Another layer experiment page. This one didn't turn out quite, but sometimes things are about the process, not the outcome. This is an old photo of me. One of my sisters says it does not look much like me.
Yesterday was my 32nd birthday. Had a great time :)
I love this page . . . except for my handwriting. I love my cursive scrawl, but whenever I try to write in big bubble letters, I hate it. This page had a lot of layers before it came to the final place.
Sometimes when I see other people's art journals I wonder if they are always are so pretty - because mine aren't. But then, I only show the stuff I really like, not the experiments. So here is an experiment I created with layers of stuff. I was inspired by some of Bridgette's journals and I wondered what would happen if I just kept piling on layers. I'm not sure the outcome is the prettiest or that good, but I do find it interesting.
I also want to apologize to some of the artists on my blog roll that seemed to have dropped off. I wasn't aware that Typepad was only showing 10, so everytime I added one, someone was getting bumped off the bottom. These details get lost when one has a baby. But I finally fixed it!
Goodbye Summer, how little we knew ye (this year).
Usually I look forward to Autumn. October has both our wedding anniversary and my birthday. And then there is Thanksgiving and Christmas to look forward to. I love the crispness of the air, the pretty colored leaves . . .
But this year I am really going to miss summer. We didn't really see summer until the first of July. Usually June is a mixed bag, with some rain and some sun. Mostly this year it was rain, after a long hard winter it seemed like summer was a long time coming.
Kavya is just beginning to walk, taking her first few tentative steps. In a few weeks, I think, she will be walking. And then it will be mostly raining. I'd love for her to be tottering around in soft grass and there is another reason I will miss summer.
This is the last page in my art journal - tho I'm not done with that journal yet because I skip around and do pages in sections as I feel like it. Seems fitting for this goodbye to summer entry tho!
