Thanks for all the comments on my WOWW post. I did have a few requests for close-ups of my journal pages, so here they are: At the moment I have two going at the same time. This first page is from the journal I have posted about in the past. I have had this tissue paper with pocket watches on it forever and have used it to the last piece, which is on this page. ( If I ever come across it again I will buy it all.) I gesso'd up the page and added the blue ink, then the printed tissue paper making sure it had wrinkles in it. Up at the top is a piece of black hand made paper that I just brushed with a silver marker. The mesh is what is used when repairing dry wall, confiscated from DH. I added some stamped images from Reflections and watch parts from some old wrist watches I banged apart, and some Vintage Honey ink. At the last minute I grabbed some packing bubbles, ran it across the ink pad and pressed it onto the page. The upper arms were some I had from when I thought I was going to re-do a clock (well, we see how that turned out, I threw away the clock and kept the pieces) Had a lovely time creating this page.
This page is opposite the page of TIME. I colored the background then added some Zentangles that I had made while I was at work :o When you sit with headphones on and the calls have dropped to almost none, you still have to sit there. So on scraps of paper I did these, two of many, I cut trimmed them out and added them to the page with a few stamp flourishes.
Last night I had been on You Tube (again) watching more Zentangle videos until it was late, but I wasn't really sleepy, and wanted to try a few things I had seen (so I would remember them......ya know I am getting to that age...I mean I AM at that age LOL) So I took the journal, and pens to bed with me and made some quick notes. So here is what I am going to call a thought process, or warm up, or just notes. I had a drawing teacher (many years ago) that taught us to warm up before we began, I still do that, but at 11:30 PM is not a good time to do this...LOL NOTE: during the week, when DH has to drive the big truck and get up at
un-Godly hours I take to the spare bedroom. Hope that isn't TMI......
So there are the journals I have been working on this week, I've also finished a few more scrapbook pages and a card or two. Today is get packed and ready to head to San Diego in the morning. I am traveling with my DIL and 2 GDs, then DH will follow after work. Oldest son is already there helping his little brother with his new business. (they are 36 and 34 not so little anymore) THAT means I am going to have my whole family together! and THAT means all three of my granddaughters. STAY TUNED FOR LOTS OF PICTURES. LOL
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND THANKS FOR STOPPING BY....UNTIL NEXT WEEK
