Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving Day. Now I'm headed for the kitchen to cook. I'm particularly thankful to have tomorrow off as well.

Life Book 2015 November Lessons
Not done yet, but we had a 30 minute time limit. I need to do more "mark making" and add some sort of focal object.

Making Prints

I spent a good part of the day making prints of some of my journal pages, for a little art/craft sale at the hospital. The organizers of the sale want to feature some of the employees' creative outlets. So I'm going to try to bring some prints, cards, maybe a doll or two, and perhaps doll patterns.

I hope to sell something, because I need to justify buying that expensive printer that uses expensive ink. My pages are all pretty color saturated, so I do go through quite a bit of ink.
I'm also working on a Santa doll to take to the sale. This time I started with Santa's nightshirt to better photograph the steps for a couple of doll makers making some for Christmas. I used some flannel I had on hand (green), so I went to the fabric store yesterday to buy more. Can you believe they only had ONE red plaid that was suitable?

Life Book 2015 October Lessons
Alisa's lesson was about making marks with everyday things. I took it a step farther by creating a mixed media background first, then used many different markers, crayons, etc.
