A journal page coming to life...

dinousaur journal page 01

phase 1; laying down color (acrylic mixed with a medium to thin it) mod-podging Arlin Jack's mug shot in.

phase 2; brainstorming all the characters I could turn Arlin into! As he's obsession for Dinosaurs seems to be growing (still) my pencil went to town creating this little monster.

phase 3; what would my little blue dinosaur be saying...or rather be singing to me?!

&  then I started humming this tune in my head ('cause it's often a melody on repeat round here!)

"d" is for Dinosaur! Can you sing it with me?!

a work in progress (lettering and background have a ways to go)...but I now laugh every time I open my journal...which a lot of you art-festers would be so proud of me- I have about 6 or 7 pages in the works! Yipee, I no longer sit with an intimidating...all white journal in front me, I attribute cracking out of my art funk shell to attending Artfest and being inspired by all of you lovely ladies. I've been spinning ever since I got home, feeling alive wanting to...create, create, create!!!

Easter 2010

....luckily Arlin Jack gets an Easter basket from grandpa Tom and Shelly in California-thank you! (I'm SO bad- I'm doin' the whole Easter egg hunt thing, but totally snoozed on prepping a basket...next year I promise to have my ears and tail in order!

Otis waited anxiously for some animal cookie crumbs to hit the floor...but got no love.

Happy Easter!!!

    I don´t know if this was Arlin Jack´s first egg-hunt, but it sure was my first time, and it was FUN! Even more fun than bubble-wrap :-) Your journal-page is adorable, and I am so glad you got over your white-page-fear! That fear can be totally annoying! Looking forward to seeing more of your creativity-in-action.

    CUTER THAN CUTE journal page (do you think we can feed off this Artfest vibe until next year’s Artfest?!), and the Easter photos are so sweet! I threw together Harper’s basket while she napped. Good thing she doesn’t know how this works yet. :)
