Rain Soothes My Soul

Rainy days and almost summer? I do like the summer but it gets really hot here and by the end I will be yearning for the rain. How many 112* days can you take? So I wanted to share this with you prior to getting into full swing of summer. Here is my first attempt at a slide show. I took pictures from start to finish and put them together. I used a spray bottle with water to create the drip affects for the backgrounds. Recycled paint scraps and cut the dress and umbrella from it. Then I used dictionary pages for her body and face painting them. I kept this mixed media piece pretty simple. The quote is "Rain showers my spirit and waters my soul. " ~Emily Logan Decens~ And now I am finding my way with technology. I want to do more ~Let me know how you like it.

Adam Lambert take your "Rocker Boots Rock On"

Rocker Journal Pages~

All you American Idol fans ~ No ~
Adam Lambert did not

But you know he is going to be a superstar!

All ready all the video's he has made other than small time pre idol one's are being pulled off by the owners such as Twentieth Century Fox Corporation off of You Tube and elsewhere!

Maybe losing was a good thing for him. He won't be bound for a year by American Idol and all their terms.

I don't by any means think his losing is a good-bye but more like a hello.

Congratulations to him and his varied style. He is a true performer!

Lulu's Cherry Pie

I am sometimes influenced by media.

This journal page was inspired by the movie the "Waitress" 2007.

I learned how to make pies and bake from my

If I could capture more time

Time is passing so quickly these days and today there is another sign of that. My youngest daughter Samantha is turning 7 years old today! Such excitement and anticipation for what that will bring you can see it in her eyes. I struggle with time. Time passing, time management, lost time, past times and.... What I should be doing verses what I want to be doing. I am really trying to be more in the moment lately! Hoping that will help me on my journey with time. I have been working on a painting inspired by roses from my garden. Snip its until done. So until next time....Have a lovely day.
