Artsy Friday

My Circle Journal have reached home!!! After being away for almost an year she is back. The pages are filled with beautiful art from 14 talented women 
This is my Journal. It is an altered book and I painted the cover using water colors. I am sharing the first seven pages from my book.   

The first beautiful summer art that I received was from Pam who is in California.

Pam then sent it to Raquel in Texas. She did this inspiring page from one of Junelle Jacobson's classes.
The next Fall themed page was done by Emma from California.
 Emma then handed it over to her daughter Cat. Her page is rich in colors and stamp prints.
 I love the texture in the middle of this sunflower. This lovely page was done by Donna from Georgia.
It was then sent to Washington where this shimmery winter page was done by Merri 
By then it was 2014 and she landed in Texas again at Jeanne's place. Love the cheerful colors and the owl  
That is it for today. I will share the next 7 plus my page on my next blog post. 

 As for my own art this week, I'm currently inspired to do daily sketching. I've decided to do one sketch  a day  for the rest of this year, Oops! that is going to be hard still I'm going to give it a try.
This is my first sketch. It is my son's sippy cup-:) I'm sure after a couple of years we are going to enjoy looking at these kind of pictures.

 I'm linking my sketch to Sunday Sketches.
 I'm also linking this post to PPF and Art Journal Everyday
Thank you for visiting


  1. Hi Susan!! So happy to see more art from you this week. WOW WOW WOW that journal is GORGEOUS and so perfect for YOU!! I love that it has different seasons in it, so cool!! Love that some was inspired my Junelle's class, YAY!! Each one is amazing and they are talented and creative! I bet you were happy dancing when it came back to you safely and beautifully!! Can't wait to see the next 7 pages!! How do you know who and when each person had it? Is there a travel log in it? So cool that it traveled all over, love that idea.

    Susan, I was just thinking last night before falling asleep that I wanted to sketch a day for the year, I miss doing those daily book paper sketches. So we must do this sketching together dear friend and motivate each other to keep it going!! Are you putting yours in your daily journal or a special one just for that? Are you always going to add color?
    This first one is soooo cute! I bet he was happy to see it on your page!

    I will wait for your answers then decide how to do mine. Could continue with book paper or just use a small journal I have and not add color though, just sketches.

    My SOC is posted today, YAY!! I love these colors!
    Happy weekend and father's day with your hubby and boys!
