Another week of challenges and link ups! I am happy to share with Bleubeard and Elizabeth today for T Stands for Tuesday. My tea of choice is an art project this week:
I had spotted my large bag of napkins in one of my art drawers and decided to play with them again. This is a 3" x 3" canvas that came with this cute little easel. I only paid $1 for the pkg. Part of the napkin was trimmed then glued to the canvas. I further enhanced the words with a gold gelli roll pen, some pencil lines to outline the cup and saucer, and some color and black marks with an XF Pitt pen. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
The actual beverage I'll share for Elizabeth and friends is raspberry limoncello sangria topped with champagne-YUM!!! We walked into town to meet our much younger friends at a favorite place Tapas on Main. We hadn't been there since June! Our very fave bartender Joe was there (he had been out awhile for a knee replacement), AND Lorenzo Branca was the entertainment for the evening! It was a FAB night-with lots of great music, fun, and laughter:
Lorenzo-who not only plays MANY instruments and does all the singing, but is a very talented painter and sculptor. He will play anything from Elvis to Jethro Tull to Neil Diamond to John Legend and the latest artists.
For the Simon Monday challenge this week it's "anything goes". Since thanks to Joe I have Halloween on the brain I made a tag:
And one final bit of art:
Wabi Sabi Art Workshop)!. Once the pg was dry I sponged edges of the pg with Jet Black Staz- On ink.
Linking this to Inspiration Avenue-theme is " favorite artist-do something in the style of a favorite artist". Serena is the first person that came to mind because she has been SUCH an influence in my art since discovering her. I am also linking this to Mix it Monthly hosted by Piarom (Conny) for the theme of "Still Life".
