Late Summer Dreams

I love sitting on the beach at the ocean, but it has been years since I've been able to do it. Guess I'll just have to stick to late summer dreams.

Little Party

It's all right. You can say it. I'm nuts. But this little fairy, the hedgehogs and the little poos had a party today.

More Sheep!

"Counting Sheep." Mixed media is so much fun. I painted the background in my art journal. I then cut out the sheep from an empty package of Pampers Wet Wipes. Oh my. I guess they're good for more than just keeping little bums clean!

Little Bo Peep's Sheep

This is the kind of stuff you do when you can't sleep and it's 4:00 in the morning.

Finally Painted Art Journal Cover

I made an art journal out of mixed media paper. It's almost full, so I decided I should do something with the cover. I remembered a technique I learned in a class about painting something so it looks like faux leather. I tried it on the cover, and I love how it looks! :-)

It's about time I get some mixed media work posted here, right? :-)

Art Journal Caravan 2016 Week 31 - Admiration

I  don't usually buy the monthly digital kits for the Art Journal Caravan only because we're usually broke. I did buy this month's kit, though. I loved the colors. All of the digital elements in the collage below are from the kit except for the glitter splatters. They are from a kit by CAH.

I also love peacocks!

Someone is finally swinging on the chandelier!

Oh No. Another Chandelier!

I can't get enough of Sia's song "Chandelier." I don't especially like some of the words, but the music and her singing it are wonderful. Plus, I've always wanted a chandelier. I think it goes back years when I saw the first room a friend of my parents had done in French Provincial. I actually like French Cottage a lot better, and they still use chandeliers in that style. Man. When did I become an Interior Designer? I guess it's just another facet of my insanity! Egads!

Married 36 Years Today - Egads!

Now I feel old! Especially since I'm 10 years older than my wife.

I think I need to think some silly thoughts and forget about age!
