Whatever inspires me ends up my art journal, one way or another. The Scripps National Spelling Bee, which was last week, is a family tradition here since we are an entire family of proud word nerds. Perhaps that is why the word on the scrap of dictionary paper called to me.
And then that word met with an unfortunate Oops…but that was just an outstanding opportunity presenting suddenly. Check out the video to see what happened!

This is the scrap that started the whole page. A piece of dictionary paper with some Bubbles stencil fun.

I am forever in awe of the amazing abilities of these kids. I was on the edge of my seat, holding my breath as each finalist spelled. I can’t spell to save my soul but I do enjoy a good bee!

Here’s the tense last word…down to the wire!
