dog hop winner and a bunny journal page

Congratulations Sue for winning the roc postcard in my last post. 
I will be mailing it to you once you send me your address  :)
Working in my small journal I used "screaming bunny" and some magazine scrap cut-outs.
 Always love playing with this little screamer cuz he can do so many things when you put him in pictures!
Did I mention that I love to journal and paint on book pages?  I cut bunny up and put him in this drawn glass mug from a magazine.  I did some doodling and the sentiment was computer made.    :)
Thanks for looking!

HI! this "dog" gets around!

Love this little sweetie called just "dog" from artist roc nicholas at the Stampotique store..He seems to be well loved and "traveled".   It seems everyone that buys him has him moving all over the world!
I found this awesome magazine while I was in Cincinnati called "frankie".  I think it is from Australia but i am not sure...if you know, please tell me  :)  I love the articles and the photos.  I cut this little room out of a picture, did some doodling on it and stamping (funky leaves image from Stampotique also) then put it on some designer papers.
"Dog" is stamped on some book print and cut out.  Isnt he just the cutest?  Thanks for looking!

Hello mid- way thru August...

Nope...nothing is under control!  lol  This is "dog" rubber stamp available at the Stampotique store by artist roc nicholas
I was digging thru my gelli prints and cut this square for my base.  I doodled some flowers with a white signo pen and popped on some washi tape.  "Dog" is colored with markers  (put on with pop dots) and I added some spots on him.  :)  Sentiment is so perfect for me...pinterest inspired.
Thanks for looking!

yes I LOVE this flying pig....

Once again I have this flying pig zooming into my art studio!
Had to share! Since its my turn up in July to post a creation with a "roc" image and I couldnt resist picking this guy up.
My green pig was colored with yg copics and cut out.  Background is ofcourse acrylics swept on with a credit card.  I have also used roc's "flying heart" with the wings.  Sentiment is computer generated!
Just a note....  
due to life responsibilities ..i dont blog as much.  I am posting more regular on my Face Book page.  If you are interested, send me a friend request!
Thanks for looking!

Getting "journal ready" for vacation

Lately I have seen a LOT of posts about taking your journal with you on vacation..what to bring...etc.   I LOVE Ronda P.'s blog and she just did a great post on it.
  I found this reduced price leather covered journal in Hobby Lobby.  The front is plain with "God is Good" embedded in it and the inside is lined pages with a short bible verse on the bottom of each page. Nice cuz I can choose to leave that showing  if i wish.   It is pretty thick too.  I started by gluing several of the pages together through out the whole book.
Then following Ronda's advice I just started putting marks down on each page.  I used some dylusions sprays through a stencil, some acrylics spread on with a credit card and I even did some doodling.  I drew some birds and colored them and cut them out.  Just really getting something down on most of the pages. 

(Stampotique sun and leaves images)

Below is an inked and doodled  paper that i cut in to a large scallop...i did a little water coloring after the acyrlic shmear..

Love to pull out my "roc nicholas" images and add them in too....i can color them or journal on them later...  (squiggle arms and scalloped border

 roc's "stacked cups"

Then...well....yes, I couldnt resist finishing a page!
I used "bunny"  from the Stampotique store (roc nicholas again :)  along with a doodled girl face and a cheap feather image from Michaels i think..the flowers under bunny and the sun image can also be found at the Stampotique store.
Who knew getting a journal "ready" would be so much fun?    I plan on packing my small art pouch with my inktense pencils, markers, pens and some small scissors...oh, and my waterbrush...cant wait!  TFL!

Winner from my blog for the "roc hop" post

Happy Weekend!  I put everyones' name in a hat and picked Sue  !
Congratulations Sue and this pig card ( from the last post) will be flying to you as soon as you send me your address.
Mean time here is a mixed media card featuring "roc's angel" from the Stampotique store.  The back ground is some distress markers and water.  I used a sharpie to make the black scallop border at the top and a white uniball signo pen to doodle.  The image is paper pieced and I also used the sun and leaf images (Stampotique store).  White is just a white acrylic wash thru a TH stencil.  Sentiment is a sticker.  Thanks for looking!
