Root-10 to 12 T for Tuesday

Hello to Elizabeth and my other awesome T for Tuesday friends.Though it is raining here now, I'm so Thankful for the better temperatures that we are having this week.

Today I have to share more art that I did as part of Lisa Sonora Beam's Root:30 Day Journal Project.
Dear Elizabeth for this week's Tea or drink I wanted to share this collage that I did for the above mentioned project. Lisa gave an awesome prompt about the need to take enough rest; a cup of coffee and some good music can work wonders for me.

For Friday, her prompt was related to Happiness. I did the above page using Gelatos.The dragonfly was colored using Twinks.  I think this year so far these are my two favorite mediums to work with: Twinkling H20'S and Gelatos.
The 11th prompt by Nietzsche was about how we can rise and succeed even in the midst of chaos.Another favorite page where I did tons of stamping and stencilling.

I have also joined for another wonderful free project named where we will get one prompt per week. The first week's prompt was "UP, Up and Away". I did this page with butterflies using gelatos and neo colors.

There! one more art to share from the Documented Life Project. The challenge for Week-2 was to add a selfie to your journal page.
This is a photo of mine that my almost 3 year old son took from my phone when we were out shopping. Only later I saw this saved on my phone and thought of using it for this project. I love quotes and added two of them too.
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream..." C.S.Lewis
"Energy and Persistence conquer all things"Benjamin Franklin
These are like a reminder to my own self on reaching my goals.
Thank you for checking


  1. Great journal pages! Love my Gelatos, they are so much fun to play with.
    Thanks for sharing your journal pages.
    Happy T-day

  2. Wow, you are so creative! Thanks for sharing these inspiring quotes and journal pages. Happy T Day!

  3. I've never owned gelatos, but they look beautiful and very colorful. I am a big fan of twinks, though, although I haven't used mine in ages.

    I'm having trouble staying logged onto blogger, and that is why I'm late getting here. I'm glad to read that another person has joined Project 52, even though I only post to my blog and not the other social media sites. Your response to the prompt is amazing. Love the butterflies.

    The prompt for needing to rest turned into this awesome collage I really, really like with the coffee and other collage elements. Incredibly creative. Thanks for sharing these wonderful and unique journal pages during T today!

  4. Your journal pages are beautiful! I love how you've combined words, and ideas, and images! Very nicely done.

  5. Thanks for sharing all of this beautiful art! I like how colorful they are. I have heard so much about gellatos and twinks,but have not had time to play around with them.
