Playing Catch-Up...

Hey there everyone!  How goes it?  It's going good over here, but I have to admit to being behind on Project Life.  And some of the other projects I have going on. Ha.  I know I get in over my head sometimes, but it just all looks so exciting I have to join in, know what I mean?

Anyhoo, I am having fun playing catch up, and here's what I've got to share...

Mojo Monday #245
I had a lot of fun making this card, and took some liberties with the sketch this time.  Here's the sketch we had to work with...



and here's what I came up with...
 The little bird is from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I couldn't resist adding tiny red shoes with a paint pen.  The "Hello There" sticker is from Amy Tangerine, and the polkadot tape is Smash tape from K & Co.



30 Day Art Journal Challenge...

Prompt 8:
If you were able to design the house of your dreams, what would it look like?  


I put a little twist on it and went with "my dream decor."  I designed a little pull-out, and taped it right into my book...


I put in some of my fave pix from my home decor board on pinterest...

here's the back side...



Prompt 9: If you could scream something at the top of your lungs right now, what would it be?

This was an easy one, because my mother said these words to me the night before she died (unexpectedly); and I think about them every single day... 
 Mom was a wise woman.



Prompt 10:   Today we will make a list of all of the projects we would like to accomplish this summer. 
 
I already have a check-off list of projects I am working on, so I went with a little collage of some of the things I am participating in... 
I made the collage in photoshop.  I pulled the images into iphoto from the internet.  Then, I just opened up a 4x7" blank canvas with a grid in photoshop; and then pulled each of the images over from iphoto.

Also, I found another super-fun looking art journal workshop called The Art Journalista - check it out here...

I know I'm already involved in too much stuff, but I don't know if I can resist!  It looks like so much fun!

Thanks for visiting my friends!  I really appreciate you and hope you are having a fabulous week!
