Remains of the Day!

I've been having so much fun taking the Remains of the Day class offerred on line by MaryAnn Moss. I've already completed two journals, and there's no telling when I might stop. The journal is a mish mash of scraps of paper, epherma, fabric, and junk sewn together to make a journal. The idea is to put your everyday happenings in it, from the mundane to the exciting. Here are some pictures for you.

So now I just have to fill it up! I'll post more pictures as that happens. It's been fun taking pictures of mundane things just to have some photos to add. Everyday can be a photo op.!

Journal entries

I find myself draw towards posting pretty drawings, not focusing on the journaling aspect of my art journals. I've got some finished journal pages done that I thought I'd share. It feels good to complete something, even if it might not be as interesting as a drawing. There is something about words, writting, text that I really love though. Just the look of it, I don't even have to read it.

This is a quote from Orly Avineri from a class I took at journalfest. Some students really wanted to know the next step, or what the final outcome would be and she wouldn't tell us.

The journal entry above I'd previously posted without any wording.  In case you can't read it, "If we all spent as much time feeling beautiful as we did feeling ugly, the world would reflec that back to us. Focus on what you like about yourself and live your life from that place. Go forth and be fabulous!"

Have a creative day!

I carved a stamp!

Here is my first attempt at stamp carving. I think I like it. What should I carve next?
