I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

altered art journal
This is a thrift store book that I painted with black gesso and embellished to use as my art journal for the new class I am taking. This is very sparkly in real life....but my camera battery was dead earlier today when I had natural light, so it doesn't show here. I have torn out some pages, glued the rest together in clumps of 3 the primed them with white gesso so that they will be ready to go when I get creative! There is journaling homework with this class that I need to do first....so I guess the messy play will have to wait until I discipline myself to do the writing. I tend to be introspective most of the time, but I am hoping that if I take the time to put some thoughts on paper it will help me make sense of them or help me to see how crazy they really are! Either way I am looking forward to making some fun art this summer.
