21 Secrets!!!

Happy Spring (albeit, a tad bit late...) but nonetheless, it was well-worth waiting for :)

I am happy to say that today, April 1, the wonderful Art Journal Online Workshop "21 Secrets" has begun! You can find out about it here! It promises to be a whole lot of fun! I am super-eager to get started :)

Easter was so nice :) Kyle and Jubilee had a blast, and I actually requested off from work on Sunday so I was able to go to church. It as well-worth it! Here are my precious little bunnies ;)

So I was working on an art journal page yesterday, and I thought it would be fun to do some layers. I initially collaged with a bit of papers, then sprayed some inks... it looked awesome! But, alas, I HAD to add some gesso... and I must admit, the page lost some of it's appeal. The gesso mixed with the ink (even though I thought it was dry!) and basically just made a bit of a muddy mess... oh well, I know I can fix it, but still... I hate when you're totally loving a page (or painting) and then you do something to it, and... ugh! Ever happen to you?

Awww your kids look beautiful in their Easter clothes, so sweet!

Have fun with the art journaling course!

I hate when something doesn't turn out right! :(

Sweet photo of the kiddos! I make messes all the time...but often I come up with new designs from them and it becomes a gift. Hope it turns out well!

I muck things up time and time again.
Just part of the creative process I suppose.

Your kidlets are looking so sweet in their Easter outfits.

Aww your little ones are so sweet! Gald you got to go to Church on Sunday. Yes I mess stuff up too, it's all a learning curve x

Lee Pierce said...

Your little one are so sweet in their Easter duds!

Jen, we do not make messes, I call those "variations". That journal entry intrigues me. I want to see :)

Mechelle said...

Whatever I make usually does not turn out the way I envisioned it in my mind when I strted out.

I have recently taken to making a "trial and error" Beta Test one to work out the kinks.

Kyle and Jubilee are so adorable.

Never worked with that medium.

When I have supposedly messed up something in that way, I tell myself it is a lesson to learn not to stay attached to things. Sometimes it works in my head and sometimes not!

I've messed things up many many times, that's why I cheat and work digitally now. ;)
