Birthday Journal Page

Two of my granddaughters have just had birthdays. I got a
journal page made for one of them this morning. I made this from various bits of her giftwrap along with a pogo print of the party attendees and finished with a little ink. My granddaughter loves the monkey theme as she is a competitive gymnast.

Mandala Done

Well I made my mandala following the direction of that video I posted here. Now I realize they did it a bit differently. Oh boy, that shows how well I follow instructions! They changed pen color as they went along. I'll have to try that on the next one. This one is made with a Pitt pen and watercolor pencil. It was fun. Have you tried one yet?

Doodle Fun

My daughter and her husband gave me a daily calendar for Christmas. It's a doodling one. Every day there is something drawn or partially drawn and a prompt given for working the page. I figured I'd have fun with doing some VERY quick drawings and then I figured I'd post them for your enjoyment.

Since I can scan four at a time, I guess that's how I'll post them. This is me getting silly! I don't do that often.

Mandala Anyone?

I saw this video on Vicki Holdwick's blog Faint Heart Art . It looked wonderful and I just had to share - even before I tried it myself!

New Journal Cover

I'm taking a class with Mary Ann called Remains of the Day.
We make a journal cover and fill it with papers in her style. It's outside of my box as it is much more free-form than I usually am. Why don't you take a look here for the class as I believe it's ongoing although she'll be on vacation and won't allow more signups till she comes back on the 16th. You will enjoy it so do check it out.

This is my journal cover. I've still got to fill it which I am finally able to do. I wasn't going to prepare any till I finished the cover! The square of lace in the middle is from my wedding veil as it some gauzy fabric just above and to the left of that square as shown in the picture at right.
I added a pink poodle because I love poodles and want a teensy tine pink one someday when all my current fur babies are gone.
Later I'll show the full journal when it's done.
