A new magazine and Heart Challenge #9

Look what I got :)
My favourite magazine :) 
 Today was the day that the He-Art Journal challenge page was due.
Here is the Assignment:
Today's NEW ASSIGNMENT is "Cut and Paste"....mainly, we've found there is a unique look to finding a cool "head" out there in the magazines and then drawing your own version of the body.

Now I shared with you yesterday, that these kind of freak me out.
There is just something about cutting a head off and then drawing a body to go with it.
So I figured this assignment is going to freak me out....then I will freak them out, lol.
So here is my page ;)

Becky was on the ball with this one, lol. I did this late last night.
I was going to change my mind and make a sweet page with my daughters faces and draw their bodies as cute little angels.
But when my daughters saw this in the morning, they thought it was cool and told me to submit it, love my girls.
 I made the sky with my distress inks.
Drew the grass with just flicks of my Copic markers.
Fence is a border punch.
Painted some with my acrylic paints and sharpie markers.
Stamped and drew the trees.
This is my favourite page. We watch and love "Walking Dead" and this is where this image came from.
I have been having trouble uploading my photos to this challenge site. It is so frustrating.
But when I contacted them, she told me to just send it to her through email. Bet she was surprised when she opened this one, lol.
Another scary thing that happened to me today.
I went to the dentist and had to get a filling. So I needed freezing.
Not only did my lip get frozen, so did my cheek, half my nose and under my eye.
I have never had that happen before. Hubby gets that all the time he gets freezing, but I have never had that happen before, and hope it doesn't happen again.

Thankful Thursday:
Impossible Pie....teehee, my treat I made tonight ;)
Chatting with a friend :)
Ashley putting her shoes away so I don't fall down the stairs

    You needed freezing? That is a new one. Never heard it called that. Like Amy said, we call it numb.

  14. Oh my gosh.. LOVE the journal pages you've made here!! How much FUN this had to be as you were working on it.. Oh, but late at night, did you say? I think I would have kept hearing strange noises if I had been working on something like this late at night! Nope, I'm pretty sure this would be a DAYTIME project for me! (0; I've done a couple of journal pages over the week, and really had fun with them! In fact I just got my first Aqua Marker.. just one, in black, but I think I'm IN LOVE!!! I'm getting more just as soon as I CAN!... Have a great weekend! ~tina

  15. Hi Tracy... Holy Crap girl, that page is freaky cool! I'm not so much into zombies, but do love vamps/werewolves/and other supernatural shows, so I can understand the fascination! Also, thanks for the blog award, sorry it's been awhile since I've blogged and have had hella stress lately, but I really do appreciate it! Hope you have a great weekend...and yuck with the dentist experience, hope that didn't last long. :)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
