Live the Life You've Imagined

This journal page was inspired by "Summer Days." On vacation, I loved watching the sea turtle hatching on the beach. 
I painted the turtle and background with watercolor.  I added markers for the shading and a crackle stamp to give the turtle shell texture.  I'm not sure if this photo shows the vibrancy of the colors.

Who Am I

Hello crafty friends.  I have another mixed media journal page to share with you today.  The prompt was "Who am I".  I used a lot of wonderful elements to create this page. Several of them were; old laundry stub, a page of an ice cream order book, quote from a magazine along with other elements found in magazines.  The background was created with acrylic paint.  The cloths pin hold a photo of myself and my English Bulldog, Rosie.  To view the characteristics of what make By lifting up the photo to revile the list.

Beautiful Peacock

This mixed media page was fun to make. Let's start with the background. I mixed gesso and grey acrylic paint together and stamped the image on the page. I then used water down acrylic paint in blue and bright green and painted over the stamped image. I drew the peacock on some white card stock and then added it to the page. I used blue, green, yellow, pink and purple acrylic paints for the peacocks feathers. Finishing touches were doodling feathers, using a checkered pattern stamp and a white Sharpie marker. 

I created this page for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #13 "A Year of Choices."
I selected the theme, "Birds of a Feather." Do Peacocks have wings? Yes they do. They are excellent fliers with beautiful wings. Their beautiful tail is held straight back when they fly.
Some would say peacocks only have 1 feather, they would be wrong! A peacock can hold up to 30 small feathers or 4 HUGE ones but 20 medium or average size feathers. The way peacocks spread they're tail/feathers it can look like just a single feather.
