Yes, that’s right. I will spoil you this week.
(Or ‘overload’ you, if you prefer to call it that 😉 )
As you noticed, this is a MONDAY post.
And there will be a WEDNESDAY post and
a FRIDAY- (OR-SATURDAY) post as well!
Why is that, you say?
Well, for one: I was very productive last weekend and
two: there is some work that can’t be showed before a certain date.
I won’t write a long post today, ’cause we have trouble with
the Internet access lately.
My ‘private expert’ spend last weekend figuring out what was wrong,
experimenting and re-setting (and swearing… that too!)
He thinks there’s something wrong with the modem, and he hopes to
get it fixed real soon. In the meantime, I create.
I can’t visit all your blogs as I used too, and I’m sorry that you didn’t
get much comments from me in the past days…
I’m online now, and I just hope this thing let me publish this blogpost!
So lets not make him work too hard (yes, ‘him’. Computers are male!
Rational – thinking in ‘one’s and zero’s’ *teehee*)
Here’s what I have to show:

The Chronicles of Marit
Last week was filled with art journals, paint, crayons and embossing powder
(once I figured out how Tim Holtz’ “Distress embossing powder” worked,
I became hooked! I want more cans/colours now!)
The small strips with beautiful collages on the right are little business cards
that came with the goodies that Terri send me.
Here’s a page that I still don’t know what to think of it.
Is it good? Is it bad? Is it finished?
I throw it online here anyway…
Artistic temperament sometimes seems a battleground, a dark angel
of destruction and a bright angel of creativity wrestling ~ Madeleine L’Engle ~
I worked in my big art journal this weekend, you know – the 9.8 x 13.7 inch
journal my son gave to me. I’m in love with the structure of the paper, look
at how it shows when I use my watercolour pastels on it!!! Even the layer
of gesso won’t take away the structure. No doubt, you will see more ‘big pages’
coming this week – I just can’t take my hands off of this journal!
The image is cut out of a ‘National Geographic’ – as are the alpha’s.
I have a big pile of old NG’s, a treasure I got from my aunt.
Every art journal artist should have a stack of magazines (and an aunt!)
In the time I wrote this post, I had to stop five times because there was
no Internet access… I’m going to hit the publish button and get off of here…
there’s a big table downstairs waiting for me to work on!
I am going to roll my little drawer next to it, and hit the journaling road!
See you on Wednesday!
