Grandma

I saw this quote about Grandmothers and wanted to use it for a layout with my new grandson.

I am slowly working my way through my collections of Graphic 45 papers!


I used this sketch from StickitDown

but rotated it.

It felt good to dig into my stash and use up some papers that I have been hoarding:):)

Time to play

My daughter and her family came last weekend for a quick visit. Spent my time chasing the 2 year old and holding the 3 month old. But, it was such fun! They needed to escape the heat in Phoenix and Michigan showed them the perfect weather. I collapsed on Tuesday after they left and after I cleaned and did laundry!

I did find my mojo yesterday though and got out some paints to play. I had seen some projects using paint and string so wanted to give it a try. I am still trying to find my niche in the art world:):)

So here are my newest experiments!










The first three are flowers and the last is supposed to be an angel. I do kind of like how they came out. I used old canvases so the backgrounds of the flowers are not perfect. I might give these a go again using new canvases. I was just experimenting and did not know how they would turn out.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic adventure:) Adding this to PaintpartyFriday! Please check out the wonderful inspiration there!

As always I appreciate your kind words!

Paint Party Friday!

Between staying at my daughter's to help with her new baby and spending almost a week at the cottage after that, it feels like I have had no time to paint or scrapbook. But, while at the cottage my daughter in law, sister and I got out the watercolors. We sat on the deck and got messy. 

Here are three cards I started. I hope to finish them this week after we are done staining the deck. 


The left one is a bird with a butterfly, the middle is a poppy and the right one is another of the fashionista girls. All  need black pen and even maybe more paint.

Thank you for visiting and stop back again to see the completed cards!

Thank you

Is your summer as crazy as mine has been? From visiting the new grandson to spending the 4th at the cottage - I have been on the run. This does not leave me much time to create!

So this week we are home and staining the decks but I found time to make a few cards.




Did you know Scrapbook.com has free classes? I recently enjoyed the lessons in Ultimate Stamping Hacks with Simon Hurley. It is so nice to be able to watch the videos when I want and be able to get some tips and ideas to help me as I create.


I wanted to make thank you cards which would highlight the funny No Pun Intended Collection of stamps (Photo Play Paper) . I love the peas and the sentiment "You make me Hap Pea!" so I went with simple backgrounds made using these dye inks.

Here is a close up of the cards:


These made me smile!

Art Group Demo

Tuesday evening I gave a demo to our art group of how to make string flowers. This technique is simple but messy and fun. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Here are a couple of the canvases I had made to show them.




The results are always different and I found ways to mix colors. If you want more info there are many videos and ideas on google and pinterest.

A friend came over on Wednesday and filled the kitchen table with Paint Pouring Projects! We still have a lot to learn about this fun method but I managed to make a couple of  pieces with wonderful affects.




I also spent some time this week creating thank you cards. The first is a mixed media card using a stencil, stickers, etc.



This one is watercolors.

I have been busy!

I have been spending the month at my daughter’s.  She had a baby boy on May 6 and also has a 2 year old daughter. Not enough time in the day!!

I have been spending time with the 2 year old so her mom and brother can get settled. Luckily she is a fun loving, busy girl.

She loves to paint and is now drawing! While I have not had much time to even get a paintbrush out, I have helped her.






I did manage to get paint on his feet for his first footprints.

I will be home next  week so hope to catch up on some creative projects. 

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Memorial Day
