Today's post is a journal page I created for Create Something Catchy Mixed Media Challenge.  I had to think awhile before something hit me?  I decided to create a BINGO card and then add inspirational words to the page.  There are several 3-d items included on this page: crochet flower, star eyelet, ribbons, silver heart and another fabric flower in the lower right corner. 
From the inspirational photo (below) I choose the red, brown and black colors and playfulness of the image.  I add the large red heart to reflect the love they have for each other and the color of the umbrella.
What do you think?

Bird Weather

Today's post is a journal page which I created using watercolor paint and a fine tip marker.  I really love watching birds and being in nature. 
Below is the photo I used for inspiration (source The tulips are so beautiful in the image.

Flower and a Butterfly

Today's journaling page was created for the the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Their May challenge was flowers. I also wanted to include  something I need to work on. Let's see if you can figure it out. The background was created with a white crayon and watercolors. I wanted the look of a chevron pattern. Do you see it?  The flower was created with Copic markers. I stamped the butterfly on a separate piece of paper and colored the image with Copics. I then wanted the butterfly to be 3-d.
I love this quote, "You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.

All of Me

I have a journal page to share for the prompt: "What song are you currently groovin' too?" For me it's a song by John Legend, All of Me. I created the background by using a stencil and teal green acrylic paint. I drew the women on a separate  piece of card stock and used Copic markers. The sheet music edges where sponged with dark chocolate and black ink to give the appearance  of brunt paper. Finishing touches were a metal key and heart.

What are you groovin' too?
