Work in progress...

Art Journal #1... multiple entries.

 
Wow, its been almost a month since I posted anything... too long if you ask me!  I have been very busy at work, so by the time I get home and do the mommy and wifey thing, I'm exhausted!! 
My goal is to set some time at least once a week, but sometimes I'm just too tired to lay everything out, create, clean up and put everything away (with my Ethan, who BTW will be 4 on the 22nd of Sept, I can't leave anything out!).   

Ok enough of me whining... here are some journal entries that I started, but once I got to a certain point I wasn't sure how to proceed, so I just left them along.  I do keep looking at them, I think I might leave some as is and just add some journaling, but, well, I don't know...
(a)(b)
(a) water color crayons, doodle flower I scanned from my doodle pad and printed onto white tissue paper and decoupaged to adhere.  (b) water color crayons background with mini bricks stencil (TCW191), butterflies out of dictionary pages (can't remember what I used to color them, this was last month.  I guess I should jot down what I use somewhere). 



This page I just completed Thursday evening, well actually Friday morning. I started with a collage (Map pages from National geographic), used gesso as a wash, some text stamps, model paste for the mini 4 flowers stencil (TCW327) and I printed out a sketch of myself (or a version of me) onto white tissue paper.   
 
I hope to share more with you soon.  Thank you for stopping by!

Be Blessed Always,
Carmen
