The Last of October
Hello! Thought I'd begin this post with a painting I did inspired by the last of the zinnias I picked from the garden (you can see that pic here) and a video from Tamara Laporte's FREE!! Life Book Creativity and Wellbeing Summit. This lesson was taught by Janet Skates called "Bouquet of Joy". It was a 3 week free event of videos and instructors and interviews and it was fab!! Anyone else watch the daily vids? I watched all of them but only got to this lesson which really spoke to me. The videos were only available for a limited time.
For T Stands For Tuesday:
I'm sharing my coffee and a breakfast veggie wrap I had while we were in Cape May again last month. I have had this wrap several times at our favorite place for breakfast and it is so yummy! Also too much at once so I always get another meal of it:) Last week although I did participate and visit the TSFT gang, I forgot to link myself so if you wish to see what I posted it's the post just below this one;) And Deb- someone commented that you would have loved to see my whimsical cat painting so if you want to see you can find it here:)
For Tag Tuesday (theme is Edgar Allan Poe) and Simply Neutrals Tuesday I made this tag:
For both the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky) and the Simon Monday Challenge (Take Flight), along with Art Journal Journey (Creature Comforts) I have one last Halloween inspired project:
Bat girl loves flying about with the bats :) Background began with a coat of black gesso. I then stenciled and lightly sponged on white gesso. That sweet girl image-yes- I have been using her and her friends quite a bit lately- is from the Simon Says Stamp Shop Inky Antics Clear Stamp set- designed by Andrea Ockey Paar. I also used lots of stickers and some paper bits from my stash.
I wish to thank all the artists who linked their fabulous journal pages at Art Journal Journey-you all rock! Over 100 joined in(some of you at least several times) guided by my chosen theme this month! It was a pleasure to guest host and to see everyone's art-thank you, and to hosts Susi and Elizabeth!!
It goes without saying that I will also link to Paint Party Friday later this week. Happy week, and thanks for stopping by-mwah!
