Playing Catch up

Hospital Doodles: Ok, so somewhere in between hubby's in surgery and kids having grand babies, I did two little doodles in my journal. They are pretty plain and boring. I'm still not quite sure what I will do with them, if anything. Maybe they will just end up covered up with layer upon layer of goodies. Who knows...

Painted Papers: Next, is a page from my soul journal. It's one of the painted paper prompts Kathryn gave us and it's probably the least of my favorites. First I thought it was the colors I picked. I'm not a big fan of yellow. But there are other yellow projects I've worked on that turned out ok, so maybe it's the boldness of the black ink. Or maybe the actual stamps I picked? Just an over-all combination of them, it just doesn't work for me.

Weave our Dreams: This one I enjoyed doing, but honestly, I didn't totally follow the instructions. The chosen words were supposed to be about our dreams. Again, on a quick stop at the house, before running out the door to the hospital, I grabbed a bunch of scrap paper, my small letter stamps, and a black archival ink, and just started stamping words.

Just words.

Words that just meant something at that moment, or words I thought of a lot, and here is the finished product. Again, I really liked working on this page. It was a good one to work on in the hospital, too, as I could sit there and take my time at weaving the paper and getting them lay in the right order, that I wanted.

And Lastly, a little tiny shot of what I'm working on today.........

Have a great day ladies~!
