Remember This - Week 35

Life Book week 28 was back to an assignment from Tam. It was about drawing an eye. This one is almost a copy of the art she made for the week. And i do love it so.

It’s all made with acrylics, pens, watersoluble crayons and some sprays.

I do wish I’d written one big message on the page. Eh, we live we learn.

prompt says: today i know that life is good.

Life Book week 25 was back to an assignment from Effy Wild. Her art was totally different but when I sat down to create, this is what poured out of me. It happens that way sometimes. This lady is made with acrylics. And she is not my favorite but I do like her message:

You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Remember This - Week 33

My July My Mind’s Eye assignment is also May’s One Little Word assignment. I decided to take the wonderful little MME cards and then use their embellishment packs to add a layer and then I painted a bunch on each and then I stamped a bunch.

And a little more paint.

And finally I wrote my journaling and this is what I ended up with.

All the journaling is about what I am thinking about and trying at this moment.

Still can’t get enough of that Gold.

Remember This – Week 33

Life Book week 23 was back to an assignment from Tam. It was about drawing deer. So I took the antlers and put them on my girl. It was also about making patterns.

Since my little girl is quite unusual, I decided the text should say: What makes you different is what makes you special, embrace who you are.

Ain’t that the truth?

Remember This – Week 32

Life Book week twenty was taught by Serena Bridgeman. I loved, loved, loved her lesson. It was so calm and lovely and I really enjoyed it.

But when I sat down to make mine, all I knew was that I didn’t want to copy hers. I just wanted to do something different. I had just finished a month of painting faces so I decided to make a big face and see where it took me.

It took me to this.

The text says: No one can make you feel anything other than what you allow inside.

I love this one. I need to remember it frequently.

And continuing with my gold obsession, I gave her a gold halo. And of course a little bird on her shoulder.

Today I Know – Week 31

This week’s inspiration comes from this pin. I don’t like mine as much. The background is too dark. I used the brush pen and then acrylics. I’ll have to try this one again at some point.

prompt says: today i know that it is ok if

I wrote about not figuring things out and how if i never do, so what?

Remember This - Week 31

Life Book week twenty-one was taught by JenniBellie. As it seems to be the trend lately, my art has nothing to do with what Jenni taught. I loved her lesson but I didn’t want to do it.

So I decided to couple it with my August My Mind’s Eye Assignment. I used the awesome wood paper they have in the Essentials line and I took the girl and journaling idea from Jenni’s lesson.

I painted my girl with acrylics. Painted the edges brown and then the whole background gold. A few lovely MMe embellishments and I was done with what I wanted.

The last touches were adding lines to the background so I could journal all over my page. It’s about remembering that today, this very day, is the most important day.

Something I know but have a hard time remembering.

Yes, still in love with the gold. Look at all that shimmer, how could I not be?
