After an extremely busy back-to-school period at work, I finally found some time and energy for art.
You may recall I'm participating in two different collaborative art journal round-robins. I've had Mandy's book for a month, and was supposed to mail it out by September 1st, but I just couldn't get out of my own way.
Finally, here it is, a week late.
Since this is a collaborative project, some of these pages are things I'd consider invitations for my partners to work on. Other pages were already started when I received the book, and I added to them. Mandy chose a 1962 math text book as her journal. You can see equations in the background on most of these pages.
This first one arrived with a painted background and random reptile limb. I added the vacuum cleaner.
Here's a page I started from scratch. The face is "found art" from my blotter paper that I cut out and glued here.
|How well can you compute?|
Lynn made the background on this one:
A simple scrap collage. I suppose it could stand on its own, but additional elements are welcomed and encouraged in this group.
Cracking myself up with this one:
|(the text says "do not bother with names")|
The more I look at this one, the more I like it.
I already have Carroll's journal in my possession, with three weeks to work in it. I feel like the past few days with Mandy's book has built a momentum - perhaps Carroll's will go out in the mail early!
(those of you who know me, can all stop laughing now.)
I don't think I ever posted the work I did in Lynn's book back in July. I'll save that for another day.
