I’ve been busy lately but it’s a very happy kind of busy! I managed to create SIX digital projects in the last week. Yesterday I made three cards and one paper layout, and today I sewed two pair of pajama pants. I love being creative! It puts a smile on my face and lots of joy in my heart. I’m going to post the digital layouts on this post, and then later I’ll come back to post pajama photos and paper pages. Here goes…
I really love Elle's My Dear paper line. It was perfect to scrap an important quote to remember in relation to my ten year old. I had the perfect photo too because I took her outside a few days ago and we had a really fun photo shoot. (I love it when that happens!)

I'm loving Photoshop Friday in 2012! This is my take on the "Adding Grunge to A Journaling Block" episode. I loved Jessica's design so I didn't change too much. I needed more journaling space so I used a bigger brush and I changed the color of the title.
This Digital Art Journaling page is based on the prompt Goals/Desires. I chose this quote because I really liked the part that said, "It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream." My goal is to dream big and work at achieving my goals and desires. If I don't succeed, that's okay. Basically, I'm giving myself permission to dream as big as I can imagine. Who knows what will happen?
This is my take on the friend prompt in Jessica Sprague's Digital Art Journaling class. I have this amazing friend who always understands where I'm coming from and she's never judgmental. She is such a treasure to me, so I chose this quote to reflect our quirky (FUN!) friendship.
I've been working on incorporating bits of my handwriting and art work into the digital art journaling pages I've been doing in the Digital Art Journaling class. I painted the "journey" word art, and then scanned it in to use as a brush.
I seriously need more hours in the day because I am LOVING this class. I find myself dreaming of page ideas. LOL The woman standing on top of the world was in a dream about a journey. See? I'm art journaling in my sleep now!
When I think about who I am on the inside, I'm much more than a housewife that does dishes, irons, vacuums, and takes care of the kids all day. Inside, I'm an artist and a creative person. I'd much prefer to be known as a domestic goddess!
I made the word art and some of the journaling on this page myself. I used watercolors for the swirled brushes, and art pastels to make the "domestic goddess" portion of the title. I'm thinking that I may journal on paper a bit too. I had to borrow my daughter's watercolors just so I could play and scan things in.
The household images were from The Graphic Fairy website. I converted them into brushes and stamped them on the background. Then I changed the mode to overlay and did a bit of blending with Nancie's watercolor brushes.
* I’ll be back soon with more layouts, an update on how this kids are doing in school, and pajama pant pictures. Also, you’ll want to stick around because there’s another free template coming soon!
