Art overload

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Day 17

Today we didnt have to be up early and off somewhere, we could sleep in! Did this happen...
The boys didnt wake me, the alarms werent set..but I woke at my normal time...could I go back to sleep...NO! Go figure...
John got to work on my brakes as well as trying to sort out our network problems (some men can multi task *grin*).
I got the housework all done early and set to finishing of layouts and art journal pages. Had to drop Josh of at a birthday party, then go pick him up, but overall had a productive day. As promised here are all my creations from the last couple of days...

This weeks One Little Word was 'MY' I had planned on doing a layout about my job as a mum, but my printer is out of ink so couldn't print out the journaling, so instaed I went with My 3 boys.

Ali E put out a challenge in her newsletter to do a layout using her prompt '20 things', thought about this one for awhile and in the end chose 20 places I would like to visit.

Sketches Aussie style gave us a fantastic sketch by the talented Melissa Goodsell, this is my version of it.

Now on to some art journal pages..
This one for the KSK art journal The theme 'Wings'. Had a bit of fun with this, finally using some of the yummy material Kylie gave me, gold paint, glitter and fibre and words and images from magazines.

This one was a challenge set by my son, 'do one on your hands with orange mummy' so I did. The doodling was so much fun!

I know this post didnt make it before midnight but I havent been to bed so to me its still sunday and day 17!
