Art Journal prompt

The prompt was to do a page inspired by a movie.  I chose my favorite scene from The Lord of the Rings.  Eowyn says 'I am no man" and then slays the beast.  I love how powerful she was because she was a woman.  I love being a woman and exploring the power and influence I have because of that.  I have the power to create a peaceful home.  My body can create another human being.   Women are pretty amazing.  My background is pretty busy.  Can't say I care for it all that much.  However, I am using a journal that I had put together a while ago so it will have to do.

I heart Macro

I am the guest at Today's Flowers blog this week!  It is so cool to link up and be a part of what others are doing!  Now that the good weather is upon us I am excited to get outside with my camera.  Well, at least when this week is done.  Quilt festival is always a busy week for me.  Not a whole lot of creating of any sort happens during this week.

Not your typical crazy quilt

This is still very much in progress.  My idea was to do more of a collage style crazy quilt.  I went through a stage not liking it so much.  I am liking it more but I still have some doubts.  The lace and ribbon stitching I have added is pleasing to me.  I will definitely be adding some more ribbon stitching.  I am not sure I will get this done by the end of the month.  The next week and a half is quite busy.  Mostly fun things so that is good!

Journal page

I am using a journal I made from leftovers and scraps.  The background can be a bit busy because of that.  This page I wanted to obliterate some of the background so I painted over it with pink.  The prompt was to use a crown.  I decided to do a page about my blog name.  It just seemed appropriate.  Not exactly great art but I am having a lot of fun with it.

Work in Progress Wednesday


My bead journal for May is complete.  I am quite pleased with it.  Using some paper in it feels good to me.  I made a color copy of it and used that in my paper journal.  I love two for one!  The journal prompt was to use my name.

A couple of journal pages


I joined a journal prompt group.  Not sure why.  I usually don't like them but this one seemed doable.  Turns out that I really like the prompts and they are kind of fun.  Top photo I used a calendar page printed on a transparency.  The prompt was to use a calendar page so I did just that and added a piece of a photo and some colored tape.  All of the backgrounds in this journal are scraps, over sprayed papers etc.

The second photo is for the prompt to use feet in some way on a journal page.  I wasn't terribly excited about this one at first.  But then I thought of shoes and that got me excited!  Love shoes!  Have a massive collection of shoes!  Used to manage a shoe store.  Now I want to do a bunch of journal pages about shoes!
