Art Supply Block

I love this block! All the projects are done on pieces of 2x4's. This is the last block project (#6) from Junelle Jacobson's "Saturday Morning Favorite Block" online class.  These six Saturday morning classes have been a delightful way to spend a weekend early morning.  I am already signed up for "Farmer's Market" class she is doing in July!

I have been thinking about mothers and daughters and their relationships this week.  As I look back and think about my mother and all the things she did for me, I am merely a reflection of her as I mother to my own daughter and son.  With out her love and example through the decades, I could not be the mother I am today.  My Mom still thinks about me long before I slow down to think about her, including special occasions like this weekend.  My mom sent me a card with some spending money before I even got to a store to pick out a card for her.  But then I realize that I am just following her example because I to am always thinking and doing for the two who come after me.  I guess that defines a good mother... putting your children, their needs, desires, and well being above your own.  I love you momma....Happy Mother's Day!

In my journal this week...

 Her face was a sketch I did in a sketch book.  I copied her and colored her in with markers and colored pencils and Pitt pen.  I cut out her little face and glued it down onto a gelli printed tip-in page.  Finished her out by adding bits and pieces of gelli printed scraps, white correction pen, and smudged charcoal.
I 've been on a bird kick since Junelle's class last weekend!  I used only things that were in my journaling travel bag to do this collage on a gelli printed tip-in.
