Challenge # 161, journal pages and of course, my inchie!

   Oh what a wonderful leisurely day!  (It is my spring break)  So today I spent time tangling - of course - and then worked on 2 of the 3 journal pages I am behind in.  Challenge 161 was to use the tangle quandary.  I played around with it some in my sketch book when I first discovered it a while back, but it didn't catch with me.  Still doesn't really.  I found viewing Ellen Wolter's video on how to draw quandary very helpful.  All of her videos are.
      With school work and such, I had gotten very behind in my pages for Journal 52 - an on-line journal group.  I love this group as it frequently makes me reach outside my comfort zone.  I was three pages behind - now only 2.  Week 11's prompt was to do something with stars.  I had several ideas but when I saw some scrapbook paper with stars on it, my mind settled pretty quick.  I did add a few more stars to the paper with gold and silver paint pens.  Very simple but I really like it.
Week 11
     I am a very linear thinker - make that an extreme linear thinker.  Week 12's prompt was to do a page about a day in your life.  Then week 13 came out and that was to do the prompt "How does your garden grow?".  My mind was saying as I pulled out the supplies to do the pages, first we do 11, then we do 12 and then 13.  But I had an idea for 13.  I don't for 12.   You have no idea how hard it was for me to leap ahead and not do them in order.  Okay, I know that sounds ridiculous and I get some teasing about my organized thinking, but it was hard.  Maybe tomorrow I will work on week 12 so I can feel complete, lol.
week 13
         Every Inchie Monday's word was game.  I had some scrabble letters that were used on a scrapbook page.  Luckily they fit just perfectly!
 


Thanks for dropping by.  Please leave me some sunshine!  I am actually getting to go around and do some commenting this week.  Yahoo!  Have a great, sunshiny week!

  1. Cathy, I love your Tile and your other work. Nice job on the Inchie. I don't know if I'll have time to do one this week. Anyway, thank you for the reference to Ellen Wolter's you tube videos. I had know idea she made those. They look awesome! I'll have to use them as a referral from now on. I didn't realize when I did my step out for 'Quandary' that anyone else had use the flower method. But they are a little different. But thanks again for the referral to her videos. Looks like they will be very helpful!! :0) Share Humanity

  6. What a great idea to use Scrabble tiles for the Inchie! I also like all of your Journal 52 pages, especially the little girl grabbing a star. Your Quandary came out nicely too.

  13. I really love your journal pages. I really want to join in on that. I am the same way and always want to go in order, but sometimes you just have to step outside of the plan... I guess thats part of creativity, right? Your inchie is GREAT. SO cute. I love the scrabble letters.
