DLP 2015 Catch Up!

Playing Catch up & Finishing my
Documented Life Journal 2015

At the end of last year I printed out all of the  challenges
that I had not gotten to.  At some point I must have glued 
some of the pages together, I had more challenges left 
than pages!  So I decided to pick which ones I wanted to do!  
The next couple of posts are the finished journal, and how it
went, so here we go!

November theme: Stencils, Stamps & Masks
Art Challenge: Use a mask
Journal Prompt: "Mask" arade

The end of Summer

As summer ends...
I paused to think what I have done,
at first it didn't feel like much,
but putting it all together made me feel better!

I was lucky enough to do something almost everyday,
hopefully I can continue that as we enter the fall.

I created a few videos for Donna Downey Studios,
was fortunate enough to attend a class with Melanie Morris,
meet some great artist's and make a connection with them.

Spend time with my family, go to the beach,
Now we are getting ready for school & back to work.

Looking forward to creating for Jessica Sporn Designs,
and to continue to paint and create.

So here's a little summer recap!

Looking forward to fall...
What a beautiful time of year!

Thanks for stopping by!
