It's Paint Party Friday...

Once again it is Friday.
Once again on Friday we get to go to the best blog party ever.
Paint Party Friday!!
Thanks to our wonderful hostesses with the mostestes!
Don't know what I am talking about or want more info?

I have somehow lost my latest Paint Party folder and cannot figure out what I posted last.
So here is a recap of April since I have not posted since the beginning of April (I think).
This month has been a blur.

I painted some flowers in a vase named
"Flowers for My Mother"

They were so pretty when I had finished the painting and then by morning they would be so dark the flowers looked like blobs. Even under the light, they could not be seen.
I tried to repaint them the way they were but every morning they got darker and darker.

These flowers got a brand new paint job
with some yummy thick texture
and they are staying as bright as when I finished them,
even better...

They are just beautiful, colorful, texture-y, and very, very shiny!

My latest WIP:

I messed up the bottom and the left side with Liquitex Flexible Molding Paste.
I tried doing it in a hurry and that is not the product to hurry up with.
The womderful thing about mixed-media is that almost everything can be covered up and fixed.

And what do you get when you mix and poodle and rain?

Time to go have another cup of coffee and visit the other party goers!
Have a Fantastic Paint Party Friday!
Hugs, Rasz

Big sale and Sizzix giveaway!

I always love a great deal,
especially big giveaways too!
There is a $2500 for 5 lucky people
for Sizzix I found from visiting
the big Tim Holtz products sale over at 

Go HERE to enter for the $2500 from Sizzix

And for the Tim Holtz big SALE,

So I found all this by following links because I saw an ad 
for a big sale on Tim Holtz products.

This all started because I have this MOLOTOW
white paint pen.
It is suppose to have 2 different tips
and I cannot figure out how to change the tips,
or even where the smaller tip is!

So after being extremely frustrated,
I decided to Google it!
Still didn't find instructions
and have been painting and didn't want to get on my computer either.

So in this Giveaway, you get 5 extra entries
for blogging about the giveaway!
Makes sense why I am blogging about it?
And now I get to go back and drool
over Tim Holtz's and Ranger product lines.

Oh wait! No I don't
I am going to take a nap then finish my painting
So I will be ready for Paint Party Friday

Go check out the sales and enter for the giveaway.
I need all the free stuff I can get, plus
who doesn't like a sale or free stuff?

Have a great evening,
Hugs, Rasz

Where is she now?

It's sad to have this last week of April be here.
I have enjoyed Magaly's Challenge SO much
I don't want it to end.

I guess I will have to keep writing and pairing
my writing to my art.
OR...maybe it's time for me to find my muse and get back to the abstract art I love
and pair my art to my writing?
Either way, like all things, it will work if it is meant to, right?

Today's prompt is "Beyond the Ever After".
You can read about it HERE
and also find others participating and follow their links!
I chose Little Red Riding Hood for my poesy today.

Where Is She Now?

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
You took so much care
everyday for your Grandmother
'Til she was no longer there

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
You grew up an enabling hot mess
Your mother was a drunk
And your brother could care less

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
I wish you could have seen
How much your father loved you
But he died when you were just three

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
That nasty wolf changed your life
You felt the need to be loved
And became that wolf's wife

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
From that wolf you finally ran
And found shelter and safety
In the big city, with a real man

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
What has happened to you now
You were so sweet, so smart
Now you run with the street crowd

Oh Little Red Riding Hood
That forest's a memory in your past
For it formed the life you have found now
as an enabling addict that will last.

So that's it for my poem today. Poor Little Red Riding Hood.

YOU have a GREAT day!
Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs, Rasz
