A confession and some pages

Thank you to everyone who left comments about my day in photos.  But I need to confess ~ I don't usually do the ironing on the day I do the washing.  It can take up to 3 weeks.  But I needed to do it so I could get the photo!!!

On to more crafty items.   I am still working slowly through the Creativity Bootcamp prompts.  Not quite up-to-date but doing much better than with most courses.  Well done me.

Day 7: Hidden
We were asked to journal to empty our minds of the clutter and then to throw the journaling away.  I wrote some of mine on these pages and then covered the page with gesso.  I used water colour paints directly from the tube and used them as I would acrylics.   I put the 'a little bird told me' daily truth onto Safmat and stuck it down.

I also hid a dictionary definition under the flap

Day 8: Woven
I drew the lines with a water colour pencil, coloured in with the Neocolour crayons and then went over each colour with a wet brush.

Day 9: Journaling

Day 10: Mood

Day 11: Adagio
I stuck some music wrapping paper onto the pages and then sprayed with watercolour wash.  I drew the spirals, music notes and words with a Neocolour crayon and painted with water.

You may have noticed there isn't an art page for Day 9.  This is because my idea for 'Bold' involves sticking some chipboard on the page and I won't be able to finish the journaling on the other pages.

Today is Day 12 and the word prompt is 'Fundamental'.  I have no idea what to do.  However it's the last day tomorrow and that prompt is 'Refreshing' and I know exactly what I'm going to do.  Of course it might not get done tomorrow ~ there's a wedding to attend!  Even if it's only via the television.


  1. These pages are all great, but I'm especially drawn to the "adagio" one.

  2. Hi Bernice,
    I love your altered books--I belong to ISABA--and love altering things too!
