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?
This was one of those projects… I started it around valentines day as a test to play with my new Sew Easy. So the base was pink. And then I went of on a rabbit trail. When I got back around to it, I had to stay within the pink and red (and a little white) theme. This is the result. It’s not bad. Got a little bit of everything on it. I do like the stitching. The bead charm is my favorite though.
This is a colourful page I did a while ago for Carolyn Dube’s Class… waayyy out of my comfort zone, but I enjoyed making this one…
