Church Ladies and Butterflies

Try it on Tuesday is all about some stencils, but I tried them on Friday - lol.  
Psalms 117 - A Call to Praise.  Thought some church ladies would work well for this one. I should have done them singing, but we will just say they finished up the song.  Drew the ladies, painted them up with water colors, wrote in the scripture, and stenciled on some butterflies (Magenta stencil) with SU! inks.  

I also made a card to match with the BAJ page I did the other day:
Used the same paper done by my Grandson, Lewis, but I cut it out in strips.  Stenciled on some chicken wire with yellow and brown ink, then stamped with some bubble wrap.  The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature SU! set.  The old butterfly was gray but is now green thanks to some Dylusions Ink Spray.  

Thanks for visiting!  Hugz


  1. Lovely page for TIOT, I'm sure it's good to craft on other days, too! Love the ladies in their best hats. And that's a great card, too. Have a lovely day, take care and stay safe, hugs, Valerie

  2. The church ladies are so cute and fun. Love your journal page and that beautiful card too. I know if makes everything special when you have something your grandson made.

  3. Fun pages, especially those church ladies. Or maybe they are all going for high tea? These are great additions to Try It on Tuesday, even if you tried it on Friday. Thanks so much for joining us.Have a great start to your weekend. Hugs-Erika

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
