Hello Sun

Actually drew a thing last night on my computer!  Yay me!  And happy early memorial day weekend to those in the USA! :D

Words to keep me going

Some motivational words for this week.

Art Journal

 I don't feel like I've been very artistic the last few months. Not as much as I have been in the past anyway. So I've been trying to get back into the groove with my paints and watercolors. I've been working on my brush lettering and accents lately. I've noticed with my paints and digital art I like to use really bright, bold colors, where as with the watercolors I've been using very soft, pastel colors. The artist loft set I have doesn't seem to have any really bright / bold colors though. :I
Next is to try to get back into creating more digital art. :D

Handmade booklets

Made a few more little booklets. I really need to figure out what I want to use them for. They're starting to accumulate. 😬 I think I need to get a midori and start using these In it somehow. ‪#‎handmadebooks‬ ‪#‎somethingtodo‬ ‪#‎cutebooks‬ ‪#‎midoriinserts‬

Just some random stuff...

Thursday Inspiration.
"Be more awesome than a chicken riding an umbrella with an alligator."
I like to think I'm that awesome.  ;) 
The sticker is from the Darice dollar packs available at Michael's.  I seem to buy a new set every time I go in!

 Weekend quotes in my new striped notebook to keep me going this week.  I think I may make this my quote book.  It currently is a catchall list book but I really adding some of my favorite quotes to it.

I have a library book I need to read, so I thought some reading/book quotes might inspire me. 

I keep seeing all of these cute paper clips people have made, so I made a couple the other night and added this little bow one to my a5 planner and it matches everything perfectly. I ended up accidentally touching the scalding hot glue to my thumb and finger as I was holding it and almost dropped it and grabbed it with my fingers instead of letting it fall, so that wasn't fun.  Thankfully it didn't leave any permanent damage!
 The bow came from michaels dollar fifty area (from awhile ago) and the pens came from target. The teal one was from the dollar spot trio set (all different colors) that is currently out and the green one is a Yoobi pen, which also came in a set of three, although they were all the same color. I absolutely love the Yoobi pens. I bought two types and these were my favorite. They're very smooth and write amazingly. They can smear so you have to let them dry just a bit but I still love them. Still haven't figured out what to do with this little booklet I made either. I added a sticker from my freckled fawn package I got along with some washi tape but that's as far as I've gotten so far. :/
