MMM: Anywhere Is

Music Matters Monday


So, this page has a lot of layers, a lot. 
I wasn't happy with anything that I was doing!
Nevertheless, it's done :)

The Art...

I knew I wanted to play with Derwent Inktense pencils & blocks.
{{Those are so neat. So much color!! When you add the water, magic!}}
I covered all that lovely color up with gesso though, just wasn't feeling it this time.

also used:
spray Inks, India ink, washi tape & bling.

Not a favorite page by far but...I'm moving on.
As Enya, in all her Irish glory sang, "Anwhere Is", 
I figured, right now, Anywhere is ok least it's somewhere. :)

Even if it's somehwhere upside down!
Yes, yes. I accidentally did the whole thing upside down too.


The Music...

Best of Enya, full album!
"Anywhere is" begins at 11:29.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Smashing Sunday!

Whale & Wasp by AIC

I played in my Smashbook today & wanted to share some photos =)

^some heart stuff = valentine's day.
left side: a couple of things that Savannah made
right side: a Valentine from my friend & a card I made at stamp club last year & never used.

^this is just a photo of an art journal page I did a while back.
the butterfly is a cut out from a school paper Kam brought home one day.
this page isn't done, I just glued it in for now because it was dying to be used ;)

Made a pocket to hold some cards my Aunt mailed to me.
the embellishments on the pocket are cut outs from my stash of scrapbook paper.

here, I used a K&Co insert (green striped) that I've had for a long time & never knew how to use!
Yes, I emailed K&Co asking them how to use it lol.
& once they explained it to me....doh! 
"I'm 14 million miles away from sane" -blue october
just doodled with my markers.

a page of bff pics, just us hanging out. :)

I had a good time playing around in my smashbook this morning.
Hope YOU had a good time doing fun stuff too!
