2nd watercolor

I knew it needed some work but until I saw the picture I didn't relise how much. I just can't seem to get the nose right, much better than when I first started though. I need to practice more on my blending.. The other picture is a landscape that I was inspired to draw by a beautiful picture my friend Tiffany posted on FB. I have never tried to do this before and surprised myself that it was not bad. but I know I can get much better if I keep practicing it.

My first watercolor and a journal page in progress

I still have some blending to do on my watercolor and my journal page still has a lot left to do but I wanted to share them.

My CD rack

I picked this CD rack up a yard sale a while back and my husband cut me some shelfs for it yesterday. So this is what I did with it. I need to get some more CD holders to put the rest of my stamps in.

going ons in my life

I am working on a poster for my work so I haven't had much time to work on my own stuff. I did work on my bird lady page yesterday but when I glued the feathers on with Mod Podge it didn't look good so I have to find some  more feathers and I am going to try hot glue. I am also working on my first Zentangle while watching tv at night with my dh. It is really fun and relaxing. I have seen some really beautiful ones out there. I will post pics when I am done.

pictures of one of my art journals in progress

None of them are done yet.
The top one is going to be my bird page. The 3rd one down is my favorite so far.

My day

Well I had a busy day today. My oldest daughter came by this morning with my 2 grandaughters and my other daughters son who I am keeping for the night because his mommy had to work tonight and has an early morning doctors appointment. And then my dear in-laws came over at 2 for cake and coffee. Then my grandson and I worked on my art journals for a little while.  He's 3 years old and a natural crafter. I got the background pages ready to glue down my bird lady. Later tonight I plan on uploading the pages I've done. Thank you to everyone who has been leaving comments, it means a lot to me. I am excited to be up to 7 followers now too.

My day

I have been having fun art journaling all day today with my ds Susan. This is her first time doing it and says she is a little out of her comfort zone but I think she is enjoying it. I will have lots of pictures to share in the next few days.
