Art Journaling Monday!

Welcome back to Art Journaling Monday!

While I was in Cleveland last week, I finally made it to see the giant FREE stamp for myself! It did not disappoint.

Meanwhile, in the Public Square…


Mayhem, thinking deep and apparently vaguely troubling thoughts with the assistance of her tail. And her box. Of course.

That week Cleveland ate linkity

It’s been a long week already, starting with another trip to Cleveland for work. Our flight was delayed a few hours, so we ended up getting to the hotel at 1:30 am Monday morning… Then a few hours later, as I was getting ready for the day, there was a (non-fatal) shooting on the street between the hotel and our office! 😮

I made an art journal page in my hotel room Tuesday evening to commemorate the trip… I never got to see the world’s largest rubber stamp sculpture, although I really wanted to. At least I saw the largest outdoor chandelier in the world last fall

Better luck next week, linkity!

I was in Boulder, Colorado, Monday – Wednesday for work and then work ate my linkity time, too. D’oh.

Here’s the only picture I took in Boulder:

Meanwhile, the catsitter was taking some very mysterious pictures – I am not completely sure which cat this is! :O

*TOO CLOSE TOO CLOSE TOO CLOSE*

Have a safe holiday weekend to everyone in the US! (And Happy Canada Day to our northern neighbors!)

The Codex Leicester instead of the Misadventures

Once again got busy doing stuff today and ran out of time for the Misadventures. Whoops. 🙂 (And also once again forgot to schedule the post before publishing. D’oh!)

So, instead I’ll show you the pages from one of my art journals about seeing Leonardo da Vinci, The Codex Leicester, and the Creative Mind at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts on August 14. Collaged my ephemera from the event, the article in my neighborhood newspaper (without which I would never have heard about the exhibit), and some relevant images from an old encyclopedia and an old dictionary. I wrote a bit about seeing the exhibit with the tiny amount of space I had left, then used a gold colored pencil throughout to unify everything.

If you are anywhere near Minneapolis, I highly recommend that you visit this exhibit before it closes on August 30!
