is in a good place.
The spring-like look to stuff outside is helping. The temps are cold and so is the wind, but the rain from the weekend has left the snow banks shorter, the driveway and decks clear of ice and the sun even made a nice appearance this morning.
The “S”–word was being tossed around in the weather forecast, but I choose to ignore it today.
Today, I have no obligations to anyone but myself.
No groceries or other errands to do, no orders to fill…
I am happy to have this time just for me !
I had such an inspiring afternoon yesterday, showing a few friends some of my art journaling tricks.
I am inspired to spend the day in the studio, finishing up what I started yesterday and maybe even starting a new piece on canvas. We shall see…
I started the day with a yummy smoothie (strawberries, raspberries, kiwi and blackberry yogurt) and it looked so pretty , I had to photograph it with these gorgeous tulips that I bought on the weekend and that have been getting prettier and prettier each day…
Boo had to investigate.
Through the stems he spotted the drink…
Love this crazy cat shot !!!
Then I hissed him away.
No cat germs in my smoothie, Crazy Kitty !
Here are the two pages I started yesterday at my friend Patti’s house.
We used on of my favorite techniques – carefully cutting out a figure from a magazine and using both the cut out as a mask and the background left over as a stencil on the page.
My rocking figure stenciled with white paint…
and here used as a mask, rubbing white paint around the outside edge of the cut out.
I still have pen work and some journaling to do on these pages but I loved the colors and the different layers of paint and collage.
Oh, and looky here !
The hibiscus is welcoming me to my day of play !
Have a great Wednesday, Beautiful Ones !
I hope you find some ways to be kind you your Self too.
