Happy Thanksgiving and New Must Do Project




OK, here we go. Sorry, I have not been around much, but you all know my tale of woe with my job, so I am NOT going into that.
First I want to say Happy Thanksgiving, and hope you are having a great weekend. I of course ate too much, but it's not over. I will continue today....Hee!
But what I really wanted to tell you is about the project I am now involved in. Go to www.arthousecoop.com and look at the Sketchbook Project. I joined and they sent me this Moleskine Cahier. My theme is as you can see in the pic is: "You stick to me like glue." So now I have until the 4th of Jan to get this completed. It will be included in a library of all of the sketchbooks and will be shown in 2010. Now the only probelem I have is to get it completed. It has a ton of pages as far as I am concerned, but I need to "stick" sorry for the pun, with the theme.
So if you have any suggestions, let me know. I really can't believe I got myself into this when I know I have trouble doing much of anything because of the J O B!!!!

Awesome!
I know you can do it! See if you can find an image of some glue sticks (or scan one of yours-or even a pile of them or something) and make a bunch in different sizes, then glue them to a spread... all over the pages.

How about a spread with couples? They're "stuck like glue"... ; )

How about pictures of a bunch of different types of glue? Like ModPodge, Gel Medium, Elmer's, rubber cement, etc?

Good luck

Lotus gave you some awesome ideas to try out. And remember, journaling is fun and doesn't have to be done all at once. I'd gesso/paint all the pages in one sitting, do some collaging throughout it another time, more collaging and a little pen work another, some lettering and more doodling another...and before you know it, it will be done and perfect! You go, girl.

Oh, and my "laptop table" on the hotel bed? LOL Ingenuity at work...it's a drawer from the dresser that I took out and turned over to use as a laptop table...I also art journal on it, too. (Had to come up with some way to have a "desk" when I travel. lol)

Peace & Much Love,
