TGF He-Art Journal - Week 1 Spead Your Wings

Hi everyone! I was crazy to challenge myself in signing up for TGF's He-ART Journal class, seeing how I already have so much going on in my life. But I was determine to try new things in using different mixed media related to crafting, which I still have so much to learn and explore of. It's a 23 week course,doing 2 page journal art work per week each week there will assign theme to be complete. I just hope i can keep up.

Here is my journal cover. I made this notebook using my Bind It All machine. Letters are from magazines that I cut up. The image is from TGF - Cheeky Nurse colored her using prismacolor pencils. I haven't use that a long time, didn't even know I had them. LOL. I also added some stickers. The sentiment on the heart says " Listen to my Heart" and also a stickers that says "Live out Loud."

Here is my 1st week's assignment the subject is "SPREAD YOUR WINGS!" I wanted to do a butterfly theme which is related to wings. First I started with the background using pastel chalks from The Stencil Collection in blue and aqua green color. Then sprayed some SU Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. Made my own rainbow using copic pens and added some Icicle stickles. The cloud is a stamp from Mindy Terasawa Clear Stamps called Animals. The big butterfly die cut is from my cricut using Potpourri Basket cartridge. Also use Martha Stewart Butterfly punch out added some butterfly stamps too and a butterfly sticker. Added TGF image - Flutter Anya and colored her with copic pens. Since the theme is Spread your Wings it remind me of the song from Mariah Carey called "Butterfly". I had so much doing this.

Well that's it for now. I have some good news since school started on Monday for my son he is now in 3rd grade and wow first day of school we got a letter he was nervous thinking he did something bad but no he did not it was a surprise that he got nominated to be part of the gifted & talented student's program. I'm so proud of him doing so good at school and behaving him self. I know this year for him will be tough with tons of homework and reading but I know he can do it. And for that I will have a small blog candy to give out. I will gathered and get some things and will post it sometime next week. So be sure to come back and visit my blog. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day :)
