Paint Party Friday

I wish that I had something more complete and new to share.  Another busy busy week in my land.  I did share this photo, as well as a few more, in my last post this week.  This was my greatest painting accomplishment, with my babe.  The photo though, in my opinion, is my greatest artistic accomplishment this week.  So here it is, one more time.


This week I also make one scrapbook page, from an album I am trying to finish, from 2007!  It is nearly done, and thank goodness for that!  I am also finishing up 2008, a completely different style, and would love to move on to more current memories!

This page is pretty important to me.  I journaled on the base layer, then taped, then journaled, then gessoed, then journaled, and taped and gessoed some more.  There is lots of journaling depth here.  I love how it turned out, even with silly chip board letters that I found in an old stash, very hidden away!

And in keeping with the PPF theme, there is gesso and paint all over this page!


Cereal box is a layer under the pic!  Love those boxes...I use them in everything!

The photo color is horrible, I know.  I always, until this very night, take my pics in natural light, but I really wanted to get my post up and done!  The overhead light makes for a yellow mess, but you get the idea.

and my table tonight.  Starting some new new... and an awful happy mess!

  22. That paint on the pumpkin looks awesome! Also, a cereal box? Wow, I wouldn't think of that. Do you just use it for something to paint on, or for the graphics/images on the outside of the box? That is so cool!

  30. Wow! What a funky pumpkin! I also love your CLIMB page. I was a Creative Memories consultant so I remember all those scrapbooking days and wish I still had time to do that...but now I'm devoting more time to art and everything is on computer files. I do hang my kids' photos on the wall and in small frames...but those dear pages are a thing of the past for now.
