Missed One!

So, as soon as I hit publish on the last post, I remembered that there was another journal page before that one. Wanna know a secret? It has an afro too! I was feeling a serious urge to paint one night and was thinking about my mom, so I made myself a page.  You'd think I would have learned from this page about letting paint dry. Clearly I'll need to work on that as I go forward... wanna know another secret? The art journal page I finished today has an afro too!!

There's Another Afro Coming!

Something about Aunt Hope actually leaving a comment on my blog rather than sending me a text made me feel like I probably should post something! :D  Is it strange that I've been happy since this afternoon because they finally released an Android update for the S3 and I was able to get awesomely cool emoji on the Google Keyboard?? (Don't judge me for being nerdy...)  My godmother was texting me after my mom died, and I was severely disturbed that she had all these great emoji and I had NONE! Just smiley faces. I did all sorts of reading and ended up with a couple more, but not enough to make me use the Google Keyboard instead of Swype. I think I might just type with Swype then switch to Google to add cute pictures when I'm actually in the mood to do so...

Was that enough nerdspeak for you??? :D Cool... I just decided that I should just post projects as they occurred, so you'll probably see some Father's Day cards next week or so. I'm jumping back to the beginning of June for this project. ***GRRR... my internet died for, like, the seventh time today. I'll just keep typing and hope that the connection comes back so that Google can save this post. Now I don't feel like typing anymore. SOOOOO... here's another, yes another, big haired lovely from my art journal. **Are you frustrated enough to lose your common sense? can Trina upload a picture to Blogger with no internet?? Shame...

Yes, her cheeks are mighty pink, but it's an art journal page! :D

Here's a collage to show how the page went from a little sketch in my sketchbook to this colorful page:

I have to get some patience so I can let my paint layers dry. I kept pulling up the paint...

Be well out there!!

I Was Thinking About You...

I'm writing this post early so I don't forget to do it. I really thought it was Tuesday, but it's only Monday! (It'll be at least Wednesday before you get to read this...) Right now, I'm suffering with my awesome sinuses again. I took medicine yesterday after days of nonsense, and now I'm stuck with a pain from that sinus space above the teeth. It's like a toothache; it hurts when I chew or open my mouth to get in a decent sized bite of food... :(  I know, whine, whine, complain, complain...

Anyway, here's my card for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz using an image from this month's prize sponsor, The Stamping Chef:

Do You Stamp Sentiments Inside Your Cards?

Sometimes, I know what I want a card to say, but I usually leave the inside blank. Do you stamp the insides when you make cards?

I put gesso on that chipboard star before coloring it with a Copic. I do NOT like how it turned out. Think Glossy Accents will hide those brush strokes??

There's a little bit of time left to get in on the last May Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz.  I used Lunar Deity from Art by Mi Ran, May's prize sponsor, for this card. Come over and play! Here's the sketch:

A new sketch challenge starts Wednesday! And if you don't like a sketch, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday all started Anything Goes challenges last week!
