Subway Selfie Layout by Jen Matott

P1020510

 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!

Be Happy Layout by Jen Matott

P1020506

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.

VROOM Baby Layout by Tonya Gibbs

VROOMLayout_600

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!
