The cowardly shooting and death of the brave soldier, Frank Cirillo, guarding the unknown soldier’s tomb, the morning of Oct 22, 2014 has put the city of Ottawa in mourning. This is a tribute to Cpl Cirillo and others who die senseless deaths in these crazy times we call modern life…. Soldiers leave behind family, mothers, fathers, wives and children. How do we help them understand? How do we understand things that don’t make any sense? Sleep in peace Cpl Cirillo.
A little journal page created for the Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo Group. When I first read about this swap I was interested, I love wonky houses of all kinds. My houses are not only wonky but happy. The background is water colour crayons, the chimney smoke is an embossed stamp of flowers (just right for my happy houses) and a bit of trim added for whimsy.
October’s colour challenge at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio brought us a beautiful colour palette to play with. Autumn colours with a muted look to them which reminded me of many days just before Halloween when it is frosty but still loaded with wonderful warm hues and breezy whispers of the leaves in the trees. I added a little mask and two owls to bring in the Halloween season.
These little 4×4 Art cards, done for the Art For The Creative Mind Yahoo group, were so much fun to do. The background is metallic copper paint with a border of metallic blue paint and a matching alcohol ink. The copper is for the changing trees and the blue ink is for the bright blue skies surrounding the trees that appears in the Autumn. Both cards were drawn freehand so are a bit different. Once has something extra … can you spot it?
October’s journal page at The Art For the Creative Mind Yahoo group was all about following your dream. Dancing to my own music, to my own song has always been my dream. I try to do that at least a little bit each and every day. This journal page is my inner child and I added my grey hair. Although dancing these days is not as easy as it was when I was younger, it is in my dreams.
