I tend to work in more than one journal at once. At the moment, I'm working in three different ones. One is for the A Prompt A Day classes (right side in photo), one I pretty much take with me everywhere (middle in photo) and the other I use up the leftover paint that's on my palette to see what I can come up with (left side in photo). I've done some collaging and journaling in that one as well, but not as much as in the others.
Why do I work in more than one journal at a time? Because I can! Seriously, because it's nice to have a couple of journals out on the painting table when working. That way no paint goes to waste. It's great to have a couple of journals when collaging so you can work on one while the adhesive dries in the other. And, being left-handed, I often need to wait for glaze or soufflé pens to dry before I can continue to work on a page. Otherwise I end up with a very dirty hand and smudged writing!!!!
I was planning on doing another Art Drop tonight, but it's windy as all hell and bitter cold so I'm going to do it during daylight hours.
I have the next three days all to myself so can do whatever I want at any time day or night. Woo-Hoo!!!!!!!!!!! I've been watching old movies. First the Ghost and Mrs. Muir with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison. Then Some Like It Hot with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. Both classics and two of my favorite movies of all time.
I've done some window shopping on Amazon. Drooling over books I want but can't afford. I cooked up a nice shrimp, veggie and noodle stir fry for my dinner, then indulged in an ice cream sandwich. After walking the dogs I climbed back into bed to work on my journals, watch some more movies and just enjoy the peace and quiet!!!!
