. . . not just another day, but a boring one. Spent most of the afternoon either going to waiting for or coming from the doctor with my son. Nothing serious, just a regular check-up. But it didn't get arranged until 9 this morning and then it took me an hour to text him and my daughter to give them the heads up since I almost never text and I have an older phone that doesn't make it any easier. (and, my old thumbs don't type that fast - I need all ten fingers). Anyway, by the time I took care of the dogs and showered and got everything ready it seemed the day was gone.
I did finally finish my Collage Play with Crowabout Challenge. Big color change for me and I struggled but it's done and struggling means growing so that's good.
Week 28 Challenge

5 x 7 collage using face, words, egg, and borders from Collage Play with Crowabout (Nancy Baumiller), dress from lisasalteredart.etsy.com, crown from Dover clipart, and wings used with permission from Butterfly Utopia, all reprinted, carefully trimmed, and most hand-colored and arranged on a background of ink drawn elements.
I did spend quite a bit of time looking at other people's work. I didn't comment, just looked and absorbed. I'm still not making what I see in my head or what I intend when I am starting out, but I keep plugging away.
Tomorrow is Friday! That used to be a good thing. Lately it has meant a very busy weekend is coming up. The weekdays are almost more restful. Soccer and friends and shopping errands all have to be attended to.
