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 […]

My Journal Monday–Week 14 & Sunday Words

We had a special praise and worship service last night at our church.  It was awesome.  I led a song called Wonder by Bethel Music.  It was pretty good if I do say so myself.  🙂  I am still basking in His Glory this morning and just had to do this simple page as a […]

TGIF!!

I have not been well this week…another round of antibiotic and some extra sleep were necessary parts of my days.  I did almost nothing in my studio this week but I’m finally starting to feel better so I thought I would at least post this.  I found a shadow profile in a magazine that I […]

My Journal Monday–Week 13

Didn’t get to do very much art this weekend.  However, I was able to work on a spread some yesterday.  I recently purchased a set of live workshop videos from the Interweave Store (ClothPaperScissor) and one of them was instructed by Mary Beth Shaw.  She is the lady behind StencilGirl Products and she has some GREAT stencils available along with the […]

My Journal Monday–Week 12

Another week of the new year has passed and it is again time for My Journal Monday.  I actually got to do a little art this weekend.  I was influenced by the Week 2 prompt for Journal52 and also one of the lessons offered during Week 2 of Life Book 2016.  I will be adding journaling and maybe some […]

Yay For Friday!

I am so happy it is Friday!  This means only a few more days of work before my final vacation of the year can begin!  It has been a busy week with all of my normal obligations, my husband being out of town (he’s returning today :-)), the flat tire fiasco from mid-week, Christmas cantatas […]
