Mermaid love!!

The new prompt is up over at the A Year in the life of an Art Journal and here it is:

PROMPT: Wicked
SHOOTERS: Shoot your mug in a Dark setting.
BOOKERS: Remember that Wicked Witch of the East, and her striped stockings? Get painting! Stripe those pages up.

When I saw the prompt was to paint stripes I was inspired to paint monochromatic stripes using blues to make this 2 page spread about my love of mermaids! All stamps are by Viva Las VegaStamps! (aren't their mermaids gorgeous?????) You can stop by the Viva Las VegaStamps blog to see my blog post and all links to the stamps used.

Here is my art journal spread

and I also used gold embossing powder to do the star
and the bullseye
Before I leave here is one of my fave songs at the moment by the Goo Goo Dolls (of course), it's just perfect.

Daily Struggles

Hi everyone, Glenda here with a new journal prompt from A Year in the life of an art journal and here it is:

PROMPT: My Struggle. What is something you struggle with?
SHOOTERS: Shoot your mug all tied up. Use rope, twine, string...
BOOKERS: Use imagery or journal it. Let's do some misting today!

I have a few struggles (lucky me right??) and did a 2 page journal spread on them using the fabulous stamps by Viva Las VegaStamps!.
 Take this lady with an ax for example, who hasn't felt like that before, am I right???
Have a great day!!

I finally scrapped!!! It's been so long and I was working on pictures from January and have now gotten caught up to April!! haha Good grief. It felt good. I made 4 layouts this long weekend and 3 of them were concert layouts! Here they are in the order I saw them this past year.

First up we have Streetheart, remember them?? His voice is just as good as it was back then! (forgive grainy pic...not sure why it turned out so crappy!)

Then was April Wine, this concert was amazing!!! Loved all their songs and they too sounded every bit as good now as they did back then. Man this brought back memories!!

and then came Marianas Trench, loooveeee these guys!!!!!!!!! I had already seen them last fall but I did not pass on the opportunity to see them again. They are one of my favorite bands and they gave an amazing performace and all of their songs were sooooo awesome!!!!!
and then a non-concert layout about my sweet peas!

Boy this felt good to get 4 layouts done!! Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Oh, I have started watching "Orange is the New Black" since we finished Breaking Bad. I'm loving it so far!!
