I also bought another art journaling book.. I really don't need more, do I? Art Journal Freedom: How to Journal Creatively With Color & Composition
What happened was that I was trying to find those plastic potty training pants that you put over underwear (for my 3 year old daughter) because we are not having the best luck with potty training. Spring Break is next week for me, so we are going to just put her in underwear all day and see what happens. You would think that these would still be available in stores, but the stores (even Target and Babies R Us) only carry the pull-up diapers (which are basically the same as diapers). She didn't feel "wet" in them and doesn't really care if she goes to the bathroom in them. So, anyways.... I looked online and they had them on Amazon. But, the ones we wanted were "add-on" items which means you *had* to spend a certain amount. So, I was basically forced into buying something for myself, right? Lol. Wish me luck on the potty training thing.
I haven't read too much of the book yet, but I like the information on composition and focal points and so forth. Those ideas are all good for any type of art in general. I like books where the concepts can cross over into other areas.
I am so proud of my 5th and 6th grade students who each carved one or two beautiful rubber stamps. We printed them all on one very large poster board, which is going to be framed and donated to our school auction fundraiser.
I am linking this to Paint Party Friday, Art Journal Every Day and Show and Tell Saturday.
Thanks for reading! Best wishes, Marcia
