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.

Tea Time

Use something that would have been thrown away. Challenge Accepted.

So at the end of the day I gathered items from the recycle container. A couple of Kleenex boxes, my grocery list, smaller boxes, and the cardboard insert from our pizza dinner.

Wow I am so thrilled with the end result. I had no idea where I was going, but I knew I wanted to use the pizza round as my surface. Added Gesso and some favorite acrylic paints to get things going. Cut flowers and decorative items from the boxes, ripped up my list, and selected the 3 cups of tea from the Apriva box. You can’t see the dimension, however the short flower is placed on top of the seal from the new tube of adhesive, and the top flower has the “guck” from the top of the paint tube. I did add the tea bag cover this morning as a final touch. A bit of yellow sharpie decoration and then the quote, on a home made tag of course.
