I started out gluing down white backing from a decorative napkin to give the page some tooth when I went to gesso the page. After that dried I glued don Tissue paper from Tim Holtz. Once that dried I used Americana paints in Saffron Yellow (for the base layer) Dragon Fruit, and Purple Rain. I used the other 2 colors and did drips on the side f the pages. I took some watercolor paper from my stash and used Tattered Angles Plain Jane Simply Sheer in Un-Birthday on the entire page. and punched out squares. Glued them on the page. I stamped the Overlapping Squares added some splots with the Simply Sheer spray. for my focal point, I used a calendar page I placed her in between the butterfly, so it looked like she has wings. I glued down the quote that was on the same calendar page she was. Finally I added more splots with the pink and purple on the page.

Happy Holidays! Today is the first night of Hanukkah and Christmas eve. This morning while waiting to for packages to come in the mail, and for something good to come on TV. I decided to play in the Mix Media Moods challenge hosted by DeeDee Catron andMixed Media Jen. Each month they have a mood board to inspire our project. I did a journal page.
From the mood board seen at the link above, I was inspired by the blue colors, hexagons and the birds. The process Video of this video will be up tomorrow.

Well its November, and with November comes so many things: Thanksgiving, election day, Veterans day, My Birthday, and NaNoJouMo!
NaNoJouMo was started by Dawn Sokol. Everyday in November you can do little or as much art journaling everyday in November. Dawn gives us prompts for every day that you can use or go off on your own. This year she listed all the prompts at once. Which I think is great. If I wanted to I can film 2 or 3 pages in a day. And I'll be going away for Thanksgiving so I went ahead and did those pages so I wouldn't be too behind.
Here are the pages for Nov. 2-8. I have most of the pages, including Nov. 1st page up on my YouTube Channel. I even made a playlist for NaNoJouMo 2016
