My early mornings include catch up in my Documented LIfe Project Journal. I was hugely behind due to over committment and illness but I used my early mornings to catch up.  Was steaming ahead, Still have about 6 to go.  Will she make it?  Who knows...I'll try.

Making Art

I am in recovery mode after being fairly ill. One of the medications I am taking is causing me to suffer from insomnia, and as I am getting up by 3 am most morning, I am putting that solitary time to good use catching up on my art projects in which I fell behind.  The two projects I had hoped to finish were my Journal 52 and my Documented LIfe Project.  I did finish J52, made a cover and felt very good about it all.  I was steaming through DLP, counting how many I still had to go and blow me if they didn't publish a week 53 prompt.  Oh no!! Another catch up :).

J52 Prompts.
 Week 46  Use a napkin.
 Week 47  Wise words
 Week 49  Add a doodle.
 Week 48  Build a snowman.
 Week 43 Use a stencil.
 Week 50  Sparkle and shine.
 Week 51  Put a song on it.
 Week 52.  Circle.  From beginning to enad 2014 has turned its circle to Completion.  What an adventure!  Let's go 2015!
 Completed Journal.
Cover,  Music shhet gelli printed and doodled.  Unfortunately Igave the cover a protective coat of clear gesso and caused my doodles to run.  Too bad...I still love it.

Recent Art Adventures.

Currently after a long break I am making art again.  I am so happy to be back at it.  Illness does make life difficult.

As I am a creature who loves to do prompts....(no imagination)...this year I undertook to play along with Documented Life Project , Journal 52 with the lovely Chelle Stein  with the amazing Tammy Garcia.

As well I like to do swaps.  I have just participated with a swap with Hanna at 
and with Shannon Ganshorn musingsonrealities
So now I would love to share some of my most recent work with you.  Anybody there?? :)

ihanna swap.  I make 10 post cards, enrol and Hanna sends me 10 international addresses.  I send mine off to four corners of the world and sit back and wait for the postman call with his loads of gorgeousness!

My Cards for the swap:

From Lynne, Pheonix, Az.

And just look at this stunner from Tanya....whoops....I have all her detai;ls except her address.  This was so darling that I didn't want to undo it but of course I had to. And look at that sweet little tag!

I have only received the two so far, so I am looking forward to more.

My adventure with Rae Missingham has just begun.  I am surprised that having so much fun is not illegal.  I have never done anything like this before.  The 12 Tags of Christmas.  Here are my first three.  So much fun!!

 No 1
 No 2

No 3
Last but not least for today a couple of pages in my Journal 52 project.  I am behind but with my mornings happening I am trying to play catch ups.

Hopefully I get some readership.  Doesn't really matter because I guess this is mainly for my satisfaction But I really hope to be inspired to continue regularly.
