And...


once again trying to catch up...
This month was book club at my house.
Really good book; we all liked it!


A morning snack while we are discussing...


and I love these little dishes that I found at Goodwill!  Made in Italy.

Friday, May 22, 2015


Life gets in the way sometimes...and I am so behind on my blog that I think I will just go backwards from this week and on back for a few posts to try to catch up.  This blog is also like a journal for me to remember my days...
Above is the Spring collage piece that I'm working on for my Wednesday class.


And so here are my "No Excuse Art Journaling" pages, so far, for May.
Decided to practice my collage idea in here before i began my piece, and then notes about the birds that cross my life...


and just notes for the days...


remembering special days...
 



 Lettering pages with poetry that I found and love...


Thoughts, colors and weather


Colors and words for May


More special happenings...


and tiny watercolors

This week's collage class


I began at  home, doing a little layout, in my journal, of the idea for my collage this session.


A windy sky.  Birds sailing along.  The dark horizon with waves moving toward the shore.


And another day of paper-making on Wednesday.


Everyone brought trays of some sort as this painted paper will stay wet and has to be moved on a flat surface to take home to dry.








The mopped-up paper towels are always a favorite.  You know, nothing gets thrown out in collage!


And then had to do one of our favorites - paint dropped on white art tissue paper.

Journaling Meeting for the month of April


We had a nice little group, even though we missed some who were out of town.


Lots of sharing of ideas...




And then we went on to creating our own "washi tape"...


using Scotch Removable Tape, acrylics and a palette knife.




















And here's how it looks when decorating our journal pages.










And some of the girls' sample pages for the month
