A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

working on Challenges

So I should be working in my art journal and I should be working on the two swaps I have signed up for... but nope I am entering challenges instead.  I have entered the last three for Scrapbooker paradise.

This time it was a sketch.... here is a link to the post


I left a few elements off... It did not need it.

I am not a scrap booker so be gentle... Oh btw this is a digital page in which I created in paint shop pro.

Ps The only non thing that I did not make or take a photo of myself is the sand background.  That was an internet find but I did turn it into a seamless tile.

LOL I forgot how to do an image fill and how to make a seamless fill.  It was a refresher for me in paint shop pro.
