Pennant challenge

Dear friends,
Had to make a pennant as part of a challenge on celebration. I am celebrating returning to church on Sundays after a long break. Church is like a wonderful family to me. I am celebrating.

Altered book pages

Dear friends,
Here are some simple pages from my first altered book. I am loving to do them. I find my art is quite simple which is a contrast to my busy complex mind.

Be still

Dear friends,
As part of online course had to choose make a vision card of one of our dreams. One of mine is to be as healthy as I can be and this art work is the result. I wrote on the little card Keep flying which is what the instructor Kathryn suggested in the class.
I combined it with another challenge from the onthewing ning group where we had to select some favourite writings from our favourite book. My favourite book would be the bible and one of my favourite passages is from the psalms.....Be still and know that I am God. This is my response.

Week 3 and 4 of online course

Dear friends, Week three and four of my online course was on "I am the key to change in my life" and I had to do vision cards that clearly stated the goal. I did "I am adventurous" "I am healthy".
Here is some art I put on the front of a book of adventurous activities to do which is written by Julia Cameron. It has all her artist date ideas in it.

Favourite numbers

Dear friends,
This art is a response to a challenge on the group artist prompts. We had to do some art for our favourite numbers and journal on the page. I love 5 and 8.

Core values

Dear friends, I've finished week two of my online course and it is about core values. Some of my core values are
God's will not mine, inner peace, self esteem, integrity, friendship, creativity, adventure, health and family not in that order.
Had to list some of the qualities I admire in my friends. They would be hope, encouragement, positiveness, helpful, friendly, faithful, inspiring and I have another 16 and I could still keep on going. I am blessed with some wonderful friends.
I made some little cards with my core values on and I keep them on my meditation table and meditate on one at a time.

Dear friends, I am doing an online course with Kathryn Antyr....check out her site.....
We had to find an image that was relaxation and serenity and I chose a lady blowing bubbles...such a relaxing thing to do. We then had to make some little cards with inspiring words on them... I chose "go with the flow", "one day at a time" "living in the moment" and also did a prompt card for my home to be calm and organized.
Kathryn asked what we do for relaxation.....I love being with my friends and family, resting in bed before the day begins, TV and videos and DVDs, going to the beach, walking and all my creativity activities like art, craft, photography, gardening and cooking. I have a lot of relaxing in my life looking at this list
I am working on lesson 2 today. I am quite behind but Kathryn said we can take as long as we like.
