I am in love with matte photo paper( I bought at staples). I have been working on the following images in my first handmade journal. After the art work is finished I find I am at a loss for words. The creating with pens, pencils and paint is what I love. The writing portion I find to be very difficult. Plus I need more time. Once in my studio the hours fly by. Tonight I had to remind myself that the kids were hungry and I had left a huge pile of dirty laundry at the top of the stairs. Actually Pat put a pizza in the oven and it dripped to the bottom and created enough smoke to set of the smoke alarms. The shrill sound of those alarms woke me out of my art stupor.
