I joined an art journal workshop, which is more like a "create along". Every week for the year, they give a prompt, and this is what I made for the prompt "The Lost Art of Love Letters".
When I was pregnant with Amelia, Eric gave me a ...gift. It was a pretty little box with hundreds of little pieces of paper that said what he thought of me, who I am, and a few things he would do for me. I used some of those little papers on this painting
Here are a couple others that I have done so far.
"Building character". I used Amelia's oil pastels that she just got. Drawing is not one of my talents, but I like how this turned out anyway. The words around her say "Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 1 Timothy 6:11"
While I was doing that, Lizzy asked me to draw a picture for her to color, and then wanted me to share it online. :)
This was for "You make me smile." The girls make me smile, and they are always giving me pictures that they made, which of course, makes me smile. I asked them each to draw some things, and I modge podged them together to make this. :)
"Up, Up and away" I painted this because I got to go on a balloon ride with grandma in 2012, and that is a great memory! :)
