Halloween Banner Swap

I'm in a swap with 7 friends.  The banner is 5 x 7 3/4".  I'm not really convinced that I'm finished with it.  I'll play around with it a bit tomorrow.

I'm baaaaaacccccccckkkkkkkkk!

I was away in Delaware for a week with a friend.  No husband or children; just friends.  What a RELAXING week.  Then back home and back to work!!!  I did manage to squeeze in a piece for a swap today.
Now time to go prepare for Irene.  Sheesh!

Stop To Think

I'm trying very hard to continue working in my journals every day.  This page is in my 'thru my eyez' journal.  I swear, I'm feeling more and more like this these days!!!

Totally Modern Mona

This is for a Zetti Mona Lisa swap in one of my art groups:

Trying to Journal Every Day...

Oh, to be a teacher.  As much as I love my job, it is so hard to go back to work.  Especially since the school year was extended by 10 days due to the MASSIVE amount of snowfall we had here in CT.  That meant summer break cut by 2 weeks.  Now I'm not looking for sympathy; however, just remember that my salary does reflect the amount of days that I work...

I am trying to journal every day.  Here are pages from yesterday and this morning.  

That poor heart has a HUGE mistake underneath it.  I had to save the page because it is a part of my 'thru my eyez' journal.

Time to go to the town pool; it's glorious outside!

Yay! Time for art...

I was away for a long weekend with my family (son came up from SC with gf.  He goes to college down there...)  Went to Lake George with my kiddos, husband, bro and sis in laws and my niece and her bf, and rented a speed boat...OMG!  What a GREAT time!  However, no time or place to do any art.  I went thru a bit of withdrawal.  Finished this page today; unfortunately, I forgot what I had originally intended to do on it so I had a bit of a brain fart when working on it.  I hate when I lose my momentum!

Square Peg

In my 'thru my eyez' journal.  Had fun making this!

Art Itinerant Week 3

Week 3's theme was Recycling and since I had craft paper from some package that I received in the past  I used that.  It didn't quite come out the way I envisioned it in my head, but you live and learn, right?
Outlines are too dark and the hearts are getting lost.  At least the message is a good one~LOL!

Plant A Seed

A small page in my scrap journal.  The page is 2.5 x 5.5 inches.  I'm still using the scraps on my work table.  This was made with spray mist, scrap paper, hand made paper, acrylics.
