It was another gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!
For a few minutes the sky will glow on the horizon and the colors shift...
...until the sun rises up...bright and yellow. :)
Karma's been spending a lot of contented time in her newly uncovered bed.
Doesn't seem to miss her box cave.
Karma doesn't pine for the past or think farther ahead than her morning treat.
A police car sat outside for a long time?
I puttered about.
Got the art table pretty much set up for November--tada!
I decided that I am finally going to use one of the watercolor journals that I made a few years ago.
Yes! I have been so afraid to actually use them--to make that first mark, you know?
[Confession. I have a lot of different types of journals in pristine condition.]
Anyways, I made my few journals with actual 140 lb. watercolor paper. Just cheaper paper from a tablet, but it's watercolor paper. So, I should be able to really play!!
I got out a couple of the Sucrets watercolor palettes I made...
...my Radiant Rain and other misters...
...and my trusty timer so I don't overdo it. ;)
I was wondering how I could paint and mist on just the one page and not get it all over the place. (The journals I made are about 5 X 7 or smaller.) I decided to cut up some butcher paper to slide under the page and over the adjacent page. (The paper was so curly that I had to kind of roll up in the opposite direction and smash a little to flatten it out.)
Anyways, I'll try that and see how it works. [With my anal/OCD tendencies, I really wonder how good I can ever expect to be at this being "loose"--LOL! Wish me luck, eh?]
I have a non-stick sheet underneath it all. Leah and I actually use oven liners for craft sheets. They're larger than most of them they sell at the craft stores and we got ours with a 20% off coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond so they were cheaper, too. ;)
For any actual misting I have a good sized designated cardboard box that I use. Don't want colors on the white walls--LOL! I'll set the misting box up on a TV-tray next to the table when I am arting--LOL!
So...getting all prepared for November. ;)
Today is a gray, dark, rainy day.
I was up late and slept in.
Prayers for those who need them.
Hope life is treating you well today.
