Remember This – Week 37

Life Book week 30 was an assignment from Carissa Paige. It was about doing transfers and since I don’t like those I decided to do rubons instead. I just had fun with this one.

I put some patterned paper down, colored over it and then colored over the whole thing once more. Some lovely rubons and i was done. The journaling says: Life is ephemeral. Capture it. Savor it. Soak it in. Live it.

This week’s inspiration comes from this pin. I used pastels, stickles and pen on this page. I appear to be addicted to stickles lately.

Remember This - Week 36

Life Book week 26 was a bonus from Kate Thompson and week 29 was a bonus from Marieke Blokland and I decided to combine both. I used fun, florescent colors for my background. These were the high flows and they didn’t behave the way I expected but I just went with it.

Then I grew the girl per Kate’s lesson. Though hers was much better, of course.

And finally I wrote “Keep Trying” because I was frustrated with my lack of enough talent to create something I visualize the way I visualize it.

And then I journaled all over.

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.

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?
