A pastel morning yesterday.
Okay. Like you don't see enough of Miss Karma--LOL!
Karma being next to me on the loveseat affords me the opportunity to just reach over and pet her. A novelty position--rather than her tucked under my laptop table while I scratch her behind the ear.
What cracks me up is this is a cat who did not like her belly or chest touched, let alone rubbed!
Now she quickly flips her belly out and turns her motor on...begging for a belly rub!
...and listening to every word of my sweet talk.
This is the same cat who threatened to bite me if I touched her stomach! ROFL!
The mysterious Karma mind.
Yes. Been feeling a little guilty (lazy) about doing my simplest version of the SOAR journal...so I drug out my little art journal and worked on a couple more background spreads.
Used a couple of the plastic templates and this one is in walnut...
This one I used a mesh and that sequin remnant stuff (can't remember what they call it).
Used the two reddish mister shades I have.
This one is much pinker but I can't remember now which was which anyways--LOL!
I am starting to make it around the clock a little bit more. Don't know why it is taking so long this time. I'll probably be able to just stay awake until Caroline leaves this afternoon, so I emailed Dagan and Leah to cancel again this week for tonight. :( But, as you can see, Karma and I are okay. Just following that different drummer these days...who happens to be awake all night long, the little drummin' bugger! ;)
Sadly, they're talking more freezing rain today.
I pray everyone is safe out there on the roads.
Which reminds me, when Caroline comes today--if I am up to it--I'm going to ask her to help me bring the acrylics and supplies in from the storage area. Even if I don't see any more of those online classes, I would still like to try a sky now. I also have things I'd like to experiment with in my art journal, too. In most of the youtube videos I watch the people use acrylics. So, if I am not on the verge of passing out standing up... :)
