Hello Everyone! 

Welcome to the final days of the Get Your Art On challenge! Here's are some journal pages I've been working on this past week. 
Day 23 Oh Happy Day 
Day 23-Oh Happy Day!  Having a great day plastering on papers and adding a bit of ink, water color pencils to this page. 

Day 24-Groovy
Day 24-Groovy:  This isn't my favorite page but it is what it is. I was out and about this day having a great day adding to my Distress Ink collection. I found acrylic paints on sale so I treated myself to a few bottles in bright tropical colors and came home and played with them. 

Day 25 Tropic Winds
Day 25-Tropic Winds: The winds began to pick up from Hurricane Sandy as it was approaching off shore near the Bahamas.  I started with scrapping pink and blue acrylic paints vertically on the page, adding spiced marmalade and mustard seed Distress ink to the mix. I cut palm branches from text and inked them, also leaves were zentangled for fun. 

Day 26 Baby Girl Loves Pink & Purple
Day 26-Baby Girl Loves Pink & Purple: Yes it is true, my 3 yr. old grand daughter is in love with these colors. She will hoard pink and purple crayons too! I threw in a bit of red gelatos and yellow acrylic paint for a bit of variation on the Pink and Purple theme. Added the zentangle scalloped border for fun. 
Day 27-Gator Chomp
Day 27-Gator Chomp: I'm a Florida Gator fan. I had this great gator stamp but thought it looked a bit weak on the background so I decided to make my own Gator from newsprint! I really like this page. GO GATORS

Day 28-By Grace
Day 28-Reformation:  Romans 3:23-24 "It is by grace we are saved. 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus". 

I sure had a great week experimenting/playing with my new colors! I hope you had a creative week too!  For those in the path of Hurricane Sandy in the North East, please stay safe and know that our prayers are with you!

Oh Happy Day is my favorite but I am partial to your Hibiscus :) I have the 4 canvases you painted for Amy's room. Maybe one day I will have a studio to hang them in!

That is awesome! I really love them all. I love art. I use my artistic side to create with textiles and to transform furniture with paint. My girls love to draw and i can totally see them getting into this kind of art. Time to add to their collection of markers, pencils, paints, and pens!
