First we have the 29th which spread on two pages because I had stamped this reaaalllly cool thing with paint, chopped it up and wanted it in there...so there it is LOL
Second, we have the 30th, which was better "said" with photos....playing with the camera is next on my personal agenda (in the midst of like 2309309 other friggin things I have to do in REAL life over the next few months....the camera will be a cake walk in comparison...maybe I can toss in some chemistry and calculus? eeeeeeeeeasy).
Then we have the "first" page, ie. the page right after the cover....title page I guess?
These are more like the introductory pages....the APRIL definition was from a framed thing I had received as a gift many-a-moon-ago, which actually was connected with another name/definition, but I kept the part I liked and used it (reduce/reuse/recycle intact hahahaha)...
and FINALLY....the FINAL page...I am loving this coarse dry brush technique with the acrylics - LOVING it, not to mention the transparency-type butterflies which came on small sticks- from Michaels, they just POP and are perfect for the month, yes?? Yes.of.course!!
OKAY ----- just so you know, the project "technically" isn't over. BECAUSE I did all of the INSIDES Of the journal -- but I actually did NOT do the cover first. THAT is never the case. Ever. In fact, this is the first time I've EVER done something completely backward.
This madness, however, did have a method. I surmised that the reason I may not want to "complete" something, is because I plan too much of it in advance, then the theory or the theme somehow shifts in the middle, so then it doesn't feel like the cover originated it...and I feel discontent with it continuing, so I abandon the project. THIS project is different.
I can only say that I would love for :real life: to mimic THAT particular theme for me ;)
I digress. At some point tomorrow I hope to have the cover finished. Thank you so much to everyone (or Lynn??) that has kept up with my ramblings and random yakking about products or techniques, etc.
This has been a great month!!
