Then there is Big Kitty and she's really an old fart (excuse the french! LOL) She's definitely just a couch potato and has the belly to go with it! LOLOL I don't have a pic of her today, but I will definitely get one up so you can see her in ALLLL her glory! We are cat lovers! Can you tell? The guys say an across the pond hello to Oreo today! :)
|Great journal...my own pencils!|
So this is an awesome "coloring notebook!" I started out in the "art world" doing Zentangle and fell upon mixed media through internet searching. So this was something right up my alley. I have posted some of my Zentangle artwork here on my blog before. This little
to the doodle pages and making them come alive! It's great to pass the time while sitting and watching TV or just when you need a break from every day life, de-stressing!
The journal itself is quite sturdy and the pages are an average weight that are archival quality and acid-free, so to me, they take colored pencil well and I would image, crayon or chalk, etc... I am not sure that I would use any sort of wet medium, although they do say that you can, but I think that would defeat the purpose for me for this journal. I like to use this for quiet, non-taxing, journaling. Not that mixed media is taxing, its just a lot more fuss and product which takes a different mind frame for me and I choose to use this journal in a low key, gear down mode.
This page to the right I was working on last night, which I love. I don't claim to be a good colorer, but it's still fun to me and reminds me of times that I used to sit around and color with my daughters. Every once in awhile, my youngest Abigael and I will pull out the old color books and crayons and just sit and color. It's fun. Nothing smells quite like crayons does it? Take that how you will! LOLOL I found this AWESOME picture towards the back of the journal when I was browsing through and it's the next one to do on my list! I love, love jellyfish! They are so ethereal to me and just one of the beautiful creations of the Lord that I wonder what His thought process was when He created them! An amazing creation!
I encourage you to go on over to the ColoringNotebook website and check it out for yourself. It's well worth having in your play stash for those down times! Bring back out the "kid" in you and do a little coloring! :) It may be the coloring book that you DON'T want to share with the kiddos.....sorry, this one is for mom! LOLOL
|My beautiful hackers! xoxo|
