More Artwork from my Strathmore Art Journal Class-Pink Sat.

These are the final - or almost final pages that I worked on after finishing the first one in the Strathmore Art Journal Workshop . I may work on these more, but this is how they look today.
 BE YOURSELF

"BREATHE"

Breathe is my word for the year. I am practicing trying to be more relaxed, less stressed and trying to learn to take care of myself. It is a process, but I feel it is a very important one.

I am connecting with Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. So hop on over there if you'd like to see more pink posts!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I cannot figure out how to delete the little icon. It says there should be a red x that pops up if you want to delete it, but I do not see one. How did you delete it and start over?

Did you take the workshop from Pam Carriker? I just love her work, but did not see the workshops until that one was over. I signed up for it anyway just to see how she worked. I signed up for the next workshop, but sorry I missed hers. I am planning on buying her book nextweek when it comes out.

Please stop by often, It will be good to get to know you.

Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Warm Wishes and Happy Valentine's Day, CindyLew

Hi Tricia,

Your art journal pages are really nice...I think that "breathe" should be my word of the year too. I have such a hard time relaxing as well as focusing so I think I'm the poster child for post menopausal women. hee hee But really...it's so true! I'm visiting for Pink Saturday...hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Hey Tricia,

To be honest I don't what flower that is in the heart image...my first thought was baby's breath but I'm not an expert on flowers either. I found the image at Tumblr.com...have you ever visited any of those blogs? Oh my goodness it's a whole nother universe over there. :0) Beautiful stuff being shared.

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

I finally went to my email and there was a link there that let me delete my icon. Go figure:-) I will go and see if I can still download the videos from Strathmore. I received mine today from FedEx, I am so excited. I purchased two of the big Watercolor 140lb Visual Journals. I am so happy. I am going to try and order 2 more of the small ones, they said they are on sale for so cheap I can't stand it. It shows they are like $7.00 each. I cannot even buy the paper for that, so I am off to the website when I get done here. I also purchased a Molskin Journal at the same time, but it is so big I am not sure what I will do with it, but very excited about that also. So all in all its been an interesting day.

My husband works out of town so I have to get all my pink stuff done early so we can do all our stuff on Saturdays because he leaves on Sunday, but its better than no job at all. The down side is I miss having him here all week, but the up side is I get to do my art even in the middle of the night if I want:-/

Have a blessed week.

Warm Regards, CindyLew

Great journal pages - it's lovely to see the whole process. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. Sorry I'm late, I was teaching yesterday (Saturday) and we've been out for Valentine's lunch today (Sunday) so only just started visiting! Happy Pink Weekend, and hugs from the UK.

First - thanks so much for the lovely and thoughtful comments on my blog :) Its truly appreciated.

Second - i love your work as well - the Breathe page really speaks to me, I look forward to seeing more on your journey - you've started amazingly!
I think i will also look into the Strathmore Workshop that is guiding you - i feel stuck and perhaps this is a good way to remedy that :)

Thanks again!!!
