Today is Tuesday April 5 and after clearing up my mess of months, my work top is visible and my journals are caught up. This is what I am working on :
Documented Life Journal, The Unplannner. Each week there are assignments and tasks. Last week was pocket picks where you make a pocket for things to remember about the month. I just glued them to the page as they included photos of our trip to the coast and south texas. It was also the first time I managed to figure out how to use my new Canon printer. it is not difficult to use but new and different for my ancient brain to grasp.
This week the PAC (really ATCs) challenge was black and white. I just had fun.
Next is Journal 52; this site was bought late in 2015 by Effy Wild and has become really artsy. Many good artist joined the group and really set a high standard. Week 12 was emulate or duplicate a famous artist. I chose David Hockney " Maelstrom Bodo"
Week 13 was a Lyric either a Mondegreen( yes, you may have to Google this word!!!) or actual Lyric. My choice was the original version of "Yesterday" by Charles Aznavour. The lyrics are from the English version and I had no idea that it was a song of regret!
This week was either roots or seeds; roots always makes me think of maths or inheritance so after playing around with scraps this emerged.
final Journal is my everyday journal called a Fauxbonichi. I like doing this journal though rarely post as posting seems such a hassle! Just a selection. Since the last upgrade to my 'puter wiped out my Print Master program and the new versions are rubbish, a solution was required. There is a mini printer that works off heat called a Selphy and prints out small photos ideal for a small journal or planner. ( there is a whole industry built around this size photo and planners) This was considered but paper is expensive and it is limited. My choice, the new Canon MG77220 that incorporates a Selphy program( yet to use) and other features I am only just mastering. It was a bargain on Amazon and is very slick in a techie way.
This was yesterday when I finally "GOT IT". The photos are old and the first i found! printed on 4x6 sample paper.
below was just before my success so i tried drawing.
AND here we are my work space today, clean for me a "messy"
My other desks ready for action.
With the onset of summer days, the Mistress of Monica's Place, Xochitl and Ms Kitty prefer to lie in the sun.
Have a great week and plan is to visit y'all
