You are perfect as you are

Here are my most recent art journal pages.  I took a photo of the pages when they were about half-way done to show the progression.  It might be fun to take more photos along the way next time!

Katherine's Altered Book

 We swapped altered books on Sunday and so this month I get to work in Katherine's book.  Her book is a technique book, where she already did a bunch of alterations and people get to add on to them.  I chose some pages where she had glued in extra fold out me even more paper space to decorate and color!

Farmer's Market Flowers

Last photo for the day is of the gorgeous flowers that I picked up at the Farmer's Market today.  I also picked up some tasty raspberry-cream cheese strudel from Zingerman's, but can't photograph that because I already ate it! Yum!

More art journaling

Here are some art journal pages that I never shared.  These pages were all about me just playing around and exploring with some new techniques.

Tiny Accordian Art Journal

I feel like I'm returning to my blog with a vengeance after having missing it for about a month!  To catch are some photos of the teeny-tiny accordian journal that I was working in.  Some pages I like more or less than others, but what I really like is the idea of daily practice (even though it's been many days since I've worked on it....)

Aging with Attitude--Altered Book

Tomorrow our Altered Book Round Robin is meeting to trade books.  This month I worked on Merrill's "Aging with Attitude" book!  I was so excited about the theme but waited until the very last day (today) to actually work in it.  It's just been a busy month for teachers.  I'm glad that I have this monthly motivation to get me creating.  I think the pages look somewhat better in real life, but here's the photo anyways.

Classroom Blog

I've changed my mind about my classroom blog again.  Rather than starting a brand new one, I decided to add the teacher blog to my current classroom website and here it is:
There's not much on it yet, but I'm hoping to add more creative classroom ideas to it soon!

Random photo snapshot

I was lounging on the couch and playing with my iphone (probably checking newsy and the weather) when I thought that this little glimpse of my life would make a good photo.  It's like journaling about the ordinary things that you'd normally overlook, but that maybe years from now you'll look back on and think--wow that's what a normal day used to look like!
