Yes, I'm Still Here...

It's been over a month now that I've been away from this blog...and I've been getting emails from some of you asking if I'm okay!! I certainly didn't plan to take so much time but it just happened. Over the weeks I was off you might think I accomplished a lot but you'd be wrong. I think it was a bit of blog burnout and art slump all rolled into one.

Mostly I was lazy and completely uninspired. Not much art was done. I had originally planned to spend a lot of time in the studio and to stay away from the computer. I managed to do half of that...the computer part. There was a little time spent in the studio but mostly just messing around in my art journal.


This was the last page in one of my journals so I just threw on some papers, a bit of Washi tape, and some used drywall tape...that's it in the lower left corner and along the top. It looks a lot like sequin waste but it's paper and I love it. It's green because I had used it as a stencil earlier on something else. I liked the color so I just glued it onto this page.

Here's the page full-on...


I painted the face on some book paper 
that had music printed on it...
just a quickie...nothing special.

The only other journal work I did was this spread...

It's just some random strips of paper 
and stamps, stencils, the usual...




I enjoyed working with the green and brown color palette.

So now you know how un-productive I've been over the past month! And I can't even blame the hot weather because we've actually had fairly good weather this summer. Only a few days that were what I'd call really hot. Most of the time it's been beautiful. In fact, I've been spending a lot of time on the back patio reading and drinking Brazilian Lemonade. I hope you check it out because this stuff is addictive!

Tomorrow I have something new to tell you about but for now that's all. Over the next few days I promise to get back into visiting all your blogs but today is errand day here at Chez Art...groceries, post office, library, etc.

It's good to be back...I missed you all.
