I found this tutorial on Youtube
Art Journaling with Zinnia
She has 2 videos , one in pencil
And one where she colors her drawing.

You can visit her at

I am well aware that I need more practice as I can see all kinds of mistakes , but I am happy = )


I love to draw portrait....I find them facinating. You can make them look happy, sad , mad , anything is possible. I have learn one thing with Joline...I did not like her hair and decided to change it but she was added/collaged on the canvas and it shows , of course ,  never entered my mind !!!!! So now I have to come up with something to fix it....maybe I can and maybe I can't but it is teaching me a lot. If I do not try anything I will never learn.

Every year we dance in the Boca Raton Christmas Parade and it is always very warm outside , this year they say it will be in the low 40.  We are so spoiled with the beautiful weather we have all year round that we forget how cold it can be up North. The  Boca Raton Florida Christmas Parade  is always a great one.

Should be fun even if it is cold.....will look more like Christmas !

My grand daughter is growing up so fast .....she will be 4 months old on December 11. She had her picture taken with Santa yesterday....she was wearing her mother's first Christmas dress....She was not afraid of Santa , which was a surprise to us, she was afraid of Mrs Claus. I take care of her a couples of days a week and every time I see her, she changed. We are so happy to have her in our life ....Christmas has a whole new meaning for us now!

She has started making all these cute little noises that sounds like she is talking....she is smiling all the time , it is so enchanting..I had no idea that being a grand mother would be so fun = ) God is good !!
