EDM #18 challenge-draw what you see out your window...this was a bus ride where the view kept changing, I just put in what I saw when I looked up each time-these were never all together in the same place! It was a very bumpy ride, a bit tricky when drawing and painting! I used the brushes with the reservoirs so I didn't need any water. But I did need paper towels which I forgot!

My grid page following Dawn's recipe, except I had to make fewer boxes, may pages are so narrow! My theme is "my spring garden", although it should be my summer garden, as it was summer by the time I planted it! Perhaps I'll do another one at the end of the summer.

My daughter and I went to a local Craft Fair on Saturday. Beautiful sunny but not-too-hot day. We found a photographer who was absolutely brilliant! He does not use a computer to manipulate his photos, but it sure looks like he does. He's incredible, but we couldn't afford anything of his-too bad!
This was a play we went to. It was very funny, but also very hokey. The children were large puppets that were manipulated by the 3 actors. There were also baby puppets that looked like strange aliens! But it was fun, and that is the reason we go out, after all!
My daughter is back from Halifax. She had a great time! They stayed in residence at Dalhousie University, right downtown, only $60 for two nights for two people -can't get better than that! I love the yoga in the coffee cup -fits my daughter to a 'T"! I used a cheapie plastic stencil to do the dark letters.
The postcard my daughter sent from Halifax-we are big Dim Sum fans, and these are her favourite dumplings! I took the suggestion of someone on one of my Yahoo lists to punch holes, then slit the holes so they would fit over the spiral binding -worked beautifully!
This was a strange day...I had a real feeing of doom and gloom, but i thought it was from something I had done, turned out my co-teacher was in a car accident on the way to work. This is the first time I had put "premonition" feelings down on paper. She wasn't hurt badly, but was out of commission for the next 2 weeks.

I like this page, did all the writing with sparkly gel pens, pretty much the only gel pens I have that actually work. I prepped a few pages with watercolors (just to experiment) and found that the paper got too wet, it took a long time to dry, and it ruined the pictures on the other side, which I had to replace. So I think I'll stick with acrylics.
We went on a house tour in our area, where we get to visit about 8 houses. This was our favourite! Looks kind of boring outside, but it had leopard skin stairs, a piano room jsut big enough to hold a grand piano and not much else, with leopard wallpaper, an incredibly huge bedroom, and so much more! This was a very cool house!
