Hello Peeps, surely the whole world is now in the same boat and practicing keeping a safe distance. As each day passes there are more and more closings and cancellations going into the next two months and some even further away than that. Sad. But it's so much more important to put and end to the illness and deaths from the Corona virus. I hope you are all doing well, and stay that way.
I'm just doing my usual at home. It is SO nice that spring is coming! I really don't mind staying home at all, and for those of you getting a bit antsy I hope you are finding ways to cope. My best way is staying creative so let's get to the art!
First grab a cuppa and join us for T Stands For Tuesday won't you?
You can see my green tea on the right of my art table. It's been green tea for me in the afternoons lately. On the table is a journal page I have just started. Perhaps I'll have it finished for my next post. I do tend to flit about from one journal to another quite often:)
For the Simon Wednesday Blog Challenge(anything goes) I have this card:
The flower and leaves are covered with Diamond Stickles glitter glue and it looks so pretty in person!
Products: Neena Solar White cardstock; Archival Jet Black ink; alcohol markers; stamp and die set-Floral Frame (Altenew).
Speaking of Altenew, I recently won an Instagram gift card giveaway from them and can't wait for my new stamp/die set and stencils to arrive!
For the Simon Says Monday Blog Challenge(theme is to use the Spring mood board they have pictured), and Tag Tuesday (theme is bunnies and butterflies):
Products: manila tag; decorative napkin; Jet Black Archival ink; Stickles Glitter glue; Tim Holtz Wildflowers die, Small talk stickers; clear bunny stamp from Simon Says Stamp Showers and Flowers set; white pompom- Darice; butterfly stickers- Paper House; fabric washi tape- Recollections; alcohol markers. I added the glitter glue to the wildflower die over the pink flower as well as adding the glitter glue to the flower centers on the napkin background.
And a journal page:
This page was a mop up to use up the leftover green and aqua paints I had used for my green themed page in my last post. I opened to this page over the weekend and this is what spilled out. It wasn't what I had in mind, but my thoughts took over and went onto the page. The faces are Dina Wakley Collage Tissue to which I added and extended the black lines a bit with a Micron pen. I also used blank white tissue to computer generate the words to add to my page. For the background painting on both pages (see the other page here)I used a large 2" painters brush, dipped it in water,then into the acrylic paint- the green at one edge of the brush and the aqua at the other. I just repeated to cover the areas I wanted to and also to blend some of the colors a bit.
I will join in at Art Journal Journey for the theme of green, and also Paint Party Friday!
Be safe, be well, and stay creative! Til next time...
