This week I did get a pattern done. I have been playing around with my compass making mandalas. This week I was feeling the oranges and teals, so that's what I used to color it in.
I hope that you enjoy my play today. Now you go out and do something creative too.
I didn't manage to get a new pattern made for this week, although I have been playing around with making mandalas. It is a beautiful sunny day here is Soldotna, so I went out and took pictures of some mountains. These were taken between Soldotna and Kenai, for anyone familiar with the area. There are mountains to the west and the east of Soldotna that can be seen when it's clear. I hope that you enjoy these until I have time to photograph some more of my new art.
Have a great week,
I didn't manage to get a new pattern made for this week, but I did color in the one from last week. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color it in. It does take a while to fill in the design, but it is a nice relaxing process. I hope to have a new design to share next week.
I also finished a new Lifebook lesson. This page was done in my art journal. It has a lot of texture from gesso. Inside the heart pocket I have a tag decorated, in part, with some of my previous artwork. The heart is made out of kraft paper that protected my art table. I love to save that paper and use it again in projects.
I hope that you enjoy this view of my art week. Have a wonderful creative week yourself,
I was finally able to get back to Weekly Pattern Wednesday this week. I was unable to participate for a while because of my family's big move to Alaska. This week I made a kind of a mandala. I made basic sections and then filled them in with patterns. (Once I am able to find my compass I'll can make a fancier mandala.) I did have fun making all the patterns in each section. I haven't colored them in yet but I intend to work on that soon. Here is my mandala:
I took a photo first since it's too big for my scanner, and then I cleaned it up some in Photoshop.
I want to offer this pattern for you to download and color. I would love to see what you do with it too. Please share with me if you would like and personal use only.
Have a great week. I'll share my next journal page with you soon.
Life is slowly settling down into a normal pattern since my move. My kids are all at school this year, so I'm on my own during the day. It is a little lonely and much quieter. We are still in a small rental while we wait for our house to sell, so I can't unpack my whole studio yet. I did get some things out however and am getting back to art making little, by little. I started out with a Lifebook lesson. They are always inspiring and since I can follow a plan it is a nice way to ease back into drawing and painting. I'll probably keep on making these lessons for a while until I'm able to start something more ambitious. I still have plans for quilts in my head and in my inspiration book. These will have to come out sometime. I also have started to make patterns again and will hopefully have one ready to share next Wednesday.
Here is the page that I created for one of Tam's lessons.
I hope that I can inspire you to go out and be creative too.

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
Check out my husband's website. He is a writer and has written about our life and many other amusing stories.
