And the Winner is. . .

Well , we have a winner in the drawing for the "Just a Matter of Thyme" illustrated cookbook. None of my usual helpers were available to pick the name out of the hat, so I had the Random Number Generator select the lucky winner this time and her name is. . . . . . . BETH LEINTZ!
Congratulations Beth! Please email me your address so I can send out the prize to you. And thank you to all who entered ~ It was so much fun, I think we'll be doing this again soon.
I am starting a brand new art journal for the Journaling Without Fear Group and I began by creating a few background pages using watercolor paper and watercolor crayons. Below is my first entry featuring a favorite quotation.
You've all seen these vintage flashcards people are using in their artwork. Well, sweet Heidi over at Everyday Cookies at Sweet Woodruff Acres, came up with a little tutorial showing us how to make these little cuties for ourselves. What fun these are! ~ I've been dreaming up words for new flashcards all day long like sunshine, warmth, flower, robin, garden. . . .

Oh Jeanne, I LOVE those pages. They are great!

Your journal pages are great- I've never used watercolor crayons, but they look like fun.

I made some flash cards using Heidi's tutorial, too- but I haven't printed them yet. Thanks for reminding me!

Thanks Dede and Beth! It's been a while since I played with my watercolor crayons. It was lots of fun to work with an old medium again. I think I'm going to bring out my watercolor pencils next!
