Try it on Tuesday - Here Comes Summer!

 Good Morning all! We have a new challenge up for the next two weeks at 

Try it on Tuesday

"Here Comes Summer"


I made an art journal spread with some summer sunshine and summer waves!


I wish I was on a beach right now listening to those waves splashing! 

Oh well... I'm lounging in the pool... that is good enough for this summer!

Have a good one all!

Try it on Tuesday - Recycle

 Good Morning all! Today we have a new challenge up at

 Try it on Tuesday for the next couple of weeks...  

"RECYCLE"


I used an old computer board that I recycled into this art piece for my desk!


My neighbor has been generous and supplies me with computer boards every once in a while, and they make the most interesting backgrounds for some altered art. 
This is the one I used for today!


First, I add some bits and bobs that I have stashed away......


... then I cover the whole thing with black gesso....


.... then I add some different color waxes to achieve the color I want it to be... easy peasy!





We would love to see your projects that are recycled, and do check out what my teamies have made for this challenge!

Have a fantastic week!

SOSS - F Words

 Hello all! It's been a while and the challenge over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is just what I needed to get the mojo going after a couple months off! 

Edna and my old teammates (miss you all terribly!) have come up with some amazing inspiration for this next two weeks challenge....


This challenge was perfect for what has been happening in my life for the past couple of months, and I just had to art journal it! Although you can't read the journaling around the outside, it was painful to write, but oh so needed! 


I even used my favourite "F Word" in the background! 

Thanks girls for the great challenge!

Miss you loads!
