I forgot to post pictures of Karma out on the porch...
...when it was just warm enough...
...to sit and watch for bugs or swallows.
She had no sightings, of course, and it's been too cold once again since our few days in the 40s.
Challenges for Journal52...Create for a Cause.
Note the thermal mug for T-Stands For Tuesday over at Elizabeth's. :)
I decided to put those green moleskine pages to use. Just printed off an earth from google images and wrote "Earth...
...is a good cause."
Kind of cheating to do so little, but I couldn't think of much else.
We had sun one day. I've still been tending to the flipping of the fauxmidori covers...
...and crumpled up a ball of the waxed paper...
...but Karma wasn't impressed. She still prefers those ties from the paper drying rack--LOL!
The current (yes, I said current) Journal52 challenge is "Stars". I sprayed a page spread in my junk journal with blues and purples.
The colors are deeper and more varied in person. (I am really loving my Dylusions sprays and the Distress Paints!!) My camera always changes the shades, too. I took several pictures and this was the best I could do. Anyways, now I just have to add stars, I guess. But...
...this is why I call it my junk journal. See what happened to the pretty multicolored page I had done that was on the backside? Mostly destroyed by bleeding blues.
And this is the next page...already blue seeping through here, too.
Told you this is really cheap watercolor paper--LOL! That is why I do not get attached to anything I create in here. Not that I can't totally mess up in any journal whatsoever, but the odds are increased ten-fold in these I made with the low-quality WC paper. ;) I should probably only do the one page at a time, I guess, eh?
Caroline will be here this afternoon. No sun today. Snoring cat. Quiet. I am off to nuke some lunch. I'm still not back into my old routine quite yet--easily side-tracked and didn't post when I got up. But I am getting there--and so happy about that!
Short and sweet today.
Have a good one!! :):)
