Good Day, Sunshine!

It's a new, & wonderful, day in the neighborhood ... 2 hours of non-stop journal background creation last night (soon to be posted), followed by 2 hours of self-deejayed dance mania in my studio, 4 Bud Lights down the hatch over that entire duration of time, a long hot shower, & a strong deep sleep.

I'm BAAAACK!!! I caught everyone's karma & hugs (& alcoholic offerings!) & played all musical requests/suggestions when I boogied! I can't say YOU would've laughed, watching me dance, because as it happens I'm pretty fierce when it comes to shaking my groove thing. But I laughed, & Zoe laughed, I grinned, blew kisses, signed imaginary autographs, gave soundbite interviews, waved to fans and the TV cameras ... no, not really. I just danced and danced & sipped my beer & put on the next jam and danced and grinned. Good therapy!! Especially after all of YOU, sharing the love. Yesterday was a bad one, so I really appreciate it! March 16th to 19th: Prompt was to use a stencil ... so I did some various leaves, then stayed with that theme 'new leaves' ... that photo of me (age 24) is one of my favorites because it looks, it actually LOOKS, like I have boobage. March 20th to 22nd: Page layout finished and ready for journaling - I've got a lot on my plate this weekend, so wanted to get ahead on the background. The little figures were drawn for me by my young friend, Florencia (my love, Ciera's BFF, at least when they're together) -- they set the tone for this entire layout - no prompt used here. Note: I covered this page in 2 layers of black acrylic, THEN I laid down the metallic green/blue color. Lesson learned: that metallic 'Halo' paint by Jacquard/Lumiere changes personality depending on the color it's laid over. I smell further experimentation forthcoming in Toni's Art Lab ...
