NaNoJouMo and the Cupcake House

November is National Journal Every Day Month or NaNoJouMo.  I have committed to doing something in my art journal every day for the whole month!  Hmmmmm.....can I do it? So far, so good! Here's my page from today:

 I love that quote! It's on a banner hanging right inside my friend's house and it really struck me. The picture is of my Buddha statue that I have in my house. 

The Cupcake House is my submission for the Cloth Paper Scissors reader challenge "All Buttoned Up".  It's based on a picture that my daughter and I did together one morning.  It's acrylic paint on canvas for the background. The house is pieced together out of fabric scraps that I fused onto the background and outlined with dimensional paint.  The cherry, the sun, the flowers, and the doorknob are all buttons from my stash! It was so much fun to do and my daughter can't wait to have it in her room!  Let's hope it's accepted so she has to wait! 

I hope everyone has a beautiful day!

  1. That cupcake house is adorable! What a fun idea. And I LOVE the dalai lama quote and page. You've got me thinking i need to pull out my old journals where i wrote down inspiring words and create a journal spread for them.
