I'm Back and Catching Up once again

My life seems to be all about catching-up! Returned from Austin late Sunday night. We celebrated Mitchell's second birthday on Saturday with a big party with friends, then again on Sunday with family.  His actual birthday is May 1. I think he enjoyed himself!

I finished my 30-Day Art Marks Challenge as soon as I returned.

Day 27 - Connected

The background for this page was a gelli-printed scrap and I added yellow watercolor crayon to it. Then I just doodled random connecting triangles with white pen and filled in with black pen.

Day 28 & 29 - Dotted and Inside

For the dotted prompt, I painted the background, added a strip of artist paper and then filled in the page to mimic the paper.  The white pen dots fill the background as well as the red circles.

For "inside" I used a scrap painty paper, drew a feather in the center, than painted the background with gesso. Some of the color from the background shows through. I outlined the feather in black and added details inside with colored pens.

Day 30 - Numbered

This background was a messy paper towel that I glued to the page. Then I used up a very old set of white number rub-ons.

Last page! Finished 30 prompts in 30 days. I loved working in this tiny booklet handmade from lots of scraps. I just wish I hadn't been traveling so much this month because it's more fun to actually create the art each day rather than having to play catch-up.

Doesn't matter that you had to play "catch-up" because each page is the bomb. I especially love the page with the feather. Great job.
