Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 24

Hello!  I'm so happy to be playing along with this challenge. CC3 challenge 24 is all about the Remnant Rub Resist.  You can play along too from your own copy of Compendium of Curiosities volume III on page 51.   All of the information and inspiration for CC3C can be found at Linda Ledbetters blog here.

I'm starting a new art journal using one of the Dylusions small journals from Ranger.  It is going to be the perfect place for me to record the new healthy living journey my husband and I are taking.   Plus it will be great fun to practice my backgrounds and journal pages.  We are focusing on heart healthy foods and exercises so I wanted a place to keep recipies, suggestions and inspiration. The Mediterranean diet is one area we are exploring so I'm going to keep the main colors in blue, greens, and white. 

I used the Remant Rub Resist on the inside cover.  What a fun technique!  Quick and easy too. 

Love the blues and greens with the pop of white. This will provide inspiration every time I open the book.

As with every challenge Linda and the oh so inspirational curiosity crew will select a winner who will receive a bunch of Tim Holtz goodies courtesy of Tim and Mario.  Challenge 24 is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique who will provide a gift certificate to one lucky winner.  Check out the website here.

All are welcome to join in these challenges. If you haven't yet I encourage you to join us. Be sure to stop by the blog to check out all the great art from the Curiosity Crew and those playing along. 

Be sure to stop by my blog to check out the progress on my healthy journey journal. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy Creating!

Hugs, Sharon

Pinterest Blast

Happy Saturday!

Do you pin?  Love to makes boards on Pinterest?  Me too!  Occasionally I will search a topic and do a blast of pinning. Just pinning as each photo catches my eye. Not really putting much thought into it. Going with my gut. This morning it was all about Mediterranean Moods and Styles. See the menu options over to the right?  There is a link to my Pinterest page. You can check out my latest pins and more. 

Why Mediterranean you ask?  Well hubby and I have been seeing articles lately on the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. After some coffee fueled discussion this morning I started making some notes. After I got to my seventh page from a tiny note pad it dawned on me I could write all this in a small journal as a reference and do some fun mediterranean style backgrounds. Thus the Mediterranean Moods Pin board was born. I'll be posting color and style ideas as well as recipies on the board and the ones I most want to reference in my journal.   Looking forward to combining health and cooking with art!

What would you blast on Pinterest?

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great weekend. Happy creating, and pinning!

Hugs, Sharon
