How is everyone? For those of us here in the northeast part of the US we are going to have a beautiful warm week and I am SO excited! This is also looking to be a crazy busy month as my calendar just keeps filling up-lots of good things involving music, food, drink and friends - I just hope I can keep up with it all! I'm definitely not used to such a social calendar:)
Speaking of food and music last week we went to an Italian restaurant for dinner and took along a friend. Stefano's has been around MANY years and they still do not disappoint. And of course I will now make you all hungry:
And for my T Stands For Tuesday group you can see the choice of drinks with our dinners:) Our entrées also came with a salad and basket of warm fresh bread with a dipping sauce. Thank goodness I didn't have lunch that day! We stayed and came especially to see Lorenzo (whom I've mentioned many times before) play in a Caribbean band. It was so much fun hearing the steel drums and summer songs! You could almost feel the island breezes:):)
I did manage to squeeze in a journal page:
The background is gesso, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress inks, a foam stamp (fern leaf), and UM stamp (branch). The girl is an image I did with oil pastels in a small book. I resized and lightened her a bit before printing her out because I wanted her to appear a bit fragile in the woods. The words were added digitally.
I'll be linking this to Art Journal Journey (theme is "if you go down into the woods" this month); the Simon Monday Challenge (theme this week is "make your own backgrounds");
and Paint Party Friday celebrating its 5th birthday. Happy birthday and thank you EVA and Kristin!!!
Have a super week !
