“Just Play” Art Journal Page

“Just Play” Art Journal Page

I named this art journal page “Just Play” because that is exactly what I wanted to do…play!  I had a few stressful days and just wanted to relax and have some fun.  I used a few paint colors, a charcoal pencil, my sharpie poster paint pen and a few other things and just went to town.  I love to paint in a sketchy, painty way that would to some people seem “messy”.  But, that’s the fun for me and it keeps me from trying to create “perfect”.  I hope you will take some time to play in your art journal and just take a break from the everyday things in life we have to deal with and escape into your own “mess”. 🙂

You can watch the video process here.

Until next time.

Colorful Tags Using Dried Flowers From Mothers Day

Dried Flower Tags

For Mothers Day I received a beautiful flower arrangement from my son, daughter-n-law and two sweet grandchildren. I hated to see them start dying so I decided to dry a few of the flowers and make something with them so I would have the memory of them as long as they lasted.  They should last for a long time too.  So, I made a paper bag journal and used some of the flowers. Then, I made some tags using almost the rest of them. I set a couple aside to use on a canvas.  I love how the tags came out. They are so sweet and so cute.  And they are fun to make.
