The ink painted handwriting was inspired by Kira.  See her video here on how to!

Art Day Fun...

Had a great time today with my friend Sandi.  She was kind enough to share with me all the free stuff she won on Kelly Rae Roberts' blog give-away.  We played with all of Claudine Hellmuth's new products!  Hear my 2 cents worth in my podcast!

Have a  blessed day!

A Brilliant Storm and an Awesome Power...

Other than the heat, I love this time of year when the afternoon thundershowers move across the state of Florida.  The sound of thunder is loud and the sky becomes dark so fast, you would think nightfall was upon you.  Moments before the clouds open up, there is a calm that is hard to describe.  When I was younger we would gather on the carport and sit on the hood of the car to watch the infamous South Carolina electrical storms sweep across the sky!  It was magical and brilliant and I would get so caught up in the awesome power of  that display.  If you ever read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle when you were a kid, then you know what I mean.

And so it is..right now!   I instinctively duck down a little even while I sit here typing as the thunder is booming and that crack of lightening seems as though it struck within the boundaries of my front yard.

...and I am feeling peaceful!

Have a  blessed day!

Image Transfer...

Just bought a pretty cool image transfer kit action set and have been trying it out. It is Danielle's Image Transfer Action Kit at Cat Scrap and it was only $2!  It is easy to use and creates some pretty cool image transfer effects!

The Peepers Leave the Nest...

Lucy and Puppet, Carolina Wrens, nested in our front porch light. I got lucky and was able to see a couple of the babies leave the nest!  I created a short video and you can find that on my Facebook under my videos.

Have a  blessed day!

Creating an Art Journal Page #1...

I am happy to say that with the help of my friend, Kira, I figured out how to edit a video the time lapse way.  I had a great deal of fun setting up my camera and trying to figure out how to get the best shot, which by the way, I will try to change on the next one.  I often stand while I work and my arm kept getting in the way each time I leaned forward! This video is called Creating an Art Journal Page #1.  I look forward to making more!  Enjoy!

Have a  blessed day!
