A few more pages from my latest journal. So far, I have completed the first 11 pages of my book. The 2-page spread with the blue butterfly, took me a couple of hours to complete. I painted the butterfly and added a lot of detail to it. The photo doesn't really do it justice. On the other side of that page, I added several layers, including a sketch of a skeletal view of a spine and lower back, that I drew. Then, I added packing tape and stamped the girl into it for a more interesting page.
Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to share my art and adventures as an administrator with others. Thank you for making the time to view my blog and giving me your input.

Where the fuck have I been?! I have no idea why I haven't posted. Maybe it's because I have been incredibly busy for the last 6 weeks. But, I have been on a mini-vacation for the last 5 days, so now I have no excuse! Although I report back to work tomorrow, I have gotten a lot of rest and had had time to make a lot of art. I have been in love with India and its colors for quite awhile. So, after making a travel journal and field kit for my colleague and friend, Samira, I decided that the next book I made would be for me. Here are some shots of my new book and a peek at some of my journal pages inside. Speaking of India, yesterday I got a chance to buy a few pieces from the Paper Source's new India collection. Since the Paper Source is only a few blocks away from my home, I make it a point of going in there a couple of times a month. A cheap, decadent habit! Yesterday, I got out of there with minimal damage - under $15.00 worth of paper goods! The papers are gorgeous.
