Karma waiting patiently for me to put up the foot on my chair so she can snuggle up between my legs under my tilted reading table while I type on my laptop...which is where she is right this very second. ;)
Okay--the art journal red and yellow page spread...
...after it dried under the crinkled saran wrap.
You have to leave it alone all day or overnight and not touch or peek.
But it is such fun when it comes time for the big reveal!
I am happy with ii and think I'll leave this as it is for now and move on to the next background. I have an idea involving straws that I have never tired before. ;)
I received this gorgeous card from Iggy yesterday!
He saw this card with the real leaves on it and thought of me!!
Thanks so much, Iggy! :)
Things like this are what amaze me about my blog friends and touch my heart more than you'll ever know. What a wonderful world we live in. :):)
I worked a little more on the mandala. Took a kind of orangish-brown, crossed my fingers, and did a trial blending on a small yellow area.
I liked it!
So I continued on lightly shading all the yellow areas.
I decided to just let it dry and leave it alone for a day or two. To be able to look at it with a fresh eye, so to speak. I am liking the white areas so far and am deciding whether to leave them like that or not before I go on to the next step...the doodling! There will be some kind of black doodles in those white areas...well, I'm not the best at visualizing when I have no clue what doodles I am going to make until I start--LOL! So, I have to really like each step along the way--as is.
Anyways, it's 27 degrees and supposed to be sunny today. Only three more days of nablopomo and AEDM and the mandala class! Wow! This has been quite an experience! I've met quite a few wonderful new people who have inspired me to keep plugging away all month and I hope to keep in touch with after November ends. And I hope it wasn't too much for all my dear, loyal readers and blog family to have to put up with me every single day. Only three more days and I'll be back to my erratic self--LOL! ;)
Have a lovely, lovely day!! :):)
