Here is Part 3 of my version of Shannon Green’s challenge. Enjoy! I finally received my Dylusions paints, and was able to use them in this challenge/video! :)

I’m so proud – I finished 3 pages this weekend! Mind you, my studio looks like a cyclone went through it…lol

First of all, there’s this:
Last week, we were having summer-like weather and temperatures, and hubby was playing tennis OUTDOORS! Today, I woke up to SNOW on my patio furniture. Ack. Meh. Oh well, at least we know it won’t last.
So, this will probably end up being kind of a long, random post, but that’s just the way I roll (blog). ;)
I got a new computer, so had to go through all of my files on my old computer. Since it’s Thursday, thought I’d share a couple of old photos of family members who are no longer with us. RIP Bev, Mom, and Nac. (My aunt, Mom, and sister)
#Listers Gotta List
I came across this new challenge group – Listers Gotta List #listersgottalist (cuz, yep, I need another one lol) – and decided to play along. Let’s see if I can keep this one up.
It was started by “The Reset Girl” and it’s basically a planner challenge (I don’t really have a planner in the true sense of the word, which makes this even funnier). I started it because I thought it was something I could do while watching TV at night – “couch art”. But, I quickly discovered that I can’t really do this challenge without all of my “supplies” nearby. Cuz, yah, I have a HUGE stash of stuff that I want to use up – (another reason why I decided to do this project). The photos of these “lists” are all over social media – Instagram, Facebook, Youtube. It began on April 1st, so I’m already WAY behind, but that doesn’t really bother me. It’s just about making lists, so I will just participate on my own timeline.
Many participants are using separate journals for this project, but I have so many journals that are partially filled, that I thought I’d try to finish one of my existing journals, which is a Moleskine sketch journal that I used to do a Pan Pastel class with Donna Downey a couple of years ago. So, I didn’t decorate the cover of this journal. I did do a “title page” of sorts, though, which is below.
I got the tag (on the left side) from Joanne Sharpe, when I took a class with her a year or so ago. The “splats” in the background are made with Tim Holtz Distress Stains.

That’s as far as I ‘ve gotten so far, but it’s FUN! If you have any questions at all, or just wanna say “hi”, please leave me a comment! I always enjoy comments. :)

As promised, another video today! I decided to play along with Shannon Green’s “Journaling by 5’s”. It’s quite popular on Youtube, and she even has a Facebook group. The idea is to complete 20 art journal pages, using 5 sets of prompts, with a 15 minute time limit for each prompt. Confused yet? I know I was, until I watched Shannon’s video here.
Well, I’m not much of a rule follower, and I’m a slow art journaler, so this is MY VERSION of her challenge. I started out trying to give myself the time limit, but found it difficult, and not really enjoyable. So, I turned off the timer, and just started to play. Then, the happy happened!
I should add that I said in the video that I only did 10 pages, but apparently I can’t count, because I did actually do 20 lol.
Here’s my video.
On to Step 3…

This is part one of this particular project. I’m just experimenting with textural mediums and color. I hope you enjoy it! If you have any questions AT ALL, please ask! I would be happy to respond.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I’ve got another video to show you tomorrow, so come on back! :)
