Three Sketch Challenges & Some Art Journaling

Well I went cropping at the LSS last night and completed 3 sketch challenges!!

This first one is for Sketchy Thursdays 11.4.  I used Nikki Sivils Tree Love which I love love love!!!  I cut out and popped the line of trees and grass across the center of the page.  What a pain!  While I was doing it I wished the idea had never occurred to me.  But I love how it turned out.

Here is one more layout with Nikki Sivils Tree Love but the sketch is from Nuts About Sketches.  My BFF Theresa is a design team member there and I had yet to do one of their sketches.  What kind of friend am I? But this weeks sketch is a super cute single pager.  Lots of cutting and popping on this layout as well but not nearly as intricate.

This layout is for Sketch Challenge #34 over at Sketchabilities.  I used Sassafrass Lass Nerdy Bird.  The pictures are of Marin pretending to go to school.  She picked out her clothes herself (pajama bottoms) and she filled her backpack with toy bracelets, keys, perfume and a ring.

Lastly, here are some projects I finished for Marit's Mixed Emotions Art Journaling Class.
These were for the Loneliness prompt and the Joy prompt.  It's kind of sad that for the loneliness prompt I do a page about our dog Stain.  Stain has kind of taken a back seat since we've had kids.  But wherever the kids are, that's where you'll usually find him.  The joy project looks a lot like a scrapbook layout.  All it needs is a photo.  But I used some of my favorite paper and I love how the paper weeve turned out.
