You Choose – Week 9

This week’s pick is to being alive. Being brave. Choosing to fly. Being edgy. Being who you are when no one’s watching. Wearing your wings. Spreading them and flying again and again. I wanted to do something different this time. I used more black than I usually would. I have mixed feelings about it. It’s feeling edgy to me. But also not like me. Not my usual soft and happy colors. Sometimes it’s good to try new things.

here is a side look for the shimmer:

You Choose is a project for 2015. You can read more about it here.

    I admire how you put everything out there for the world to see. I like these pages, they speak to me, smiles. I love the wings on the black, would you mind sharing how you got the tone on tone effect? I’ve been art journaling for about 6 weeks & I’m loving everything about it! You are an inspiration, thank you again!

    Hello Karen,

    I read and caught up here, it’s been a busy crazy two weeks here for me and your blog is always a good resting happy place for me afterwards. Thank you for that!!

    I loved reading about the ski trip, poor Nathanial, my one daughter and niece get car sick a lot. We always pack extra clothes and storage bags and wipes for them. Glad you still had fun.

    I love the boys pages above and below, sooooo good seeing their stuff.

    The one above with black is different for you but I do like it and think you did a great job on it. I actually like black with these colors and with pink or with yellow. I want my whole house to be yellow, gray and black, pretty flowers and such not edgy, lol.

    Hope all is going well with you, so good to see your art and read your thoughts.
