It’s been a while since I blogged. It’s not a self imposed stoppage, just been so busy with other things that I haven’t gotten around to it.
Here’s what been keeping me busy 8 am to 5 pm most days:
However, last weekend I was asked to help out at booth at the Oasis Gift show, a wholesale show. It was a 2 day show with set up the day before. The booth next to ours was one named Poetic Earth and they sold the loveliest leather handbags and journals. Well, I’m not one to turn down a good deal on something I love so I bought this, at wholesale no less. It’s a 7” x 10”, 220 pages of handmade paper, book full of Awesomeness! Regular retail price is $79.00 and I paid $35.00, making it even more wonderful.
I also scored a walnut flute for My Guy.
So in an effort to get back in the groove of creating art I worked on this background page. I figure if nothing else, I can work on some background pages. I’ve got another one in progress but not so far along that I want to show it.
The journal paper takes paint well, without tearing or pilling. My last journal, while I loved the feel of the paper, it didn’t hold up under scrubbing or erasing. This one appears to be much better.
