Poem Spread

So, it has taken a while, but I have finished another spread!  It helped that DH was around today to take over dog supervising duties… Love him (both the dog, and the Husband 😉 ), but I am finding it really hard to create with 2 dogs always in my lap, and one chewing on my fingers all the time.  So I am enjoying the art time while I can get it! 😉  (sorry, the picture is a little crooked…)

2013-11-16 17.01.32 AYes, I did write the date as August. Ha ha!  Have no idea what I was thinking.  Changed it to October… Also, this picture is a bit gold-er then the original.  The prompt was “Find a poem and let it inspire your journal page”.  This one spoke to me when I saw it, and it had a simple, elegant feeling to it, and so I tried to mimic that in the spread.

London Bridge is…

…Well, not falling down.  It isn’t even on the page.  But I think everything else it… Here is my (finally) finished London spread.  Amazing how much time and effort a second dog is…

Fall Spread

Okay.  I am much happier with today’s spread.  The them is Fall, and I chose to makes it about some things I love, instead of doing a scene.  This one has a doodle feel to it, and the colors make me happy.  And in true form, I did this one in my journal upside-down.  But it wouldn’t be one of my journals if at least one of my spreads wasn’t upside-down, right? 😉

Bus Spread (Partly Done)

Today was a meh day.  I got a good start on a spread.  They I ruined a spread.  Then I started to make it better.  It is not finished.  It is getting better, but I am still not happy with it.  I am going to let it sit, and I will come back to it… This one is called “Last Day of School”.  On a better note, I got a few backgrounds done, for when I need them later in the month….

Happy Place

Day 3.  My prompt was “Paint or illustrate how you feel when you’re at your favorite place.”  I chose my office as my favorite place, and colored a self-portrait from one of my favorite pictures of myself (and these can be hard to find… 😉 )  It’s not done, it needs some doodling or something to finish it…
