ART FROM THE ROAD: The Three Muses Challenge (04-18-17)

The Three Muses this week challenge us to create an artful project using HANDS as the focus. I was very excited to see this challenge theme come up as I had just been given a stamp with hands in it!!

My husband and I have been traveling since last September (mostly to avoid the cold New England weather) and have taken this opportunity to reconnect with family and friends across the United States. I was thrilled when we announced online that we were approaching Virginia that an online friend invited us to stop and see her. It was the first time I would meet Carol Porter, artist, teacher, stamp designer and friend. Carol gave me a framed piece of her artwork and also the stamp I have used here (one that she designed):


Thank you for your visit today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are important to me!

If you would like to create something for this "hands" challenge, you can find the details here.

Cheers!

ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art (04-16-17)

This week's Sunday Postcard Art (SPA) celebrates Easter and all things Spring. Mandy Chilvers is the owner of SPA and serves as our resident artist and host this week.

I don't have much in the way of Easter or Spring stamps but what I do have is a new stamp from Stampotique called Betsy Bird. She had not yet seen any ink, so she way perfect. The background is a scrap from another project cut to 4x6".


Come play along at SPA this week. You can find the details here

Thanks for stopping by and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are appreciated and serve as inspiration to me!

Cheers!

ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art (04-02-17)

This week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge is brought to us by Marion, who brings us to Einstein! When doing an internet search, I came up with more art, images, and quotes than one might imagine! This time, there just wasn't room enough on my 4x6" space as I needed so I will add one of my favorite quotes here for you:

Education is what remains after one has 
forgotten what one has learned in school.

                                                                                                                              
And, here's the postcard:


I hope you can take some time to get crafty this week. If you want to play along with Marion's challenge on Sunday Postcard Art, you can find the details here.

Thanks for visiting and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are appreciated and mean a lot to me!

Cheers!
