Yellow Cottage by the Water

I borrowed an idea. . .the cards that come in the pack of printer ink for printing photos. . Some said they used them with ink. I used the shiny side with prismacolor Premier ink both ends small/large. I also use pastels and acrylic. Using the shiny side was a challenge. I enjoyed painting my faves.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a wonderful place to share and learn Paint Party Friday . . .Love the comments, thank you so much they are so helpful and friendly.

 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.

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.
