Today, after some webby client work, I plan to kick ass on the peice for Angela. I don’t know that it will be done enough to ship before we leave Saturday, but I’m trying!

Sunday, November 7, 2004 – mini notebook cover.

this is the mini composition book I carry around in my purse for jotting down ideas. I decided it needed a cover and I collaged the front and inside covers as well. I’m actually at 497.5 inches, but the meter rounds it up. still didn’t do as much as I wanted today, but I’m pleased with this little ditty.

Saturday, November 6, 2004 – very very busy.

yesterday was a Very Busy Art day.

– I did two more pages of random collage for angela’s peice. I’m not posting that because it’s very similar to those I did on Oct. 27. I have more to do on them, but they’re mostly finished, so they are going into my total inches for the month.
– I worked with the HP Creative Scrapbooking Assistant and clip art for a challenge that’s due this week. That will be finished later today.
– I started cutting up the other collages for Angela’s peice.
– I put a second layer of black gesso on the canvas.
– I did all of my pages for Stamping Book IX for
– I cleaned up the worktable and did some reading on my art lists.

not a whole lot to show for it, but a very productive day anyway. I’ll probably have few things to show for it by the end of today, though.

Friday, November 5, 2004 – black.

I went to Michael’s and bought black gesso and two canvases I thought were on sale. Not on sale, but still was needed, so took it home anyway. While Joan of Arcadia was on, I put one layer of gesso on the 24×36 canvas for my sister. I’m not taking a photo to post here nor am I counting inches toward yet. This is art prep, so it counts toward art_a_day. yay!

It was really fun to spread the gesso over the canvas. I’ve never worked on canvas before and for some reason, i’m not scared, either. I bought a small one, too, to try out another idea I have. yay! I’m getting braver and braver with every day.
