Saturday Playdate - Paint, Nature, and Faces

 Yesterday, I had some free time and two of my grandsons, so we decided to do another session of #Wanderlust2022Class.  We had a blast with these and I thought I would share them with you.  They were painted with some very interesting items!

This was mine.  I am linking it up to **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* where Erika's January theme is Let's Face It. 

This one ws done by my grandson, Lewis (age 6).  He said he was going for a tornado look.  I think he accomplished his mission don't you?
This one was done by my grandson, Hollis (age 4). He said black was too dark for him!  
We had a lot of fun.  

Thanks for visiting!  




  1. These are great Nancy. I love that eye you drew. And keeping it all black and white makes it so dramatic. Lewis certainly did create a tornado effect. I smiled at all the TH people he added. I like Hollis' too. Abstract art is calling him. You must have had a blast with the boys and your supplies. Thanks for sharing these with us at Art Journal Journey and squeezing in another face piece before the month wraps up. I appreciate it. Enjoy the end of the month. hugs-Erika

  2. Oh Nancy I love how you shared not only your own artwork (which is amazing may I add) but also you fabulous Grand children's work too.. artists in the making.. must take after their dear Grandma :) What fun you all had, brings a lump to my throat thinking of the fun times my children and I used to have creating together. Blessed memories.
    Wishing you a super week ahead Hugs Tracey x

  3. You all made beautiful pieces, how nice to paint together! That must have been great fun! And thanks for joining us at AJJ, much appreciated. Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  4. Beautiful art from you and the boys Nancy!
    Happy new week.

  5. What a lovely journal page you created. I love that quote. It is hilarious. You have a wicked sense of humor. I also love the eye and the lady, too.

    Your six year old grandson made a fabulous tornado. I guess you (and I) probably know a lot about tornadoes. Thanks so much for sharing these three journal pages with us at Art Journal Journey using Erika's theme. So clever.

  6. Wowzer, I sure do love your painted page! LOVE that quote too! LOL! Looks like lots of fun with both you and the boys for sure! I love all of the creativity here and I'm so glad that you've shared them!! Crafty hugs

  7. These are wonderful!! I love the dark ones but I like the way Hollis is thinking too:)

  8. Aaw bless Hollis,, black was too dark for him. I think it is lovely that you are encouraging the boys to do some crafting with you and I am beginning to think I am missing a lot with not joining these Wanderlust classes I see so many of you do. Lewis certainly achieved the look he wanted and those poor males caught up in the tornado. ouch!
    Love the eye you painted and the way you have your lovely lady sitting there - fabulous words too just perfect.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  9. WOW, Nancy! Your page is absolutely beautiful and I love your sense of humor, too! The sentiment is perfect here! And I absolutely LOVE the pages made by your grandsons, Lewis and Hollis! I really like Lewis's tornado and Hollis's lighter look! Simply fabulous! Thanks also for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment there! HUGS, Sharon

  10. Sounds like you had a great time with your grandsons! And I love your first page; so strange that you made something that is buzzing through my head as an idea for a long time... It is great!

  11. So intense and thought-provoking! It's awesome to just play and let things out! I also just loved seeing y'all's photo at Universal. I hope we get to go this year too. xx, Autumn

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
