Tuesday, Tuesday, & WOYWW 473

Phi 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Good evening fellow bloggers!  Hi to the Tea gang who are celebrating T Stands for
Tuesday over at Altered Book Lover  hosted by Elizabeth!  Also, a shout out to the
WOYWW bloggers.

I was inspired last week by Jo at Let's Art Journal to do a little art journaling.  She had mentioned For the Boys challenge on Try it on Tuesday.  So this is my late entry.  I have all these mixed media supplies and they just sit, so yesterday and today I played and played!  So an art journal is something I am experimenting with, and if I can link this to her blog.  I have only linked a project one other time to any blog.  So that is an experiment, too!  I was too late, but am linking to Art Journal Journey for Gils, Inspired By Challenge, as suggested by Elizabeth. And I already told you what inspired this art journal page.  

I used Liquitex Matte gel for the base. Next layer was some  TH Faded Jeans Oxide ink.   I then stamped some TH images, & then sprayed with Blueberry Shake Memories Mist through a Heidi Swapp stencil..  I told you I was playing!  Next I used a TH stencil and smoothed on some Heidi Swapp art screen ink. The mans face is from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions, I think.  I have had it for years.  I stamped it in VersaFine Sepia, and used clear EP and heat embossed.  I used a spritz tool to spritz  SU! Chocolate Chip marker  over everything , then added the Washi tape as my finishing touch.

So above  is what is on my desk for WOYWW  over at Julia's..  Now for my drink for T stands for Tuesday:  You see my cup of tea on the table.  These are flowers our former neighbor brought us when she came to visit us in our new home.

Last, here are baby swallows outside our front door, but they are gone now.  They were so cute; I think there were five of them.  We watched mom feed them and then watched as they left.

Scrap Retreat & WOYWW # 472 & T Stands for Tuesday

Phi 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Hello fellow bloggers!  I really have gotten out of the habit of posting to my blog.  But I miss all of you!  I meant to post last week, but I wasn't feeling very well.   I had been to a scrapbooking retreat that week-end and came back with lots of finished pages, but also with a terrible cold and cough.   I feel better tonight, but now hubby has it!  For What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday over at Stamping Ground hosted by Julia I will show you a photo of 21 of 23 pages I finished.  Pretty proud of that number.  I have never done that many pages in such a short time before!  

We had our retreat at a wonderful historical three story home.  So, I took the photo of my finished pages on the great staircase.
Also, before I went to the scrapbook retreat my husband and I went out to eat at one of our favorite places, so will post a photo of that for the T gang at T Stands for Tuesday over at Altered Book Lover.

We love the rolls with special butter, peanuts, salad, and ice water with lemon over at Texas Roadhouse!  Who needs the dinner? LOL

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  I wanted to tell you I found out after my last post that I have not been getting the emails when someone posts, and I have to review them to publish them. For some reason, I got into my blog account and found all of the unpublished comments.   So, I am apologizing if I didn't get back with you.  I now am aware of the problem and will check my blog account.  Thank you for understanding. 
Have a great week!
