Goodbye May

Wow! Today is the 30th and May is passing us... Almost half of 2014 is finished! Sometimes I wish I could slow down the hours.
These are some of the art that I did this week.
Thank you Linda for sharing the link to Mindy Lacefield's free online class, Sunday Mornings. I too tried my hand at the Prayer Portrait.
On the left I tried my own girl and added the Serenity Prayer on the page. On the right is the girl that Mindy teaches in class. I enjoyed adding layers after layers on it but found it difficult to blend the shades on her face-:(  On that page I added Psalms 23:4 lines around her.

Next, here are some of the pages from my daily journal. The above pages were done after the prompts given by the DLP, Documented Life Project.

 The challenge for Week-20 was to use stamps in a different way. I used various spring/summer related stamps on painted deli sheets and then adhered it to my journal.
The challenge for Week-21 was to use thread or floss. I glued the flower picture on scraps of painted papers and stitched around the flowers.

 Week-22 The challenge was to draw/paint/sketch a house. I made a collage of my house using the pretty pattern papers from American Crafts.

Finally, a bird painting that I did using my Koi watercolors.

I'm linking my page to PPF and Art Journal Everyday
Wish you all a pleasant and happy weekend
