Is it really Friday already? And almost June? It's a busy time right now with baby showers and graduations, and spending more and more time outdoors. It also means I may not be spending as much time on some of the art challenges for awhile. However I will NOT MISS Kristin Van Valkenburg's Summer of Color challenge which begins on June 2!!!
I love seeing all the flowers in bloom this time of year and that is what inspired this journal page and title for it:
It began like this:
Here are a few more lettering practice pages in my composition book. These were taken from prompts in JoAnne Sharpe's book The Art of Whimsical Lettering.

I'm also linking to Art Journal Every Day, Creative Every Day, and Paint Party Friday.
In ending this post I'm leaving you with a favorite Maya Angelou quote. We lost this amazing woman a few days ago but her words will be imprinted in our hearts forever. Rest in peace Maya, and thank you.
" If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be." Maya Angelou
