I must begin this post by letting you know how touched I was by the many thoughtful posts and art regarding the tragedies of late in this world- especially in Paris - that I saw on your blogs in the last week or so. It truly brings us together.
This post will have a bit of everything because it is a holiday week and I will be busy prepping, cooking and hosting dinner on Thursday, but will return thereafter to see what everyone's been up to:)
For my T Stands for Tuesday group (oh, and Elizabeth our hostess would love to have you join us anytime!) Just bring along a beverage and anything else is a bonus! So, my share for this week:
Last Sunday we went to a few antique shops not far from us -just to browse-and NO we didn't buy anything - and the place we wanted to stop in for a bite had just closed. Well, as serendipity would have it we passed by the Red Lion Inn/McCoole's which we planned on going to for the first time this past Friday to see Lorenzo play. Some of you may remember me mentioning him as we try to see him as often as we can-there's no charge in the places he plays at. We decided to check it out and had an amazing lunch!
The portions were very generous and I was so full-we both were...and yet hubby just had to go for one of the dessert offerings:
This is a journal page I made inspired by Danielle Donaldson's book only this time I used materials other than watercolors:
The background and brushes are from Gelli printed papers and I used Posca pens to embellish and write.
In keeping with using my printed papers I created this page:
Done in the style of Dina Wakley using a Stabilo All pencil to draw the face and then loose handwriting a quote with a Pitt pen. You can see the quote I wrote at the end of this post.
Linking later this week to Art Journal Every Day, Art It Friday- Show Your Face, and Paint Party Friday.
To all of you celebrating our American Thanksgiving Day holiday on Thursday I wish you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
