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?
