I bought myself the gift of Red Velvet Art's Art Journal All Year E-Course in an effort to be more artsy. So far I've discovered that I really enjoy painting pictures I've torn out of books. It feels naughty to destroy a book! Luckily, the thrift store offers many choice books at a price that makes me A-OK with the destruction. Anywho. Here's the first page of my art journal.
Making this page was so fun that I have to resist the urge to paint on a cat picture for every page.
For my love list I turned this snazzy Anthro girl standing next to some bigass trees into a cute little gnome girl hula hooping in the forrest. Awww.
And here is my into page. Once again I destroyed a book, and I feel zero percent guilty about it because it was the worst romance novel of all time. You guys know I read a lot of that shit, and this might be the first one that I didn't finish. The story sucked. The main character refers to herself in third person, and her name is Glenda. You like Glenda, no? No, as a matter of fact, I do not like Glenda. I also don't like that for several pages I was pretty sure your main man meat was a bad guy out to rape you, but I guess he's not. Whatever.
Sorry about that tangent, but not really. So I was minding my own business making this page when it dawned on me that I put a motherflipping bird on my head. My cat picture has a bird on its head. So the first two pages of my book have bird heads. I am one of the (apparently) few people who don't find the "put a bird on it" thing very funny. Perhaps I haven't given it enough chances. Napoleon Dynamite took me a couple watches to really enjoy. There was a many week gap between creating those pages, and the bird thing was completely unintentional. You like Glenda, no?
Also, I considered not posting this page with a couple personal sentences on it (I have a picture of it without the words). In fact, I went back to delete it from my flickr account, but in the end I kept it up. Just trying to keep it human here, folks. My world isn't all glitter and sunshine, but that's ok.
I have a lot going on today. I need to go see if I can scam some Apple Care on my phone (slash bff), see if I can get my wedding ring made a little smaller, bring some wallets to the Fancy Tiger in Denver, followed by thrifting adventures with Roxann plus corndogs. That's right. Corndogs. Happy Wednesday!
