Happy Paint Party Friday and Daddy Day!

First, thank you Kristen and Eva for hosting another
Paint Party Friday. The best blog hop ever!
Go HERE for more info. 

Second, Happy Daddy Day this weekend to all of you 
GREAT dads, and also all of you who are filling
the shoes of an absent Dad!

Third, an art story I am sure you can identify with.
At least I hope so because I do not want to feel alone.

I was not very creative this week.
Actually barely creative is how my week went.
And it went by soooo fast, the week that is.
Looking back I have no idea what I did.

To the story:
I got an itch to get out my messy making stash
and create some mixed media.
Got canvases prepped, covered my art area AND
a couple of TV trays AND part of the kitchen table 
in all kinds of stash of mixed media ideas.
Papers, lace, stencils, acrylic paints, gel mediums and energy.
I was good to go, I thought.

Then I stared at it all...and lost all inspiration.
Nothing...no ideas...no desire...UGH!
So I looked at this mess strung out all over
for the entire week UNTIL

I got a paper bag from the local grocery store.
Here if you do not bring your own bags to the store with you,
you can purchase a brown paper bag for 5 cents.
It turned out to be a GREAT purchase.

This brown paper bag gave me all the inspiration I needed to create.
Who would of thought that all the artsy stash in the house
had given no inspiration, but a grocery bag would do the trick!
It reminded me of how toddlers would rather play with the box 
a toy comes in over the toy itself.

Here are the pics of what I did so far.
After blogging I plan on finishing it today.


The background on the bottom pic is the finished background so far.
I need to add a little washed out color to the pieces still and collage
them on top of the background.

This is where I need your help!
Which design do you like better.
The top or bottom layout?

Share your uninspired time or an inspirational time.
I would love to read it!

Enjoy PPF, Daddys Day,
and Every Day!

It's a Beautiful Day for Paint Party Friday!

Happy Paint Party Friday!
I am feeling so much better this week.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes,
it really means so much to me.

I was amazed to see I was featured today at the Party!
This just makes today so special for me.
Thank you to the wonderful Hostesses
for keeping this weekly party going!
Click HERE to learn more and join in.

This last week had me spending a lot of time resting.
One fun thing I did to rest was doodle.
Doodling is so much fun and very relaxing.
It's been way to long since I have done any.

I used a watercolor background which did not show up too well.
Do you see a face in there?

I did a couple small watercolor and ink pieces that I framed.

and a little whimsical

Which style do you like best?

Have a FANTASTIC PPF and a WONDERFUL weekend!

Happy PPF! Short post today...

I hope you are starting off the upcoming weekend with fun.
Thank you as always to our wonderful hostesses
for keeping this worldwide party going over 8 years!

I have bronchitis and gave in to taking antibiotics today.
For this post, here are the top three happies of the week.

First, I got HAPPY MAIL.

This cute box held something that WAS made just for me!

this picture does not do justice to the beauty of my new boho wrap.
Through Instagram, I met Linda of Boho Bliss Creations!
She is an amazing artist with leather and beads.
She has lots of gorgeous jewelry in her Etsy Shop
and each bracelet is made to order.
 Of course she has much more than just bracelets.
I have been wearing this bracelet constantly since it arrived.

The second happiest happie of the week was this.

I hope the colors show up better on your monitor than it does on my old laptop I am using.
Playing around and experimenting with watercolors and ink created this.
It was so pretty I put it in a frame on my coffee table.
I hope to do more of this style, post bronchitis.

My third happy was all the wonderful comments you left last Friday!

That is it for me today. Time to go lay down.
I will be out visiting later.
Happy Paint Party Friday!
