We are moving fast to the BIG holidays in the U.S. - Turkey Day and Christmas. This year the holidays will be very different! I am interested to see what happens. I am doing a lot of Zoom and MS Teams meetings in my craft room/at home office so I think I am going to get a tall skinny tree to go behind me so things will look more festive. Thanksgiving is going to be very interesting as I am doing Whole30...the turkey will be a go, but I am going to have to bring two stuffing dishes: Sweet Potato Sausage Stuffing and my Mom's old recipe for everyone else. I can see the looks on my family's faces when they come up on the sweet potato stuffing! There are three semi-ealthy eaters that may venture out and try it, but the rest will turn up their noses and say "there she goes making some weird stuff again." I always slip a bunch of cooked yellow squash in my normal stuffing and they never know it. Tee Hee! I am still losing weight a little at a time - down 18.5 pounds since the end of September so I am sticking with it.
Today I have some BAJ pages to share.
Following along with Wendy's **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* prompt, I did another page with birds.This is Psalms 106 which I have avoided for some reason, but it finally spoke to me this week. The background was my attempt to do faux marbling since it is hard to dip a large bible page into a marbling mixture. I did it by mixing some inky water on aluminum foil and plopping it on my page. The page was coated with Gesso first and then another layer. I did one final layer of gesso after my watercolor birds and words were written and it blurred some of my letters. I still like it. I put some stickles rays coming from the word Power - you can barely see them in the picture. I added a sticky note for the verse that talks about God taking note of our pleas.
