Black and White

OK, I rarely do this,
but I am going to walk you briefly through the process of how
my piece for this week's

Last night I sat down at the computer
and thought to myself,
I'll bet I can make a cool photo mask.
Why do I buy them, it must be simple.
And I did.

(I was right, it IS simple) 
So long story short,
I made a mask,
Made a background with it,
made a layout,
and then changed it up so
I could use it for this week's
Here is the version before I adjusted it...
and then...
To tell you the truth,
I like them both!

Summer of Colour-Last Week!

I am so glad I found Summer of Color and played along!
It's been a lot of fun and forced me to get my sorry tired butt in gear each week
and make something just for it!
This week's colours are Orange,Orange and Blue, and I made this journal page.

I hope you had as much fun as I did!!

Street Art

This is actually, highway art, I suppose.
On a road trip last summer, 
we stopped and discovered some ruins of an old bridge or something 
and it was full of glorious graffiti.
So my grandson is yelling to get an echo and
I am just plain happy.

Green, Green and PInk!

I went digital.
IN the midst of a too-busy week at work and just did not have the time
to sit down and create something with paint and patience.
Aw well, such is life sometimes.
