This is a picture of the stuff I was working on when I last had a studio (and a couple since then). What to work on now?

Today was a meh day. I got a good start on a spread. They I ruined a spread. Then I started to make it better. It is not finished. It is getting better, but I am still not happy with it. I am going to let it sit, and I will come back to it… This one is called “Last Day of School”. On a better note, I got a few backgrounds done, for when I need them later in the month….
Hey guys, have you been using Your Stuff to make something this week? A book maybe? 😉 Have you ever had one of those days/weeks where you do a lot, and get a lot accomplished and yet get nothing to show. Have nothing ‘done’ at the end of the day… don’t get more wrong… more times then not, i am a process over product girl, but that doesn’t leave me much to blog about. heh. But I should have LOTS to show soon (and it will probably be all done at the same time 😉 ) Right now, I have one that just needs some embellishments on the cover. one that has paper drying, that will go on the cover. The holes are punched in the pages, and when the cover is done, it will be bound. and a third that is sitting beside me right now, a pile of supplies ready to be started… but at least it’s gathered and ready to go 🙂 I wanted to give you something ‘pretty’ to look at today, so here is a picture of a couple of my works in progress…
So, have you been using your stuff? What have you made? Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know 🙂

Well, today, I got a bit more art journaling done. And it felt pretty good. I was having a bit of a low and quiet day. I didn’t have much of an attention span, so adding layers, and letting them dry was perfect. It served as just enough of a distraction. I’m not sure if it got me in to, or out of my head, but it was what I needed. And I learned something. I hate crackled. But that was for a different project. I can’t believe I took so much time on it this week, and let it stress me out like it did. Anyhow, here is the one I worked on today, and am going to share. I don’t know if I like it yet, let alone love it. It has a lot going on. But I do like the layers, and I like the texture. I am just going to keep adding to it until it’s more cohesive. And by the time it is done, I will like it… 🙂
So, the big question… did I “Your Stuff… Use It!” today? You bet I did. I keep a bowl on my craft table, that I put any bits in, that I think may be large enough to use for something. Cut out circles. Bits of twine. Pattern paper. Anything that feels ‘reusable’. I even have a window from and envelope in here. So, that is what I used for my first layer. That blue came off off something and smeared around (threads maybe?). Next was a white wash layer, followed by a layer of glued on pieces of book pages. From here, I am thinking another white wash layer maybe, and I am seeing a large flower, or a girl. We shall see…
Did you do any art journaling this week? Did you use stuff you already own? Please leave me a comment down below so I can come see! 🙂
