Hello. Is anybody still out there?!!…

It’s been a very long time since my last post–almost 15 months, to be exact.  A lot has happened in my life in those 15 months.  An issue at work was finally resolved, new responsibilities in my job due to added regulations that affect my job, the hubby bought us a camper, finally dealing with […]

My Journal Monday — Week 31

To continue on my Floral Delight obsession, I decided to use some of what I have already learned to encourage a friend.  I chose to make a small item of sentiment with some blooms and then I opted to add some greenery for fill.  No.  It isn’t perfect but it looked nice enough in the 4″x6″ […]

More Color Mixing and Floral Painting Fun

As I mentioned on my last post, I have signed up for a new class with Traci Bautista, “FLORAL delight,” and I love it!  I have only been through 2 of the 6 lessons and I have learned a lot already.  One of the things that we have done is actually do some color mixing […]

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

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.  […]

Productivity

This year the ladies over at Art to the 5th are doing something a little different than the last couple of years with their annual planner.  They are actually constructing their own planners with a little help from some existing products and their own imaginations.  I need a planner at work and in life in […]
