30 Days of Art Journaling

Lately, I haven't been in the mood to think about these prompts.
I'm still keeping track of them but some of them provoke such internal thought that I need time to do them.

So in the mean time 
I've been playing with my art journal, 
simply making backgrounds.

Today in the midst of my play, 
making several backgrounds,
 I made this background and couldn't help but think about 
The Flintstones!

To make this a funnier thought to me
today's prompt (day 16) is 
to create a page about a character from a book, movie or tv
that resonates with you...
someone you relate to, admire, want to be friends with, etc...

Now I can't say that I admire them or
want to be friends with them (well maybe friends), 
I may relate with them diet wise!
I'm Paleo!
No brontosaurus burgers or those huge ribs that never quite fit into the car,
but definitely meats & veggies!

Here is my page...

Yabba dabba doo!

30 Days of Art Journaling

once again, 
I have some catching up to do! 
So I'm going to post a couple days here together

Day #4
Things that make me happy now as well as when I was a child

Strawberry shortcake always topped the list
however I haven't been able to have it in years! 
That changed a couple days ago when I found a recipe for
AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) shortcake!
Oh, what a happy day!!!

Sorry for that little distraction but I was so excited and it tasted so good!

Day #5
(this is just one of our little girls)

She's so cute! 
Comfortably laying her head on the table!

Day #6
A song with personal meaning to you.

This one was a tough one for me!
I love music but I don't really hold one or another as more meaningful to me.
So as days past and I kept trying to figure out a song that I could journal about, 
I went ahead and made a bunch of random background in my journal.

My aha moment came several days later
when I was looking through my journal for something to do,
 I came across this page.
The thought...
"spread your wings and fly"
came to mind when I saw the feathers.
So I got on my computer and googled those words and I came up with this song 
sung by Susan Boyle.

The words in the song are
"Want to spread my wings and fly
Away into the sky
How I dream to be so free
No more sadness..no more pain
No more anger..no more hate
How I dream to have those wings and fly into the sky"

How very pretty!
And so appropriate for so many reasons
not just for me but for so many these days!

Skipping Day #7 for now

This one is Day #8
An early or earliest memory

That's me hiding behind mom's skirt.
I've always been shy 
(hasn't changed)

More to come when I get them uploaded or finished!

I (heart) coffee...

Not Me!

I'm a tea girl!

My daughter, however, is most definitely a coffee girl!

So while browsing through Pinterest 
I found this cute wall hanging and decided I had to make one like it for her dorm room decor.
I also used some inspiration from this art journal page

Here it is.....

She and her roommate love it!

ICAD a day

Today we come to the end of my finished 
ICAD's for the Yellow Daisy ICAD group

Day 16
Prompt - wallpaper
I used some more of my handmade washi tape that I made for 
and laid it like stripes on a wall
(can't say I'd do this to my walls but I'm sure someone would)

Day 17
Prompt - Landscape
I went with the love of Paris
Although I can't say I really love Paris because I've never been there.
I do love this card though

And finally
Day 18
Prompt - Orange
I not only have orange in the background but I also sprayed it with an orangy glimmer.

I'd really love to get the rest finished but who know's how long that will take!
Only 43 days to go.....

Thanks for stopping by!
