Out of town through June! Starting back up June 1st!

Hey Gals!!! Just a heads up! The art room is done! But I will be out of town through May 16th... I know it's a new month, but if you noticed, I don't have anything planned for May... it was due to the fact I was going to be out of town. So, lets start up again in June !!! Still would like to see some of the work you are doing... are you keeping up? 

Here's how the art room turned out!

Project a space of my own! Being thankful to have a space of my own and giving it some love and enjoying the painting on the walls!

The first stages, we used a blue measuring tape to get a straight line for stripes. Colors grey, pink, and black.

 Began to paint with the grey after we lined the tape up to match the blue

Began painting and having fun listening to the top 40 country station! It looks like a Vicoria's Secret in here, and I love it! For the first time in my life I am being girly about my art room! This transformation will take us a few days. I am sorry, there won't be any posts for a few days from me. As, all of my stuff is packed in moving boxes as we do this so it is protected. But, Here's the prompt for you,

Theme of the month is TEXTURE, so it worked perfectly adding texture and color to my walls, we are doing a faux paint over the pink when it dries. And also the theme of the month is being thankful for humor. my husband and I needed this project together. He and I needed to feel close to each other while doing this. Painting makes us both happy, he paints walls, I paint in journals, canvases, bibles ect.

Let the theme of the week be, take the SIMPLE approach at life. This has been really enjoyable for me and my husband (only if it was "Free!" ) Do something with EASE and make it EASY. Keep it simple stupid. USE THE KISS METHOD... Use the word KISS draw a mouth on  your page, and a thought bubble and remember, no matter what you face, if you will ask your self, the KISS method, you will be amazed at the creative ideas you will have! You can teach yourself simplicity if you really want to learn! BONUS, keep your white space!!! ( see the humor there! :)

A little late with the prompt from the weekend, but here it is! For March 6th

Monday Feb 7th

So sorry guys! Yesterday was a beyond beautiful day here, and Iwas out and about enjoying the day! Hubby and I went and ate crawfish and just enjoyed spring. How about a prompt.... making a spring haiku about how you enjoyed your weekend? Here's an example!

a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.
an English imitation of this.

Here's mine about eating crawfish yesterday and enjoying spring

Crawfish, by the sea
Ettouffee is a favorite dish
With the ere of spring

Hello March and HELLO SPRING!!!!

In March, we will be focusing on being thankful for for things about spring.

Monthly Theme : SPRING! Be thankful for the "Gratitude Garden!"
Arting theme : Stencils
Prompt Response : Thank you for letting me grow in your Gratitude  journey

Today's prompt

Three bonus' if you will,
use a doily
think of a word that reminds you of spring, use it in your art somewhere. I chose nurturing
use stencils!

Some spring time words...

kid (baby goat)
vernal equinox

Use this word, to get you started on being thankful for what it means to be thankful for spring! Gratitude comes in many shapes forms and sizes and yes even in nature! It's very nurturing! How the cold winter, comes on in, and brings new growth after the ice and snow melt, and little daffodils bloom and trees turn green and green grass grows where it once was dead and waiting for spring!

Like if you chose green, use it as a background color, like I did. I also chose blue for my background color, green grass, and blue sky's are signs of spring! :)

Prompt Feb 28th Image Transfer! & My last weeks photo on my art journal page!

How I did my image transfer,
I printed out a photo of one of my favorite singers, on regular paper, not photo paper, then I pasted MATTE MEDIUM on my page, laid the paper of the photo on top, pressed everywhere to make sure the transfer would work, and let it dry for about 30 minutes. It has to be completely dry before you remove it. I removed it with a sponge, just watch out or you will get big gaping holes like I did. But it's a transfer, it's not supposed to be perfect <3 

Here's the outcome with my picture from last week.

This week is simple, take some time doing image transfers of your favorite singers. The results are awesome! And it makes you look like you really can draw them!! Have fun!

No prompt this week!

Hey guys taking this week off!
I live just an hour away from pcola and waiting to hear from a few friends this morning. I just have to say, I watched the Drone video of the tornado damage around Pensacola this morning. Off Scenic Hwy and I-10. Just take a time out today to show gratitude for what you already have, and be thankful and if you can say positive thoughts for this area highly affected by the tornadoes last night. Mobile was spared, hardly any rain where I live.
No prompt today!

Be grateful, for the directions of love you heart pulls you in...

I chose to do a one page spread today. ust got home from a romantic get away. Sitting down to work on this weeks gratitude prompt. Here's the before and after.
Be thankful for love in all directions. Sometimes we proceed things with caution. Sometimes we stop loving things that we once loved, sometimes all green is go and we fall in love with those things again! Be thankful for the directions your heart tells you to go. Remember you think with your mind, but always listen to your heart ♡

Prayer of thanks for today,
Father, when I am in a situation where I'm not sure whether to proceed or not,  help me to hear, Your voice. I thank you that you have a clear direction for my life, and that you will lead me and guide me into your plan for my future. (daily devotional Joyce Meyers!)

Feb 10th Gratitude, finished, with pictures, my word is GRACE.... what word did you feel speaking to you?

February 10th
here's something about gratitude that you have to be thankful for love. As an act of love. Use and receive gratitude, essentially the way you do for loving. Draw or sketch this image in your journal and in one word, describe how you've felt about love and gratitude lately. Using one word only! Write it in the hearts. Enjoy!

Open to how you feel about this image. You can sketch exactly as is, or give it your own twist! Making it your own is that much more fun as an artist.

Here's mine!
Done on the rv with limited supplies! Remember my backgrounds in my gratitude journal are already made, so I just sketched over them or art over them, as we are to be thankful for a journal we already have!

Week of feb 10th, my word is grace. I just finished up tonight. I left my white pen at home. But I have been working on this page all week. I rather like how it turned out! I took before and after pictures, so it really worked out just perfect for me!




Notice how I kept my own style with my girl? I didn't copy the picture at all really. I just used it as a reference and went with it! I drew hearts on the girls, and put GRACE in the hearts and did some daily journal writing about grace and how it's made me grow through love and Gratitude!
