More July journaling

Although the weather has just started being sunny and warm, this shows my feelings on summer, I guess.  What's that song?  "Lazy bones...sleeping in the sun... "

collage and quotes


colors, words, a little collage 
and the busyness and dizzyness of summer

A watercolor day

Homework for my "No Excuses Watercolor" online class.  Enjoyed doing it; painting after a picture from a magazine.  Was fun!  No pencil - straight with the pen, so elipses aren't perfect.  But who's perfect?

Journaling along with July...

So...just some thoughts and weather.  Amazing to look back and see all the rainy, cloudy days we've had lately.

And my neighbors farewell party.

The beginning of a star-spangled grid.

Notes from this morning.

One little drawing done so far.  The dogwood I saw at Morton Arboretum.

And the start of two July collage pages.

And Henri and friends...

Journaling July

Starting the month with a grid that I showed the gals in our Journaling Session at The Center.  Decided to add some text; a song that I love.  Whenever I hear it, it makes me think of when Cinerama first came out and you saw our beautiful land in "cinemascope".

Had to make a page in memory of this beautiful summer day last year and the fabulous cloud that I saw as I was wandering around in Julie's backyard.   It made such an impression on me.

 If you can't find him, look for his nose; his face is looking upward and his mouth is open with wonder.
