Copic Markers - And a Goodbye Song to my Friend Marilouise

I have never been a fan of Markers. Just did not like them.  But I took Jane Davenports Class. Supplies Me.  I loved it. I learned so much about pencils, markers and acrylics that I didn't even know as far as brands. Copic Markers.  Ahhhhhhh I am soooooo in love with my new Copic Markers!!!! I could sing!!!!
Especially if you Journal you need to get these pens.  
Really if you are looking for a class that will teach you about supplies and what they do you have to take this class. I would recommend it to anyone. 

These are just a couple of samples of journal pages using Copic pens

It is a very sad day for me I have lost a friend of mine this weekend. Very unexpectantly. I was just talking to her on Tuesday at lunch.  We were talking about how only certain people can get away with short hair like hers. She had spiky red hair. And she looked fantastic. She had a smile that could light up a room. And she just had a special energy about her.  She loved her daughter Sarah and her Royal Hockey Team. I just can't quite get a grasp on it yet.    
She has touched so many lives, She will be missed.
I know she is surrounded by love.....
We both had a special love for Brandi Carlile
Here's to you Marilouise with love....

Say Hello to Happiness

I really think that you choose to be happy or you don't.  Things can make you sad and circumstances happen, but you can choose to dwell on it. 
Or Just feel it and let it go.

I know at one time I thought " If I get this house or this car or  this job or wait until i loose the weight and then I will be happy" It never comes.  You are always chasing it. You get these things and you find out your still not happy.  
You have to invite happiness in.
 It is inside you!
You choose it!
So oooo" Say Hello to Happiness"
It's in there. I know you can find it.
Choose it!

Don't forget to visit the people at Paint Party Friday!  They always make me happy!!!

Random Art Journal Pages.

Some of you may remember the journal I talked about that I bought at the Fish Market in Seattle.

Here are some of the pages in the journal

I have had so many journals through the years.  Watercolor Journals,  Portrait Journals, Big Moleskins, Little Moleskins.   And I still have not found the ultimate journal yet!!!  Still searching .    

Anyway these are some of my pages.

I think having an art journal is so important.  Just trying out new ideas.  Seeing what

works and what doesn't.  They are a learning tool.

Everyone get your Journals out and start learning!

Only way you get better is by making the mistakes.

 You can see how it is piling. (Am I spelling that right?)

Collaged on paper. I think that is what I will have to do with this journal from now on the paper is too flimsy.

Just some ink (Watercolor seeped through from other side)

Mixed Media (acrylic,watercolor,markers) Just playing.


But I had such high hopes.  It was so pretty!!!
Oh Well, I will make it work!

Happy PPF everyone!!! Come and visit the other wonderful artist and look at their wonderful work.  I am always inspired every week.
There are so many people now it is so hard to get to everyone every week.
