Art Journal Peek 4/24/19


Good morning pals!!!  How's it going?  Spring is in full swing here in Iowa, and we are doing a happy dance!!!!  I still needed a hat and gloves while walking the dog this morning, but I can deal.  Ha!!!  Here's a throwback to a journal page I created late last year.  I ended up turning the pattern into scarves!  So. Much. Fun.  Had I to do it over again, I would've selected a larger sized scarf...but it was a trial run, and it turned out great.  Might try some more soon!  The hubby and I had the privilege of traveling to Paris earlier this month...I'm hoping to write a brief (where do I even begin?) post about the inspiration and wonderful memories we gathered there.  But for now, I gotta work.  Arts for Africa at Noelridge Christian Church is this Saturday, and I have a lot to do to be ready for it!!!!
Cheers!!!  -Dori

Art Journal Peek


Good morning friends, and happy March!  Although, it feels like the depth of January here, just sayin'.  My phone says is -7.  Ha!!!  BUT!!!  We will not let it dampen our spirits...spring will come!  We will just keep plodding along....until we are skipping again.  Right?

Here's a quick journal peek.  This is a spread I created LAST January...but realized I didn't share.  
Hopefully the colors and patterns will perk up your Monday morning.  I still love making those weird flowers.  And I love how that face turned out....need to work on more of those.  




Keep smiling!!!!  -Dori
