Art Journaling – Week 14 – Float

After week 13’s emotional art journaling page, I was a little tapped out so I kept it simple this week. I love this poem I stumbled across by David Polis. My favorite line is, “Age is like a rainbow that follows the storms of life.”  So what do you prefer, the flowers or the rainbows?

Tilley Family Portraits

Spring is in full bloom and so is the need for updated family portraits. Mom has been saving up for an Image Block Collection ever since she first saw the sample I purchased shortly after WPPI 2012.  And the Plaza Grande is perfect for this family of 6.  There’s a large block to showcase the…

The Blood Moon

Capturing the blood moon (the first of 4 lunar eclipses visible in North America over the next 17 months) was almost perfect. Camping spot picked out at Ryan Campground. Check! Makings for s’mores.

Art Journaling – Week 10

I have been totally MIA around my blog lately. I sit down to write and the words, they just are not forthcoming. It’s like my brain just freezes up. I’ve been told many time to outsource what you don’t like to do so I’ve actually considered hiring someone to write for me.  Anyone interested in…

Art Journaling – Week 7

As beautiful as Sedona is, I was just really disappointed with the most of the images I captured with my DSLR.  Just wasn’t feeling the colors in my images that I saw with my eyes.  So I decided to take a break from my photo editing and turn my energy towards my art journaling.  I…
