We ended up with 6 inches on the ground and it got bitterly cold and windy... thus the second part of my February calendar pages:
The theme at Moo Mania and More is "music" and the new theme this week at the Simon Monday Challenge Blog is "use your favorite tool". So I created this postcard for both challenges:
Gel Printing Plate prints (my favorite tool-love the plate!!) and glued a piece on the left. I then added the vintage image(Retro Café Art) and sentiment (Paper Whimsy) after sponging the edges with another favorite tool- Tim Holtz Blending Tool. Another bit of printed deli paper was added at the bottom of the image along with some fabric lace. Edges were sponged using the blending tool and Distress Vintage Photo ink. I embellished the lace and flowers on the image with Stickles glitter glue - you have to take my word for it as it doesn't show at all:(
For T Stands For Tuesday - and Valentine's Day, I am sharing not only a beverage, but a celebration, as it happens to be our son's birthday too! We just had some family over for dinner on Sunday.
here he was at 9 months old:
For Art Journal Journey (Fifty Shades of Red theme all month!) and for Paint Party Friday I made this page in my watercolor journal. I used a wet on wet technique along with Peerless watercolors for the background. Vintage image from my stash along with patterned paper scraps. Felt heart is Martha Stewart. I added a heart button, then completed the page with a rub on.
Wishing those of you who celebrate it- a Happy Valentine's Day!
