I just realized what the date is. If my Dad was still alive, he and Mom would be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary today. I'll have to call Mom later as I know she will be caught up in memories.
I will have Miss P and Miss M this afternoon until 9:30 or 10:00 (or maybe overnight) while their Mom is at work. We are sure to find some time to do some art and then at 5:00 PM, the local branch of our library is having a program called Water Rockets, which I am sure they will enjoy.
Yesterday I spent a bit of time in my art journal using gesso, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, stamps, scrapbooking paper, wallpaper, and an image transfer to build a new spread.
I also added to the horizon line (it is a bit wonky - I know it should be straight) of my little watercolor and put a bit of blue into the water of the foreground. I'm thinking I should try adding a small boat of some kind on the right to balance the trees on the left. Or maybe some birds? What do you think? Am I on the right track?
I have done a bit of clean up in my art space, but it is still quite messy. I did, however, do a major clean up job in the kitchen and it looks super. I will keep trying to make my art space neater so I can find things more easily and I am finding images to try to make into stamps. I purchased the Speedball stamp cutting tools and some small and medium stamp blanks. I also picked up a couple of small erasers to see if I can make them work. They are considerably less expensive than the Speedball product.
What do you have planned for the day? Are you making time for yourself and your muse to play a bit? I look forward to seeing what you are doing? Please share.....
