Creative Journalling Workshop – #1


A couple of pics from my personal journal using prompts during the Creative Journalling Workshop series with Jean E. Tait. Response was good and I had lots of fun co-facilitating with Jean.

DLP – Art Journal Page Week 13


Another mixed media journal page with prompts from Art in the 5th Academy (part of their Documented Life Project series).

Background using inktense blocks; inktense pencils used throughout, along with shimmery calligraphy ink (I love using this ink because it’s permanent once dry).

Week 13

DLP Journal Prompt: Week 9


I’m currently playing catch-up with online journal prompts from Art to the 5th Academy for the Documented Life Project (2015). This is week 9.

Art Challenge: Using at least five layers
Journal Prompt: “Give Me a High Five”

Layers included collage, acrylic paints, intense ink pencils, stamps, stencils, paint splatters, doodles, calligraphy ink (gold – too bad it doesn’t show up in the pic; it’s really sparkly!).


DLP Week 9


Coming or Going?


We live on an acreage, and I delight in discovering the multitude of critters – big and small – that visit us on a regular basis. Maybe not really visiting; after all they do live here. I’m just happy that they come out of hiding once in awhile so I can “meet” them in “person”.

Here’s a fuzzy yellow caterpillar that found its way onto the back porch. No idea what kind of butterfly or moth it will grow up to be (if you have any idea, please feel free to share!). It was on the move, and this is the last of it before it went over the deck railing.

Hello or Goodbye
