I’ve been a couple of weeks absent due to the fact that I didn’t craft much so not much to show from my side, but I’m back.
And here is how my desk looks like right  now

A creative mess.

From left to right you can see:
A finished JAM (Journal About Me) page on top of my case of Posca pens with above the glitter paperpad I used for it.
Next to it the next page in progress, I used brushos for it and am in the process of cutting out stars.
Here is my finished page in all its glory.

The prompt was favorite quote and it had to glitter, shimmer and shine.

I think it does.

JAM 20 Angels

This week's JAM (Journal About Me) prompt is favorite/meaningful song and the challenge is to use a napkin.
Can you guess what my song is by looking at my inspiration "board"?

angel napkin, lyrics and hand carved angelwings stamp.
It is (as you already could read in the title) Angels from Robbie Williams, it is meaningful to me as it was our openingdans on our wedding 7.5 years ago.

We are at the letter J in the alpha/dictionary challenge over at The Craft Barn with the twist that we need to add a dragonfly.

J in the alphabet of happiness stands for Journey to new worlds, new possibilities by remaining open minded. Try to learn something new each day, and you'll grow.

I glued down a piece of a map and gave it a light wash with gesso.

Next I made a suitcase and added travel labels.

I typed out my definition and glued it to the back of the suitcase and added a dragonfly.

Yesterday it was Ascension day so we all had a day off and the weather was beautiful.
I wanted to craft as it was a while ago since I did anything, but didn’t want to sit inside with such nice weather, so I grabbed my brushes, paints and canvas and painted outside.

I actually don't have an easel, so I used my son's drawing board instead.

I followed the instructions of Flora Bowley's Wanderlust lesson on intuitive painting, it was so much fun.

Here is a picture of the progress the painting made

And here the “finished” painting.

I say finished but I’m thinking of adding some collage elements to it.
My husband sees a circus in it and now I do too, and the hearts are like a guirlande.
This painting is actually a joint effort together with my son because when he saw me painting he just needed to join in

he made the hearts

and in the right corner wrote 'lieve mama' which means sweet mum in the purple heart.

and he signed the canvas with both are names

Now I'm really really late with my entery for the alpha/dictionary challenge where the letter is s with the twist to use shells. I have had this page in my head for a week already but just finding the time to sit down and executing it was something else. Today I had to as it is the last day to enter.
I've created this beachpage.

The s in the alphabet of happiness stands for share
Share your talent, skils, knowledge and time with others. 
Everything that you invest in others will return to you many times over.
