T Stands For Matcha Tea and Other Things
Hello Lovelies! Are you having crazy up and down weather like we are here in PA?? My body can't take this one day very warm, next day freezing cold and damp every week-ugh. But...
next week I will be MIA here while I enjoy a full week in Palm Beach Florida with dear friends!! I have never been to Florida and am SO looking forward to warmth, the beach, the water, and manatees! Everyone who knows me is saying I may not come back:):)
For T stands For Tuesday I will share the special tea that Susi mentioned on her blog. It sounded interesting and after reading up on it I bought some:
and I like it very much! Of course, I like green smoothies so I knew the color wasn't going to be a problem;) It has a mild herbal, grassy taste to me. I'm drinking it in my old world glass mug made by Nestle. One never knows what kind of inspiration you will find at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's T Stands For Tuesday, so come on by- you could be inspired by a recipe, a book, art, a beverage, a movie - you name it!
For the Simon Wednesday Challenge (theme is "Black, White and One Other Color") I have this card:
The sparkle on the patterned card stock does not show so here's a detail pic:
The card looks so much better in person. I made a few like this because I needed some masculine cards. Products: large white notecard, black, white, aqua card stock (Recollections); sparkle patterned card stock (DCWV); Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles dies; Our Daily Bread Designs birthday dies; Dot Sparklers sticker-Stampendous.
I have two simple abstract paintings/journal pages to share:
The yellow is Golden High Flow Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold which I love!
The mood and colors of this page were inspired by the crazy weather we've been having. I am enjoying doing these simple abstracts so much that I decided to do a series of them using only a few colors, and one found word as my inspiration.
Joining Art Journal Journey (theme is "the colour yellow") with my first abstract, and sharing both with Paint Party Friday. Have a super week! I'll be around to visit...
