Lyne, here are the poppies you requested. The text didn't transfer very well, I think the book was too old maybe? Otherwise fun! I used a water brush with acrylic paints, looks like watercolor. This is inspired by Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday post on her blog:

new girls

Here are a couple pages I've finished, well they might still get added to.They are both journal pages. I'm looking forward to doing some art today with my artsy friend Lyne. Not sure what we're going to do yet but I know we'll have fun!

Mother's Day

Here is what I've been working on. The blue haired girl is from a face I drew when practicing faces. Her head is kind of shaped weird but oh well.

This next one is inspired by Teesha Moore's style. See link to her website on previous post.


Last night I got inspired by Mixed Media Artist Teesha Moore She definitely has her own style. One of the things I love about her is that she often just writes what's on her mind without censoring. It's kind of like a stream of consciousness. She has lots of journal pages that she's made on her website and you can read them easily. One of them was just talking about the pen she was using to write on that particular page. She left me asking,"Well, what kind of pen is it?" Now I want one. You get the idea. She makes me feel like I should stop worrying so much about WHAT I'm writting and just write something. It doesn't matter. If I really think about it, art journaling is suppossed to show an insight to who you are, let the audience get to know you, the boring, the ugly, and the beautiful. I did put some words to pages recently. I'll post them later. In the meantime, go find some inspiration!

The latest stuff

So my daughter has joined me in my art classes with Suzi Blu. She wanted to take the Mermaid class so we're working on our first Mermaids. I'll post them when we're done. Here are a couple of the things I've been working on. The second girl with the flower in her hair is a journal spread. I need to fix the background, it's not working for me but I think the girl turned out good.
