Creative Time is Sparse

Hi all, I hope you had a fantastic July 4th. I was on pins and needles here as we are too dry in my opinion for fireworks and no burning bans were issued. And for some reason, the fireworks last night seemed so much louder than I remember. Is it me or are they making them louder? Anyway, we survived.

I haven't done a whole lot of creative work lately because my other job has been keeping me busy suddenly. But I'm hoping to sneak in some art and creativity here and there.

I have been working on the pine tree quilt. Here it is waiting to be quilted.  

And I also was able to do a bit of painting on this journal page. I recently bought a mixed media journal with a spiral binding and now I have started removing the pages from the binding before working on them. I like the freedom of having a loose page to work on.

This page is layers and layers of acrylic paint with a little charcoal and graphite added to the mix.


  1. I know what you mean about sparse creative time -- love both the page and the quilt!

  2. I can see the depth in your journal page that you achieve with all the layering. Really nice! Love the pine tree quilt as well and it will make a nice pattern.

    Our city is like yours, however they chose to have the fireworks on Sat. and if rain on Sunday. So we had all the neighbors going on and on into the night on the 4th, which made my dogs really nervous. Then we will be going thru the big stuff on Sat. I think every year they seem louder.

  3. I love that page! Great is so vivid. Is it a special kind of sketchbook? I really like the idea of being able to work on the page separately......can you put it back in the book? I like the idea of being able to re-arrange the pages as well.


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
