Amazing whenever I decide to clean up my workspace I am overcome by tiredness. Today is no exception . My day was spent messing up the page for The Documented Life Journal. I need to start with a background. using glue dots(Zots) is a skill I must learn. journals I think are not a final product but a learning of processes.
My workspace today. My DLJ the challenge was to use a tea bag but it is not visible on the left page. i copied an old drawing that was done with ink on cellophane onto the tea bag. This was after attempting to print on tissue paper. it just would not work and the glue ruined the image.
these techniques take a lot of practise. I had a class on this about 10 years ago and found some images from there. These below were from there but the red is a print on a transparency
This page was not planned the upper right is a print on fabric and below is my copy of the original drawing called gaggy on the rocks. The woman is my adopted mother and the photo is from 1925, the original drawing about 1912.
Well time to make dinner. Tomorrow i head for doctors appointment in San Antonio for my annual osteoporosis check. Then thursday back to take my sweetie for OP surgery, carpal tunnel. The weather forcast is for scattered thunderstorms.
I am trying to plan what i want to sign up for next year. Wanderlust 2016 looks interesting. I spent time this morning investigating planners and decided I do not need one for daily journaling as they are all too complex. Planners have pages for plans of plans and organizing your plans plans and...... stickers galore, tabs for tabs and oh so much. ( check this inkwellpress.com). No wonder i am tired!
have a great week everyone making your art.
