Road Trip

It is a cold rainy weekend and you are at the cottage. Can't fish, swim or boat. What is the next best thing to do??? Go visit wineries!!The Traverse City area of Michigan is home to many wineries and Mission peninsula is home to some of our favorites! Of course, being the kind of weekend it was, some were even too crowded to get into. But we did enough to bring home a good supply of wine!

Sketch from My scraps and More







Modeling paste and paint made the perfect grapes! I am using this for the texture challenge at Try it on Tuesdays, as well as for the challenge over at Frosted Designs.

I used modeling paste and paint to create clusters of grapes. I painted swirly stems. The background also has stamping and stenciling. I have embossed chipboard, cork , burlap and plaid cotton ribbon also adding to the texture.

We love hanging out with our kids and their significant others!!
