Unfinished Canvas

In the process of cleaning/rearranging/moving my office recently, I came across an unfinished canvas.  It is pink, and cute, and I have no idea where I was going with it.  More than that, I have no idea where to take it now.  Has that ever happened to you? What did you do?  Do you have any thoughts for this one?

My Two Blonde Girls

This year I have been taking a class called When Frogs Sing.  I love it!  We learn something new every 3 weeks.  Lately, I have been posting more of what I have done in the class.  This last round we have been learning how to draw, shade and color folk and semi realistic faces.  Here are a couple I have done.  I call them ‘my 2 blonde girls’ (although, they are really both the same girl. 😉

New Years Spread

This is one I dragged out of the picture archives to share with you… It was a spread I made at about New Years…. It was a modge podge of techniques I was playing with… but I kind of like the way it turned out… 🙂

Fall Spread

Okay.  I am much happier with today’s spread.  The them is Fall, and I chose to makes it about some things I love, instead of doing a scene.  This one has a doodle feel to it, and the colors make me happy.  And in true form, I did this one in my journal upside-down.  But it wouldn’t be one of my journals if at least one of my spreads wasn’t upside-down, right? 😉

2 out of 3 ain’t bad!

Well, my goal this week was to get 3 books bound, but really, it was closer to 2 and a half.  But I think I can be ok with that… Still a pretty good week for me, and I always enjoy this process 🙂

Here is a picture of the second one I made using my Own Stuff

2013-09-20 18.09.30A

 

I love this one!  I started with a bunch of tissue boxes I had.  So I started cutting them up (for the pages).  Then I realized a had a lot of cardboard of comparable sizes, so those when in the pile too.  I kept cutting, and soon had a pile about and inch and a half tall.  Perfect!  I used an old pizza box lid and cut it in half for the covers.  Then I covered those with mono-printed deli-paper.  I stitched it together with left over sock yarn (yes, I have A LOT of this (maybe 200 balls? I have knit many socks before I discovered paint…).  I was introduced to THIS video months ago, and I love it because it is single sheets (no fold) and lays as flat as a coptic stitch binding.  Added a little more paint, stamped some flowers.  A little more paint, a few embellishments from the embellishment drawer (including a Tim Holtz), she is done and ready to throw some paint at! 🙂

What did you create this week?

PS- next week is alter-something week.  but I have never done it before. any ideas what I should alter? any tips?
