It’s safe to say that after seven weeks, I am still absolutely loving this project. Each week is something new and I never thought I would make it this far.
I started out with water colors this week….and the first two pages I painted are just straight up not worth showing anyone. So here is the third one that I tried. I was
reading distracted by an email when I decided on the words. They weren’t even said exactly, but after “practicing” and totally hating it, I decided that I probably just needed to be a little more patient about what I was working on. Ironically, the smudge marks are from me not letting it fully dry before touching it. It kind of makes the page perfect to me now. This one I actually have had made since last week. I have been contemplating the things that really make me happy in life while trying to figure out how much of the time I spend doing those things. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it’s a good start. This is probably my favorite page so far, just because it includes a couple things from the list above and gold, which is quickly becoming my favorite color. This is the first time that I have ever torn pages out of a book and I hated it. It still feels weird, but I did chose a book that I bought for $0.50 and that Kevin has a duplicate of…so that makes it better, right?
