Second batch of papers

Second batch of papers

Day 6 of my 5-day online class with Carla Sonheim. Well if you count the weekend it’s day 8 of my 5-day class. I believe in getting my money’s worth!

It took me ruining some painted paper to get the second technique figured out,  so I painted an additional batch of junk mail.

Now that I am paying attention I notice the extreme amount of junk mail that comes to this household! Generally we sort the mail over the recycle basket and paper either goes into the ‘burn’ pile or the ‘take to recycling’ pile.  I was actually a little worried when I realized I would need more junk mail…what was I thinking?

Last night I managed to get to the point of getting a set of pages ready to go and tied together for the lessons to come on day-4 of the class.  It took extra time because I was watching Indiana Jones Temple of Doom with the kids for our relax-after-concert-family-night-movie.

It may not look like much now, but wait until I get the drawings done. I am quite sure it will take me more than 2 days to fill in the drawings. This book can be made quite cleverly, a little bit like a puzzle where one page merges into the next.

So stay tuned, but don’t hold your breath…
