Dots and FLowers

I had to get in a couple more flower creations before May is over!

My first page is inspired by the **Art*Journal*Journey* and THESE nails.

Card going to my sweet aunt who sent me a great card and a little treat this week - she is a CTMH demonstrator and very creative!

The BAJ page focuses on praising God with shouts of joy, sweet words, and song,
Doodled the BAJ dots and stenciled the card circle.  The flowers are the To A Wild Rose from SU! painted with Arteza Gouache colors. Had to add in some fun ladies to jazz things up a bit.

New toys to play with on my second creations.  These were done for the **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* challenge and the Teapot Tuesday challenge with was red, white, and blue but not patriotic.
Page and card made with new Rubbernecker Wildflowers in the wind and Dina K greeting from IO.

Love the sentiment from my friend Dina K.  It is at IO.  Such a true statement, but seems we humans can't resist looking back and forth too much. Here is a picture of just the card.

Praying for the U.S. - please join me!  We need prayer desperately.



  1. Both pieces are wonderful Nancy, full of joy, and very pretty. Looks like you had fun! Take care, hugs, Valerie

  2. A beautiful card and a fantastic floral page in your journal. Thank you for linking to Mia's theme at Art Journal Journey
    Stay safe.

  3. Beautiful thoughts, beautiful BAJ pages and that Rumi saying touched me so ... The Bible quote is lovely too. Your flowers are just magical as is the rest of your art.

    Hope you are well.


  4. Lovely journal pages and cards Nancy, the pink flowers are pretty and I love the vintage ladies but I especially like the beautiful wild flowers.

  5. Your card and your journal page are gorgeous, Nancy. I love the dolls on your card and the great colors combination on the page. Thank you so much for joining again my challenge at AJJ. Hugs, my friend.
    My prayers are with US and Latin America. Hope that this pandemic will end soon.

  6. These are a great couple of journal pages to wrap up the month with Nancy. The flowers are gorgeous and so are sentiments. Hope we get to see you next month too. Pretty soon that challenge will go live. Happy new month and thanks for joining us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

  7. amazing flower creations Nancy, I've always admired that wildflowers Rubbernecker stamp, you've created such a beautiful card and your journal pages are wonderful :)
    Hugs Christine.

  8. I'm always surprised by the beauty of Rubbernecker flowers. These are gorgeous and you've used them well. Love the card and the quote. Beautiful work. Pray without ceasing... always makes me think of Keith Green's 'Make My Life a Prayer to you.' We carry his light and his presence everywhere we go and although we can't go very far at the moment, we can 'go' online!
    My Intercessor group still meet weekly via WhatsApp and it works well. I tend to forget to pray for our leaders, yet it's a command and something I do when I remember. My heart goes out to country leaders at this time. It must be SO HARD to make decisions for the right reasons but as a friend of mine used to say, 'People must always come first!'
    We're praying for the unrest you're experiencing over there, that people will realise violence achieves nothing. But oh how I understand their outrage. God bless you.

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
