FINALS ARE OVER! DONE! YAY!!!!!!!
And on a brighter note than that, while they did close the campus and cancel graduation (which was rescheduled to this weekend,) everything is back open and semi to normal this week. Camp Pendleton saw more than 21,000 acres burned (that’s 18% of the base) and there were quite a few homes lost in this round of fires. The sad part was that some of them were man-made.
Because I was so stressed out about finals last week, I didn’t tangle (boy, should I have) all week. I’m back on my game now, with Laura’s challenge this week of Rain. (I wished for Rain all last week, and here it is finally!) I wanted to try out the Zenstone wash on a black tile, so this seemed like a good opportunity.
I don’t know about you, but I really like it. I put down a cloudy wash of Zenstone, then tangled over it with black Gelly Roll pen. The color spots are General’s Chalk Pastels.
I also did a little tangling over the weekend trying out some map paper I have. I have been using it as wrapping paper, but I wanted to see if it would bleed through at all with a Micron. It didn’t bleed at all. These are air route maps the airline pilots used to get before everything went digital, and I have a stack of them. I didn’t completely tangle this one, but you get the idea. (and Laura, if you see this, that’s Canadian air space!)
Still decompressing from finals, so I will be more active in the coming weeks. Only one class for me over the summer, Spanish 102, and of course, in less than a month now, CZT!
