Tuesday once again, and I am linking up with Elizabeth and T-Gang. This past week just wooooshed by, and darn near wore me out.
So on to "what's in my cuppa" this week................................
Looks more like something for WOYWW huh? DH worked all night, getting in at a very early hour and was asleep when I got up. I got my walk in early, and it was a nice cool morning, good for walking, and I met a lot of other walker enjoying the cool air too. Since I needed to keep the house on the quiet side, I decided to make a couple more pages in my secrets journal. My coffee mug stands in need of a refill, while I used the "throw away" part of a sticker sheet for a stencil for my butterflies. I colored them in with a Pitt Artist pen, knowing the India ink would per permanent once it was dry. The pages were pre-Gesso.
I added more Pitt Artist pens and used my fingers to smudge them before they dried. A swirly stamped images were added and then I made circle by using the bottom of a paint bottle and an ink pad.
Since I am writing in this journal the pages were a tad to brightly colored for the ink to show, so I washed some white acrylic paint over then to tone them down a bit.
A matching paper was made to use as a pocket. and the black cord to my embossing gun.....LOL
The finished pages, decorated with stickers and Washi tape. The pocket holds a little note card for my "secrets".....*grin* The pocket is like a flap so I can write behind it too.
I've been having a great time making this journal, and try not to make the pages too far in advance.
I have been keeping up with my walking, sometimes going to the gym in the afternoons when it is too hot to walk outside, and I am starting to feel better. My left foot must have some arthritics, it bothers me in the mornings......but a couple Alieve seem to help that.
It's getting late here (Monday night), and I have to be at the dentist at 7:30 am to get my teeth cleaned, then run a few errands, and try and make it to the gym before I get back here to visit everybody. So you most likely won't hear from me right away, but I'll be around in the evening or a little later in the week.
