3 day weekend

My, my it's been awhile since I've blogged. Oops! I'm on Instagram (@jessicalloughrey) 
now and tend to neglect this poor blog in favor of posting there.

So here's a peek at what I've been up to on this hot 3 day weekend.

Doodlely little drawings in my mini sketchbook.


A family selfie for Maddy, who needs a family pic for preschool.

I Bought a new shirt - clearance rack @ Target, check out the pattern on it!

And some gelli printing. I'm experimenting in black and white for 
Somerset Studio's upcoming black and white theme. 

I also gelli printed this tote bag too. Very excited about this!

And I worked some more on this painting, which still has a ways to go, 
like any thoughts about that big open area on the left?

So that's what I've been up to, how about you?

Journal page

Journal page from today. How I feel everyday! Two children, a house to run and a full time job teaching 4 year olds keeps me from doing this. So I sneak in when I can. Today I popped in every so often to cover the pages of a nice jewelry catalog (nice quality matte paper) with white paint. I would run in, paint the spread, rinse my brush, go back to housework, come back when the paint was dry and do the next spread. Eventually the catalog will be a sketchbook. (When I finish the 2 I am currently working in.) I also did this journal page and while the paint was out, painted over an old painting on canvas board.



Just an FYI, I'm on Instagram now, link is up top.

Journal # 17 Part 1

I recently finished journal #17 and started journal #18. Journal 17 was a very small one, the smallest I've done and 18 is the biggest I've done.

Here they are together for size comparison.


Over the next couple of days I will be showing 17 in its entirety.
