This is another journal page using the week 4 session of Sharon Tomlinson's class. 'Finding the faces'

I did a layered background and pulled out images that I could see amongst the mess :) It's a very creative process and I hope you try it!
It was so fun and you'll know......deep down in your's YOURS! There's nobody's face shape or dress or hair that you're trying to recreate. It comes to you in pieces and it's a wonderful little adventure!

SO VERY FUN! Thanks Sharon for a fantastic class!!

Today there is a free ZUMBA class being offered to see if there is enough interest in our little town to start holding regular classes. I think it looks so fun! I hear it's a blast! I'm pretty sure I won't be able to keep up with the young girls, but I'm up for the challenge.

So, at 2:00 pm CST while you're relaxing with a book or your paint brushes, just imagine a 50 year old grandma gettin' her latin groove on. I know it will bring a chuckle to your day. If I can move afterwards, I'll be sure to report back in :)

God be with me!!!!!!!! LOL

How do like Zumba?
I love the Dream journals page. How fun.
You are not 2 days late Darla, you are right on time.
Thank you so much for coming over.
Your words touched my heart. You see, I see you as beautiful and want you to see that.
Renee told me this once
"I was taught the complete opposite; for us it is what is inside that matters, outside is genetics, but what do you the person bring to your life."
She is so wise.
Love and hugs.

Debbie said...

This is my new favorite of yours- you should think about recreating it on canvas! It is truly gorgeous with the compostion and the way the face, houses....everything works together so beautifully. I LOVE it!

I love how even with her eyes closed, she shows so much emotion. Beautiful! Did you survive Zumba? You are a braver soul than me.

Colleen said...

My sister does Zumba with her granddaughter and loves it! She's 67, so you will have no problem, silly!

Love your newest beauty!
