BOD pages

I have been working in my new volume for Book of Days.  It is a larger size so I can do larger drawings.  For the month of May I am trying to draw 29 faces and put them in my journal.  It is a busy month with my oldest graduating from high school, but I will do my best.  Also my littlest boy turns 2 on Sunday and my second girl turns 17 later this month.  I'm going to be working on graduation, prom, birthdays, school music programs and all kinds of other family stuff.  Drawing and painting is fun and relaxing for me, even if I'm not very good yet, so I try to keep it up.  Here are the pages that I have in my volume two and some of my faces.
The ATC on this page was given to me by one of my friends in the Book Of Days group.  My word for the year is  Faith, so I designed a spread that highlights some images form my faith.

My first face for the month of May.  
These are element girls.  I have done the first two now, earth and water.   After I get them all done I will add them to my book.
My sister and I made felted wool and alpaca balls yesterday for the dryer.  They are made with natural, undyed wool.  They are supposed to absorb water form the wet clothes and release it gradually as the clothes dry thereby keeping the static in check.  You can also add a drop or two of essential oils for fragrance if you desire.  Next time I do laundry will try them out and see if they really work or not. 

 Have a great weekend.

This is a great challenge to keep practicing. I'm doing it for the same reason. :) You're off to a great start. :)
