Abstract Backgrounds & Spam

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.  Sorry that you may see this post twice in your reading list, I was having trouble and had to delete the first one, updating was not working.  I'm having one of those days with blogger :)

I created these two cards using an abstract page back in the winter with one of the Life book 2017 lessons.   I decided to go my own way with the finished piece(s) and used them for card backgrounds.   The die cut flowers are by Crealies.

I posted some information yesterday about Spam that I'm getting on blog. "They" are cutting & pasting your comments to appear like a blogger.  I've since deleted the post as I talked about turning off comments completely.   A kind follower was able to contact me with advice that I will follow and see how it goes.  Thank you Annie for going through a lot of trouble to get the message to me :)

I now have comment moderator turned on.


 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Blue and Pink Lady

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have another page to show where I used minimal supplies again.  (Tom bow markers rubbed on craft mat and then 'painted' onto pencil & ink sketch, highlighted with white and black pens). 

All is well here, we are feeling more settled in our temporary home.   




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Quirky Owl

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well, it's hard to believe that we are well into August already!

As I've mentioned before, life is not 'normal' right now and I'm not feeling settled.  I'm happy that I'm able to be creative from time to time but we are also enjoying summer activities and being outside as much as possible. 

This journal page is very much inspired by Tamara Laporte of Willowing Arts, in fact it's from a Lifebook 2017 lesson.  The lesson teaches a class using mixed media and collage, this is a very simple version using minimal supplies.  Most of my art supplies are packed in storage at the moment so I don't have to make any decisions about what to use.




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
