Happy new week everyone.
A good weekend does a lot for a sagging psyche, and I am feeling recharged. Of course this week at school is going to be insane as it is Spirit Week, which is the lead up to home coming next weekend. Lots of craziness ahead, but at least no evening events and no thoughts of surgery. :)
I'm also thinking I might be naughty and maybe take a day off just to stay home and make art all day. That thought makes me happy.
The goal of this past weekend was to have some fun but also get something accomplished. So I did a few chores and squeezed in a little gardening. :) Amazing how getting something done can pump you up. Or at least me.
So I squeezed in a bit of art time this weekend. I didn't really finish much, but I managed to make a bunch of backgrounds and I did complete this page.
I tried something different by making a collaged background of assorted paper scraps and some tissue paper scraps.
Then I sprayed it with some ink. Once dried I added some leaf stickers. The larger ones I added some glitter glue (Stickles). I also stamped the words and the flying geese. The pumpkins are cut from a box of Trader Joe's pumpkin cookies. I added the glitter glue to them also. And the fox is a little die cut that i added and colored..
I am linking up to Art Journal Journey. This month Valerie is our hostess and her wonderful theme is Indian Summer-Golden October.
The golden October colors were rather pretty at my house this weekend.
I love this maple tree in the back edge of my yard.
Sunshine in the woods behind the tree, And also leaves that fell out of the tree that covered the ground.
Hope everyone else had nice weekend too. I'm glad you stopped by my blog. I always appreciate it.
