Carol came over this afternoon and we had a wonderful time arting!! We enjoyed each others company, a great bottle of wine, some delicious Italian cheeses and salamis and we threw some paint around. Even though Carol just started her altered book in February - she has already picked out her next book to alter because she only has a few spreads left!!
Yup, she's hooked ;)
We also started planning our next trip to Italy - it is almost as fun to plan as it is to go.
I started a new journal today - totally spontaneous. I have always wanted to keep track of the wines we try and how we liked them and where we bought them. My organizational skills are sadly lacking - I actually have a bought wine journal somewhere but I never used it. heh. Go figure. Sometimes I buy wine because I like the label - yeah yeah - I know a pretty label is not exactly a good sign of a good wine. I always intended to peel a pretty label off and save it. heh. never happened. Until today....I had a book all glued and Gessoed - just waiting to be prettied up. I did a bit of googling and figured out how to get the label off (this one wasn't purchased for the pretty label - it was purchased for it's age) and made a background for it. A little journaling about the wine and I was smiling ear to ear that I finally had a system that feels like ME - an art wine journal!!
Now I am excited to paint the cover of this journal - it needs to be a fun cover :)
I hope you had a great weekend!!
