A journal page I put together quickly after stumbling upon the quote. The page had leftover paints brushed over it. I spritzed Dylusions After Midnight ink spray thru a circles stencil and then a bit over the page. Hand carved circle images and an alphabet stamp (Earth Tone Images) were repeatedly stamped using gesso. Mini Silhouettes stencil (Balzer Designs) was applied using black acrylic paint. It looked way too busy so I painted it in completely with the black paint, outlined it with both a Deco Color paint marker and then a charcoal pencil, smudged.

We spent a FUN Saturday evening in town again but at a place we hadn't been to before because our "renaissance man" Lorenzo was playing there. SO glad we went because this wine bar oozed with charm! Here are some pics:
The Artisan Wine and Cheese Cellars. Gorgeous bar and a glass encased room which holds the bottles!
The Wooden Match which is a restaurant/cigar bar/ craft beer bar. The owners manage that place along with this artisan wine bar which was a former freight house.
We did enjoy a nice wine selected by the knowledgeable bartender after I told him what I was looking for in a wine. We also had a lovely cheese platter to accompany our selection. This is a photo from the website because I forgot to take a pic:
And this is Lorenzo at his best!:
He plays so many instruments I lost count! And in addition he is a sculptor, painter and wood crafter!

See you in a few days with my next Summer Of Color Challenge project. It's almost complete-but let me tell you - these colors were a TRUE challenge for me this week!
Have a great week everyone!
