Color My World

This is for DLP 2015- Wk 3 The theme is the Color Wheel.  I really had fun with this week’s prompt.

This is the close up of my bird (my personal monthly theme.) and a Claude Monet quote.

I had a tough time with the bird this time around. I had to do it twice because the first time I had the perspective all wrong. This is better, I hope. What do you think?

Bird, Bird, Bird. Bird is the word.


Sorry, that song just popped into my head as I started to type the title of this post.  As I mentioned in my last post, Birds are my theme for January.  Wonder what February will bring?

This is my DLP 2015–Wk 2 Journal page.

Beginnings And some Close-ups Beginnings - Bird Quote - Beginnings

The base layer of the journal page was gessoed, then colored with Prismacolor NuPastel that was mixed with Matte Medium. Then added a layer of acrylic paint in similar colors. A few stamps for some background texture. 

The image of the bird and the eggs in the nest were drawn with colored pencils and the nest was made of  newspaper strips. Colored the tree branch with Tombow watercolor markers.  It’s a true Mixed Media journal page.

DLP–2015 January and Wk 1

Creating a Monthly page is not part of DLP but since my journal has 12 more pages than what is needed for the weekly challenges, I thought I ‘d create a monthly page. 

This month has a theme outside of what we’re doing in DLP: Birds just because I love birds.   …I’ve also added a tab for the month. I cut a tab template out of a file folder and covered it with patterned paper, then stamped the month on it. Then glued it behind the page, because there it will be covered with the add in I use for the planner portion.

DLP 2015 - Month of Jan

The weekly page is this:

The DLP monthly theme is “blank pages”, meaning what to do when faced with a blank page. This weeks the theme is illustrated by covering the page with book papers. This is not new to me as I’ve been doing it for a while but it’s a favorite technique so I used them on my page.

Happy New Year Everyone

I hope you had a wonderful New Years eve celebration.  My husband and I went out to dinner at one of our favorite Mexican food places where I had a vegetarian combo along with a tasty margarita. Yum.

We came home and watched some TV together until Midnight. Then toasted in the New Year with some Sparkling Apple Cider.  Yes we are that exciting. ;-) haha

This is my last entry in my 2014 DLP Journal – Prompt - Begins with the first letter of your first name.  Since my name is Linda, I chose the word “Life”.

The quote is :

The most important things in life aren’t things. – Anthony J. D’Angelo
