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?

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. 😉
A couple more pages from The Documented Life Project…
(Yes, I know, I spelled “too” wrong… but the eye is still awesome! :P)
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? 😉
So what did you create today? 🙂
Here is another BOD entry inspired by the BOD/BOM class i am taking with Effy Wild.
(As usual, the secret words have been blurred for privacy of the not so inocent 😉 )
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…
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?
