It has been a while dear bloggy friends. Almost the whole month of June and I did not get along this year, but so far July has been much better! So onward to the creativity that has been taking place around here during the “post June” recovery, lol.
I recently signed up for another class from the wonderful and inspiring Jane Davenport, and I am having so much fun with it! I made a quick little sketch book for the colored pencil drawing lessons, and because who doesn’t need another sketch book on hand? 😛
I used some leftover signatures from a previous project I had laying around, and cut up the heavy watercolor paper I had been using as a cleaning place for my brayer and stencils, for the cover. Love how simple it was to make, and now I have a new sketch book for drawing faces! Yay!
I started a journal page when I was feeling better, and I kept thinking of how even tho I had been sick most of June, it wasn’t something permanent and I should be grateful to be on the mend. The lyrics from Paul Westerburg’s song “a good day” kept coming to mind so I put them on the page. The background was very busy, so I kept the embellishments simple, just manilla and foil butterfly punch outs and a tag. I hand stitched a heart onto the tag before gluing it to the page and added a few stitch-like marks with a micron pen.
And a couple of backgrounds I don’t think I have shown on the blog before (if I have, please forgive me. I’m still getting back into the groove of things 🙂 ):
The bottom two have gelli print bases with a few embellishments. I love how much depth the gelli print can give a page! And I am still loving drawing on book pages, then painting or coloring them and cutting them out to use in my journal! ♥
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope all is well with you!
