Summer Of Color - Purple Queen

I really enjoyed doing the Summer Of Color challenge this week. I have been away from my studio and didn't think I would be able to do this week's color challenge. Which is purple, a color that ranks high in my favorites! Anyway today I was leaving some comments on last weeks challenge and when I went to Lisa's blog at Sugar Creek I was so inspired by her beautiful journal work that I thought I'd get out my dusty journal that I always carry and almost never play with. So I made my first journal page in a long time. I have been singing this song , all week as it is in my car CD player and because I love it. It seemed perfect for purple. I bought some wonderful sheer polka dot tape at JoAnns while traveling and love it. It's very wide unlike washi tape and very sticky! The spirals are clear packaging of something I bought somewhere and the background paints are old tubes of Lil Davis Metallic Shades in Mint and Sweet Pea. Anyway lots of fun ! Thanks Kristin and Lisa!

I'll be visiting everyone whenever I have internet...look forward to seeing everyones as always! :) Nan

EDIT...I added the stars I forgot. Before I glue down 5 gazillion stars tell me better with or with out stars ? Also the song is Going To California by Led Zepplin. It's one of their rare acoustic song and is so pretty!

Summer Of Color Red Shoes Rerun

I'm going to be out of town for a few weeks so I'm preposting a rerun this week of one of my very favorite red altered art projects. I won't have much computer time but I promise to catch up with everyone as soon as possible! :) Nan

Summer Of Color .. Little Brown Nest

Well, I do not know where this week went. Sometimes you blink and a week has passed! It's time for Summer Of Color at Kristins and I made a small piece this week. I usually do 6x6 or 8x8 but I really felt like working smaller this week. I was originally thinking inchie but this little nest is only 2x2.... I added a pop of color in the eggs.

I have a calm ( knock on wood) week ahead so I hope to get back in my studio and back to my blog. I've missed seeing what everyone has been doing this week. :) Nan

Summer Of Color...Lemon Fairy Cupcake

Kristin's Summer Of Color challenge is all about yellow this week. Hummm...yellow....not usually my favorite color to work with. But after a few crumpled sketches I came up with this and had fun doing it. I might even like yellow, a little bit more now. Bring it on orange! ( my least favorite color of all!) I thought I'd share a bit of my creative process with you this week too. I think it's fun to see how people come up with their ideas sometimes. Can't wait to see what everyone does this week.

Wow...Missed my Internet ! Catching Up !!!

I've had very sketchy internet service for the past few days. I think all the heavy rain we've had must have caused a kink in the system....anyway I'm glad it's working now! A couple of my blog posts are showing up a few days late. I have all my ICADS / index cards of the day but I'll just post a few at a time. And I won a RAK from Trisha at Art A Day Keeps The Crazies Away ! It is a beautiful green bracelet that she made for the Summer oF Color challenge. I love bracelets and green so I am happy. Go visit her'll enjoy it!
