I am reading the biography of Jim Henson by Brian Jay Jones and he was such a rock star. I have been watching videos as I go, too. Yesterday was the first Muppet Movie and the day before was Sesame Street. They both brought such vivid, happy, memories to mind and I have loved sharing this with my husband.
Also, I am teaching another Gratitude Workshop this Saturday and I’m playing with photos. I really like how this page came out.
I don’t know if you can tell from the photo, but the texture of the left page is excellent. We participated in the Crop Walk and then had a wine and tapas gathering with friends. I used Mod Podge to attach one of the tissues I had used when painting and it turned out really fun. I separated the tissue into individual layers. The facing page provides a nice contrast, particularly with “Simplify” right there. The picture in the upper right corner is composed of an old clipping from probably The Ladies Home Journal that my Great Aunt Margaret collected. It is matted on a page from my dad’s hymnal. I think I will be using this combination as a metaphor for my mom.
This book has provided some interesting vision titles and images. I thought the Zentangle was a nice complement to the color vision images.
I spent some time after yoga class taking pictures of my yoga teacher. They turned out beautifully and I plan to use them in a variety of creative ways. Some of them we will talk about this coming Saturday in my Gratitude Workshop.
Marq really was amazing at the Fall Music Concert. He accompanied the Bel Canto choir on piano on one song and sang a solo on another. He wrapped up his performances by playing cello with the orchestra. I’m practicing my crazy quilt stitches.
