Finally the 61 day Index Card a Day Challenge on Instagram has ended and I made it through! Now I have a deck of 61 positive affirmation cards-quotes on the June cards, and words on the July cards:
It was a fun challenge but I'm also glad it has ended as I am quite ready to move on to other things;)
Like making birthday cards I'll be needing for this month. Our heat wave continues but it's the heavy humidity that is keeping me in more than out during the day and that gives me more time for art. I am linking these to both the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes), and the Simon Says Monday Challenge ( Happy Birthday!). The Simon Says Monday Challenge is celebrating 10 years-congrats to all, and here's to at least 10 more!!
I decided to keep them CAS using patterned cardstocks from the same mat stack ( Mariposa -DCWV). They are prettier in person because the butterflies don't show their glittery goodness in the photo.
Other products: large white notecards (Recollections); stitched Circles dies (Our Daily Bread designs).Sentiment on cards 1 and 3 (Stampabilities Clear set). Sentiment on cards 2 and 4 (Hero Arts). Versafine Onyx Black ink, Versamark ink; Staz On Spiced Chai ink; brown cardstock (Bazzill Basics Paper); white embossing powder; washi tape (Recollections); border punch (Fiskars).
For T Stands For Tuesday I will share the clafoutis I made and had with coffee:
It went so well with my morning coffee. Cheers!
There is a new challenge for the month of August over at Art Journal Journey .The guest host is Alison aka Craftytrog. Alison has chosen the theme of "Pockets and Tags" so here is my journal page:
I have now begun playing with the Dina Wakley Gloss sprays on my journal pages and on tags and sheets of watercolor paper, following lessons from her Gloss Spray online class. I really LOVE these sprays! Here I used Lemon, Lime, Turquoise, Carnation, and Night. I also used DW Penny and Night paints, Mini Favorites and Squoval stencils; Collage Collective; Words Collage Tissue. The tag was done at an earlier date. I have a container filled with tags I have made so now some will get repurposed;)
Tomorrow we are expecting heavy winds, rains and damaging thunderstorms from tropical storm Isaias so if we lose power I will catch up with the T gang later. Hope things don't get too stormy where you live.
Joining Paint Party Friday later this week. TTFN!
