Art Journal Journey ans Paint Part Friday

There are weeks that go by smoothly and then there are those that don't. Let's just say it's good that this week is over. 
There was art that was done this week though :0) 
 I'm doing the 
Colour Me Positive Art Journal Challenge
This is my piece for the first week. 
Gratitude was the theme.
The second piece I have is for 
Art Journal Journey 
where the theme this month is 
Winter Wonderland.
I really don't know if this one is really finished because as the week got frustrating I lost the urge to work on it more. So we'll see if I get back to it or leave it as is. 
The Jack Rabbits were inspired by photos and video's shared by Rita at
They play outside of her patio doors. The bison page is from one of my old calender's of National Parks . This is in the Yellowstone park... my all time favorite park ♥♥♥♥
Some Random Thoughts for Today

T Stands for Tuesday

Hello again my Tuesday Friends!
Here we are in a brand new year already. 
I don't do New Year Resolutions but I do choose a Guide word for the new year. 
This year I have chosen 
I have this really terrible habit of starting things and never finishing them :( So this year I am going to try really hard to break that habit...IF I CAN :/ 
I am having a four day weekend right now and it's been a creative one. 
I started three new journals.... well I actually just did the covers for them..
I haven't decided what to do with the mini one yet so it only has a base coat.  
Then I decided I would work on one of my unfinished projects. 
I have a round cheese box that I sprayed a long while back and then didn't do anything else with it. 
Since the husband was in the mood to do a marathon rerun of  "The Sapranos" it was the perfect chance to work on the box with some Zen-Doodles. 
I forgot to take a picture of the box before I started. At least I hadn't done much when I remembered. :) 
At this point I thought I was done ..but then decided to add dots ..
...and it was done and my fingers were cramped :) 
This morning I decide to to put a gloss coat on it and with out thinking used the brush on instead of spraying. 
You guessed it I'm sure the white ink started smearing ~*#~ So I dabbed off as much of the clear coat that had the smeary stuff and let it dry. 
So then I started going over it with a paint pen. Even with the extra fine tip it wasn't as nice as the original but I think I salvaged the piece...
Not all of the original white was ruined so I think I am going to leave it like it is with the two different tones of white.
Here's a view of the side of the box.
Here it is again with my trusty cup of coffee..which I should have drank more of before I started today :) 
So that's is what is happening  in my world this week . Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other Tuesday Folks. Just click on the Blue Teapot on my sidebar.
