Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

Year of Firsts - Week by Week

The inspiration of this "Year of Firsts".came from LuAnn Cahn and her book "I Dare Me" which chronicled her daily Year of Firsts. (Check here to my first post about this challenge).

This past week I decided to create a large canvas (16 x 20) using techniques I had learned in several courses. Although the result was not as I had envisioned, I enjoyed the process.

Putting on background papers

Adding Fluid acrylics

Then I used modeling paste, stencils, stamping and  glazing

I am not finished - but not sure where I want top take it. I will let it sit for awhile.

I completed one collage this week - for Journal 52.

Zen cards 
 I find these relaxing and fun to do. Here are just a few more I have done.


I created some red zen cards for a swap

I have completed a children's story and will be submitting it to Highlights for Children for their Holiday Fiction Contest. I continue to work on novellas - and work on different courses and challenges as well.

Have read a couple more books - see my growing list above.

I was final able to get on your blog without my virus software kicking me out. I love seeing your firsts. I hope you don't mind but I am going to put a link on my blog since you are doing the firsts too.

This is going to be an exciting year! I am having so much fun doing firsts. I hope you are getting as much happiness from it as I am.
