I'm writing this Wednesday evening as I have a busy day on Thursday. I'm off to see my mom and she has an early doctor's appointment. And since I have to drive 2 hours to get there, I'll be of with the sunrise (practically).
So today I want to show you another tag for the challenge going on right now at Try It On Tuesday.
I made it with layers of stamping with some different colored inks. Then I added a scrap of old book paper, the TH people, some paper scraps and a little metal star.
And awhile back I showed you this journal cover that I was in the process of making.
I have been working on the inner pages and thought I would show you a few pages.
This book follows the path of the tides, more or less.
I bought a package of brown paper bag paper from Amazon, and I really like it. It holds up well to paint and matte medium. And it was easier to make book pages with than having to cut up paper bags-as I would need several. Around here the only store I get brown paper bags in is Trader Joe's, and we use those for our recycling. The stack of paper wasn't cheap, but the package came with 200 sheets so I am happy to have it for some other projects. Especially now that I know how well all my media work on it.
An added plus is I can run it through the printer too.
And after incoming tide you get high tide. This one is when the ocean is a little rough from the white foam on the top of the waves.
As its got an ocean theme, and the ocean is a fun place to be in the summer, I am linking up to Elizabeth's summer love challenge over at Art Journal Journey.
So today's art was wall painting. When my daughter was last living away from home I started to paint her room. She had this bright blue paint in there, which was great for a teenager, but not what I wanted. I was in the midst of painting and had 3/4 of her room done when she suddenly moved home. This was 2 years ago.
So now that she has gone again, I decided I was going to finish it up right away. Before the paint isn't any good or summer ends and I am back to work.
And so that was today's artsy endeavor.
Did you have an artsy endeavor today?
