Sketching on Wood Scraps


I decided to try sketching on some of the wood scraps that find their way onto the loading dock at work.  I love drawing whimsical faces, like the above.  This is my first attempt, and am excited to put her on my wall. 

If I decide I don't like her, I can always use her for kindling during one of our summer fires at the cottage.

Happy Friday!

Sketching like a Mad Woman


I have been sketching like a madwoman lately.  These are all in my 4x4 "The Back Pocket" book.  I have not bee posting, as I have not been in a card making mood.  But I have decided for 2018 to show you all my Random Acts of Krafting.  Feel free to send comments, or simply say hi!  I would love to hear from those of you in blog land.

Happy Friday,

Mixed Media Journal Page

Good Morning :)
 Another page from my 2017 journal. Sketching/doodling and using textured mediums and paint. I added a bit of stitching to the left side too. 

 I named this one "Swim" as the doodle on the right page reminded me of a whale underwater.

Happy Monday!

Art Journaling

Another page in my 2017 art journal. Collage, paint, markers, pencils, pen and ink. 
 My kiddos love blind boxes, so I often use the cardboard and collage them in to my books.
It is a good way of remembering what they were into throughout the year.

If I forget my journal, I tend to grab paper that is laying around. Such as this one.  
Washi tape is fantastic for adhering my scraps into my book.

Happy Tuesday,

2017-Keeping Art Journals

Hello 2017,

Better Late Than Never,

I have decided to start posting again on blogger. I will post about books, art projects, and basic life happenings.

Here I have a page from my Art Journal.  My 2017 work in progress.  I started this one using my Dyan Reaveley Small Creative Journal, and Ranger Dylusion InkSprays. I purchased these supplies from Simon Says Stamp.

Once the ink dried, I sat with the page, and outlined the shapes that I saw with my Sakura Pigma Micron pens.  It ended up being a Rhinoceros.  I still may doodle on it some more, but I currently like the way she looks.

Happy Kreating!

Recycling Envelopes


Just thought to show you what I have been up to.  I have been taking all the used envelopes from work, and sewing them together to make mini books.  I proceed to color and doodle on them.  Using them to journal, and to glue things into them that I can not throw out.  

I can take these mini books anywhere, and doodle on them to keep me busy.  Very handy while waiting on the girls when they are doing their activities.

Happy Friday!

Halloween ATC's part 1

A short and simple post showing 2 ATC cards I made with Eat Cake Graphics stamps

Top Card– 5033-D Bert Batula, 7077-E Skully flowers
Bottom Card 5082-D Crow looking forward

Still loving the small surface area that ATC's provide as creative space.

Now that Halloween is over, how long do you keep your decorations up?

Happy Krafting,
