Book of Days this week...

Oh my goodness this week has FLOWN by!  I haven't  blogged my Book of Days pages this week at all, so I have a catch-up post for you!

Here's how Monday's full spread turned out...

Wednesday's Soulistry prompt...
 I didn't do a lot of layers this week.  For some reason I was more in the mood for simple.

Here's an extra page I did on Thursday...
I guess I did use quite a few layers on this one.  Neocolor II crayons mixed with gesso on the bottom. Then stamped the houses (stamp by Claudine Hellmuth). Two of them were stamped on catalog pages, and then cut out and glued on. Then added some layers of pink tissue paper; followed by some stenciling (Jessica Sporn's Hebrew Calligraphy with Hamsa) with pan pastels.  Oh yes, some shiny silver duct tape here and there (thanks Renee!).  A spritz of mist in the top left area.  Then some gesso with my fingers, and journaling on top.  I had a bit of a rough start to my day, and was really appreciating that safe feeling I get from the sanctuary of my home (and everyone in it).


And finally my Multi-Day Spread (MDS) for the week...
 I discovered this thing called "Sketchnoting" this week on pinterest, and I just LOVE it!  Have you heard of it?  It's basically a way to take notes that are very graphic and visual, instead of just writing.  I can see all kinds of uses for it in my journals and I'm so excited!  I did my MDS in a sort of "sketchnoting" style.  I ordered the book on Monday, it arrived on Wednesday, and I read the whole thing on Thursday - HA.  Here's a link to more info if you are interested. They even have a flickr group, and a blog!  How fun!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Hi Michelle! LOVE ALL your pages, but the wolf is my favorite too! In fact, I had to smile because we seem to have used the same quote this past week; "we all shine on". Great minds think alike, yes?... But your work is far more detailed than my page. I was simply, quickly testing out a Martha Stewart punch, while patiently (ha! ha!) waiting for my much needed supply of gesso to come in by mail.. No elaborate painting for me till THAT gets in, I'm afraid. Oh, and I seem to be buying bigger and bigger jars of it now too! (0; Well, hope you're enjoying the weekend! ~tina
