Stop thinking so much. . .

We've gotten a lot of snow in the past few days here in KY.  In fact, yesterday was declared a State of Emergency by the governor.  School was cancelled for Caleb from Wednesday - Friday and we've been hunkered in the house as a family for the past couple of days.  The board games have been dug out, goofy television has been watched and there has been a lot of laughter.  Snow days ARE good days!

But I think I touched it.

I used masking tape in my journal while painting these flowers and was so excited to see if it worked that I removed the tape too soon!  Then I spent the next several layers having to be careful not to go outside my crisp edges.  
NOTE TO SELF:  Leave the tape until finished with the page!

Pam Garrison inspired...

Pam Garrison has a class on Creativebug called Creative Sketching.  These are my exercises from Part 1.  Neither of them look much like Pam's - apparently, I am too structured and uptight for that.  LOL  
It was fun using lots of colors and pen work - I prefer the one that is more earth colored - probably because it is the calmer one.  I do love my neutrals. . .
