August heART day 6 and Art Journals Journeyl

It's Frida month at 
Art Journal Journey! 
I was so excited when I read this :) She has been one of my greatest inspirations as and artist. I love her work.  
So here is my first entry for the challenge. It's a sketch of Frida done in one of my journals using a Stabilo pencil on a textured background. The background presented more challenges than I anticipated but I got her done. 
So be sure to click on the button in my side bar to check out some of the other amazing art and check back through out the month.

I've also been working on more of the Inspiration Deck cards. Spraying the backs and adding the inspirational quote.. later I'll do at least one front side maybe two. It could be a long day. 
I am so not used to having all of this free art time and I'm loving it. It will be hard to go back to work when the back is operating correctly again. :-) 

Don't forget to check out the other artist at August heART also .

The random thought for today is....


  1. Wow.. your Frida Sketch is AMAZING!
    This deck of cards looks stunning as well!

    Thank you for joining Art Journal Journey Carol!

  2. Your sketch is very nice.The texture behind it makes it even more special.Love your inspiration deck card backgrounds.I should try it out!Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I like your Frida sketch. And the cards are really bright and pretty. Carol, I cannot get an email to go to you. I was offering a handmade card as a consolation prize on my giveaway. If you want one let me know at since I don't have your mailing address. Otherwise I will just assume you don't need consoling. :)

  4. I am so happy to see your beautiful Frida drawing, just wonderful, and am looking forward to seeing more of your Frida work. Love the cards, too- Hugs, Valerie

  5. drawing on a textured background is so very difficult and you have done an amazing job Carol, also love the multi-coloured cards. Hugs Annette x

  6. Love your Frida! She truly is an inspiration, especially to women (to my way of thinking, anyway). I, too, am participating in Art Journal Journey and should have my Frida posted soon.

    Thanks again for the August heART and for your creative spirit!
