Well, it's been a week of good and bad, happy and sad, and thus my pensive mood. Let's start on the good shall we?
And speaking of blooming I made this card using a newer Altenew stamp and die set:
Simon Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).
On a few sad notes... first off my heart goes out to those in England-again-innocent victims of yet another terror attack. Love and prayers. Recently our local small zoo acquired two giraffes- a father and son. They were transported here from the Kansas City zoo. Three days later and poor Ernie the son was found dead. Of course there is an investigation going on and people are heartbroken. Personally I feel a bit sick about it and just don't feel good about zoos...
And just one day after I posted last week- I found this:
On another good note LuAnn and I went to McCarthy's again - to have some of that fabulous Caramel tea we had the other week and it was just as good!
T Stands For Tuesday.
At Tag Tuesday the theme is "animals" so I made this tag:
SSS Moonshine Sequins I so love!
Lastly I have a journal page to share. I created it in my 5 1/2" x 8" watercolor journal. It began like this:
I kept it quite simple and painted her with acrylics, then loosely outlined with a fine black pen. The dress is a deli paper gelli print. Pensive. And the Eleanor Roosevelt quote is just how I was feeling at the time. It's from a collage sheet by ARTchix Studio. Linking to Art Journal Journey for the theme this month of "circles", Moo Mania and More for the theme of "hair", a new to me challenge- Creative Artiste Mixed Media (anything goes) thanks to Valerie's post, and of course to Paint Party Friday!
Have a great week and be well my friends.
