Can't believe another week is winding down. Guess my busy week has just made it fly right by. Ha-ha! I've been hanging out here in New Hampshire enjoying one of these with some friends as we dodged thunderstorms. Boy have we had a lot of thunderstorms lately.
I finally finished reading Outlander and one of those Stephanie Plum novels. Man, they make me laugh. I enjoyed Outlander too and will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
Then I made a good stab at this book. Another fun light reading, I am hoping there will be a little time today to finish it up.
I also finished cleaning out my bookshelves in the spare room which I use as my happy place art studio. Here's the part of the shelves under the eaves of the house but there's a whole wall set of shelves just to the left of this-you might be able to just make them out on the far left of the photo.
I cleaned out so many books, if you can believe it! And I moved all my inks and tapes and jars of texture products over there too. Now I should be able to find things rather than having sprays in one spot and paints in another and tape in another.
Yahoo-that was a BIG job and I am SOOOO happy to have it done. It was the one major project on my summer to do list.
It was such a nice week. Just enough business and enough play time. I also did some sketching and some gardening and went to see that movie Lucy- which I didn't think was very good.
I did a bunch of journaling.
So much Fun!
This page started with me making a bunch of paint streaks. I was actually going through a bin of craft paints trying to see which ones were hard as rocks and which ones were still usable. I did that this week too. But why waste paper? So I sprayed over it and used the page as a journal page. I cut up an inked and embossed image I had and then added all those purple embossed hearts to the page. I'm thrilled with the border.It may not be anything wildly unusual but I really like how it came out.
And silly me had to make a page with a sasquatch. A little bit of my recent summer trip to put into my journal. Love how the moon and the night sky came out. If proportions are right then this bigfoot is more like 30 feet tall rather than 8 feet tall. But its ok since anything goes in your journal. Still puts a big smile on my face.
That's all for me today. Hope you stop back again soon and let me know what you think of my journal pages.
