Second Let It Loose Assignment...

It was really nice to read all the kind comments about the journaling video by Mr. Skousen. I'm so glad you liked it too. I know I am going to be re-watching that one every so often when I want to feel a boost of inspiration.

I finished my second assignment for Marit's "Let It Loose" art journaling class. It was a lot of fun! I am learning more and more all the time to trust my instincts and just play. Here's what I came up with (click on the image to see it larger)...

I used Maya Mist in Lime, Hydrangea and Turquoise; and Glimmer Mist in Jazz Blue and Sea Glass for the background. The hand sillhouette was one of the images given to us by Marit. The rest is various bits of patterned paper and ephemera, and sharpies.

Now it's on to Lesson Three which came out today, er, I guess now I have to say yesterday since it's past midnite - it still feels like Monday to me tho, since I haven't been to bed yet! Anyhoo, I think Lesson Three is going to be even more fun!

Ooh speaking of today - that reminds me... My Studio Calico kit arrives today (Tuesday) - YEAYYY!!! I can't wait to see it! And p.s. I am going to keep the box to make my new Mist Catcher! Thanks to those of you who left that advice in the comments - I'm excited to try it out!

Alrighty then, that's it for today. I will be back tomorrow when I can hopefully share my third Let It Loose Assignment.

How is your week going? Are you feeling creative? What have you been working on? I'd love to hear!

I can always count of your blog to give me a boost of color and inspiration in a positive way!
Thanks for that. :)

That video made me weepy - I can imagine how cool it would be to have grandparents or parents had done that!
