beyond the fartherest star…

“Yet even beyond the fartherest star God knows the way”

-from the Little Golden Book about God

I used this quote on a journal spread I did for Andria‘s journal.  We exchanged journals (from the round robin group) again because we discovered we had gotten each other’s journals once instead of twice.  I have already gotten my journal back from her.  I finished her last spread yesterday.  This spread has about four layers ….it wasn’t coming together for me.  I finally got fearless and started spreading paint and gluing down magazine collage pieces. I wish I hadn’t put the doodles on it….too late now.  Here it is:




This next spread features a stencil by Christy Tomlinson and some of my mark making.  I didn’t write the quote correctly…I hate it when that happens 😦



Here are some snippets from my sketchbook:






My hubby loved the comments about the frame he painted (see previous post).   Art is our main job now that we have retired 🙂  We don’t sell any of our work, it’s mainly for our own enjoyment.  I have an Etsy shop but haven’t put any items in it (yet).  Have an art-filled week!

    I just get back and look at all that I’ve missed! A lot to see… and it all looks good, as always, Mary!
