Playing W/ Faces

DLP wk 35 add a face - i become frustrated sketching/drawing anything but i thought i would give it a try.  love the blue-haired girl and behind her reveals an inky beatnik type created with Liquitex ink. on the Japanese side is a pic of my son i created using fabric and threadwork turned into a pillow.  just need to fill in each day's activities. pure pleasure working this way - repurposing my art.

and here is my playful beatnik aged of course. lol

Numbers

 DLP Week 34 - pages representing numbers in your week. i am in the process of incorporating class art work in my DLP pages.  my miracle angels, 11.3, 22 and 1996-1996 are from a class with Kate Crane.  She is an excellent teacher.
and i recycled a piece of acetate packaging making it an overlay for my weekly page. you can see what is on the overlay and what is on the weekly page.  love working on th is page. the birdie pics are from various vacas.

DLP Challenge 33

to add a Chinese fortune cookie fortune somewhere. i loved adding the painted 4x4 with brads. used a decorative hole punch on the edges. just enjoyed playing.

its been five years since my diagnosis. God has been so good to me in my healing. sometimes its been challenging (hugging the toilet not so fun) but i did keep right on praying and giving God praise between vomitting.  tough not being able to wear any clothing on my breast/chest area for a while. bleeding, itching, and draining not too fun either.  BUT in the last few weeks i have been able to put clothes on, get outside, walk in evenings with hubby and enjoy life to its fullest.  THANK YOU GOD!

plus today i worked all day in my yard planting flowers, de-weeding flower beds on hands and knees, trimming borders and laying mulch.  it was great feeling the hot sun on my body. i am tired and now off to bed.

Love Sings

my DLP week 31 add pocket. my pocket holds a piece of my grandma's tattered quilt and a 4x4 art card along with a zine from jennibellie. around the page I've added decorated envelope flowers from class with Ro Bruhn and a birdie from Terri Kahr's class. it was a great week visiting sons at the beach and lots of weekend rain. time to rest and snooze.

my paper bag journal i created. the pages and flipouts are almost complete. added tags and other things inside the bags that i want to keep in one place.  great tut off  youtube

ME time

last week was my b-day and my hubby brought me the most beautiful, vibrant flowers. i so loved the colors of some of them.  the yellows popped and there was a purple that captured my heart.

Mary had a tutorial on how she creates her journals on her blog.  here is my first attempt at a similar page. i really enjoyed Capture the Day. i  am not close to finishing this page.

and here is my Cry Out To God page, this was so much fun. challenge from DLP using receipts. after i put them on the left side i covered them all over with clear Scotch shipping tape  with butterflies, dragonflies and insects.  love this!! of course this week is not finished yet and is yet to be determined.

the book i decided on for creating my journal was Mary Engelbrecht's ME book.  of course for years now the initials ME mean Jesus in the Word of God.  feel its ME time for now in my life.
