Art Every Day Month - Book of Days Catch up...

The first session of Book of Days 2014 is open for registration, and I'm all signed up!  I can't wait for it to start on January 1st!  In the meantime, I have a lot of catching up to do.  I haven't busted out my acrylic paints since we moved, and it's been a month and a half at least!  I have missed ten lessons in my Book of Days, which means I have a lot of fun ahead of me!  Yeayyy!  My goal is to catch up with all of the current pages before the end of the year.

So, as we continue Art Every Day Month, here's my first one...

Celebrate Life
(shipping tags, masking tape, acrylic paint, gesso, neocolor II crayons, white sharpie paint pen, foam stamps, balzer designs bubble doily stencil)

The idea was to use tags and tape for texture, and I had so much fun doing that.  My first layer was journaling (you can still see it a little bit in the girl's dress).  I've been thinking about how much I used to dance through my day (literally!), and I miss that.  I've gotten too sedentary, and I could feel it when we moved.  The packing and lifting literally wore me out!  Now that I am back to feeling normal again I plan to keep moving - it is a joyful way to celebrate life!
