Journal Prompt #42

The journal prompt this week was to create a page with leaves.  Nina demonstrated creating a page doing leaf rubbings.  Leaf rubbings are great but I didn't want to copy her.  I drew and coloured this leaf and added a watercolour background.  The quote I used says 'How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude.'  Emily Dickinson

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am just getting started on decorating my Crazy Quilt journal project for October.  I painted the laces to go with this block.  I used my Inktense blocks and am very pleased with the way they worked.Still, lots to do but if I make a concentrated effort it may get done before the end of the month.

'Sinchie' Guild Challenge

Last year the Grand Guild of Fibre artist did a two colour six inch square challenge called 'Sinchies'.  We all really enjoyed it and our display at the end of the year was fabulous.  We decided to do the challenge again this year but with only one colour.  We are allowed to add black or white to the square though.  I am not loving the challenge this year.  One colour just isn't inspiring me.  I like this sinchie better than the one I created last month but it is only okay.

Journal Week #41

The challenge this week was to paint with Q-tips.  Fun!  My butterfly turned out a bit wonky but I love this page.  The quote I used says 'Joy comes not through possession or ownership but through a wise and lovely heart.'  Buddha

Work in Progress Wednesday

I treated this crazy quilt block as my bead journal for this month.  I had a lot of fun creating this basket of flowers.  I used beads, buttons, ribbons and lace to make the flowers.  What a happy block!

I heart Macro

I find beauty in the most unlikely places.  An auto wrecking yard is a wonderful playground for me and my macro lens.  Rust and peeling paint create wonderful abstract photos.  This photo and the one I posted last Monday were taken at a wrecker not far from here.
