Week 23 February – 1 March 2015

Some virus was playing with my nose and throat this week, and I was pretty scared that I will end up with the flu, the horrible flu which almost nobody from the office could avoid. I took some preventive herbal nose and throat spray and it helped. So, yes, I think I am out of it.

I did two line drawings on Wednesday, but did not scan them, so they will have to wait for another post. On Sunday there was again the arty morning: I made a journal page with a pattern from one of those Wednesday drawings. Here it is:

It buckled a bit… And here are some details:

I also recorded the process and the video is here:

Another thing that I did on Sunday morning was my Monthly Journal Page:

I decided to document each month this year, so I write important things that happen, add important photos and list movies that I watched, books I read, and so on. I filmed this one too, but did not have time to edit the video. I will do it tomorrow I think.

And here’s the Monthly Journal Page I did for January:

And, as I already have the photo of this weeks project I am posting it:

I am working on a piece for Life Book 2015, which includes using gold leaf. I first thought I would skip this lesson, but then watched the video on Saturday and I thought I ma do it.. It was fun. I used double sided adhesive sheet, as I did not have any special glue for gold leaf. This worked perfectly – I cut the circles and stuck them on the page and then removed the other protective foil from he adhesive sheet and put the gold leaf on. How cool is that? I just need to do the flowers around them. I think I will use the same dandelion pattern from the Sunday journal…
