this week has been a crazy school week for the kids,
but working in my art journal has been very do-able.
sometimes I'd rather be a mad painter in an airy light-filled loft
... but I'm a mom, driver, cook, maid, etc ...
if I were the mad artist in a loft
... I would wish for momming, driving, cooking, etc....
so I doodle
and I blog
Here's how I did these pages:
ink-jet printed image
(it's me at age 6)
mod-podged face down
about an hour later, dampen ink jet paper
carefully rub and peel away paper, leaving image behind
mod podged second image face up
a bit of gesso to soften the edges
a bit of color (I used watercolor pencils)
tea bag paper for my words
words mod-podged down
a little more gesso, color and doodling
just trying to be myself today
