It was a dark and stormy night. … Happy WOYWW. Check out Stamping Ground for even more colorful delights from around the world.

So today I’m all dressed in black as I start working on two projects.

  • Life Book 2016 – Week 13 – Layers of Love with Rae Missigman, on the left is the beginning of much fun with layers and layers and layers of love
  • A Colorful Journey – Carolyn Dube – Hardware finds, on the right there are 2 pages of fine and very fine sandpaper painted black. I plan on pulling out my metallic and florescent gel pens and the like for a kindergarten inspired garden.

I did want to share with you something I finished up earlier this week.

  • Wanderlust – Week 12 – Flora Bowley – “Brave Intuitive Painting”. Wow such fun and I am working big and bold and planning on wall art for my studio. You probably can’t see the shimmer effects from the new Dylusions Mica Sprays, but they make me very happy. And later today I am supposed to be receiving a complete set of the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. Look out world.

    Love the pages and the array of tools..there is little left to try! i would have struggled to paint the sandpaper, my teeth would have been on edge! Fascinating process though, and am enjoying all your classes vicariously!

    I enjoyed the Wanderlust lesson so much, can’t wait to give it a start, seeing yours even more so. Lots of fab stuff going on in your studio. Have a great Easter weekend Vicky #9
