Be Strong!
We are not here to play, to dream, to drift;
We have hard work to do and loads to lift;
Shun not the struggle-face it" 'tis God's gift.
Be Strong!
Say not, "the days are evil. Who's to blame?"
And fold the hands and acquiesce-oh, shame!
Stand up, speak out, and bravely, in God's name.
Be Strong!
It matters not how deep intrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day how long'
Faint not-fight on! Tomorrow comes the song.
~Maltbie Davenport Babcock

Altered CDs

Such a simple thing when it comes to art.
Why not decorate one home with their own art.

Altered Dominoes

This week over at ATCsforALL in the Zentangle Social group our challenge is altering a Domino. I made 3 turning them into magnets.

First  I started by sanding the back of the domino

Then I apply gesso to the sanded domino applying layers which I sand
making it smooth
Then I draw my design. Some use felt pens, some paint
since I was experimenting I tried using Micron Pens they worked great!
Once I am done and satisfy then I sealed mine with Diamond Glaze.
And, others use other sealers too, you just have to experiment, see
what works for you.


QUOTE OF THE DAY: It's Up to Us to Defeat Boredom

The amount of satisfaction you get from life depends largely on your own ingenuity,
People who wait around for life to supply their satisfaction usually find boredome instead.
~Dr. William Menninger


Zentangle Spring

Over at the MAD on Flickr we are to make a paper doll that represents Spring. The body Template is by Tottieu who graciously gave us all permission to use. Well here is my little Spring done in the Zentangle Style!
Lets start with the face.

in the Zentangle style
Now here are the shoes also done in the zentangle flowers
