Fill the Pages




The Documented Life Project 2015:
"Life is a book, we fill the pages."
Squares of painted paper cut into
1 3/4" squares and glued to
black card stock. I had plenty of
scraps to choose from!
Most are watercolor and Sharpie
pen, but some are acrylic paint.
(please pardon the shadows...the paper is really cream colored. 
I was having some difficulty getting the page on the scanner properly)



The theme for the week was supposed
to be all about the words...so I did write
some words on a few squares. But for
some reason the painted papers were
what really made me happy, so that's
my story, and I'm sticking to it.




Linking up with the T Tuesday
gang over at Bleubeard & Elizabeth's.
Sharing my drawing of a wonky tea cup and 
having my mocha coffee. (Yes, it's ok
to have a beverage other than tea)
Join us for a beverage of your choice,
a pastry, or maybe even some
creativity!

'Tis the Season~ Art Journal Pages





 " 'Tis the season...to get
caught up in the madness
of buying things."
Watercolor background, stamped
circular designs, chalk pastels applied
around painters' tape used as a mask.

Sometimes I need to remind myself
that this season isn't about all of the
stuff. It should be about time with
those we love. And I probably do
have way too much stuff...




Large lettering drawn through a
stencil, drawings of ornaments placed
within the masked rectangular areas.
Sharpie pen and assorted markers to
add more line and color.
Very 'busy' pages...just like the season!




Sharing a re-post of my wonky
drawing of a snowman mug...
and linking up with 
Bleubeard and Elizabeth for
T Tuesday. Stop by for a 
visit and a warm beverage!
What have you been
doing during this
busy season?

Celestial Collage





When we visit the local
Catholic Church, I admire the
art. The stained glass windows,
sculptures, and paintings are
wonderful.  On our last visit, I
brought home a copy of the
clip art from the order of 
worship booklet. (it's like the
 Church bulletin I am more 
accustomed to) Since angels
 are a favorite subject for me to
draw, I wanted to use the 
rectangular art that I cut from
the booklet, for some art work. 
The larger cherub below the 
Celestial label is my resulting drawing.
The Celestial Seasonings tea
label seemed appropriate...
