Random stuff

Okay, so I was so inspired by the video (I ended up watching about 20 of SuziBlu's art videos this morning!) that I started an art journal. I have been wanting to do this for awhile now, but had lots of excuses why I couldn't start it just yet. Now the excuses are all gone- or rather, I covered them up- I wrote them on these pages, then covered them in gesso, and then played with my new irredescent paintsticks. This isn't done yet, but I started it. Yay for me. I am so an artist!
Today's workspace- lest you thought I would leave it all pristine and nice. No such luck. My friend (for whom I cleaned this all up last week) did not come today, sigh, but I didn't let that stop me. Looky the great fun mess I made! See all my new ink stamps? The fabric paper I started last week is looking so colorful and different now.
See? Lots of stamped images (even more now than what you see here) and layers of paint and gesso. I am liking it more and more. I cut the big sheet up into several smaller pieces, from which I can make other stuff.
Here is the pinky-purple-orangey one, too. I really didn't like this one, but it is so pretty now.
And as usual, my partner in crime who keeps me company whenever I am in the studio depths, Sassy-Cuddlepuff. She is probably cleaning the paint off her fur in this photo- she had just laid on my freshly painted fabric paper. Sigh.

That's it for now- I still have an art supply post to get up today.

I had a cat related thought: my cat hates the table fan blowing on her, even on its lowest setting.....

Beautiful, beautiful. I like the orangey purple one!

OK - you need to come here and give me some guidance on using color - I love what you do with colors!

Amy,
I can recommend several resources on colors- and yes, I do love playing with colors. It is one of my fave things ever. That is probably why I have so much fabric!

Mama P,
I read this, thought, "Oh cool! Good idea!" You would have laughed and laughed- the fan took care of the cat, all right, but it also blew all my stuff off the table- I forgot it had been on high the last time I used it. I am still giggling.

Pamela,
I knew you would love the green one!
