Remembering those that GAVE their lives for our FREEDOM!
Have a BLESSED MEMORIAL DAY.
I have ONE poppy plant in the garden...one GORGEOUS bloom every year. It is so difficult for the kiddos NOT to pick it and bring it to me..I asked them this year to leave it "PLEASE" and we shall see if we can get MORE poppy plants to grow for years to come from the tiny seeds that fall:) Oh the sweetness of youth.
Maybe getting a little bit loopy here with all this water-coloring. Still having fun!
Jennifer Raza showed us a fun watercolor and salt technique...her card was a space scene. I pretty much added some DOODLED FLOWERS to the mix..and a few fizzy flutterbugs .
The top four Kiddos just got back from their road-trip to Texas with cousins and the Grands. It's been a different ten days for us left with only two little-ones at home. Kind of peaceful...lots of good creative time.:))
I wanted to enter one more time over at VIRGINIA'S VIEW with this WILD STITCHING inspired by Wida's card over at CASE STUDY # 191.
With all the water coloring going on at OCC WATERCOLOR for Card MAKERS there's a LOT of baby wipes left over with GREAT color on them. I just felt like stitching some flowers,
Oh FREEHAND!! UGH! ..... Many fears in the area of freehand. I so often over work and MUDDY up the colors. I actually thought I could handle the first homework Jennifer Rzasa gave today ...The SPLATTER and a tree trunk. here is my first go at it.
I just kept playing....
I DID come up with something worthy of a card though:))
The kiddos and I have been playing A LOT with all the new ideas. Making cards out of the projects has taken a bit because we just want to keep on experimenting! Nevertheless..here are cards inspired by DAY 1.
I just had to take part in this weeks CASE Study Challenge #189 where WIDA MILLER is the muse for five weeks..YAY! I'm taken by Wida's Fresh style that always has an element of surprise. She makes me giggle, too, with some of the things she says.
I cased my card based on both of Wida's cards...her original and the Case of her CASE for this week.
LOVE her signature bow with it's pretty flowing tails. See how I tried to copy that? I used my heat tool while the tails were wrapped around a pencil. Still not as happy with the flow of mine though. WHAT is your secret Wida?
Looking forward to playing all five weeks!
Thanks for looking
