29 Faces Day 1 - Sept 2014

So, here we are.  September is here and I am participating in the 29 Faces challenge this month.  I'm really going to dedicate September to sketching and pushing my characters.  My first sketch is not done...I want to add earrings and shadows before I start painting.  I plan to take it step by step so I don't get overwhelmed and quit early.  Some of my posts maybe small updates or changes to each face so I get my practice in everyday.  My faces will be drawn in this chipboard album.  I have 20 pages left so I hope to have it finished by the end of the month.


I would love to have you along for this journey.  Please follow my blog for daily (fingers-crossed) updates.  Click here is to see my art journal entries!

Friends Mixed Media Card - CMS #67

Good Morning,
I have another DT entry for Color Me Scrappy!  I haven't art journaled in a while and I think I'm having withdrawals.  So, I created a mixed media card for this weeks challenge.  Watercolor paper is my favorite to work on because it's so strong.  I then adhere the paper to a pre-folded card.  I'm pretty sure purple is my favorite color and such is the dominate color on my card.



I would love to know what you have been creating lately so leave me a comment below. 
Please head over to Color Me Scrappy and join us for this color inspiration challenge.

Embrace Life Mixed Media Card - S&P #7

Do you feel like you have embraced your life?  It all sounds so cliche right?  Personally, I feel like embracing life is like chasing down a skunk...once I get close to grab her she sprays poison all over me.  LOL! Well, it's not poison all the time.  Sometimes, we have to put up with the bad in order to reach the good.

I would love to make a living just creating art but I work retail during the day to support myself.  At the end of the day I thankful to have a job.  I'm more thankful for art and feel blessed to be an artist.  I think my freedom of creativity allows me to embrace life.




Here is my DT entry for Scrap & Play.  I went all mixed media with this card.  
Our challenge was the use the mood board as inspiration.  
Please join us over at Scrap & Play for this weeks challenge.

At The Water's Edge

I spent my 4th of July at Canyon Lake watching the waves come in.




I also collected a few things off the shore.
