Fantasy & Wings for More Than Words

I am living the dream of visiting my FANTASY land this month with our More Than Words challenge.

Oh what fun did I have with this one. I've had this amazing funky flower stamp set in my stash just waiting for me to play around with. They were just perfect to create my imaginary FANTASY world as I would of course be the Queen Fairy in my world and you know, all Queen Fairies have huge WINGS.

Here is my watercolor project:

I used Strathmore 12x 12 watercolor paper, started my background by stamping my flowers with Archival ink. Then colored with my elements with watercolors.

For my Fairy, I used a Dina Wakely Stamp and added chipboard wings that I covered in black gesso and altered with my Prima Finnabair Waxes.

Here is the inspiration board, I hope you'll be inspired and want to play along.

Always & Quote for More Than Words

It's February already, and time for our new More Than Words challenge.

My layout for this challenge: ALWAYS & QUOTE

Always, such a beautiful word that I found powerful for my baby layout. This adorable picture of my friend's daughter I just had to create. 

Quote: Be your own kind of beautiful, again powerful quote for a baby girl.

Here are a few closer pics of the layout:

I love the soft embossed chipboard and water-coloring on my background and stamped flowers.

Goals & Journaling for More Than Words

Welcome 2019 ! 

Oh how happy I am to have 2018 done and over with...

What better way to start off a new year by setting up new goals and journaling about them. This month, I got out of my comfort zone and decided to play along in my Art Journal. 

My GOALS for 2019:
  • Exercise 4 days per week
  • drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day
  • 1 week vacation as a family (harder now with young adults that are working)
  • Embrace changes ... at work, ...in my personal life... this is not always easy for me
  • BREATHE... you've got this.... Have  more confidence in my abilities and trust I can achieve my goals.
The JOURNALING part of the challenge was completed by using a bullet card ans hand writing my goals in my journal.

Here is the inspiration board for January:
