Collage with TV

Do you cut, glue and draw
while watching TV?  I was watching
"Call the Midwife" on Netflix, and
heard the phrase 'Calypso baby.'
It tickled my it went
into this collage.

I think this is one of my
"use up the rest of that black paint
on the palette" paintings...done in
a Smash Book by K and Co. 
The Smash books have been marked
down and discontinued. Maybe because
they were a bit pricey? Or because 
people were making their own
'Junk Journals'?  But I have several
left in my stash! 

Have you put anything 
in an Art Journal today?


  1. I love your calypso baby collage and the face is great - wow.. just a rest of black paint?!
    I watch "Call the Midwife" just now on Netflix as well , and yes one can do even collages in bed while watching "Call the Midwife" - lol. I did several background collages in my journals in this!
    Today - no art(journaling) yet--- just boring household !
    Happy weekend

  2. Your collage is wonderful, the doodles bring all the pieces together beautifully! Wow, your painting is amazing - I'm in awe of the beauty you have created with just black paint :-). I've had loads of fun today, I've published a jounral page on my blog and also had time to created another in my book:-). Wishing you a great weekend! J :-)

  3. I spent the past two days out of town with my friend Kathy, so I've been MIA. I just got home and rushed over to see your latest artistic beauty.

    I'm in awe of your collage page. I can't seem to concentrate on TV and cut. I stand to make art, so TV and art are pretty much out of the question for me. But I really LOVE what you have done with your beautiful face and the lovely collage.

    I never got into the Smash books, because I like to make books, but don't like to write in them. I suspect I'm a mess when it comes to that. Hope you are enjoying your tv and art time. I'm off to bed shortly, since I don't sleep well at others' houses.

  4. I have one of those Smash books. One of these days I will pull it back out and do some more journaling in. Your pages are wonderful. I always lvoe your drawing but fun to see some collage! Love it. Hugs-Erika

  5. This is fabulous and I love the reason behind it! I seem to be missing this series of Call The Midwife - I will have to look on Catch Up! Yes, I often sit and cut out or doodle while watching TV! Maybe I will make a collage page this evening! Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Hugs, Chrisx
