Characters in my Book

Andrea (Andy)
 Sam (Sammy)
 Becca
I am writing a book about Monsters. These are 3 of the characters in the book. However, I think I need to work on Becca.  Brad is another character yet to be drawn. He's the bully. Big Bad Brad.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for have a great Paint Party Friday for artists who want to show the world their talent, creativity, and just have a comfortable place to be each week. We all just want to teach, learn and share. (((Hugs))) to you both.
Blessings,
Janet

Journal Inside Cover Week 1


This is the inside cover for Week 1 . . . I still have to do my first page for Week 1 Goals. However, I am continuing my goals that I had for 2014.  The Yellow Cottage has been going on for quite a few years. God is in Charge and He will lead my pathway toward it or toward something Better.

I used wallpaper, scrapbook sheet (grass) and a portion of a calendar (Yellow cottage). I made the God is in Charge and the 2015, also the saying. . . 
Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period.

Thank you so much Eva and Kristin for being here every week at Paint Party Friday for those of us that need a creative space to play, to be with others of like minds, and to learn so much about the world of art through these great creative artists.

Blessings,
Janet
Today, be the person of your dreams.  
See life through THEIR eyes.
Make decisions with THEIR mind.

What a difference Your world will be.

Journal Week 53 2014


Use the first letter of your name. I decided to spell it out JAnET in ART.  I used pastels and pen.  The cloud is gesso for texture.  Fun Project.  We have our assignment for 2015 and I picked up my Journal book 12/31.

I appreciate being able to be original for each of the assignments. It helps me be more creative to receive an assignment and then to use to make it my own.  After all, it is MY Documented Life Journal.

Thank you Eva and Kristin at the start of a New Year.  This is a creative, interesting, fun and wonderful site for meeting the most friendly teachers of art, patient and kind. I am so proud to be part of this Great Art Community of Paint Party Friday.  Be sure to visit these fantastic artists and see for yourself.  Oh, Yes, and there are wonderful videos too.

Blessings,
Janet
