Well hello there! Long time no see. Unexpectedly to boot.
I have been down for the count and completely out of commission. Hate it when that happens! (Who doesn't, right?)
I may have escaped the Polarvortexwinter of 2014, but I did not escape the Gnarlyvirus of 2014.
You win some, you lose some.
Yesterday was the first day in a week that I got dressed. I had to go to a parent conference at my son's school, so my daughter drove me there. After that, we went to the beach, but had to leave after 15 minutes or so, this thing is lingering and rather relentless. It felt great to be out among the living, no matter how brief.
Today, I not only got dressed, but felt well enough to go out and take notice of all the living things. Hooray. As I mentioned on instagram the other day, nothing like a good knock down to make one appreciate anew.
I hope you've had a much better week! I'm glad to be feeling well enough to blog again!
I have no idea what the weekend holds, hopefully more enjoyment of the great outdoors (well, the backyard anyway).
Have a good one!!!
I thought it might be fun to see some of the art that I started in class, as demos usually, for lettering, journal pages, and collage fodder all.
I had my own Nova Paints and Copic marker charts with me so students could see colors they might want to purchase in the future if they liked the medium when trying my samples. (There is a giveaway for Copic markers going on over here, btw).
I bet most people would throw away these scraps that were used for various reasons. I never can. I see such potential. And hey, if the potential doesn't work out, I can always throw them away then!
Lots of papers from Gelli plate mono printing and stenciling. I've since started doodling or collaging on them and they are evolving:
I'll use them to collage on some of my pages.
There is never enough time, ever, in class to show all I hope to, but I try to show as many of the different ways I art journal as possible. . Here are some pages that were white when the day started:
I do find it challenging to have pages come together when used for demo-ing lots of different techniques. It's a bit more forced and often times busier than it would be if I weren't trying to show lots of methods I use. I usually like to keep playing on them once the class is over and I'm home. Here's an example of a spread at the end of class:
At the end of class above, today, below. Not huge changes, but moving toward a more complete page with each addition.
I've even started collaging on older, previously started pages with the collage fodder from class:
Just looking at these photos has me itching to get back to playing in my art journal! Going to do just that tonight after first getting some more work done and then going to my son's baseball game. (I guess there is never ever enough time at home either!) Hope those of you that were in class have had a little time to art journal this week! And of course, those that couldn't join us as well! (Oh, and for those that have asked: I'm sorry, I don't have any extra kits left, we were a sold out class.)
I had such a good weekend spent meeting, making, talking about making, etc. etc. while teaching at Studio Crescendoh. I'm super thankful that Jenny took some pictures, because once class starts, I pretty much completely forget to take any. I even said at some point, "I forgot to take photos yesterday, must not forget to today", and then promptly did just that (forgot to that is).
Both days were great fun and I'm very thankful to all that spent some or all of their weekend with us!
Saturday was all about lettering, including pens, paints, brushes, nibs and on and on. Jenny shared some of what she'd recently learned in her weekly Japanese calligraphy class with us too, which was a fun extra.
And Sunday was all about art journaling. Before breaking for lunch we shared all the backgrounds and collage fodder we'd been making all morning. It was fun to see the different colors, techniques, styles etc. emerging through the layers of play each artist had been doing. Again, thank you Jenny for the photos!
And as always happens, time went too quickly. It felt like we were just getting rolling, but really, hours and hours of art had gone by. People had flights to catch, Sunday night activities, and regular life to return to. But man, it was fun while it lasted! I'll be teaching at Studio Crescendoh again in 2015 for sure, but we might have to throw a single day in there sometime this summer too. So fun to spend time art journaling with others who love it too. Big thanks to those who made it happen this past weekend! xo
Finishing up all the kits and class prep for this weekend's classes. Looking forward to getting to enjoy all the prep tomorrow and Sunday. Two full days of creating is the really fun part!
A student requested I have some vintage wallpaper packs available for purchase (which I've still got to finish up), in the meantime, I pulled out some of my treasured vintage ledger and music papers for an additional option. Papers from the 1800's sure are pretty, I had forgotten how much.
And for the first time ever, I put together some original art scrap collage packs:
Just bits and pieces from various art I've made. I thought Sunday's art journaling students might like to use some PG collage fodder. I'm hoping to have one or two handmade journals too, a few small original art pieces, and a few other goodies...
Never enough time for all the ideas...back to racing the clock I go...
Looking forward to seeing old friends and new in class. Hope those of you that aren't able to join us have a great weekend, and get to spend some time making art too!
Thought I'd check on the succulent cuttings I've either received from friends over the last few months, or took from my own plants, to see how they are surviving. I'm pleased to report that so far they seem to be doing well!
My current phase of gardening does not include the studying of plants and their names, or even the best way to propogate. I used to do that. I used to know horticultural and common names for plants, take cuttings, use hormone powder and take great care. Right now, in this phase of my life, it's more, plop it in this way or that and see what takes.
If I received them with roots, they get planted immediately. I mean, roots means they're already established plants, right?
Those that have a strong stem get shoved into a succulent soil right away as well.
Some cuttings I let harden off first, before trying to replant.
Some are simply left to lie on the soil and see what happens... I know you can plant these String of Pearl cuttings with their little fragile stems too.
I've been having the best luck lately by putting the new cuttings into our potted citrus plants. The soil is fast draining, and although succulents are drought tolerant, I've found that they do fine when watered regularly. (I'm not the most regular plant water-er of late either, so there's that...)
When I ran out of room in the potted citrus, I ended up putting quite the variety of starters in an empty planter box. I'm excited to see what takes and gets to be transplanted later. I want to fill in our back planter area with succulents this summer becuase I've not had much luck with anything else I've tried. I want them to thrive and cover the planter area and look like this:
Looks like it's time to take a cutting from that top rosette, doesn't it?
They seem to be on their way...
Wow, it's March already. I seem to permanently live in "time is flying" mode. I don't particularly like that fact, but that's thinking and rambling for another day. One thing I am happy I spend the fleeting moments on is my everyday family life documenting (aka Project Life). (I'm using this album and these pocket pages mainly this year).I am currently caught up with 2014 and that feels really good to me. Here are some of my favorites from the February spreads. If you'd like to see my weekly spreads in full, you can see my gallery here.
This photo shows a bunch of favorites; the hearts from Studio Calico, sewing, stapling (with this mini stapler), and writing directly on photos (with these pens). But mostly, I love that it causes me to ask my daughter for photos of what she's up to when she doesn't think to send them herself.
And that these two are starting to not notice my candid picture taking.
I am crazy about the rub on transparent alphas that were part of the Studio Calico kit, and used them one week on all the photos so that I could document the entire photo filled week on one journal card:
Pretty sure that my hands down favorite this month was cutting a new shape into the page protector (details here).
That, and the capturing of our everyday ongoings. Nothing special, and special, all at the same time.
I loved the chipboard pieces from the Studio Calico kit, but also love using everyday items differently, like the card from the dollar spot at Target cut to pocket size.
More capturing of the everyday, more sharing in my daughter's life.
Making my own cards with script art will probably always be a favorite.
Same with see through pockets, this time with some hand cut paper hearts tucked inside.
Rub on stars left over from Christmas, love. But especially love the screen shot of a bunch of phone photos taken when Papa and Nike-the-dog were visiting one day.
My son actually taking pictures without being prompted by me which captures his unique photography perspective. Love it when they take the lead on telling the story.
And going with a little bit of "more is more" on occasion with the embellishing of a photo or two.
February favorites in my Project Life album...fun for me to revisit and remind myself what I want to do more of. For March that probably means another unique pocket page and another screen shot of the phone camera album. Any of you out there doing PL this year and have a link to yours to share with us? Always fun to see someone else's, so leave a comment if so!
There are a few more spots for the Love of Lettering class on Saturday March 8 at Studio Crescendoh (Santa Ana, CA), so as I'm starting to prep, I thought I'd show you some of the fun we're going to have in case any of you are local and want to join in the fun. Here's some of what we'll be doing...
We'll be making a hand drawn font book:
And we'll talk about how to create unique letters and where to get inspiration, and there will be lots of inspiration on hand too.
We'll address dip pens, nibs and inks, and touch on modern calligraphy...
And we'll also be exploring script lettering with round brushes and Sumi brushes.
There will be lots of other brush pens and self inking pens, markers, fine line black pens...basically, all the various ways and tools I use for lettering. They all make slightly different letters, so my aim is to provide a way for students to find their favorites. My plan is to introduce everything with enough time for students to explore them all, then do a little more in depth discovery with whichever tool/style they want. I'm looking forward to a day spent with others that love lettering as much as I do! If you're local and want to join us, go here for more info. I'm off to do more class prep!
As I'm going through my old journals culling content for the e-course, I find myself adding to some of the pages. I've never ever gone back through old journals before and altered them. It's kind of fun actually.
Often when I teach, I demo in my current journal. What ends up happening is a crazy page full of all different things from background techniques to mark making tools, but nothing consistent or pretty or finished. Which is fine. My goal with my journals is not to have pretty page after pretty page, but to have fun experimenting and exploring.
But yesterday, I found myself wanting to try to make the hot messes a little more cohesive, a little less of an example page and more of a messy journal page. Because they were there. Because I never usually go back. Because some of them really were very ugly.
The one above wasn't so much a sample page as it was unfinished, not colored in. It's funny to go back and play with a new perspective on something you started long ago. At times, I found myself pondering what it was I was even demonstrating way back when. It's all there, on the page somewhere.
In the end, some resulting pages were more pleasing than others. All ended up being pretty darn busy, with all that they had going on already, and all I added to them. I don't love any of them. Let's just say I wouldn't want them published anywhere other than here. Of course, I could have gessoed right over them if I wanted to, but that would have defeated my purpose; taking away the challenge of merging all the layers together in a more pleasing fashion. And it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun. I had fun working on all of them, and that's what really matters!
This is for sure one of my Project Life highlights for February. I decided to do an insert just for Valentine's Day itself and wanted it to be different somehow. At the first of the year, I saw Elise's title page for her PL 2014, and it inspired me. I adore things that inspire me to think differently than I have been. It's one of the many different kinds of inspiration I find, and it feels as if the inspiration unlocks a new door in my brain. I never know when it is going to happen, how long the idea will percolate, or how it is going to translate in my creating, but I can usually trace it back afterwards. I definitely like using ordinary materials in new ways. That's inspiring for sure. And really, isn't it cute? Wait, can pocket protectors be cute?
I'm still working on the spread that it will live between (seen behind it), but you get the idea here. (total side note- Target dollar spot has really good stuff right now for PLifers, for example, see that dotted card middle left? It's a pack of cards for $1.00 that I just cut up to size to make a journal card. Nice and heavy, not like thin paper, love it- they also have alpha stickers, labels, paper packs with cute designs, rolling date stamp, etc. Not that you likely need encouragement to stop by the dollar spot if you go to Target, but if you try to avoid it at all costs unless you know there's something good, and you do journaling/PL, you might want to stop by...I know I always appreciate a head's up.)
To make it, I cute a piece of paper to the size of the page protector, then folded as the pocket protector is, in other words, not in the center. I intentionally wanted a lopsided heart, of course, you could sew up the page protector so your heart was symmetrical. I then drew a heart shape on my piece of paper to determine where I wanted to sew the page protector. I sewed the pockets before I cut the edge off, this makes it easier to keep your pocket flat. When sewing page protectors, I treat it just like fabric. I do a little back stitch at the beginning and the end. On my sewing machine, I find that the middle size straight stitch looks most like the regular pocket protector stitches. I then cut the photos to fit the pockets, cutting the paper template first as practice. For the top two photos, there was no sewing involved, I just picked the photos and freehand cut the heart tops with the photo inside, so it'd be super easy to match up the shapes.
I haven't decided on a back yet, here are a couple different versions.
For Valentine's Day it seems the three of us at home have started a tradition of going to dinner and a movie with a stop at the photobooth for dessert. ;) (Well, if two years in a row a tradition makes.) Since my daughter is at college, we sent a care package and she sent me photos of her during the day and night. Always so grateful for technology when I recieve a photo text or email from my girl. (Of course, that's balanced out by a cursing of it when my son wants to "finish this game" before fill in the blank. )
Anyway, there you have it, a quick and easy idea for changing up pocket pages! I'll share more Feburary favorites from my PL next week.
Elise did a video tutorial on how she did hers. And also, LOVE Elise's new business venture, make29, and was happy to support it by purchasing her February art. You can still get one too if you like, I thought $14.00 was a great price. There she goes, thinking differently again...love it!
Ahhh, we've made it to another Friday. The weeks have been a little tough around here lately, and Friday at this time (4pm) sure feels good. I'm about to go collect my son, and once we're home, the weekend will have officially started for us. I'm hoping I can talk my husband into letting us order take-out from a favorite Italian restaurant. I'd love nothing more than to kick my feet up on the couch and watch some Olympics tonight (while crocheting!- I haven't gotten to work on the blanket for days, boo.). Speaking of, did you see the Women's ice skating long program last night? I was wowed big time. I hope you saw it or get to if you haven't, more amazing than usual somehow- to me anyway. Love seeing talented people pursuing their passion, whatever their passion is. Which I think we all should do - at least on occasion. Which then leads me to share this, that I also saw last night and loved. Also very inspiring. Good stuff to mull over for me, maybe you too? Whatever you're up to tonight, this weekend, I hope some of it includes pursuing your passions. xo
Oh, how I love to make! No surprise if you've read this blog for, what? more than a week? ;). It's true, I love creating, and this year, I started an album to document just my artistic pursuits. This way, I won't take over the family album with photos of my creative adventures, and I can take the detailed, in process photos that I enjoy taking, and have somewhere to keep them, other than on the blog.
I guess you could say it's another pocket page scrapbooking/documenting album in addition to Project Life. I'm using a Handbook that's covered in linen (I think it's linen anyway, similar to this one).
I started with that awesome cardboard piece that used to be the top of a notepad. (From HomeGoods over a year ago.) After a bit, the white on the inside of the cover seemed unfinished, so I added paper using my sticker maker and various paper pieces. Here's how it looks with the insides covered:
I hope that wasn't a mistake. After doing it and then seeing the photo of it with white insides made me question it, hahaha. Se la vie!
Ahhh, just fun for me. Good enough reason to do it in my book! I made the two letterpress cards on right with this letterpress machine. I love the L Letterpress system, my only complaint is that I'm really messy with it, and it's a little hard to clean up afterwards because it's oil based. It's one of those activities you want to have time to make a bunch of things, not just one offs.
I couldn't seem to capture via the camera the impression it makes, but it's there.
Since it's going to be for all of 2014, I decided to add monthly dividers. I just cut a piece of velum to size and painted on it with a Sumi brush and gouache.
Of course, I don't plan to include everything I make, not every journal page say, but a photo or two represents it just fine. January was a busy month, and there wasn't much creating going on apparently. I think it was mostly on the e-course, so I'll have to get a picture of that in there. February already has more photos. I'll share February when the month is over, which is next week?!?!? How is that possible?? Time's flying by, I'm glad I'm going to have this little album to see how I spent it creative-time wise when the year's over. Hooray for making!
While talking with a friend yesterday it hit me (in a different way then the usual), how we often don't harness our brains to our own benefit. From my experience, it seems more the norm to let negative thoughts run free and expand vs. positive ones. I have a good, creative imagination, just like the friend I was talking to, and as she fretted and worried about "what if" on the phone, elaborating on a negative possible scenario with great detail, I realized that we often make that "what if" a negative imagining vs. a positive one. I definitely am one that needs to get out of the habit of less than helpful thinking. Especially playing those less than helpful thoughts on a looping soundtrack in my mind. Imagine if the voice in one's head was a positive cheerleader vs. everything from a nervous nellie to a party pooper? I think it'd surely have a positive results. I'm going to work on recognizing which thoughts are helping and which are hindering and going to be more mindful of choosing the helpful ones. Recognizing what's positive and negative is the first step. Then I can work on breaking and replacing bad habits . Hmmmm...that's what's on my mind today, just thought I'd share the story behind the journal page.
This is a better thought for me to think:
Popping in with a progress report on the crochet blanket first blogged about on this post. I haven't had too much time to spend on it, but do find it such an enjoyable project for bursts and start type crafting. It just seems to add up to something pretty quickly in my mind even if you're doing a row here, a row there. I love when it's time to add a new row, because the entire blanket changes in my mind due to the new color. I was looking at it and if you take sections of the blanket, and just repeated those sections, you'd have a pretty blanket by itself, totally different than the other segments. Like this:
I love colors, but I especially love color combinations, how they play off each other. the exact same chartruese green above, looks totally different next to white as it does next to orange. I have no particular order, I'm just trying out new combinations as I go, occasionally making sure I've got some dark or some light every so often. I don't usually use black regularly, it's not a go to stitching/creating color for me. I'm enjoying the stretch of incorporating it in this blanket. I decided that I really wanted a mustard and a pink that wasn't purple or hot, so I did add a few new colors:
My favorite addition to the quilt has been that deep green. I also wanted a creamy-er white. Still not sure about the bright turquoise blue. In case you want to know:
On an instagram post I did recently, someone commented about how they liked the look of the rows of colors, but didn't want to weave in all the end threads afterwards, to which someone else suggested holding them on the blanket and crocheting over them as you go to hide them. It was a total "duh Pam" moment, as I have done that in embroidery before and it makes perfect sense. Also, the hanging thread tails were starting to annoy me too. So, after reading that, that's what I've been doing, as the picture shows:
So much nicer to work on without the tails there. Now, remember, this is my first crocheting ever...don't look too closely! I'm sure you're eye is catching some glaring mistakes on the strong colored rows, but also remember, I'm going with the attitude that home made isn't about perfect, it's adding charm, right?!? ;) As long as it's not in danger of coming apart (which it's not), I'm happy to plod on, one colorful row at a time!
Like I said, it's a pretty satisfying medium for seeing your efforts add up substantially as you go. I'd say I'm 1/3 or 1/4 done now, but I'm in no rush, I'm enjoying every minute of it. I think this is a super easy starter project because it uses the same stitch (dc) row after row....just in case anyone is tempted to join me on the adventure...report in if so, we want to know!
Wanted to let you know that we're bringing back this stitched heart class to French General Saturday May 3rd. Sign ups have gone live over on the French General workshop page. Hope to see new and old friends in class, all you have to do is sign up and show up, we'll have everything you need to join in the fun!!!
I made this heart as an anniversary gift to my husband, inspired by Sailor's Valentines. You can use it as a little pillow, a sachet, a paperweight, a pincushion...in other words, anything you want ;). To see another sample, go to the French General workshop page. The heart I made for Kaari is a little oversized and wonky, but super sweet I think. We'll have both samples there for you to use as inspiration. If you are joining us, you may want to bring along some special trinkets like buttons, beads or broaches, but we'll have all you need if you don't have any special treasures. And of course, there's the entire French General collection of finds to shop and use on your piece too!
Hey there, Happy Valentine's Day!!! Hope you've got plans to spend it exactly as you want to! For me most of the time it means home with no plans ;).
Wanted to thank those that are joining me for the live art journaling class next month at Studio Crescendoh...Sunday's Art of the Page class has one spot left! Saturday, the Love of Lettering class a few more open, so there's time on that one if you're considering it. Both are going to be fun days with lots of demos and doing included, I'm looking forward to them.
As for the e-course, it is a long, slow, simmer. I'm thinking of it like a delicious, hearty, slow cooked month of meals that I'm making, and that just takes this girl lots of time apparently. Regular life goes on all the while, and of course, all my fun techinical challenges and learning opportunities (you see what I did there?) add to the snails pace that seems to be the norm right now. I keep thinking (and still do) that one of these days, most of the challenges and difficulties will be behind me and the pace will pick up and suddenly, the feast will be ready! I just want to keep you updated to keep frustrations at bay, I'm experiencing enough of them, I don't want you to have to as well ;).
In the meantime, here are some journal pages either done, or added to recently:
Making valentines is always a favorite yearly activity. This year I had to start earlier to get my daughter's in the mail on time.
I saw a papercut on instagram by @hesperdoodle and that was it, I was soon papercutting my own version for my girl.
Here's it is before I did a little more sprucing (fine cutting). As this was my first ever papercutting, I had a bit of a rough result, but I love it none the less. I look forward to doing it again and I think I'll do a little research before I do another, and invest in a finer razor blade! To send it to her, I just glued it to a hot pink piece of paper so I could write a love note on the back.
While I had the brush script out, I made some custom gift wrap for my friend Jenny's belated b'day gift. I posted before about her solo art exhibit (called "I see boat people"), and I thought it totally appropriate theme for her paper:
She liked it ;). Love this pic of her too!
I love hand made things.
And Valentine's Day is especially fun due to giving love being the theme and all...
I decided to just do some re-cap shots for the rest of January PL here. I feel like the full spreads are rather boring, and when I thought about catching up to February, didn't think 2 more separate posts of the weeks were necessary. If you want to see my full weekly spreads, I'm pretty sure I'll be posting them over in my gallery in time. For the blog, I thought it'd be more fun to limit it to some favorite parts:
Found my white pen by the time I got to this spread. Had fun journaling right on top of the entire photo.
As part of my contribution to the life|scripted class over at Studio Calico, I was asked to do some script work examples on photos. Loved the result! You may remember this photo from when I shared some objects from a wall cupboard we have. Totally thought it was perfect to capture the sense of time racing that I was feeling.
I can't resist using parts of packaging, like that yellow piece of paper that was from a stamp kit. Carol sent me that photo collage, made in an app and I printed it as it was for the book. Need to do this more with my own photos!
I really do love the things that come in the Studio Calico PL kit each month. Love that their cards are printed on such heavy cardstock and already rounded. Went a little nutty for those chipboard stars this month. (when I went searching for the link, I found these too, oh man...trying hard to resist, there's just something about how flat they are, the sharp corners and colors and sizes!- oh, and while we're talking stars, these are also a favorite for me and used them this month too- not that you need them, just sayin'...)
Still loving the photos cut up among pockets look.
See? There's one of those gold stars I mentioned above. Can't stop. Won't stop. (couldn't resist, wink). But honestly, I've said it before, and to repeat myself; without having this album to slip photos into the pockets, some of the special yet ordinary moments of life would not be as celebrated, as noticed, as photographed. A friend's doodles on present wrapping...love it.
Same goes for getting pictures from my daughter at college. I don't think I'd hound her for photos nearly as often without this project to remind me to document regularly.
Or taking silly "selfies" or "couple-ies"- total selfie fail, but I'm instantly reminded of that night and how much fun we were having driving my son a bit nuts on the other side of the table. ;) And there's that instagram of him thinking next to it, love.
I absolutely would have taken this beach picture (although likely not the photo of the cute single serving karafe I found to be so cute), and it would have sat on my computer because I am otherwise lame at printing photos-something I'm going to work on this year. Last year, doing PL got me over my resistance to printing at home, now this year, I'm going to actually challenge myself to print some photos to frame! (Gettin all kinds of crazy over here!)
So, to sum it up; I'm still really grateful I'm doing Project Life pocket type documenting. I did want to give you a product update/review. I got this corner rounder because it's the same corner dimensions as the other cards, but I'm not getting the best results with it. Maybe it's just me (holding it in my hands to punch instead of on a table for example), or maybe it's just my individual rounder, but I've gone back to rounding corners with this "corner chomper" tool instead, I can hold it in my hand to cut, and it lives up to it's name: it chomps those corners like a champ!
Last summer, I attended a dinner at the Creative Bug Studio as part of AltSF conference. I was so excited when I got there, becuase I LOVE it when people host a party and go all out with the decor, and this dinner was one of those parties. I've searched my computer for a photo to share to no avail, not a one. I must have just had my phone with me, no camera. And usually, my phone has no storage, so I often can't keep photos long enough to upload to my computer once home. ( And no, I don't have the cloud on, again, a storage issue- ya, ya, I definitely have tech storage issues that all need addressing.) BUT, I was able to find one on my flickr page! Hooray- here is the party decor for the dinner. The small photo grid doesn't do it justice at all. Courtney Cerruti was the mastermind behind it, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with her. (She's even got a class over on creativebug about making creative party decor.)
Anyway, all that was just to tell you how I became aquainted with Courtney and her work. She's very talented in both arts and crafts and I find lots of inspiration in her creations. She's got a new book out I think many of you might like, Playing with Image Transfers. It's very cool. On her blog there is a promo video for the book too.
It's really a beautiful book, both the photographs and design overall, and I really love the paper, which is a big thing to me, how paper feels in my hands. I asked Courtney about the paper and she said that it was really important to her as well, and it's printed in uncoated stock. Yum.
This weekend I ran across this page of a bird book and thought it'd be a perfect addition to a journal page and decided to give one of the five methods she describes in the book a go. Not only was it super simple, but I love a craft that has a little moment where you feel like it's magic...
Can you see the birds there that were the top part of the original bird book page? Here's a better shot of a transfer from the same page onto a journal page of mine:
Not perfectly done, but perfection is not something I strive for in my journals. Instead I like to experiment and have fun, and this sure was. Congratulations Courtney, job well done! I'm looking forward to getting to try more projects from the book, especially how to transfer some of my own drawings onto different surfaces. As always, I'll share the results here when I do!
Hi there. Thanks for stopping by!
