Playing with my food and practicing my letters…..

 

Woo Hoo….for whatever reason, I have been on a bit of a roll this week!  A creative binge, shall we say!

I’ve been playing with my produce, as I bring it in from the garden, like this….

My birthday was this week and I received two dozen fresh from the farm organic eggs…..photo and journaling worthy!

Played with flowers, watercolor and lettering……..

IMG_2743None of this is fine art but all of it was fun, made me think, has given me the opportunity to practice and develop some art skills that I am trying to build and each piece has made me want to do more!  That’s the reward!

Since I have been art journaling everyday, I think I should link to Julie Balzer's Art Journal Everyday Linky party.  Come with me to visit.

Goodness, you ARE on a roll. Must be because it's your birthday (week). Happy belated.

I would take 2 doz organic eggs any day over roses. What a thoughtful gift for the woman who has it all (grin).
