I am sharing some of my background pages which I really enjoy doing. Some have been made into Artist Trading Cards. Give me some feedback and tell me what you think. I am designing new things daily, so watch for my posts. I would like to see what you are doing.

Altered Journals

Good Morning,
I am happy to say I have been very busy, I am creating some different technique paintings I would like to share with you. Let me know what you think. Then I will share with you the Altered Journals I have been making and have listed on for sale. I have finished my fourth journal and would love to have some constructive criticism. I gave it to my granddaughter for graduation and she just loved it.They are great gifts for the college bound.

Challenges that I didn't get posted

These are 2 challenges I never got around to posting to the web sites. One is for Illustration Friday titled pajamas. The other one was for a challenge of water cans. I have been working very hard on my art though. I am in the middle of five Altered journals. I will be posting a lot of pictures and hope you really enjoy them. If you have any constructive criticism, I would appreciate it.

Color Me Positive

This is going to be my submission for week 14 of Color Me Positive. The quote is "Embrace the Glorious Mess You Are" by Elizabeth Gilbert. It is due Wed. April 14th. This is truly my glorious mess when it comes to drawing women faces. I really have to do a lot of practice.
The other piece is a mixed media page I did for no particular challenge.
Love to hear your comments.

These are several backgrounds I have completed, I like to keep some handy so if a challenge comes in a hurry I have a piece already started. Do any of you do backgrounds in advance, I would like to see them.

This is a couple of pieces I did for the Illustative Friday Challenge. The prompt was mushroom. I have not decided which one I will submit, as you can tell by my posts I go for a long period with out doing any journals and then I will get to it gong ho for awhile. I would like some comments as to which piece I should submit for the challenge. I look forward to seeing other submission.

Well here it is April already and I have just got back to doing pieces for my journals. I was really motivated by my therapist when I showed her a couple of my journals at our last session. She like the ideas so well she said she was going to try to get some of her other clients to try some of this journaling. Many are like me and don"t care to do a writing journal. I will be posting my newest pieces from the last 2 weeks even though I have not used any for challenges.I appreciate your thoughts good or bad as long as the comments aren't cruel, I can handle constructive criticism.
