time for a rhyme

{caution:  you're about to encounter a goofy little rhyme!}

a quick glance at my 2014 DLP journal-book,
made me wonder about the challenge for this week.
so i paid a visit to the Art to the 5th gals for a proper look,
i figured, "hey, it couldn't hurt to just take a peek".

and when i arrived, i discovered the challenge to be all about time,
so i thought and thought about what i could create.
and then i channeled one of my favorite authors of rhyme,
because this new journal page had a pending due date!

and while my journal page is now complete,
my rhyming skills need help, there's no debate.
so, i'm off to grab some chocolate, which you know i will eat….
but being creative in my journal again sure has been great!

{hahaha!  pure, goofy nonsense, but SO much fun to do!! :))}

{this week's DLP challenge is to create a focal point 
using the prompt "time keeps on ticking".
supplies:  strathmore visual journal for mixed media, micron pens,
derwent watercolor pencil, 6B pencil, scrapbook paper, star brad,
sakura white gelly roll pen, vintage tag, cupcake liner for the wings}

from chairs to jars

just when i thought i was completely focused….

and totally immersed in one art fixation….like chairs, for example….

i turned around to discover lots of tiny little jars
had completely taken over my art journal!

happy-distractions can turn into lots of happy-fun!

{these jars were inspired by one of the lessons in danielle donaldson's
supplies:  stillman & birn beta series journal, watercolor, .3 pencil}

celebrate today

sometimes the best way to solve the
"i-don't-know-what-to-draw dilemma"
is to look around and document 
all those things that surround you every day.

some of them might seem a little humdrum,
but it's always great practice and sometimes quite challenging!

i mean, who knew i'd get stuck….and do a lot of erasing!…. 
trying to draw a hairbrush!
(thankfully, i had less trouble drawing the chocolate….
it's a subject i'm very familiar with….heeheehee)

here's to celebrating all the little things….
and a big thank you to danielle donaldson for such great inspiration
through her "storybooks and studious girls" class….i'm having a ball!

{and my celebration continues today, as i've been featured in Dasherie
a beautiful publication devoted to the lettering arts!  
i'm thrilled, honored, and very thankful to be included in the Summer issue,
where so many fabulous artists have had their artwork showcased!
all orders for this gorgeous magazine that are placed today will 
ship tomorrow….all those placed after today will ship the first week 
in August.  you can read more info here!}
