Choose Your Own Adventure Challenge- August 2017

I am a patron of Courtney Diaz, AKA Little Raven Ink, on Patreon.  Courtney gives us a journaling challenge each month that she calls, “Choose Your Own Adventure.”  For the month of August, 2017, we had the following prompts:
Medium- WatercolorsColors: Spring Green, Turquoise Blue (Cyan), Golden Yellow

Element- Tree

Word- Serene

I decided to sit on my back patio and paint the woods in our backyard.  The word for the challenge “Serene” prompted me to go to the woods since that is one of the places where I find serenity.  And obviously the element of the challenge was tree, so that made the decision even easier.  You can watch my video HERE.

 I hope you enjoy my take on the Choose Your Own Adventure prompt and if you are not a patron of Courtney’s on Patreon, you have got to check her out!  It is SO worth the money and she is a beautiful soul.  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and remember to keep art in your heart.

Journal Insert Flip Through- Volume 2

I finally finished my Volume 2 Travelers Notebook insert and I filmed a flip through.  You can view it HERE.

I believe that this insert was an Orchid insert that I received in my B6 Sojourner from Rowena.  I really loved how well this paper handled wet media.

I hope you enjoy the video and if you have any questions or want to tell me about the journal inserts and journals that you adore, leave a comment below.

I’m hosting a new class at my studio in Bucyrus, Ohio called Altered Photos.  For more information, check my Class page on my website.
