Lots of Celebrations!
First of all, happy Cinco de Mayo!! Hubby and I made our toast(s) on Saturday evening at Tapas with our first sangria of the season and it was a FAB nite!! Met some lovely and interesting people and couples, and our friend Lorenzo was the entertainment -so what could go wrong?
It's going to be a really busy next few weeks with Mother's Day this Sunday and then several birthday celebrations planned, along with taking Mom to appts. and getting the annuals for planting and baskets. I am also taking in as much of the glorious weather we've been having as much as I can so I may be posting but once a week for a bit. Oh , and my friend LuAnn and I are having another art day to make more gelli plate prints so I will share those pics next week!
Speaking of Mother's Day I made this card for my Mom (she won't see this as she does not have a PC):
Linking this to the Simon Wednesday Challenge this week of "Anything Goes".
A few weeks ago I was You Tube surfing and watching art vids which inspired my next art journal page. Unfortunately I didn't make note of any particular one and combined techniques from at least several of them.
I began with this:
and then proceeded to this:
and then was completed like this:
Linking to T Stands For Tuesday, Art Journal Every Day, and Paint Party Friday for this week.
I also want to share with you a new challenge/link up I will link to for Friday. Kim Dellow visited my blog and left me a message in her comment that she is hosting a link up each Friday called "Art It Friday-Show Your Face". Anyone is welcome anytime. Here are Kim's words about it:
"Link up your face / portrait artwork to inspire and share all the wonderful faces you have been working on. It can be any face from the week just past or the week ahead. Haven't got a face from this week? No problem! Link up one of your older pieces, that is fine too. The link will be open from 10am Friday morning until the next Friday so add away through the week.
Show Your Face and shout it out! The more the merrier!" Kim
So how about it? It's always so nice to meet up with more bloggers and artists and be inspired or be an inspiration yourself:)
I will be around to visit, and if ever you have any ?? about supplies or techniques I may use in any given post that isn't mentioned just ask. I'm happy to share!
