Tea Stands for Tuesday - 10-19-21


I'm running late but it is still Tuesday where I live so I have time to join the tea party at Elixabeth's.  If you haven't visited the party before here is the link.  



I have plenty of tea.  This morning I'm drinking Lady Grey.  One of my favorites.




As long as I don't care if my house is clean, I think I'll play.  Did you play with paperdolls when you were a child.  I did.  One of my favorite things to do.  I believe if you click on the image and save it then you can print a page of Halloween paperdolls for yourself.  

Enjoy a cozy autumn day.

Tea Stands for Tuesday - 10/12/21

 


(from somewhere on the internet)

Hello Tea Party friends.  The above picture seemed perfect for our Tea Tuesday.  I am so glad Elizabeth continues to hold this get together every week.   Anyone can visit her at Altered Book Lover.

Some time ago I was given a Gelli plate for monoprinting.  The idea has been quite popular but I wasn't really on the bandwagon.   I haven't been creating much art for awhile and I think the person who gifted me thought it would be a nudge to get back at it.



 


My first try.


Prints done so far.

You can see I tried it on one card.  I think it would be useful for backgrounds in collage work.  I'm not sure where the technique will take me but it was fun to experiment.

If anyone creates Gelli prints I'd love to hear your ideas for creating and using them.

Another Owl

Speaking of owls, as I was a couple of days ago, here is a card I made some time ago.




I was going through some of my older art pieces.  Trying to get some inspiration.  The owl is a hand carved rubber stamp I created during a brief period of stamp carving I went through.  

I seem to like to try different things, like stamp carving, and then move on to something else.  Maybe it is curiosity or maybe I have a short attention span.

I think I will get those old stamps out. This is the perfect time of year to use the owl stamp.

Anyone carve their own stamps?

Welcome October

We usually have beautiful weather during the month of October here in Northern California.  I hope to get out and about to enjoy some of the beauty nature offers.

Tea Stands for Tuesday 8/3/21

Good morning.  Here I am joining everyone at Elizabeth's blog for a cup of tea.  I don't manage that every week so I'm kind of proud of myself.  Lol!


My tea is ready and there is a  slice of this bread in the toaster.  I like to try new to me breads.  This one is called Honey Rye Porridge bread and has just about every kind of flour in it you can think of.  It is tasty but I was hoping for more rye flavor.




Here is my latest watercolor.  I find painting with watercolors a little challenging.  No covering up errors.  On the other hand, I like the delicate or fragile feeling I can sometimes capture.

Hope everyone has a good week.
