Today is Tuesday Treasures

Today is Tuesday.

Today, lots of things popped into my world to be shared.

So here they are :

Today’s Quote :

“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


(Re-read that a few times. I did.)


Today’s Rock :


“Help” as in “I need help”, or “help” as in “the help I need  is here”…?


Today’s Song :

I loves me some Jason Mraz.

His new album is coming out in April. This song is on it.

The title ?

Love is a Four Letter Word”.

Yes, Jason, yes.


Today’s Art Journal Page:



Silly pillow pictures of me taken with my IPhone Photobooth App.

They were printed out on David’s laser printer on regular photocopy paper.


Technology rocks !


Today’s Art Supply of Choice :

BIC Wite-Out Shake -N Squeeze Correction Pen, White

BIC Wite-Out Shake -N Squeeze Correction Pen, White

Kind of stinky but great for adding bold white lines on top of whatever you have on the page, or serving as a resist. And it dries very quickly.

Thanks to Traci Bautista for teaching me about this tool.


All of these little treasures came to me this morning to help me start my day.

Happy to be able to share them with you in the hopes that they make your day shimmer a little brighter too.

Big love, Beautiful Ones !

Ah, tools and tricks and the whole nine yards of heart! I am going to go and get a coffee and settle down for a little bit.

Amanda St.Clair said...

That quote is so true.
I never would have thought to use a correction pen had it not been for Traci. Have a beautiful day!

Lovely to see you my friend. I have known about the whiteout pen for years but never bought one until recently. I do wish they had one that put out a finer line though. They work great for dots too!

Perky fun in that face today. All good things! xox Corrine

Olivia said...

What a fun page, My Queen! I too use white-out pen over black gesso or anything really. If I need something thinner I use the amazing Uni-Ball Signo from JetPens.com. I have tried other white pens that skip or stall or dry up, but not this one...

May your week be filled with fun, My Queen! xoO
