One way is working on my Art Journal- I need weekends and space to get it done- both space in time and space to set up.
I am now pretty well caught up on it and the class is over! But it has been a fun class despite the fact that I have been chasing my tail with it all.
I have tried most of the techniques that Dina has demonstrated although the sewing one is not going to happen because a) I don't have a sewing machine and b) I don't really own a needle and thread and c) I do not sew ...... so I'll use other techniques to get the desired results in terms of texture on my pages.
I really like how these pages turned out but I don't like the messy one I have done today- it is a tad yuck so I won't show the world all my flaws!
It has been a busy time and going to be busy tonight with the final get together of the "bushfire mob" who organized the successful fund raiser for the victims of the Victorian Bushfires.
The response was great and the letter from the company CEO included some of the following ...
As unbelievable as this is, the latest report from the “Bushfire Mob” about their fundraiser (sponsored by the American Australian Association) for the victims of the Australian Bushfires: USD $16,500 – (that is almost AUD $26,000) and counting…..
What an incredible show of support for this great cause--and what an enjoyable event! For those of you who could not attend, you missed a great time. From our resident Australian rap artist (using Australian words that required translation to us Americans), to a mystery singer, to a sing along, to a horse race, and to all the cajoling for donations that could be squeezed into a few hours, this was a fantastic event.Suffice it to say that we have all taken a big step toward easing the pain and suffering that so many in Australia have been going through.
We had the fund raiser last weekend and it took all week for me to feel a bit rested.
