First some great news!!! Todd and Kyra are finally moved into their apt.! Saw it earlier today and it is lovely. I have my art room back but will spend time reorganizing and purging in between making art. The clean out is way overdue.
Summer seems to be flying by. I just saw a sign on Google that said "summer should get a speeding ticket" and I couldn't agree more.
Recently I had a small celebration for my Mom's 75th birthday:
and of course we toasted with champagne! Once I added the photos here I immediately noticed how her top coordinated with the cake, the dishes, the card and the tablecloth:). The tissue paper was a white paper I stamped all over using the same flower as on the card because I didn't have a regular paper big enough to make an actual envelope. Here is the card up close and front:
Simon Monday Challenge blog with the theme of "you've got the edge" as i took my leaves off the edge of the card fold.
As a post has to somehow tie in with a beverage (be it art, an actual beverage, anything that somehow pertains to a beverage) for T Stands For Tuesday I will share our water and champagne with you all.
I have one more journal page to share with both Art Journal Journey (for the theme of summertime love), and for Paint Party Friday:
This stencil (Art Minds) was a very recent purchase from Michaels. I thought $4 was a good deal as it is a large stencil, and I always wanted a nice bicycle stamp or stencil. Turns out there were two other sentiment stencils in the pkg. with this:) I just had to play with it immediately and the fastest way for me to do that was to brayer summery colors all over a gessoed page then simply stencil with black paint. Washi tape was used across the bottom.
As of next week sometime I will be taking a short blogging break and unplugging so I can completely immerse myself in pure summertime joys before it passes me by.
