A calm day yesterday. Ventured out to base to check on the mail (Our american mail comes to the post Office on base, the APO). No packages, just boring mail telling us the situation on the bank account. The kind of mail that gets deposited on Mr Wonderful’s desk to then dissappear in some file cabinet.
On my way to base I found sheep huddled up, and a farmer working with them.
iPhone to the rescue once more because my camera resided on the living room table at home. Darn it. You can bet on it that when I think there will be nothing to photograph, reality will prove me wrong. It’s a fact: not having your camera makes you loose images that could have been. It’s official now. But hey, even I have days – although not a lot – that the beast has to stay home. Sheeptalk: I think that the young one on the left was the one that I saved from a certain death when he got caught in the fence a couple of weeks ago. I know for sure it was a white one that I saved…
On that same living room table I worked on some art journal pages. Time to move to my craft room again. The mess is spreading.
I cut up a Botticelli image for her face, used Tumblefish elements and borders. The M and the L vanished from Mysterious and Logical because I did not have room on the page. But that’s what art journaling is about: you can do whatever you want. Nobody will nag at you for being silly. Or maybe they will but who cares?
There is something deeply calming about glueing and pasting and cutting.
And Misty Mawn inspired me to use her paper doll lady image for a transfer. I got her book and was so pleased to find a push out paper doll in the back. I remember having those paper dolls as a kid, we made them ourselves by cutting them out of magazines and papers. The dresses had little flips on them to attach to the body.
Art journaling brings me back to my kiddy days. The leaves are a stamp by Dyan from Art from the heart colored in with copic markers.
A day past doing fun things. Today is laundry day. Who wants to know? Right, nobody…Share
