Remember This - Week 34

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.

Listen with Intent – Week 35

For this month, I picked “listen socially.” While I am super talkative, being social is not something that comes naturally to me. I much prefer to be alone, doing my own thing. This month is all about getting out there, reach out to some of the people I’ve fallen out of touch with but I still miss and want to reconnect with.

I could no longer find where I got the lettering..

Today I Know – Week 34

This week’s inspiration comes from this pin. I used pastels and gelatos and pen on this page. I like how colorful it is.

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.

Listen with Intent – Week 34

For this week, I picked record. There’s lots of proof that we need to write down our gratitude to remember it. So we need to record the things we’re grateful for. I used to do this but i’ve fallen out of the habit. I need to get back in it. Apparently once a week is the right amount. Not too frequent so as to not take it seriously but frequent enough for it to be meaningful.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

Are you recording your gratitude?

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?

Listen with Intent – Week 33

This week’s photo is blurry for some inexplicable reason. For this week, I picked observe. What’s the best way to show gratitude? One of the important aspects of being grateful is observing your life and noticing the millions of things you have to be grateful for. If I don’t observe, I miss so many of these.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

What would you see in your life if you were observing more closely?

I wrote about learning to love and accept myself.

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.

Listen with Intent - Week 32

For this week, I picked celebrate. What’s the best way to show gratitude? With a celebration of course! Once I am aware of all that I am grateful for, celebrating comes naturally to me. I also want to bring back our weekly celebration parties. I will have to think of a creative way to do that. Let’s see what this week brings..

The lettering I used here comes from a book.

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?
