Paint Party Friday....

Today I joined the Fabulous Amy in one of her FREE on-line classes. We did portrait painting  on dried used teabags. It was a fun class and I got a whole passel of new information and techniques. Plus when the mailman came I got my free ATC she made a few says ago!!! It was my lucky Amy day!!!
Just wish it had been my lucky hair day :0( 
I colored my hair today to hide those silver roots that are multiplying every day. I bout the same intense dark auburn I always buy....but when I took the towel off my head my hair was BLACK! Not just very dark brown ....BLACK!!!
I checked the box and it was right ...but when I looked at the bottle of tint it said BLACK :( so I checked the box again ..cause I knew the top was sealed when I opened it.... I didn't look at the bottom before using it. Someone had opened it and re-taped it . 
Hubby says it looks good...I'm still adjusting.

So what do you think?

Butterfly Effect---- Stamp with Zentangles

Joining in with the ever so fun people over at 
the Butterfly effect!
This weeks theme was "Stamp It!"  and I realized then that I really don't have very many stamps at all and what I do have are very small. 
I did finally find one in my stash....must organize the stash SOON!.... and this is the card I created with it. 
I love having all of these hand made cards around..they are coming in handy . 
Please check out the other fantastic artist  and their wonderful creations for this week.

Butterfly Effect---- Something is Watching

This weeks theme at Butterfly effect is "EYES"
I decided to do another 5"x7"  blank note card on watercolor paper. It's a pen and ink drawing with ink color washes.
It's the first day of spring and I spent some time outside just breathing in fresh air ans taking pictures. 
Only one day left of my surprise vacation ans then it's back to work :0( Oh well it has been fun!
Check out the other great art here...

Sunday Sketches

This is my Great-Niece and she just turned 17 so I wanted to try drawing her picture. I tried several times before I finally got two that actually look like her. So she gets one and so does my sister.
