The group challenge was to write out your name and decorate it. My personal challenge was spring cleaning, and OMG it just gets harder every year. Thank goodness I have a small, (very small), place.

She sure is a beautiful girl, isn't she?
April's Challenge was Messy Monochrome, black and white, and the use of one or two accent colors. I started my page with a stencil background that I painstakingly colored. I colored every little circle and outlined every flower and filled everything in. Then I slapped on this beautiful picture of Rhianna and covered it all up! I've always had a bit of a hard time covering up great backgrounds or what I think looks good enough, but I'm getting braver and not regretting it!

Here they are in their natural washi state. I don't know if they'll look this cute when I'm done!

I'm happy with week 13! Our challenge was to have someone else start the page, so a friend just drew lines on the page and that was that. I used Cathy Bluteau's technique that I learned in her 21 Secrets class. It was one of my favorite classes and I think she's still offering it on her website at a reduced rate. It's definitely worth taking! I forgot how much fun it was to make these little decorative squares!
On the inside flap I used photocopies of two of my 52 pick up cards and just colored the hearts to give them more pop. The center page is a collage of some of the items I love using, vintage photos and flowers.
Thanks for stopping by!

I've taken a few classes from Joanne and adore her writing and teaching style. This is a woman that absolutely loves what she does! I can't wait to dive into her first book and play. I just signed up for another one of her classes, Doodle Arts and Lettering, and plan on practicing some of those doodles in my DLP!
Art Journaling, by Stampington & Co, just gets better and better. I've been getting this hard cover magazine for several years and not once have I considered cancelling. It never gets old. I was so excited when I received this issue, the spreads are fabulous and there's a great article about Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, one of my all time favorites.

Week 10's challenge was to write a list of what makes me "Me". I don't think I could have been any less creative with this one.
Week 11 - Add a bird!
