My Art Journal: Tyggereye Art Love prompts 4,5 & 6

Prompt #4: Under Control
I have been pondering this page for weeks. I had an epiphany before bed time Wednesday night and decided to create a pundle of the prompt. I made this first thing Thursday morning. I love puzzles of many types: crossword, jigsaw, cryptograms, quotefalls, and pundles. Maybe this page isn't really "art", but my journal represent little pieces of me. I love these Me & My Big Ideas alpha stickers (pictured below with a book of pundles and a Penny Black stamp.)
Prompt #6: Invisible
I intended to use the stamp on my next page, but just used it's quote instead,"The heart sees what is invisible to the eye." When I played with glimmer mist last month with my Design Diva friend (Chris), we started to doodle on our misted papers. I love to doodle, but I have rarely done it on my cards. I find it so relaxing! I knew I wanted to include my doodles in my art journal, but did not know if they would work with Gina's prompts. When I chose the 'invisible' quote and saw the word 'heart' in it, I knew my doodling would make it's debut. I cut the misted scrap into a heart shape, added the quote, mounted on black card stock, and doodled the scallops.
Prompt #5: Thrive
This prompt had me stumped. I had my other misted doodle scrap and it reminded me of something my friend Dianne said to me a few years ago, "June, you would bloom wherever you are planted." I added the prompt to the front of Dianne's compliment. Voila!

I didn't know you were doing this one, too. Fun! (And by "too", I don't mean *I* am doing it, not at all...)

I love those pundles, though I didn't know that's what they're called.

Keep it up!

holy macaroni missus, you are TOTALLY on a roll, aren't ya?! :) (isn't it cool how once you get "unstuck"...everything just falls into place so very beautifully?!)

i ♥LOVE♥ all 3 of these...the "under" control is verrrrrry cool... (that's totally ART, imo...it's visual, it expresses something about you, it's *FUN*, it illustrates the prompt! art, art, ART!!!) ...and i love both the glimmer misting AND the finished pages you've made from the experiments!

(♥♥♥ ps: i am SO HAPPY to see your doodles AND your handwriting AND your sense of humor all making it into your art journal!!! ♥♥♥)

Your doodeling is great and much better than shoveling snow! Good job!
