I hope you all enjoy this new autumn day :) And here with you again Olga Kovalchuk to share with you my autumn inspiration. I hope you will like my new creation and I also hope that my tutorial will be interesting and inspiring for you.
I love nature very much and I always find a great inspiration when I go for a walk in the wood. Usually I find in the wood very beautiful things that I can use in my creations :) Some of this pretty nature gifts you can see at my new card :)

As much as I love dressing up for Halloween, I love dressing up to educate my students in my art classes! I went as a Day of the Dead Mexican Sugar Skull last Halloween. I painted my face and created a headband of blossoms to celebrate not only our Halloween holiday but also the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. I love the meaning behind their celebration... to honor those that have passed before us. To remember and celebrate our loved one's lives. A couple days of dancing, eating, singing, parades, and family sounds like a great way to remember our heritage. While I am not Mexican, I can appreciate a holiday that celebrates the life of others even while they have died. Keeping their memory and accomplishments alive is part of the remembering!

I love a good selfie once in awhile but I hate the silly faces people make. I just had to take one when I was in the subway in New York City a couple years ago for an Art Education Association Conference. The NAEA conference travels around each year to a different city. That year, it was only 5 hours from me! I had to go! So, some fellow art teachers and I traveled there and stayed for 4 days. We attended workshops by day (I even presented one on Visual Journaling) and explored the museums, landmarks, and shops by evening!
Riding the subway after a fun night out on the town led to some silly selfies. Each of us took our own selfies making that signature "duck face" just to be funny. So, this page is about that memory!

Do you have a child who just loves art? Young children love to make messes and create with wild abandon. I often sit with my kids and enjoy watching them just discover what the colors will do. My son doesn't worry about what his work looks like too much. This day he was just having a great time creating colors and adding water! Sometimes I have to remember to be more like that and not worry too much about placement, color choice and just play!
I took this fun printed paper by Studio Calico and scribbled all over it with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Color Pencils.
I wanted to mimic the fun scribbling in my son's artwork.

Hi everyone, today I wanted to share with you a masculine baby layout of my nephew, Gage. This photo was taken a month before his 2nd birthday. I watched him play in the floor forever with these little cars. In true "BOY" fashion, you could hear him making "VROOOOOOOOM" noises as he swung them around on the carpet. SO STINK'N CUT!
