A Journaling page I am working on with watercolors.  Sam had moved away in April and after a visit we had with him, I came home and started drawing things about him.
He has since moved back and I decided to paint it all in and keep thinking of things I need to add while doing it. 

My Sophie is a companion during these times.  She has her head or paw stuck in the water bucket or trying to drink my wet paint.  In this picture she decided to settle down for a bit.

Lily craves to be outside but would love someone to be with her at all times. 

Here is a flower put together with Tim Holtz grunge paper, a very pliable and inkable medium.  This was stamped and then colored with two colors of Distress Inks.  Cut out, stamped with black Stazon, then embossed with Darcies Glittery black embossing powder.  That's a brad in the middle that looks like a screw.  The background stamps were using my new Mega Mount, that I talked about in a previous post.  I hope to make a rose with this same stamp in the near future.  They are very neat. 

Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping!

Inspiration Wall

Cleaned the house on Saturday and took down the inspiration wall to dust and find some other favorites to put up. 

Put up my small but fun VW collection. 


One of my very favorites-it even came in its own case.  The VW bus.

A little ceramic box I found in Michaels Craft store dollar bin.  I was drawn to the old typewriter.

The tiger marbles I found at another dollar store.  They reminded me of the Detroit Tigers. 

My Mother in Law had found these at an antique store.  I like marbles because they are colored glass and I am drawn to that. 

These are not on my inspiration wall but they are more marbles I have collected over time.  I LOVE that the big red marble. 
The weekend went so fast.... 

I hope you don't lose your marbles this week and I hope they all roll easily for you. 
Thanks for coming by.
