This week's theme is: "BOTTLES" (Containers, Cup, Mug, Vase, Beverage, Cosmetic, Ornamental,...). I am putting up one of my brush jars for my contribution. Hope you have a great creative day!

Saved Stuff

I was working on a page in my journal and needed to put a protective sheet under it to protect from runover. I didn't realize it had something sticky on it which ended up transferring to my journal. Thank goodness it wasn't a finished page but I couldn't shut my journal like that so I ended up sealing the sticky with acrylic paint layers. I added a couple of strips of paper to tie two sketches I wanted to save together and glued the sketches on top. I ended up saving my old sketches and my journal with a page I am quite happy with. I added the hearts and flowers just because I WAS happy about saving the page.

I got my inchie done early this week! The theme from InchybyInch this week is leaves. I looked through my stamps but didn't find anything to fit so I decided to do a leaftangle. It sure looks better when it's just one inch rather than blown up like here.

Back to My Inchies

Over at Inchy by Inch this week the theme is "asia" so I took a stamp from Japan and cut it to fit and collaged on the part that was trimmed off. I added a little fuschia color to the edges and voila! I haven't done any for a few weeks; this ended up being almost instant gratification. Hey, if you need a quick project just try one yourself.

Photo Theme for Thursday

Can't get newer than newly hatched doves! "New" is the theme for Photo Thursday this week. I'm a little late - oops, that's not new!

I find that freshly hatched birds are not all that cute. After a week or so yes, but not brand new!

Journal Page

I have made a new journal page in which I added some folk art painting. I haven't done any of that kind of painting in several years so it was quite a stretch for me. I like how it turned out and hope to do some more of it. My journal gives me a place to use this painting now that I don't have furniture or other things I want to paint on.

Photo Theme for Thursday

I thought I'd try a new thing here. It's based on using a photo to fit a theme and you can find the site here. The theme this week is "Tranquil". I am a little late for this week but it was held over for another week so I should be covered. Here is my photo:
