Well hello peeps - long time no see! Hope all is going well for you. The very beginning of November hubby and I spent our last time in Cape May for this year. It started out very cold and windy just the first day but got absolutely gorgeous and we saw the most beautiful sunsets each evening. And such really fun times meeting up with friends we met there each day...however since getting back home it's like all he(double toothpick) broke loose. Been spending too much time trying to straighten health insurance claims wrongly submitted by the facilities themselves, trying to get through to set up for next years health care (oh the glitches with this too!), etc. etc. And just today - all my inbox emails just disappeared! Poof!! vanished!!:( :( :( We did manage to host a record/vinyl party this past weekend but I'll post on that another time. Let's get on with the art and other good things shall we?
Let us not forget this day of Remembrance, Veterans Day
Here is the complete card which I am linking to the Simon Wednesday Challenge and the Simon Monday Challenge for the theme of "thinking of you":
Products: white notecard; colored pencils; sentiment (Hero Arts); poppies (Magenta); stencil (Prima); Versafine Onyx Black ink; Altenew Morning Frost ink.
For T Stands For Tuesday today I will share this photo:
My future daughter in law Kyra invited me to go with her, her mother and sister to look for a wedding dress this past Sunday. She looked beautiful in everything she tried on, and when we all gasped when she came out in one in particular all we could do was cry. And she chose that dress so we celebrated with Prosecco at the shop. The shop was closed and only open for us. I was so touched to be a part of this. I love this girl so much!
This journal page is meant for Art Journal Journey (theme is "fruits and vegetables") hosted this month by Rike; and I will also join Try It On Tuesday (theme is "autumn colors"). The fruit bowl is from a napkin.
And lastly I will share a bit of the watercolor practice lessons I have been working on here and there. They are from Laura Horn's Watercolor Explorations online class. I am signed up for several of her classes as I just love her teaching and abstract style. I always had a love/hate relationship with watercolors but she is swaying me to the love:) I have learned so much in such a short time!
I am joining in at Moo Mania and More (theme is "circles"):
These are my reference swatches I made using my Daniel Smith watercolors and then some added mixing.
This was for some mark making abstract practice.
Here I was practicing making circles and mixing colors using only 4 original colors - and on the right page is what I got mixing all together what was leftover on my palette from the same 4 colors- just amazing how many colors came from this!! I was so tickled by the beach colors!
Also joining Paint Party Friday again. Looking forward to catching up with all of you. Thanks for popping in!
