Eternally Two

Here's another journal page for  both Art Journal Journey and Moo Mania. February's theme at AJJ is "If Music is the Food of Love, then play on" hosted by Hazel, and the latest theme at Moo Mania is hearts.

This page uses a piece of tiger stripe paper which I Gelli printed on. Then I stamped the dancers and the Ballet of Monte Carlo phrase. I also stamped the eternally word and added a plastic dimensional two sticker, and I put a little heart sticker inside the o in the two word. Then I added some music pieces to the 2 corners and some silver paint along the edges. Finally I drew the big heart with a Stabilo pencil, and then with a wet paint brush I smeared that heart a bit.

I am hoping today will be a  mellow and uneventful  day. I need to catch up on some school work, don't want any meetings, and would love a nice relaxing arty evening. The week has started off with too much deep cold, snow and ice and too many big meetings at work. I just need some time to do what I need to do, like catch up on some grading, play in my studio and get a few little piles organized in my classroom and at home. Sometimes you would think that is too much to ask for.
HA-HA! Must mean I am ready for that vacation next week.
Have a great day everyone. I hope yours is mellow and uneventful, unless of course you want wild and eventful, or fun  or crazy or something other than mellow and uneventful....
Thanks for visiting.

Had the pre-Op exams today, on Sunday I go into hospital, but good news - there's WLAN for the patients there, so I can stay connected!

First let me say how gorgeous I think your header/banner is. So creative and stunning to the eye. The minute I opened your page I was mesmerized by it. Your take on the prompt for Art Journal is one I really like. IF I could do it, it would have been I would have created. It’s perfect. I like everything about it. I am so happy I found your blog. It has been a real treat for my old eyes. Have a nice rest of the week. genie

This is incredible. What a great way to cover over a background paper. You make gelli printing an artform. The music background was great, too. Loved this. Hope your day was far better than mine.
