My Journal Monday — Week 25

I think I am setting a new record.  How close can I get to midnight to post before it is “Tuesday” according to the clock?  I’ve been pretty busy the last week or so–trying to get well…again…and also trying to do a little art.  I had to go out of town most of the day […]

My Journal Monday–Week 23

This week is fairly simple as I am preparing to head out of town for Artfest Rising!!  So excited!  I can hardly wait to get there and get going.  It is going to be a grand time indeed!   Here is what is on my desk to day for My Journal Monday–using another Stencil Girl Products’ […]

My Journal Monday–Week 22

Last week I posted some journal pages that I had created primarily with some of Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray inks and a Stencil Girl Products’ StencilClub (StencilGirl StencilClub) stencil set from November that was designed by Seth Apter : Unfortunately you could not really see one of the spray ink colors in this spread.  It is an iridescent that […]

My Journal Monday–Week 21

This week I had a lot of catching up to do at the house and several things planned away from home.  It’s been tough getting any time to be “arty” the last several days!  This week’s My Journal Monday was mostly playing with some new art supplies and a little letter tracing–a very cathartic activity indeed! 🙂 I […]

My Journal Monday–Week 20 and 29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 27 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face

I am still inspired by Mindy Lacefield’s  the 24 Faces Project on-line class.  I decided that my journal entry from a couple of weeks ago would be a great place for such a simple little face.  I did it in about 10 min this morning before I left for work so it isn’t as good as it probably […]

My Journal Monday–Week 19 and 29 Faces — Blog Challenge — No. 26 & Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Paint Party FridayI’m back on a portrait track again.  I signed up with Mindy Lacefield for her the 24 Faces Project on-line class.  I’m very excited.  She has such a simplistic way of doing her little girl faces–who can resist?  I also signed up for a refresher of sorts, the Refined and Unrefined Face on-line class.  […]

My Journal Monday–Week 18

Last week I posted a spread that was mainly some Payne’s Gray and gesso… I finally started pulling out of my sinus funk a little this weekend and DH took the grandson to some drag races in a nearby town.  I spent most of the morning cleaning up personal email and looking through inspirational art […]

My Journal Monday–Week 17

I’m posting a little later today than I should.  However, I wanted to post something fresh so I had to wait until I had created something “fresh.”  I think I must be in my blue/Payne’s Gray period in my art at the moment.  I keep going back to the Payne’s Gray Golden Acrylic heavy bodied […]

Tangling With Molygon

Over on The Diva’s blog, Laura posted a challenge to create a Zentangle using the newest tangle pattern released: Molygon.  So other people had already uploaded their examples to Laura’s post so I went and checked them out.  They were as unique and varied as the people who had posted them.  Wow.  So much variation on […]

My Journal Monday–Week 15

I have been wanting to try adding some raised texture to my journal pages.  Over on Donna Downey’s Inspiration Wednesday posts, she is “always” adding some type of raised texture with gel medium or modeling paste, etc., and then highlighting it with some Raw Umber glaze to make the texture patterns pop.  Today is the […]
