The cats ate linkity!

Congrats to Curlyq, who won Immutable by Becky Black!


Reading Update
Journal Spilling: Mixed-Media Techniques for Free Expression by Diana Trout. Very good overview of art journaling techniques, complete with prompts at the end. “Spilling” refers to writing (or creating an art entry) without thinking about it – basically stream-of-consciousness. I liked this book enough that I’ve ordered a used copy for myself.
Painted Pages: Fueling Creativity with Sketchbooks and Mixed Media by Sarah Ahearn Bellemare. This was ok – it focused on creating mixed media works, with a sketchbook being one of the tools to get there. After reading perhaps the first third without any of it resonating with me, I skimmed the rest. I do love how her work looks – it turns out that some pretty journals I just bought had covers with her art on them. 🙂

Pretty sure she’s had that actual thought. 🙂

  1. Hey, I have had that thought, too. I want the fresh air, but I want to be cool.

    Also, the journal spilling thing sounds interesting. Same kind of interesting as the adult coloring books that have become acceptable now. (And that makes me happy. Coloring is fun.)

  2. Bummer about the work. I’m kind of in the same boat. I liked your “too hot” journal entry–the colors were perfect. It has been insane out here, 111 yesterday. It is supposed to be the start of El Nino. Yikes!

    I get May’s point. It would be nice, but I don’t think she understands the electric bill concept.

    Hope your weekend is good!
