My Yellow Cottage


Yellow Cottage
 I used Stamps, Prismacolor pencils, gel pens, pastels.  Barn, doggie, Yellow cottage with Porch, pond surrounded by rocks, trees and white picket fence.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday. Be sure to visit the artists to see the variety of works and learn how to. . .some have videos and introduce a variety of new art how-to.  I thank all of you for the visits and comments. It is helping me tremendously.


 I Kittah sat today. . .he got on the living room window sill and watched the squirrels eat. GAZ made strange little sounds. . .calling to them.  I hadn't heard that before from a Kittah.
 The Fountain is in the background and the birds are lined up waiting their turn.
 At times the clouds look like this.
 The fountain. . .love the looks and the sounds.
 My new windows.
 Sometimes the clouds look like this.
 There is a horse in the window and one outside.
 Both horses are eating the tree. . . a gate separates them.
 Blessings,
Janet

Invitation Tag




















I used stamps and yarn. . .I did draw the kittah beside her. Invitation to go shopping. . .with date, where, what and who (sign up). I did use different color ink pens. I put lattice stockings on her and a hat. I used a regular tag.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for hosting a marvelous art place for us to inspire, comment, share and the videos are amazing. Paint Party Friday is a great place. Be sure and visit the wonderful artists who take part.

I am worried about my daughter and 5 grands in FL just north of Miami. I have been glued to the TV. I have begged them to come up to Tulsa and stay with me and my other daughter and grandson. This is very frightening to me. I just moved from there a year ago. Prayers for their safety, Please.

Finished the Ducks in the water picture. . .


 For the tree, I used Cloth for the leaves.. .. why it wasn't finished 2 weeks ago. I am experimenting with so many different products that I used in sewing. I am finding it exciting to use new and different techniques.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a fun place to learn and share projects, supplies and Ideas.  Paint Party Friday is a Joy.

 There is a fountain across from my place that is refreshing and sometimes has a few ducks.

Gaz' Play toy Tag



                                                                                                      
 I thought of GAZ the new addition to the family.  Feathers, yarn and noise makes him happy.
I used a large tag, covered it with gesso and then added Pastels, markers, gel pen, prismacolor pencils and pens. I also added feather, bell, covered a toothpick with WASHI tape and piece of yarn at the top. This is my first tryout for this medium.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a fun learning experience each week. I appreciate the comments and visits from everyone. Thank you. Paint Party Friday has so many different and varied artists to learn from.  Please try to visit as many as you can, it is truly a fascinating experience.

I used Prismacolor pencils, pastels and sketch pencils.  I have been watching Ovations channel on ATT and learning so many different unique ideas outside the box. Their artists are making landscapes with so many different materials, etchings, etc. Ideas are flowing around me. Practice, practice, practice. . . anything new.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday and all the wonderful comments and advice I receive.
