Seems like the color pink has been dominating my palette and so I thought I'd pull out my pink mug to share with my T Stands For Tuesday gang this week:
This mug was given out a few years ago during breast cancer awareness month. (PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND GET YOUR SCREENING DONE!) Both my Mom and I have gotten several gifts since I made her start going along with me each year to be certain she was getting her mammograms. Nothing like a good cuppa with the morning paper!
Here's a better pic with the truer color:
We'd all love to have you join us on Tuesdays to share your favorite beverage -and or/ anything else from art to music to food-you get the drift-anything goes! It's always an entertaining time hosted by Elizabeth each week at Altered Book Lover.
This is the full page of the detail photo I shared at the top of this post:
This is another page inspired by Danielle Donaldson's book and is a combination of paper, fabric, stitching and watercolor. I actually had to dust my sewing machine off first it's been so long!
And while I was doing this page I was adding extra color to the left page using the "making mud" technique described in the book:
It doesn't really look like mud but I am LOVING this technique and working with wet on wet! Already seeing a beach theme here-what do you think Patty? :):)
Linking my completed page to Art Journal Journey (theme this month of Architecture), Art Journal Every Day, Paint Party Friday, and the Simon Monday Challenge Blog (theme this week is Wonderful Watercolor).
Edited In (Thurs. Oct. 15):
Linking this to Art It Friday - Show Your Face. This is one of 4 sketches on a page which I will share more of next week along with my first cold wax and oil art!! I will also link this to Paper Artsy's Faces Challenge. Thanks for mentioning this Kim!
Due to a sudden death in the family this week requiring my time in helping our great aunt with everything I have not been able to edit photos or create another post. Will be around to visit as I can.
