Friday Art: Autumn Smile (closeup), Acrylic on Dylusions Journal

Closeup of "Autumn Smile", a 12 Pages project, kit based art journaling classes with Amy Shulke |

Happy Friday!

Here's a little taste of fall to get you into the mood for chilly nights, football, and trying to decide if there are enough leaves down to make it worth raking.

Yes, I have a 60 year old Box Elder tree which is already shedding golden yellow teardrops onto my front lawn. It's officially fall in my small corner of Michigan.

This is a closeup of my latest art journaling kit in the 12 Pages class series. No drawing skills necessary to take this class, students just sit back and enjoy playing with color.

Make some time for craftiness this weekend!

The world always feels a little better and looks a little brighter when you can color and paint.
