recent journal pages


It's been a while since I've photographed and shared any of my art journaling pages. Life keeps happening, trips keep popping up, and I think I do more suitcase-packing than anything else.  But today, while sweet little Eliää is having a sick day with a tummy upset, our out-and-about-Oxford plans are on hold.  So I've looked back through my camera roll to find a few photos I'd posted somewhere but not here on my blog. Here's a little recap of pages, some still in progress, with the spring-like colors I'm craving right now:

welcome spring with amy's inspired ideas


What better way to welcome spring than with a fresh new ezine
full of colorful crafty projects?
My delightful friend Amy Powers and her guest artists have compiled a
beautiful burst of spring inspiration
in her latest issue of Inspired Ideas, available now through her blog.

Amy's "Inspired Friends" in this issue include
Kathy Curotto,  Jerusalem Greer,  Cathe Holden,  Jenn McGlon,
Kerrie More,  Ashlee Park,  Lilla Rogers,
Laurie Romanaggi,  Koralee Teichroeb
and Brenda Walton.

Here are just a few teasers of things you can make following directions in each article:







Reviews of several just-published craft books with sample projects add to the fun. 
For the review of Lilla Rogers' book shown in the photo above,
we used a Project Life card layout, 
made with our own whimsically watercolored cards.

We hope you will be inspired!
