First, I want to jump for joy over the fact that when I got on Blogger this morning I saw that you guys have made me hit 4,000 page views while I was not looking!!! It was 4,046 when I looked at it! You made my day first thing this morning! I am trying to think of a giveaway for when I hit 5,000 and if I don't come up with something soon, I'll run out of time! You all are making this happen REALLY fast, so THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Because I'm scared I'll go to the dentist today and get all drugged up and forget to post, I figured I better do something before I head off for the day... And since I don't have anything finished to share just yet, I thought I'd share a work in progress that I've got going on. This is my paint over collage that we learned about in Book of Days with Effy Wild. I am using it for my next Inner Excavations spread, so instead of a picture from a magazine, the picture I started with is one of me:
|Gratuitous bathroom picture...also, I totally crocheted that cowl!|
And here's what I've got so far:
|My nose is giving me fits...and the hair...I ALWAYS have trouble with hair...|
I really like the face overall! And for some reason, I am LOVING the really strong colors! They make me super happy, and they're not colors I'd pick usually I think...especially that background color...but I like it a lot...
I'm trying to think of some kind of quote or journaling to put in the background...something about being determined maybe...I think the face looks very determined/set on a goal of some kind. So if you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
