Another cloudy day!

  1.  The weather has been rainy almost every day, for the last three weeks, and the  report is for it to continue for another week!   The puddles in our driveway make
    the birds happy!

I have been on vacation,  not much of a

chance to work in the flowers but picked some. 

Had fun  in my art room with a block of wood.

Having fun with my paper wall tape with holes!

 I had taken a class and the instructor used this tape that was used by carpenters. I found it in her shop but it was $11.00 , plus shipping. So I went on a search in the building supply stores and no one had it! Then I found it on a bidding site and I went a little crazy and ended up with an entire box. Just playing with it on my canvas I used it three different ways. I place the white tape on my canvas, the craft color backing I also put on my canvas with matte medium, and then used some more as a stencil with white gesso. I love the texture of the tape, it feels like watercolor paper with holes all over.

I had fun using it on a paper bag as a gift wrap. I plan to
use it in my stash art journals, and may try it as tabs in them also.
