How is everyone? I missed doing a post for last week cuz hubby had some extra time off d/t snow storms, and the national holiday for Martin Luther King Day so we just took advantage of some extra time together.
Oh, and we woke up this past Saturday at 4:30AM to find a water main break on our street!! We were without water until late that night and are now on orders to thoroughly boil all water before using-ugh! Hubby actually took a day off today (Mon.) at the last minute because we were getting hit with some dangerous snow squalls and another heavy snowfall right when he should have been leaving for his 45 minute commute!
I just took these a few min. ago even though they look identical to the snow photos I shared in my last two posts! It just keeps piling up. Enough already😠! I am trying to dismiss the winter by using lots of bright and bold colors in my art 😉
We did get to have Todd and Kyra over on the 14th for Todd's birthday dinner in between the storms:
We got him a custom mug with a silly photo of he and Kyra and on the other side of it I had printed "Remember to always have fun together". He doesn't like ANY hot drinks so I filled the mug with his favorite Goldfish snack😀. We also got him a set of custom coasters with a photo collage of him, his groomsmen and father from the wedding day. That and one of his fave dinners- German meatballs over noodles, warm bread, salad, and a dark chocolate cake. I'd say we did good. Cheers to the T Stands For Tuesday gang!
Art Play: I actually have two pages of art yet to post here that are listed in a small notebook! Not always easy to keep up with what is posted here and what I post on Instagram or when. This page I'll share with Try It On Tuesday (theme is Oh So Cute) because I think this darling Dina Wakley birdie fits the bill:)
Still enjoying starting a page with a grid of a few colors and playing with more unusual color combinations. Here I used Dina Wakley paints in Sand, Ocean, Eggplant, and Evergreen.
Here is another temporary mandala I created playing with the fussy cut leaves I made from the Darkroom Door small stencil- Ferns:
I used Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays through the stencils. These will be used on cards and journal pages.
A simple collage done on a burlap page. I'm determined to finish the handful of pages left to complete this journal (so I can get a new one of course:):)
And one last page for today. This one is for Art Journal Journey with the theme of "Heavy Metal", and the Simon Says Monday Challenge (Anything But a Card)::
Lots of Dina Wakley products. I used metallic Gloss Sprays in Gilt and Medieval for the background. Other- Dina Wakley Collage Collective, Just Words Collage papers, Good Idea Stamp set, Mantras stencil. Kraft card stock, Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Also joining in at Paint Party Friday. Well that's all folks! Take care and have a wonderful week.
