Journal 52, week 12 A Day in the Life of ME

The days in my life are not really exciting, but this prompt gave way to some fun playing with inks and doodles and even some stamping. 
The background was created but first swiping gesso over most of the page with an old credit card, leaving some texture as I went.  Then the fun.........inks were sprayed on and then spritzed with water to make then run.  While still wet, I dripped some alcohol on it......oooooo love the effect!  I sketched my coffee mug, because my day always starts with a hot cup of coffee, laid out the words to be doodled in with marker.  I always TRY to get some art into my day, thus a paint brush, and there is always laundry to do and as it says "but not today"......LOL    The little clothes were cut with the Cricut, the stamps are, of course House Mouse.  There is more doodling along the edges but the scanner isn't quite large enough to get the whole page, and I it is just too early in the morning to dig out the camera.
Top of the page with the doodles words.

the journaling in the middle along with the HM stamp

The bottom of the page with the clothes line (thank goodness I don't have to use one of these) and then my stamping HM stamp, along with most of the paint brush....LOL
 So this is my journal page for this week, it was a fun page to do, even if my life is quite dull most days. BUT  I an happy to have each and everyone of them.....LOL

  1. Your post is MUCH better than mine. First, you started with coffee, and I completely forgot to add a coffee cup. Then, you stamped, doodled, and had lots of fun, things I'm not sure I had while making mine. I love the doodles and your awesome words about Betsy.

    Great job for this challenge. I can't believe we are BOTH caught up and ready to go on to bigger and better things.

    Heads up. Try posting early for T this week.

  2. I just love it. The colors are so pretty and your doodling is great.

  3. Ordinary days are sometimes the best days if you ask me. Love the tiny clothesline. Nice page for the challenge.


  4. i just got everything together for this prompt. I really like how you composed this and the little mouse writing.
    Enjoy your trip south

  5. Wow, this is a brilliant page, Krisha... love the mixed media background - very cool inky effects. And all your sketching and doodling and handwriting is wonderful... I'm so in awe of anyone making their own marks on paper rather than relying on stamps as I do! Love the thinking too...

  6. I love this!! Starter fluid! Yup!
    This is so cute and much of it is similar to my days. I haven't done this challenge yet because I got sick. Well, I suppose I could do a sick day--LOL! ;)
