I am here!!

Finally, I have a post!! Between spring tennis matches and spring break, I haven't had as much time to work as much as I would like in my art journal. (I did manage to squeeze in Juenelle Jacobson's Art of Spring Class, which I LOVED by the way!!) Things are clearing up and I have SO much more time to devote to my real passion!! Here are a couple of the pages and a project that I have done! I also used a scrap of wood my mom gave me from the farm. 

 This is the scrap of wood!  I covered it in paper and paint.  Then I took it with me to Thursday Fun Day at Altered Angel.   There I stamped it and paper pieced a bunch of little birdhouses.   When I came home I added little embellishments to make it less one dimensional.  I don't know if I am totally done.  I feel like it needs something more between the birdhouses? And ideas?  I am planning on giving it to my mom for mother's day!

This is just a fairy door.  Since I moved my desk to the window to the backyard, I find myself staring at the trees and the fairy door the girls have on the tree out there.  So here is just a quick page.

This is a little piggy I did for the Art of Spring Class.  I adore the watercoloring that Juenelle Jacobson does.  She seriously makes it look so effortless and whimsical.  I just love her teaching and humor!! So much fun!

This is a random page.  I love the idea of a direction sign . . . it just needs something else . . . so really a work in progress!

I saw a picture of bridge like this on pintrest.  Since I was watercoloring for the Spring class I thought I would try to watercolor myself.   I have a LONG way to go!!
