Week 2 & 3 Art Journal attempts

Welcome,I started my art journal a little late.  So, I have been catching up.  Week 2's question is "I am..."  I tried my hand at decoupage.  I used words cut out of magazines. I used words that I felt described me and a couple of words that I wanted to describe me.  As usual, it didn't go like I planned it. I'll have to think about how to improve it.  If I figure something out then I will post another picture.

Week 3's question was "Do you believe in fairies?  So I went to the internet to find pictures of fairies and came across this 1970's looking fairy.  So I decided I was going to color it with my crayons.  But of course, I couldn't find my crayons.  So I used my chalks from scrapbooking.  I think she turned out great.  I also planned on writing the words with a glitter pen but it came out goopy so I used my silver pen over regular black ink.  Since the glitter pen didn't work, and I wanted glitter on it, I put glitter on the wings instead. 

On the stitching frontier, I finished Monster on the Lizzie Kate Boo Club.  I have also added the other ear to the Quaker bat.  I will wait a little longer before I post pictures because it takes so long to load the pictures.

The weekend is coming up and I can't wait to do Painting with a Twist.  I am ready to try something new.  I hope it turns out ok.  But if my art is ugly, that is okay because I tried.  At least, I will enjoy spending time with my sisters and our friends.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I need to go stitch.  Starting Monday I will be back on the grad student wheel.  I WILL finish this year!

Thanks again,
