With two weeks left of the school year, I’m impatiently looking forward to having more time to play in the art room, declutter the house (again), and most importantly…not work.
Even working, May was somewhat productive creatively. Here’s my May calendar for The Kathryn Wheel’s Calendar Challenge.
And a couple of pages in my journal…
I had only worked on the background in April and finished the page this month.
This last week, I was luckily (or unluckily for my wallet) introduced to Dylusionals Spray Inks by Ranger. OMG! I am addicted. I made this little tri-fold journal with stencils, Dylusionals, gesso, and a little acrylic paint for accents. I foresee these spray inks in my future.
I haven’t made a card for months. Then in May I was notified that 10 of the colors that I use for card marking are being retired. Of course, I have a new pack of paper in almost every single one of those colors. I spent a weekend hammering out as many cards as I could with some of those colors, just to use them up.
It looks like I’ve got birthday and Christmas gifts covered for the year.
Thursday afternoon, a fire started about 50 miles north of Los Angeles. Luckily, it began in a sparsely populated area and structures were not in any great danger. However, our winds and dry weather have kicked in making fighting it very difficult. This morning we found out it grew from 5,000 acres to 20,000 overnight. We’re in no danger from it, but it is just ominous, even from here.
