Art Journal: Graffiti Of My Life

I'm taking Dina Wakley's Graffiti Of My Life - Art Journaling 301 class at Get It Scrapped and loving it!!  I really like that we are working on all the pages at the same time instead of individually like I usually do it.  I think it's going to make a great finished project.

I hope to take photos of the progress along the way, so here's the base layer of my pages from lesson #1.  

(Click on photos to see them larger.)

I think it will be cool to see how my "drop cloth" develops over the class I snapped it's photo too.  I recycled it from a big piece of paper that came in the box of a recent online purchase.



Halloween Candy Jar

We have too much candy around the house lately!  

Candy by it's self is pretty appealing, but I usually do something to add some holiday or seasonal pizazz to this jar when I fill it here's what I did this time.


All my favorite things: peanut M&M's, glitter, and tulle!
