21 Secrets - Urban Layer Cake

My journal page for the 21 Secrets - Urban Layer Cake workshop by Tammy Garcia over at DaisyYellow.  I really love this technique and the results - grungy, colorful layers.

No Frills Prompt 20: Chaos

Tammy over at DaisyYellow posts weekly prompts to help us get our creative juices flowing. This week's prompt is "Chaos".  I was inspired by this word to post this since my "work and play space" has turned into a disaster area.  I was just beginning cleanup of the area when I read Tammy's prompt - so here you go - enjoy the Chaos.

21 Secrets - Abstract Adventure

Now that busy season is over I have time to begin playing with my art supplies and working on the 21 Secrets - Art Journal Workshop.  I discovered this workshop from following Tammy over at Daisy Yellow.  Tammy is teaching one of the workshops.

The first workshop that I am attending is Connie Hozvicka's Abstract Adventure.  Remember, I'm one of those analytical left brain types who has not exercised her artsy muscles in years, so I'm re-learning the process.

Here is the first page in my Fearless Art Journal:

I initially put too much paint on my palette so being that analytical type, who can't stand to waste paint, I used it to create these postcards for MailArt365.  It will be a little while before they go out as I put the paint on pretty thick so it's going to take a while for them to dry.

Due to demands at work I have been a little preoccupied and haven't posted all the wonderful mailart that I received recently. So, let's catch up.

Week #17 Challenge: 15 Minutes of Fame

This one was very difficult for me.  I taught myself how to Zentangle, using Rick and Maria's kit, books and all the wonderful websites, some of which are on my blogroll.

Here is what I managed to finish within the time frame.

Here is my final product.

I will be taking my first Zentangle® class on April 30, with a Certified Zentangle Teacher®.  I am really looking forward to all that I can learn from her.

Challenge #15: Love your Curves, Baby.

This week's challenge was, well, challenging.
Here are the results.

Although in all honesty...

 I am not completely satisfied with any of them.
