Paint Party Friday and Art Journals Journey

Yes it's FRIDAY!!!!!! 
The sun is SHINING and it WARMER!!!!
That's the really big news of the week ♥ 
Was in the mood for a bit more art this week...this morning actually. 
Nothing big just a page in my journal and adding a stamping to my WIP.
I don't have very many stamps...well at least I didn't. I stopped at a resale shop and they had a big gallon sized Ziploc plastic bag stuffed so full of stamps they had to use packing tape to keep it closed. Only $5 and it was half price shopping day. So for $2.50 I got a bunch of really cool stamps. 
And so I am learning the ends and outs of using a rubber stamp. Must use more ink and be careful where you get the ink :) 
The left over paints from the background went on anther page for another background...
There was also a dragonfly stamp so I used it on the WIP ....
....and I think I finally see where this one is going :) I'll give it a day or so to be sure. Why hurry at this point. 
I got some pictures of my youngest grandson wearing his felted wool hat.... which my daughter said he thinks is "CLASSIC" ..

They have been hit with some big snowfalls the past two weeks so he's gotten good use out of it !

  1. I enjoyed your blog this week, Carol. Your new (?) stamps find is a real steal! You are off to a good start using them. I loved seeing your grandson and his wonderful hat.

  2. Well, aren't YOU the lucky stamper. Good for you. I don't seem to get those bargains, but I was thrilled to read you got so many, especially if they are as cool as that butterfly.

    Just had to stop by from AJJ and see you. Loved the pictures of your grandson. He's a sweetie, but he wouldn't want to know I said it (grin).

  3. much stamps you got for less money! Congrats!
    Have fun with this new treasures !
    Great start with the pages! Thank you for linking to AJJ!

    Happy weekend Carol!

  6. I love how your art evolves Carol! I have always wanted to play with rubber stamping. Dragonflies... love them! Your Grandson is a handsome boy! He has a "classic" hat AND sled! Enjoy the sun AND wind today Carol! Hugs!

  7. Very nice work as always.:))

  8. Good price on the stamps! Nice start the hat, the quotes and the painters garden planters!! Adorable all of it!

    Hugs Giggles

  9. what a bargain Carol! But you know, ebay and sites are so saturated with people wanting to sell stamps that when I begin purging again I'll be donating them or practically giving them away too. I honestly have HUNDREDS-especially since I had inherited all my older friend's stamps when she died. If there's anything special you'd be looking for just shoot me an email. Have fun with your stamping. Love those backgrounds so far. And your grandson looks mighty fine in that wonderful hat!

  10. What a steal!! Your stamp shopping. Love your journal page. Very cute grandson.

  11. Wow, that's quite a bargain!! One can never have too many stamps ;-) Love your backgrounds, and the WIP is starting to look really good!

  12. Love seeing your WIPs ~ and what an AWEsome find at the resale shop! As for warming weather ... looks like I'll be seeing some too this week! Looks like daytime temps in the 40s and nothing below 0 at night. Finally ... it'll feel like spring is really on her way!

    Take care and merry creating!

  13. that palette planter is amazing!!!! and of course your artwork is wonderful...xx

  14. Lovely journal art page.. have fun playing with your new stamps. Have a cheerful day:)
