Flyers Art Journal Swap (getting close to the end)

I am so excited because we are almost finished with our Journal Swap. We only have 2 more journals left and then we will have our own journals home and filled with amazing art from our fellow Flyer Artists. (we all took Kelly Rae Robert's class "Flying Lessons" together that's why were called flyers) There are several of us doing the swap. Here is the latest one I've been working on. It's Elizabeth's Journal. Cool cover isn't it?

I just put my hand to the paper and drew and this is what i came up with. It's a very creative process just go with the flow, let it all out. It's another form of meditation.


She likes dolphins.

Here is the whole page. I had a great time with this one. At the moment I can't do much because of the baby but one night I was able to slip this little bit of creativity in. It felt so good to let it out. 

It says,"When you feel it's lack of inspiration ride the waves of Art. Be Kind (to yourself) Be colorful and be free." 
Now to send it on to my Artist friend Sandy.

Bead Soup Blog Party! Reveal Day! Party!

I am only one in about 500 blogs participating in this Blog Party! 
Revealing my lovely beads sent off months ago...  to my partner Catie all wrapped up. I think she liked it!
It's funny because we sent off similar items to each other, he he, great minds think alike :)! 

I sent her a green group of beads.

 A purple group of beads.

A pink group of beads.

Some silver fun things.

A lovely group of pearls. Stir them all together and you've got a great bead soup! I neglected taking a picture of it but maybe Catie took one on her blog. Fingers crossed.

Here's what she sent me...

Everything was so neatly wrapped!

A lovely Metal Me This clasp and silver goodies!

Dragonflies which I also sent to her.

This is the Bead Soup! I love the color combo it's so delicious in the bowl. :)
I have not had much time to work on making anything spectacular yet with the baby and moving house. I did make a few little starters though...

Wire wrapped and awaiting the other beads.

You'll have to check back later for a finished necklace or bracelet at a later date. I am looking forward to making something beautiful with the large glass bead as a focal point!

Happy Bead Soup Blog Party! Make sure to visit my lovely partners blog next!
Catie and a big thank you to Lori who works her self silly getting this bead soup party off to a great start! Visit her here where you can see her beautiful creations and the list of 500 other participants.
