Today started well, despite a rubbish nights sleep (no idea what was wrong but don’t you just love the peri-menopausal leg twitch and wide awake-ness when you just want to be asleep!) Anyway despite not being awake, I managed to tease the daughter enough to get a FacePalm and eyeroll and the announcement that I am “in a pedantic mood” ha ha. The weather is a bit changeable. I had to drive the kids to school as it was raining at the time they needed to leave but had stopped by the time I drove them, typical. They have to walk 1.5 miles each way, so I am happy to give them a lift occasionally – just not TOO often – the fresh air and exercise is good for them 🙂
Today’s art has been finished nice an early – I’m quite impressed with myself!
My Journal Page is using my Scribble & Dot A5 Dot grid notebook, I brayered 2 different greens and Titanium buff acrylic paints, then when it was dry I layered it with Gold Acrylic. After this I used items from my February kit from Kia. The theme today was “Collecting Memories” and the base colour was formed because of the Green of the shell washi. I have even added some writing – for a very real change!
After this is my Daily lettering challenge, although I think I chose more of a collage page than a lettering page, the purple square at the bottom is me playing with gouache received in a sale Scrawlrbox a few days ago (oh I haven’t written about them!) Today its is a quote of my choice from any BAFTA film. My quote is “I want the Fairy Tale” from Pretty Woman. I love that movie and I definitely need to get our daughter to watch this sometime. She is more Marvel and Wizardry based, however there is the occasional rom-com in her remit.
I’ve just watched a Maremi SmallArt YouTube video “Don’t Overthink – Just Journal Away in 10 minutes”, and as part of it she said about getting free digital downloads, and added a link to tell my friends, so here you go. I hope you like them as much as I do.
Last night I completed a LifeBook class from Week 12. Pia Rom is the Tutor Artist, and I really liked her style of tutorship. She completes her page in real time with little chat, you can watch and play or watch and do it later. I made this whilst our son was at Scouts.
The other thing I am super pleased with myself about, I created myself a lino cut stamp for my logo! I have had the kit for ages, its an Artful Lino-cut box set and this is all I’ve done with it so far! but I’m pretty happy with it.
Well that’s it for today, its only 11 am and I need to do something “house” that actually will manifest itself in something “Arts and Crafty” I am sure 🙂
