Everything is blossoming here and it makes me so happy to see so much color! Of course, it still goes from warm to cold and back again so the heavy coverlet and socks are still out, but it won't be for much longer;)
Let's start off with some delicious food and drink for T Stands For Tuesday hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth:
Our son recently treated hubby and I to a special dinner for our 60th birthdays and we chose Apollo Grille in town. The food is SO good here! It truly is a treat as it is a bit pricey .We did start with a Caesar salad but I forgot about taking a pic. My dinner in the first pic - a special catch- Rockfish, and it was prepared as was the delicious rice, with lemon, coconut, mango.Yum! A Cabernet and water to drink. Hubby had the shrimp stuffed with crab meat and deemed it mouth watering. His drink was Blue Moon beer. No pics of Todd's or Kyra's meals but they also enjoyed theirs very much.
I've been having so much fun with Dina Wakley supplies lately so here is a small variety of projects:
I made this tag by painting the background using DW paints and stencil along with a Stabilo All pencil. The image is from her Collage Collective Book and the words are from one of her Collage Tissue Words packs. I scribbled along the right side with a Fude Ball pen. And then for fun I added it on one of the pages in the DW Collage Collective book:
it fits quite well on this page doesn't it? Joining Tag Tuesday (Faces); the Simon Monday Challenge (Tag It); and Art Journal Journey (Having Fun).
Here are a few more circle art pieces I did for Birgit Koopsen's Instagram challenge of "Everything Circles". It ends as of the 30th and I have kept up every single day-longest challenge I ever participated in (go me!).The only requirement was to have the circle shape somewhere on your art. It was I who chose to literally make circle art and add another piece to the challenge:) I did also do two journal pages just for a change.
This one came quite quickly cuz that was just how I was feeling that day. I stenciled over a gelli plate print, added the DW Collage Collective face and stitched over a few of the scribble lines already in place, added the computer printed words, then sponged the edges with black ink.
Another DW Collage Collective face, collage tissue background and sentiment. Butterfly and star stickers from my stash.
Tim Holtz Collage Tissue Paper (Symphony), Tim Holtz Botanicals chipboard pieces.
Joining in at Paint Party Friday too! Enjoy your week, and thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment-much appreciated. <3
