My most often used techniques:
Drawing, painting and collage.
Above, Sharpie pen drawing from a fashion
magazine, while watching a British murder
mystery on Netflix~ "Midsomer Murders."
Couldn't resist adding that quote to the page!
Sharpie pen, blue watercolor, phone book
pages, and magazine scraps. Click on the

I am faithfully keeping up - barely -
with The Documented Life Project, which
has a new 'prompt' each week. While I
usually get one page done (the tip-in)
for the prompt each week, often
the pages underneath have to wait days or
weeks to get completed. Sometimes they
follow the prompt, but sometimes not.
Above, more faces from Week 35. The
journal also includes 'planner pages' with
my activities and appointments for
that week. I decorate and doodle on
them too, but don't usually show
them in order to maintain privacy-
at least some semblance of it.
Above, from week 33 ~ the prompt was to
use your 'under papers' in your art. Which
meant whatever type of paper you had under
the art work you were creating, that might have
splatters, scrapes, scribbles and drips of paint,
or ink on it. Above, deli paper, painted papers,
watercolor, acrylic, Sharpie & gel pens,
with words from a food packaging carton.
Above, Week 34 prompt of DLP was to include
numbers on your page. I think these collages
ended up being more successful than
the initial tip-in page. (using my grocery list!)
Some unfinished pages...not sure what
more to include, but there will probably be
quotes and doodles involved...

from Children's Book of Knowledge, 1953,
along with decorative tape and notepad paper.
Pumpkins and Fall decorations began
appearing around my house in the
middle of August. My daughter thought
it was a bit premature.

Linking up with Elizabeth's T - Tuesday party,
and showing a 'virtual' coffee mug
from my art journal. Pop over
to T-Tuesday to see what's new...

There may be more Fall arts and crafts to come
here on the blog...what do you think?
