Today will be just a few things since I spent the weekend getting loose ends tied up for A Year Of Mary + did some art for me, and I have literally nothing to say except YAY ART OMG SQUEE!

This is my offering for A Year of Mary for the month of April. I am IN LOVE WITh HER soft gaze. She was the exact medicine I needed in this moment. You can make her with me on Patreon. 

Today, I played with some Prima watercolours (Vintage Pastels) on watercolour ground in a Dylusions journal. Then, I brayered gesso. Then I did this:

This little bun bun came to visit and he wants me to go frolic. There was a point *after* I’d inserted that exclamation point that I realized that it would have been really fun to write “Go Frolic Yourself” in honour of May Day, which is coming fast. I might just have to do this again! This got layers of Pebeo iridescent paint, a bit of Tombow marker, white Posca pen, black Sakura Glaze pen, and the bunny was done in Stabilo All (black) and Liquitex Acrylic Ink in Muted Grey.

I took the leftover paints and gesso on my palette and made this super dreamy, soft background in the same journal.

This photo does not do it justice.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, but I am really looking forward to exploring what might be possible!

Here’s the entire spread in the journal on my painty table:


I got to spend some time in Zoom with Sera and GG today and it was such a lovely visit. The flow of laughter between us is a balm on my soul. GG is still training for Journal Jam. He’s going to watch some replays and track them to see he does. I also sent him a list of my favourite supplies so he’ll recognize them when I mention them. He’s nervous but excited! We’ll be Jamming Monday after next. Look for the announcement to go out in The Wilderhood.

That’s it for me, loves. I’m going to eat some broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken and then head off to Azeroth with GG for a while.
