So I have not posted recently. I have been depressed due to my health, my impending weight gain, and the Seasonal Affect Disorder…..Yes I need sunlight, and Spring Fever is getting the best of me. My lack of B-12 did not help matters, don’t forget it’s “Deductible” Time again, so I have been avoiding the doctor. Kroger though, when they can attain B-12 will give the shot for 15 dollars, which is the price of a copay at the doctors after 275.00 up front.
So I have been busy, I didn’t curl up like I often felt like doing, and sleep for 15 hours a day, I went back to Joann Fabric with a book that I made ( a portfolio of sorts) of the things I have painted and drawn, and it looks like I will be teaching there this summer. Not bad I say! On top of that I have been putting together some Journals, and Creating some “different” post bound books, the actually look old and worn, and I even Tea stained the pages, which I have never done before, but found quite decent! Here are some of the photos of my “OLD” looking book, which I have many more in the makings…….
Now I didn’t come up with the Idea, I learned it from “StampinStuff01” and I decided to make a bunch and sell them, They are Post bound, so pages can be removed, added, rearranged, or completely changed! I have also been playing with the Idea of making a line of stencils of just eyes, mouths, and a nose. I have drawn them all, and now just need to try and cut them and see how it goes. If it works the way I want it to, I can even mail them in a birthday card envelope with just a stamp for postage! Here is what I have so far….
I realize that some folks feel overwhelmed by drawing, and maybe they just want an easy way to do a face, which is why the stencils. But they can help to teach the lines of the face features as well with practice.
I will try to post more often, again… I don’t watch much TV anymore, and my whole life seems to be changing again…..I don’t know what kind of wave is coming, so I suppose I am trying to Brace myself, Dig in, and Hang on Tight……Cause Life is one hell of a Roller Coaster Ride!
