It's Gonna Get Crazy....

Things might get a little crazy around here for the next week or so. Not only am I getting a new computer (probably by Friday)- we're switching ISPs, and I have Flora's class starting on Monday plus a few other class/workshop things going on. I might be offline with the ISP thing for a day or so.

To keep you up-to-date on some of what I've been doing, here's another of my little blank books that I altered.


You may already know that I hate to cook so when I saw this image online I knew it was perfect for the little book where I jot down recipes. I covered up the author's name with my own name and I think it looks just right.

This morning I watched some videos about a technique I wanted to try. I learned about the videos here. So far I've done the sketch, painted over it with acrylics and added the layer of tissue paper...


This is a sketch from a picture I saw in a magazine. I liked the different angle of her face and wanted to try it. I'll let you see the next step when I finish it.

And lastly I haven't been working too much in my bigger art journal so I decided to do a spread. I had part of the background already done and just added the images, some stamping, tape, doodling, etc...


and here are the individual pages...



When I saw the image of the older ladies looking at the naked man I knew I wanted to use it sometime. Today was the day! I added the heart on his bum...afterwards I thought a big kiss image would have been better but I had the little heart sticker.

The red line going across the pages came to me after we watched Touch with Keifer Sutherland (loved it) the other night. It told about an old Chinese legend of a red string tied around your ankle and it connects to all the other people that you're connected with.

Okay, that's all I have for now. See you in a few days. Wish me luck with all this computer stuff!
