Where'd the Week Go???

I can't believe it's Friday. The week has zoomed by. I didn't get many things done that I planned on and a few things I hadn't planned on. I am keeping up with the NaNoJouMo challenge of journaling every day to a word. I'm working in my visual journal but doing more writing than usual. Yesterdays word
was quarter and here's what I came up with...

I guess I was thinking pink, kind of unusual for me, because I had finished the challenge from June at Dezinaworld. The challenge was hot pink and silver. Sadly, I didn't get it sent in in time. This week the challenge is song, dance and music. Thanks, June.

I've also been making Tattered Past hearts to decorate some of my artwork, my blog, and my etsy shop.
I'm really having fun with these.

And, last but not least is my Day One of the art everyday challenge. The word was Inception.

For those who are interested the supplies used in the artwork above are:
Quarter and Inception -- Caran d'ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons, magazine cutouts, rapidograph pen
Be Yourself -- Caran d'ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons, magazine cutout, ribbon, pink puff paint, gel pens, sticky note and marker
Hearts -- muslin, paint, do-dads, sticker letters and pillow ticking

So many challenges...so much to do...having so much fun.
