Before going in further have you seen Becky Higgins blog, OMG OMG you must go look RIGHT NOW!! SERIOUSLY GO LOOK THEN COME BACK AND LOOK AT MY PICTURES!!
SO DID YOU GO LOOK???? ARE YOU IN LOVE LIKE I AM......CAN NOT WAIT TILL NOVEMBER, I WANT TWO OF THEM...... LOVE LOVE IT ALL.....SOOOOO HAPPY!!
Ok now let's look at my close ups....
Here is the left side... I like that there's paper stuff this week. The big one is from our bowling last Monday, FUN TIME!! I finally remembered to ask for the copy of our scores. I wrote about the procedure I had done. I"M FEELING GREAT BY THE WAY!! Included my special art piece I made. The bottom is my collage for the 12 on the 12th day, it was all about the food we had made and eaten that day. The weather has been chilly lately so we made chili and corn/cob and cookies. Really looooving this cool wave we are having, so nice and easy to play outside in finally.
Some favorites on this side, THE SUNSET WAS STUNNING, LOVE THIS!! Sweet pictures of the kids and especially my Sienna girl. The bottom one is about Sam and his efforts at getting customers at his golf ball sale he was having. He made $20 but still wanted more customers so we put out cookies and juice to bribe them but it didn't work. Better luck next time Sam, sorry buddy!!
We are in the last home stretch before school next week. Sam's books/computer have arrived and are ready to go....I"m loving them and that he will be home with me and learning together. Summer's things come next week, hers is all on the computer NO BOOKS, this saddens us and we will hang in there though and hope for the best. WE LOVE BOOKS REMEMBER!! Renee is almost ready, needs a few more things and hoping to get her schedule changed a bit. Her chorus class got dropped due to more cut backs, THIS IS VERY SAD FOR US BOTH!! Ok how about a little art now..
I've been inspired lately by a new blog and sweet lady Shahrul, she is always creating something pretty in her pages. I was inspired by her page done in black and decided to play around and this is the result... mind you I didn't want to copy her but took some of her ideas and twist it for me.
I started off putting down some white gesso then some PURPLE crumbled up tissue paper on it. Then came out the black watercolors and black acrylic paint. I let it set a bit then added black cut up netting, just quickly cut out not perfect and gessoed it down and added black/white smash tape ontop then a button. Using a white sharpie pen and white out pen made the circles and flowers around the page. She used a quote with the word NEVER in it so I did also and found the purple beauty sticker to add to it. It reminds me to look for the beauty even in our darkest moments, it's hard but you have to try. Now I got some close ups too!!
Look at that texture and the peeks of purple!!
I also liked the black netting, will use it again
and more purple to see, LOVE IT!

If you have time peek at my previous post also, I went to a crop and worked in my new summer journal inspired by BONITA!! Take a look at what I did, so happy and it was fun!
Enjoy the week ladies and thanks for visiting. We will be enjoying our last week here and I might be a little MIA at times, busy busy with the kids while I can. HUGS!!
