Week 6 He-Art Journal and Thankful Thursday

I'm still here :)
Thank you for the sweet comments from yesterdays post. I feel loved that you all would miss my blog if it didn't come back :) You all put a smile on my face and love in my heart.

Today is Week 6 of the He-Art Journal Challenge.
WEEK 6 - Text Me! (using lots of text)

Assignment: Create a spread or a page using mainly text and lettering! This includes numbers, symbols, handwritten or typed, phrases, etc. Use any stamps you want, colors, etc. Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!

Here are my pages.
Last week I did a page full of text. If you don't remember here it is. Week 5. So when I read this assignment I was kind of bummed. So I came up with a plan. I was going to draw an angle (I wanted to try my hand at drawing and colouring a flowing dress). Then she was going to have words written in her dress and in her hair and she was going to be blowing inspirational words out to the wind.
Ya this turned out nothing like I planned, lol.

 Here is the 1st page.When I was on YouTube the other day, I saw an artist who drew beautiful fairies and angles. So I wanted to try my hand at drawing.

I know I am no artist but I had fun trying to draw her.
I coloured her in with my Copic markers.

 I couldn't find my white pen.
So what I did on the words was I wrote them out with my embossing pen, then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.
Onto My Day:
I worked all day long. Pretty exciting eh?
My butt is actually sore from sitting on it all day, lol.
Hubby and I did get some groceries for camp/cottage this long weekend. I am so looking forward to going up there. We really haven't been up there a lot this summer, and summer is coming to an end :(

I got a text from my sister that my nephew broke his jaw yesterday.
The hospital told her it was just dislocated, but to come by the hospital today to get a cat scan. Then they tell her no its broke. It was a clean break, so he needs to get his jaw wired shut. Luckily he doesn't need pins or anything that drastic. Poor kid, its his first year of high school starting next week.
So tomorrow I will go with them when he goes in the hospital to get this done.

Thankful Thursday:
My nephew didn't hurt himself worse then he did.
Adding machines
My daughters kindness
All you for visiting me and commenting :)

Hope your Thursday was a creative one.



  1. The hair looks amazing! So sorry about your nephew. Hope he recovers quickly

  2. This is great. Thanks for sharing

  3. She looks great!! If you want to blend her hair a little more - take the lightest color you used, and color (with strokes) over all the blended areas. Just a little tip someone else taught me a while back.
