Life Q's - Week #8- What profundity 'moves' you and touches your soul?


What profundity 'moves' you and touches your soul?
A profundity can be a lyric from a song, a quote from the spoken word or a verse from the Bible. Something you hear and it really moves and inspires you.
For this prompt i journaled "Yet Still I Rise' by Yolanda Adams. That song has risen me up from the darkest moments in my life and it has really inspired me to always just put one step in front of the other.
For my page I first painted the background with gesso and then blue paint. I created a sun with orange printed paper that I embelished with yellow paint and gold stickles. I used a photo and added elements to it and then added a string of pompoms for some whimsy. The pom pom flower has real copper leaves and the center circle is tuille. The arrow and clouds were painted with Stampin Up shimmer paint. K and Company felt flowers and a little die cut bee finish off the page.

Artists have dirty hands...and other reasons to have an indoor picnic!





I had a wonderful artistic weekend all around. On Friday I picked up my oldest grandson for an art journaling date which he loves to do and after a couple of hours we decided to have a true feast of cheese, yogurt, pasta and fruit on a blanket with the paint still on our hands. We drank from fancy glasses and had a wonderful,magical feast. I managed to get my Life Q- Week #8 done on time as well as finishing my Chunky He(art) pages for an Art forty two swap.By the end of the weekend we all had ink on our hands and glitter in our hair and it was absolutely marvelous!!!

Life Q's - Week #6

This week's question is: Saturdays are a great day for ______________.

Life Q's - Week #6 - Saturdays is a great day for _________



Saturdays is a great day for _________

I was totally inspired by the lyrics of the song 'Saturdays In The Park by Chicago :
"Can you dig it? Yes I can and I've been waiting such a long time... for Saturday...!"
Saturdays are my most favorite day of the week! I was making this video on a Saturday and because it is my favorite day of the week I thought it would make the perfect prompt!
I started with a page from the Just Chillin paper pack from Making Memories and after coloring it with my Stampin' Up markers and distressing it with Ranger inks I added lots of bling! My journaling reads:
'Saturdays (are great) for chillaxin', lunches, movies, shopping and for hanging out with your 'sister friends!'
