Altered Book: rev 2.1

"Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I've embellished the art journal backgrounds the kids did for me with brayers. On the left, I made lines with a white Permopaque marker {meh...} and wrote with turquoise Sharpie Poster Paint Marker. Then I drew a mandala doodle with neocolors, because the way they pop on black ink is just addictive. Have you tried black gesso yet? Have you tried neocolors on black gesso while sipping a cup of earl grey tea? While avoiding the laundry? What did you skip in order to do art today?

Hmmm . . . I have a confession to make . . . .. I DID skip laundry this afternoon to play in my studio! LOVE the exuberance of the different markers on the black gesso. And that neon effect . . . . WOW!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Like you, I want to write...I just don't make time for it the way that I should. I'm not even making time for art the way I mean to do. you've really got me thinking.

Love the colors and the close-up of the "write write write" is a great shot.

Peace & Love,
Craft Therapy

Tammy these are both great! I love the differences between the two! I'm totally with you there, you gotta do what speaks to YOU in your Art Journal! I think it's neat how the kids did the background for you and then you
get to embellish it!! Such Fun!!
