New Journals And A Surprise
I ordered the larger size Venzia Journal after seeing it at Dirty Footprint Studio. Then I signed up for Connie's class on painting the Feminine so I was saving it for that class that starts in January. At Michaels I found the smaller size so I grabbed it right away. This sketchbook is just lovely. I didn't have that much time for art this week so I would go in my art room and just pet the paper, anxiously awaiting some time with it.
My first page in my new Venzia Fabriano Journal. I used watercolor for the background and then I drew doodles over the top and added WC crayons on top. The paper buckled a little at the amount of water I was adding but I just took my iron to it and wala its back to normal.
My friend Amy called and told me she had something I was looking for. She runs a charity thrift store and I always tell her what I am looking for. Sooner or later it seems to show up. Now what could be in this little case.
Well not the vintage typewriter I would like but it will do. It was made in the 60's, and even came with some old paper and a manual. There are a couple cover letters and a resume in the case too. Always makes me wonder about the previous owner. I found out that I can get old ribbons online so I am all set. No I don't plan to write a novel on it. I plan to use it to type up collaged words for my mixed media work.
