Super Powers

On a happy note, I just finished my June journal prompt page.  The prompt was, 'if you had super powers, what would they be?'  Had fun with this; I'm sure you'll be able to relate to my response since I don't know ANYONE who hasn't felt this way before.


In a tough place right now.  Trying to vent through my journal.  It does help...

With Wings all is Possible

I haven't felt much like art with the end of the school year and all that entails, and all the crap that's going on with my offspring.  However, I did drag my bootie down the stairs to the studio and tried to get going.  This is what came out:

I Can Just Spit!

I swear, this town is a horrible place to live.  When we moved back to the east coast from CA we chose to live in CT.  We NEVER realized what a closed-minded, anti-semitic, mayonnaise town we moved to when we first got here.  We have since learned that if you're not from here; if your family did not grow up here; if you don't belong to the same place of worship as everyone else're an outsider, an alien and a threat to their all-white Stepford community.  And the Stepford people have given the administrators in the school district and the police force all the power they need to make outsiders unwelcome.  I really don't want to live here any more.  Especially after what happened to my children this week.  I want to go HOME!

So please understand that my journal page is my way of getting some of these feelings out before they fester inside of me.  If the phrase KISS MY ASS offends you, so sorry.  In the meantime, DH will be looking for a job back in CA.  I need to save my kids from this dreadful place before someone kills them!

Boy, was I in a MOOD!

After a REALLY crappy day, I had to come home and vent.  And since NO ONE here really listens to me anyway, I vented into my journal.  Thank G_d for art!

Masking Tape for Journaling

I wish I could take credit for this idea but I got it from roc and terri and a group I belong to.  I placed masking tape over the page where I didn't want any medium.  It acts as a mask.  I used 2 inch wide tape so I tore the sides to give it a more grungy look.  I spread my 89 cent acrylics along the edges and used ink mists on the rest of the page.  To make the circles I used the top of a prescription bottle and the top of a glue stick.  Once dry, I removed the masking tape and went over some of the paper with punchinella and Staz-On.  Once I journal I'll figure out what I want to do on the 'clean' parts.

and the finished product...
The page is a little bigger than my scanner so a bit of the words are cut off...
