Lots of Fun Art Journaling and a Few Cards

 Hello crafty friends,

I had fun creating this weekend.  Here are some of my creations - the ones I am willing to share - LOL.

My first one is in my new journaling book and it was inspired by THIS picture on the SCS inspiration challenge and Valerie's Heavy Metal Theme (the Stickles Gel has metallic circles in it) at **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY*.   This kind of reminds me of my hair color right now as I am trying to go all gray and my stylist is mixing in a few different colors to help.  

I played with some Stickles gel that had stars in it too so it also fits the AJJ theme.  If you like Big Bang theory like I do you might get a kick out of my Sheldon-isms.

I did a few BAJ pages too. This one was on the page starting the New Testament in my journaling Bible.  I used torn book and hymnal pages for the maintains and clouds.  It was loosely done after watching a watercolor video from the SCS watercolor challenge this past week. 

More painted circles in Philippians.

Made a few cards this past week too.

This first one is almost all Stamperia Forest goodies - an old SU! sentiment from Elements of Style.  I was a case of THIS card by Dawn Mercedes on SCS  - she was the featured stamper this week. 

Made these pumpkin square recipe cards for the recipe card swap with my scrapbook group.  Was inspired by the midmonth inspiration challenge on Mission Inspiration (Facebook group).  We were supposed to use hands.  I dipped my hands in ink and stamped them on to resemble a well used recipe card. LOL.  
I did this card for last week's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS. It was inspired by THIS card by Linda (hotwheels).  I know it looks nothing like it but things in my head just took a different direction.  The image and sentiment are new at DRS Designs. 
Thanks for dropping by.  I really appreciate it!

  5. So much fantastic art Nancy. You did have a fun weekend. I love the idea of glitter in my hair rather than grey. Smile. Thanks for sharing them with us at Art Journal Journey. It was fun seeing these creations. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

  6. OMG Nancy so many amazing creations. Your Sheldonisms are awesome, and love your BJ pages.

  8. A super collection of makes Nancy, you have been busy! I love the first journal page, I must have lots of strands of glitter in my hair, I gave up dying it years ago, they are all fabulous though. The Stamperia card is gorgeous, I think this is my favourite Stamperia collection and the recipe cards are a great idea, super inking on the final card - I should think you need another weekend to rest after creating all of these!

  9. Awesome creations Nancy! I love your first page, her sparkly hair is gorgeous and your forest card is stunning, love the papers, I need to add them to my wish list! :)
    Take care, Tammy

  10. Wow, so many fabulous pages and cards today - live them all! The grey hair of your beautiful green eyed lady is amazing, it reminds me that my hair could do with some TLC as our hairdressers are closed at the moment with lockdown 😉. The Forest Stamperia card is so beautifully layered too! Wishing you a wonderful week! Hugs, Jo x

  11. What a lovely idea to describe grey hairs as strands of glitter and it's a lovely painting too.
    I read all your Sheldonisms and enjoyed and then got distracted trying to find from Mr. Google what Sheldonism is. Not sure I am any the wiser.
    The cards are great too. The one with the deer is very complex.

  12. All your work is amazing! I esepcailly like the "deer" card!

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
