First of all I want to thank all of you who have sent love, prayers and hugs regarding our recent loss. It's hard to put in words the gratitude for your kindness and understanding.
I finally decided to go back into my art room and create a bit. I chose to do another lesson in the Radiant Faces class. This one was taught by Dina Wakley and actually turned out to be a very appropriate lesson for me at this time.
This is a page of quick simple sketches done with Stabilo pencils to get started on "The Stranger".
And this is my finished journal page:
It ended up being a self portrait exposing my heart.
Still in "Dina" mode I created this journal page:
Paris is on my mind especially since I've been following the Tour de France, and of course Patty's magnificent posts of her trip around France have me wandering. I used a French napkin and the colors of the French flag along with white and black gesso. The Eiffel tower is a rubber stamp I stamped and fussy cut. A recycled French stamp at the top. Silhouette was cut from Gelli Plate printed paper. This is also to celebrate the French Independence day (Bastille Day) on Thursday.
Linking the above to Art It Friday- Show Your Face; Moo Mania (theme is Paris); Try It On Tuesday (theme is Happy Holidays); and Paint Party Friday.
For T Stands for Tuesday:
A light petit dejeuner (breakfast) outdoors on a warm summer morning. Just perfect.
We celebrated my Mom's birthday over the weekend with French food, wine and music of course:) This is the card I made for her:
Linking to the Simon Monday Challenge (theme is flora and fauna).
Looking forward to catching up with everyone this week!
