Black and White

Black and White is the theme this week for Theme Thursday.  I love this woman's attitude, nothing but First Class for this lady!. I loved all the hats my mother and grandmother had with the tulle veils, they added such an air of mystery when the veil was pulled down.  Do jump over to the Theme Thursday challenge blog to see all the wonderful entries for this week's theme.  I hope you are having a First Class day - cheers!

Soartful - Shy Beauty

As soon as Joanie walked into the room, she could feel all eyes were upon her.  Never one for accessorizing, somehow she had made another fashion faux pas -  perhaps the boots were wrong for this outfit?  Sigh...would she ever get it right?

OK, I think Joanie is really reflecting my own fashion sense!  This is my entry for Soartful Saturday, image provided - and altered!  Cheers!

Lots to Do

The challenge on Lots to Do is 'Black and White.'  I would appreciate any input on black outline pens...I am very frustrated trying to find one that moves smoothly, does not bleed and that I can make a fine line with!!  I tried ten Marvy dual end black pens at Michaels yesterday and the fine point ends were all dry!  I ended up with a different Marvy pen but as you can see, it bleeds.  Also, while we are chatting pens, what do you like for a white pen?  Hope your day is rolling along smoothly!  Cheers!

4x4 Friday

The challenge this week on 4x4 Friday is Mail Art.  This is a page I made for a 4x4 Women and Wings book. Cheers!

Crazy Amigo - Ink and Water

The challenge this week for Crazy Amigo is 'Ink and Water.'  The technique used is to apply distress inks onto a craft sheet, spritz it with water and then lay the paper down onto the craft sheet.  I used my new fave distress inks: tumbled glass, spun sugar and crumbled olive.  I love the soft, mottled background this creates.  Have fun playing today!  Cheers!
