Several birthdays/anniversaries/blogiversaries are happening, along with St Patrick's Day festivities the next few days. So get on your party hats!!
First, a very happy anniversary/blogiversary/birthday to the Paint Party Friday blog!!! Four candles have been blown , and thanks to EVA and Kristin-the amazing hosts- PPF is beginning year 5! I cannot say more about this amazing group- and not just the art that is shared, but also the camaraderie, the friendships made, the tips and techniques, the encouragement, the support, and the cyberspace hugs. Here's to YOU!!
A bit about this page: background is a deli paper printed from the gelli plate. I printed a black and white photo of myself on a gelli print paper, then just painted in the flesh tone and some blond highlights in my hair. The hat, balloons and cake are dimensional stickers. Words were added digitally.
There are also several other birthdays amongst friends and family this week so using the latest Freshly Made Sketches prompt:
Just flipped the design. Here's a detail pic because you can't realize how pretty this is in person with all the soft glitter:
I am also linking this card to the Simon Monday Challenge Blog for the theme of "B is For..." In my case it's for birthdays!
This weekend I am also celebrating St. Patrick's day festivities on Saturday -so long as the weather cooperates...AND my birthday and 3 year blogiversary on Sunday!! I began by offering giveaways to begin each year but this year I want to do something a bit different. Rather than offering just a few things I would like to randomly send out happy mail throughout the year as RAKS (random acts of kindness)!! Do you know how much art I accumulate just through the fun of challenges?? All I ask is that if you wish to receive a little something is to email me at (neenfrance(at)yahoo(dot)com) with your snail mail address. I will note it in my paper address book (I do not keep any of this info on my PC) and promise it will NOT be given out to anyone.
I have a full weekend and week ahead but promise to get around to visit you. Thank you all so much for making my blogging experience one of the best!! Mwah!
