#7 Tribute to Granny

Autumn's Prompt for this week is Memories, but mine is more of a Tribute.

Every summer for a few short weeks since I was old enough to remember, I was blessed to spend valuable precious time with my Crazy Granny. She really wasn't crazy and never minded that we all called her Granny....she loved it, it was just her nature. She was a free spirit and her inspiration for all things creative was multi layered.
I truelly believe of all the influences in my life, my Crazy Granny planted many creating seeds....some I am still discovering.

Revival Journal #6 Beginning

Autumn's Prompt for this week is 'Beginnings'.
This was a tuff one to define as to how it relates to my Revival.....
At first I was going to go with an Apprentice, as in, where skills are learned by the aid of experts at the beginning of their pilgrimage or specialty. Well, I could still do Beginning as long as I try something new that challenges me a bit. Here is what I came up with. I turned my journal sideways for this bookmark where this Beginning starts in my journal.

#5 My PLAN

Autumn's Prompt for this week is Plan/Repair, to focus on an area of need and ways can you find to repair or solve this problem. Well....hmm. Since I have more than one and this should relate to my Revival, I decided to explain my three A's.
Adapt, Adjust and Apply.
I think I have been doing this all my life really, but I feel it really applies to the way I approach any art project.
So with this spread, I got out the paint and played with some techniques. I will be adding a peach Library card that I will use to list all the things I would like to try....hope there is enough room.

Deep Within #4

Yesterday I worked on the prompt for this week and I really had to give this some Deep thought as to how it relates to my Revival.

Well, it involved alot of writing.

I wanted to go deep as in dimensional too, so I added one of those folded mini accordian deals (don't know what to call it)but it sure gave me more room even though I had to type it to get it all to fit. This was a enlightening prompt for me and I can't wait to see what next week brings....thanks again Autumn!
