. Love your Mindy inspired girl. xox
