Blog Roll Problems

Maybe someone can help me. When I add new blogs to my blog roll there are some that don't appear on the blog. I can only view them while in dashboard. This happened before and I found how to fix it. Of course I can't remember how I did it. I have been checking blogger help, no luck yet.

Handy Work

These are so enjoyable to do. I used some henna art in them. It is amazing what a few little marks on some paper can add up to! Give it a try!! Let me know what you come up with! Have Fun!

Ready for the Beach?

Just a silly page. The base is a cereal box. The rest is part magazine pics, part acrylics & colored pencils. Her legs are fuzzy yarn pieces. Mine are like that sometimes!! I may go back and doodle some more on this page later. Who knows ?!

Is It Spring Yet?

This is another page in my recycled journal. I gessoed the page and added the scissors a while ago. I just recently added the girl and my bunny. Here's looking forward to spring!!!!

A Cheeze-it Page

This is a fun page from my recycled journal. This is done on a cheeze-it box. The "back" of the page has a recycled envelope for a pocket. This bunny rabbit has a knack of showing up in my art work. He first showed up on some canvas wall hangings I made for children's rooms. So sometimes he looks happy and innocent. Other times (not on items for children) he grins very mischievously.

I Was Hungry

These are two pages I did when ,yes I was hungry. I don't (didn't) have any pages using or about food in any of my journals. These pages just fell together. Not much thought or work required. It sure is weird how sometimes things just fall together and other times so much trial and error(or gesso) is required just to get part of a piece done.
Speaking of trial and error. I am learning how to use Photoshop Elements. I found some very helpful youtube videos. Oh yeah I learned how to put my name on photos. I'll have to do that with the next photos I post.

New Zentangle

I treated myself and bought a 2 pack of dual tip sharpie markers! I didn't realize, until I used my new markers, how bad my old ones were. I have a tendency to want to get every last little bit of use out of them. I am like that with my razors. Oh, is that tmi? New markers make doing these "doodles" so much easier and more fun. I hadn't used the dual tip markers before. It is much easier than dealing with 2 pens. I was watching Millande, on one of her youtube video's, use the dual tips. But then she makes everything look like it has a gentle flow to it.
