GPP Street Team #43 Text Messaging
I thought I would try to get back to art with this challenge.This month Michele has us working with words from magazines and newspapers and junk mail. I spent the day in bed yesterday cutting out words from magazines. Today I set about gluing it all down. I can't believe how tired just that little bit made me.
First I did a page with black words on a white background. I did not pay any attention to which words I had, I just fit them in the spot I had on the page.
Then I did a page of color words. These were fun to do. I already had 2 pages in a journal primed with black gesso, so I started out with a black background, but you can barely see that. I am not sure how I will add something on top but it was still fun to do. I think it is fun just reading all the phrases and seeing what images pop into my mind from them. To see what others are doing with this challenge, go here.
My recovery is going slow, I had expected that but still some days its really hard to just do nothing. So far I have read 6 books and 3 magazines. Today I am going to have Dave take me to Barnes and Noble to pick up the new Artful Blogger as I need something new and inspiring to look at.
I go to the Doctors on Tuesday, for my post operative check up. I already have gotten the pathology report back and it was good news. I won't have to have anything further done so that is a blessing for sure. I just have to recover from this surgery which will take time and patience. I put up the last section of prayer flags in the garden so all your wishes are flowing all around me.
