Wanderrlust2022 Practice Pages

I am really looking forward to Wanderlust2022 (#wanderlust22class).  I had a bit of time today so did a few of the warm up classes.  Both of the journal pages I did also fit Erika's Let Face It! theme at **Art*Journal*Journey. 

First, I did a practice page after watching Composition Building with Kasia Avery.  My daughter had accidently printed 10 copies of this picture so I practiced with it. 

Next, I tried a warm up with Jerney Marisha.  It is a hot mess but it was partially drawn with my left hand - lol.  
Hope you are having a wonderful New Years weekend!


  1. That's a great page with your daughter and grandson Nancy. You really created a great background to frame that photo. And I don't think your face sketch is a hot mess at all. Faces are scary I think. I like how didn't color everything also. These are both perfect for AJJ so thanks for sharing with us and joining in. I hope the new year is going well for you so far. Hugs-Erika

  2. your practice page is gorgeous. Wonderful way to frame the photos ♥

  3. Two fabulous pages Nancy, a lovely photo of your daughter and great drawing.
    Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year.

  4. Gorgeous creative journal page and the face is drawn fabulously
    happy new year, hugs, Elke

  5. I LOVe both of your pieces, especially the face, it's wonderful, so craggy and full of interest. Have a great day, Nancy, take care, and thanks for joining us at AJJ, much appreciated. Hugs, Valerie

  6. Wonderful journal pages Nancy and a lovely family photo.
    Thank you for linking to Erika's theme at AJJ.
    New Year wishes to you and your family.

  7. Wonderful pieces of art Nancy! I love them both!

  8. A beautiful family photo and a charming page from it.
    What a fun man drawing , love it 🤩
    I wish you health, joy and blessings in 2022 💖👍

  9. What a fabulous portrait you drew with the non dominant hand. I am struggling with my thumb on my dominant hand but finding it difficult doing anything with my left hand (non dominant). I doubt I could do anything remotely resembling a face - I am so impressed with yours.
    I love the first page in your journal. The drips look wonderful and are all you need as a background. A really lovely page which I would be proud of were it mine.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  10. Fabulous. I love the scrapbook-esque page as much as the drawing. Different styles of face but both beautiful

  12. Wow Nancy! I haven't started on Wanderlust 22 yet - still going through the introduction which is little like last years. I love this page and your sketch looks fabulous. Hugs,Chrisx

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
