Flu week

So, no mono thank gawd but I managed to catch a flu bug and it laid me out pretty horizontal almost all week.
Whilst being stuck on the couch I had my ever-patient husband set up a tv tray with some drawing implements on it for me, so I at least could work in my little journal and make some ATCs.

So not funny

I may have caught mono from my sister. *cue much rolling of eyes* Even if I haven't, I have caught something and I no longer have a voice. I'm also feverish and achey. Bleah! Bleah I say!
In spite of it, I am fairly happy... I've joined up at Illustrated ATCs and found a host of really talented folks on there. I'm in my first swap which was based on Colour Lovers palettes. My group was Braving the Brain and this set of four ATCs is what I was inspired to do.

New book!

I discovered since I finished my last little square hemp journal that I missed having the little square format to play with. So last week I picked up another one! Here's the front cover and inside front cover. Fluid acrylics, some gold shimmer, some scraps of pretty paper and oil pastels for the flowers, which I drew on text pages.

A quick journal spread

Inspired by some leafy skeletons that Patti gave me and playing with green-gold fluid acrylic.

Some ATCs

I have actually been doing a fair bit o' arting, but nothing totally finished. Plus, I have this rather large painting on the go that's sucking all of my attention. :) In the meantime, here's a few ATC's that I've been working with while other things dry.
