Here's a journal page I recently made. I actually had used this dragon stencil on another page with some spray ink, and this dragon was made by flipping over the wet stencil and pressing this negative image onto a clean piece of paper. Then I added lots of various colored paints and got this look.
This dragon is one of my favorite pages. I like the movement he seems to have and how all his colors really look natural to me. Such a long way from the white page he started out on.
And here's a doodle journal page. I did this away from my play space and I didn't have a white pen. That's the one thing I wish I had used on this page, but I am otherwise happy with my silly and slightly ugly fishies.
Its all about the play.
This artful play has been helping me cope with my husband's kidney issues. What a couple of weeks it has been. Kidney issues were the last thing on our minds when the hubby wasn't feeling well at the end of January and now we are starting to prepare ourselves for the fact he is going to need a kidney transplant down the road. All this in less than a month. Yeeks!
But the good news is my vacation starts today after work. Not that I have anything wildly exotic planned. I am just thrilled to be off from work. Sleeping in, hopefully painting a wall in my daughter's old bedroom then getting my bookshelves put together (finally) and my books moved into them once the wall is done. Time to get those long IKEA boxes off my living room floor (finally again). I am hoping for naps in the afternoon, time to bake something quite yummy, and maybe a little day trip or something I haven't yet thought up. I might even be decadent and spend a whole day in my pajamas reading in bed and sipping hot tea-getting up only to make another cup of tea. That's the best part about the start of a vacation break-all the potential.
I have just one wish-No Snow!
But somehow I doubt that's going to happen.
I think all this snow and ice in my backyard will be here until July!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and please check out all the great art at
Paint Party Friday. It will be worth your time, I promise.
