I really should have two journals going at once because I frequently have leftovers that just dry on a paper plate, but today I ripped out a page from a sketch pad and put the leftovers to use. I will decorate this page and then cut it up for use in my journal.
I've been perusing some art books on loan from the library. Two in particular have made a hit with me. I may have to purchase them. One is Collage Playground by Kimberly Santiago and the other is Answers to 50 of the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Watercolor Glazing Techniques by Don Rankin. I've started a glazing practice on the back of the sunflusans. There is a bit of mess around the edges of the paper, but I am just playing/learning so don't mind. So far I just have a layer of fairly watery Azo Yellow.
And I realized I failed to share with some goodies I got in the mail from the lovely April Cole. She was purging some of her mixed media collage goodies and was nice enough to send me some. I can't believe all the lovely stuff she was able to fit into a business envelope.
My art space is an absolutely pig sty and I must get some picking up/organizing/sweeping done today or I swear I will totally lose it.
What are you doing today? Does it include some time for yourself? Are you getting a chance to be creative? Do share.....
