Here is a new journal page done with pencil,
Pitt Pens and watercolor pencils.
I sketched it at the table where it was
set up in top of a large sketch book...
then photo'd it to refer to, if needed, in
by the computer where I do my work of this type.
If you don't know who Wallace of Wallace and Gromet

"I wonder where I will find Missy sleeping
next..she is worse than a two year old ! "
of was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz
(there are some out there maybe
too young to know what this means)
clicking her heels together. and saying, "There's
no place like home"
This is how I felt a few weeks ago returning
back here from Eastport.
So, just now I put it together for
a front door hangydangy.
and the creation is on the top panel
the Victorian look.
This 50 year old door has had many a nail,
screw or staple in it and been speckled and painted over and over
so stapling this up seemed the best way to go :- )
The shoes could have sparkles added but I like
this look. I heard the woman having the tag sale, say to
her husband, "Those were Brianna's shoes and
she never wore them.."

a couple have been sent in already and
I'm sure you'll like seeing them later..
now.... here is a fun find from Eastport Maine this
year--some purple pottery from the Dancing Dogs
Pottery shop on Water St.....this tray I like to use for
making me feel pampered etc in the am usually for coffee
and wheat round. It needs a solid color mug and to find
a color that tied in with the tiny purply fruits was a little jump for joy !

Just took this on my front porch
for another window picture as
I am collecting them with my camera.
I liked the layers here . There's the cat
dummy board I painted long ago that
has become the Watch Cat for my house
and then there's me in the reflection
and across the street the old barn that
is for sale with the house of an old friend..
I love a mystery and here is one in a window.
You just have to use your imagination
here and cook up a plot.

Making a neck piece with old t shirts was a fun
thing to do--I saw the directions in
Martha Stewert's Whole Living... and HAD to try it
Here I have combined two sets of colors
with a vintage pin I KNEW someday, I'd
use in a "project" of some kind. The sky is
the limit in making these.
Perhaps, you can get the easy directions
on her site.

This is an Every Day Matters group Challenge #239
with the theme of "Something that scared me."
In the dream I was at a deli counter
trying to buy some pearls when a policeman
stood by me with his gun holstered, looming large.
I was terrified he would shoot me mistakenly--
- thinking I was robbing them of the
pearls.....pretty nutty situation, but
a dream I never forgot. Now that I look
back I can recall a traumatic situation
where I was wrongly accused by an authority
figure--which crushed me to pieces
Maybe that's a rather late

Then that side is inked with the pen and it is now ready to add color
with watercolor pencils, waterbrushes and
some acrylic paints
,...Mellencamp has a good beat...
Here I used Black acrylic (in the bottle) paint for
the solid rich background I happen to
it's now ready for color...
I just hope the colors sing and bring the delight I felt.
You'll notice the fairly new winnaname logo I have designed
which goes on some works. It surely amazed me
how this glass container in the fridge keeps the berries
just like fresh ones
