Pocket Journal

i made myself a little pocket journal out of a playing card
box after watching Tracy Moore (Teesha Moore's husband)
construct his in a video through The Artstronaut's Club.

i have to say i'm pleased at how it turned out. the link below
is a video flip through. i'm not set up to video in my studio
so it's just my phone camera and a one handed flip through
but you'll get a glimpse anyway.

More Random Acts of Kindness

it's been a while since i've abandoned any art.
i'm having lunch with a friend today and plan to
leave the cork for the waiter….the rock will be
left at the book store.

everyone likes an occasional gift.
do you practice random acts of kindness?

The Sisters

i tried to do some clay mono printing that resulted in
a major fail. i could have kept trying but when it dawned
on me that i was limited to the material i could print on
i decided to try something different. i purchased a Gelli
Plate last year and had never even opened the package
so i dug that out and started experimenting. i'll have to first few prints were failures also. the majority
of my paints are not heavy bodied and trust me when i makes a BIG difference. i'm going to have to
"rob peter to pay paul" and go on a paint buying spree.
(i say that like it breaks my heart...snerk!)
that's my mother in the lower right corner and the
middle of the three girls. the others are her sisters.
i've got a box of old family photos that i don't think 
either of my children will be interested in saving
after i'm gone. i decided to put them all in an art
journal in hopes that maybe that will entice one
of them into continuing my position as the
family history keeper. i plan to include an index
in the journal with the names and a little history
of who is in each piece.

Once Upon a Time.....

today's journal spread with a quote from Terry
Tempest Williams book...When Women Were Birds.
i love this book...i've had it for years and frequently
reimmerse myself in her world.

i'm a singer....
i sing all the time...
people would appreciate it
more if i could carry a tune....
doesn't stop me....

i am NOT my Mother

i did a little journaling with Procreate today. 
i really like digital journaling. the cost of apps
is way less expensive than art supplies. i usually
print the page and glue it in one of my journals
adding a little paint or ephemera to finish the piece.

by the way….every time i pass a mirror i have 
to remind myself that i am NOT my Mother...
