Third Time's the Charm

 This post may be deja vu for some of you. I accidentally double posted it on Friday and then post-posted it on the 15th. I had to delete them both and then rewrite it again for today. I was just trying to show off the April card kit that I haven't done much with yet.

 I also bought this cute little lightening bug stamp and die set. I also got some glow in the dark embossing powder in hopes of making a really cool card for the July Grand's birthday.

 After making 25 duck cards I have not exactly been in the mood for card making. Instead I have been slopping ink and paint in my art journal at night.

It's nice to not have to worry about a product. I just go and add more layers to the pages whenever I want to. I like making backgrounds. I'm still working on focal points.

Speaking of mindless pleasure, I've been getting used to my new pen and ink set by scratching random designs on my old watercolor swatches. Mindless pleasure. That's what it's all about for me.


  1. A glow-in-the-dark card sounds very cool!!!

    Sometimes mindless fun is the BEST fun.

  2. Colorwork knitting, painting, cards quilting, weaving, spinning-all wonderful ways to make the world around us more beautiful-you're doing it successfully!

  3. Ohh... I love the colors in your journal. Can't wait to see your new cards for your grandkids!

  4. You always amaze me with all of the talents that you have. Even your so-called “slopping on paint” looks better than anything I could do! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Betsy

  5. I have not had a weaving project on the go for months, and seems it will stay that way with Little B and two puppies. Your weaving is a piece of art, mine is so, so simple. Have a wonderful week.

  6. I wondered about the post. . I saw it briefly on my blog reader and tried to open it to find it didn't exist.

    Your art journal looks like fun!

  7. Mindless pleasure is what it is ALL about! There is a knack to backrounds
