This blog was set up for the spreads that I do in my daily life art journal. It is simply a Mead Composition notebook where most of the pages have been transformed with acrylic paint, rubber stamps, magazine clippings, bits of my calligraphy, and my writing about whatever happened to me that day.

She's a Little Monkey! (July 19-22, 2010)
The left page is soft pastel chalk sprayed with Fixafif. The right page is French Country Yellow & French Vanilla acrylics. I drew the monkey with a black pen and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. The black shadow around her was done with a black Neocolor II which I smudged with my finger. For a touch of whimsey, I glued a couple of paper posies in her hair and added a tiny gemstone to the center.
Blake has accomplished a lot this week. She is becoming as agile as a little monkey. She learned to crawl in her hands and knees instead of just scooting and to pull herself to a standing position in the crib.
