September's Kill that Kit!

Yeah finally got to do a layout from my kit! I chose the Use Your Words Challenge: Sweet to kill my kit.  I also scraplifted one of the layouts from Carol .My word I had to use was SMILES when you see the photo you will see why. MY daughters loves bright colors and this will be perfect for her scrapbook. I tried to have it read masculine with touches of girly . I got to use a little of everything from my kit and that makes me smile.

First Full Journal Page

Yes it has been a long month didn't get to craft much at ALL!
But yesterday one of the artist (Willowing) I follow shared a little bit of what she is struggling with. Then gave her answers that were helping her cope. I heard the message.  Dede (Inkwell) on her upstream showed us what mind mapping is and how it can help you get your creative juices flowing . I will be using this method (because I struggle with not knowing what to draw) .That saying I don't know what to draw (create ) is not an excuse (Or at least not a good one). So I bought my first cranson xl multi media book O yeah. I can not let fear stop me .I know that I am not good and need a lot of practice. Not just watch but also do . There is so much out there if you just take the risk .So I am sharing my first journal page, the forth girl I have ever drawn. So go easy .

Yes I see she is crooked LOL

I used acrylic paints and gelatos(first time using them) in the background  and colored the face with pencils.
also I follow kat and Mystele . Please check them out I have learn so much from them(Not the crooked face method).
