Playing in my Art Journals

Collage earlier this week

Collage earlier this week

I haven’t posted here since the first of the month.  So thought I would share a few pages I created in my art journals since then.  As you know collage helps me relax.  We are busy trying to buy a house, which seems to be a take a step forward and wait situation.  I don’t seem to handle the “wait” part very well.  I turned to collage to relax me.

Time just seems to be an issue with this purchase.

We have put an offer in on a house…then waited for them to accept the offer.  They did.  Then we had the house appraised…it appraised for enough to cover the loan.  We had the house inspected and it needs some rather expensive work to be done.  We have sent them a “Request for repairs”, and we now wait to hear if they will make the repairs.  If not, we are backing out of the purchase.  We only have till midnight Friday (tomorrow) for them to say they will make the repairs.  Waiting, waiting, waiting.

So I took out another one of my new home made journals and completed another page.

The potted plants are clipped from a magazine and the fairy is an Amy Brown sticker.  I love Amy Brown.

Trying to keep my mind off things I sketched some faces.  This is one of them…the one I like the best.

Today has been a very unproductive day.  No house work done.  No art done.  That is why I made myself come on here so I could say I did something.  LOL

Hope you guys have a wonderful day full of smiles and laughter.  🙂
