hee, hee, hee!

Timeout for Art, cover for my art journal. Somehow my Gnome got turned around in his corner, it was a classic Kodak moment. It made me think of all the timeouts I "endured" as a kid. Five minutes is for-ever. Acrylic paint spatters, decopodged music tissue, flower punches, doodling.

Bannie photo. I don't think you can see the glitter accents on the flowers. I cut the flowers from coordinating paper.

Wonky scan. Fatty buttons. One of my friends calls me "RG" or "Running Goddess" and another asked me what my superhero moniker is so I came up with "Death Girl Running Goddess" because my alter-ego is ever so goth : .) I hope I don't have to change it to something like "Aquajoggingdeathgirlpowerwaternymph" because that is a mouthful.
Aren't the tiny graphics (owl, heart, circle, apple) just too cute?! They're rub-ons.

Disneyland 2007 layouts. They're 12X12 so I had to take pixs and crop (poorly) because I don't know how to stitch if I scanned 'em. The castle is the title page, the other two face each other. Yeah, I hand cut all the letters and the castle, which was lifted from a Euro-Disney Fantasyland pix on Google images. I had originally paper pieced Tink in a red outfit, to go with the color theme of the two facing pages, but I didn't like her expression. I ended up buying Jolee's Boutique stickers. I used chalk on the castle. The large Mickey icon heads are hand cut, the small ones on the castle are punched, as are the triangles & * The smallest icon heads are eyelets I bought @ Disneyland. The parens and the tiny titles in red/black/yellow are stickers.

I obviously can't decide what style I should follow, sloppy-grungy, cutesy, or graphic. I really like 'em all!!!

P.S. Ny - I tried doing the pastel challenge. I could only manage "brite" pastels.
