Here is a picture of the birthday card I made for hubby this year… I think it looks nicely masculine, but still not being all shades of neutrals…

This year I have been taking a class called When Frogs Sing. I love it! We learn something new every 3 weeks. Lately, I have been posting more of what I have done in the class. This last round we have been learning how to draw, shade and color folk and semi realistic faces. Here are a couple I have done. I call them ‘my 2 blonde girls’ (although, they are really both the same girl. 😉
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…
… Well, maybe not so much a secret, but something I haven’t talked very much about. You see, I have been taking an art journaling class this summer. It is the BOD/BOM class with Effy Wild… and I am enjoying the different techniques she uses (and there are a LOT on every page). There is one of each type of spread per week, for 18 weeks. We are on week 10. But, I have been working on it very slowly. I have been taking a lot of other classes this summer, so this one has been squeezed in. So I have only actually finished 2 spreads. And there is the reason I haven’t talked about it much. But, now that the fall is here and things are calming down, I am hoping to have more time to work on this class… so, here is a look at my first 2 spreads* (more to come in the near future).

So, are you doing any art journaling this weekend?
