A quick update

Had the worst birthday ever, last Monday, but some good news later in the week and getting myself two new paints made up for it! Art does wonders. ;)
The first piece is in my journal and is a mix of paper, acrylics, watercolour and ink with Esme The Vicious sitting there (maybe) temporarily. She might get a better background at some point. The second piece is in my small journal that I'm going to have to replace soon! It is on its last few pages. The background is built up paint and paper with leaf ribbon and even more paper on top. The chimera-type-dude was done on some japanese dictionary page. The third is an 8x10 canvas board with my two new acrylic paints and some cheesecloth and bubble wrap. I think I'll be putting a fish or two in there to finish it off at some point.

Catching up with my journal

I've had some of these sitting and waiting to get uploaded for a while, but just haven't had time to take photos during the day. I still didn't have time during the day, so the photos aren't the greatest, but I'm crossing it off my to-do list anyway! Oh, and the side borders for the cat-like-thingy are from my pieces of the art paper we made at Patti's tea party. Neat, neat stuff.

Having fun with letters

Patti was teaching me some lettering techniques today!
I got a little carried away...
Hey, who let that cat in here?? Wasabi, this is not time for your close-up.

Not a totally wasted weekend...

... but pretty darned close.

In between family obligations and mechanical difficulties that would be easy to fix, if we had any money, I at least managed one spread in my newest journal.

This was inspired by one of my husband's favourite songs, "Fairies In Boots" by Black Sabbath.
