Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Five! Five things that are rocking my poptarts! Good things. Moving things. Things that restore my faith in humanity, or my faith in myself. Artsy things! Nerdy things! ALL THE LOVELY THINGS!* If you’d like to get Friday Five in your inbox, click here. If you’d like to get all my posts in your inbox, click here.
Once a month in Book Of Days, I do a live video class-ish thing in which we cover whatever is coming up for us. Last month, it was lettering. The month before, it was the Sweet Trash Journal. This month, I am keeping it light with a live ‘gathering’ as opposed to a ‘class’ because I just want to hang out with my Wildlings, decorate the cover of one of my journals, and maybe, if time permits, rebind my incredibly fat MiniMoley journal.
There’s a way to get in on these live video classes that doesn’t require you to be in Book Of Days, though, so I thought I’d let you in on it: Register for any of the classes that are available in my teaching network, including the FREE ones, and you will be added to my “Beloveds” e-list. This is the list I use to announce registration for new classes, but I also use it to send invites to the live classes.
I will be sending out an invite for a free class today at about 2:30 p.m. EST! If you miss the window, no worries. Sign up for a class, and you’ll get the archived recording link on Monday, so you can watch at your leisure.
I highly recommend Book Of Days Boot Camp, since it is a full length workshop with more mixed media instruction than you can shake a stick at. It also comes with alumni status, which means discounts on new sessions of Book Of Days.
Board games over pints. Laughter and friendly competition. Scrabble. SCRABBLE. AMIRITE?
My kid posted this on his Facebook this week and I swooned.
So pretty, right? In case you haven’t met yet, this is my son, Jeremy Stuart. He’s lovely.
I’ve been learning how to incorporate watercolours into my mixed media repertoire lately. I’ve always avoided it because I thought that with my habit of doing a bazillion layers, watercolours would just be too fussy, but I was dead wrong. Adding a quick spray of workable fixative to a dry layer of watercolour works beautifully.
I worked on this through the week:
This spread was recorded as a bonus for my BOD peeps, and they will be getting it some time in April (during our hiatus).
This is both the sweetest and the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen in MY LIFE.
And that’s it for me for this week’s edition of Friday Five! I’ll see you next week.
