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.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

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

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?
