#Listers Gotta List and Random Stuff

First of all, there’s this:

Apr 23 weather

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.

Page 2 – “Favorite Songs of All Time”.  I just chose 10 random favorites…I have WAY more than that.lgl4

And, the two page spread:lgl34

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.  :)

Journaling by 5’s – Parts 1 & 2 – VIDEO!

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…

Playing in my Studio – VIDEO!

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!  :)
