I love to play with images! SMASH books and art journals are part of my inner teenager, I think!
Here is the newest Smash book which I got from K&Co. It actually has several pages for each month, chronologically arranged.
The inside is New Year's Day
Next a couple of January pages..
A Christmas card with a painting by Jimmy Carter.
Just chillin, hanging out with friends...
Then February, I can't make myself cover up their groundhog .....Gayle and I went to see the Maya Angelou life quilt at Crystal Bridges.
A larger format than the Smash journal, my art journal is a multimedia sketchbook from Strathmore. I decorate the cover with photos of art and colorful paint chips.
Inside I have many large messy pages....often these are ongoing, I will continue to paste something in to fill up the page as I find these pieces...
This one has my thought on turning 65 and getting Medicare....still adding. The circle of blue reminds me of the earth. It was done with a gelli plate, a monoprint.
Colored watercolor pencils and stencils are the backgrounds of these pages about our travel agent daughter, Laura.
Now, before this turns into one of those "days when it took me all day to not get anything done",
I am heading downstairs where my sewing studio is,to sew for the twins!
