Collecting and entering great stuff in the journal that I am doing for Richard. This is the cover of some old sheet music which was too cool to pass up. I even remember the song. Richard is too young to remember it. The graphics are right up to date and I love the color, orange and green. You have to love the braking out on the edges, that hand and foot.
This second page was inspired by an old Valentine. Open the lid and there's a Jack in the Box. So I got to doodling clowns. I have three clown patterns for dolls, and I love the quirkie posibilities. On the page to the left there is a train postcard and a penny postcard with a filigree of stamping and drawing to bring it all together. My brother Ross once thought about going to clown school. He has the gift.
These are some of my tools. I carry them around in that red make up bag. It's hard to keep from making that bag too heavy. Inside are colored pencils, fine tipped markers and brush tipped markers, a water color set, and Portfolio Water Based Oil Pastels, plus rubber stamps and a pad.
