how are you doing this Wednesday morning?

Using my newfound lettering skills...isn´t the word
HI just the perfect word to use when practicing.
I have around 20 different versions of this fabulous
little word.
I combined it here with some flower cut outs using my
Slice machine,,,my newest studio toy,,,and a great
way to use up that paper stash.

I recently finished a lettering course with Lori Vliegen.

My penmanship leaves a lot to be desired but I really feel like I have
made some headway and I really enjoy doing these one syllable words.

This is also a good way to use up all those leftover papers.

My paper stash is thrilled that I am finally using some of it.

Once I started I could not was so much fun!

I kept on going........

Then I switched to sepia ink.

Then I even started speaking French!!!

If you want to improve your penmanship go on over to Lori´s blog
and sign up for her Letter Lab class. She is a great teacher and the
class is so much fun!!
Thanks Lori....I really enjoyed myself.

Staying Warm

I normally love the cold but this cold spell we have been
having is even too much for me.
My fireplace has been my friend in the last much
so that I had to paint it.

I hope you are staying warm.

Out My Patio Door

This was taken yesterday morning.
Yes, I live out in the middle of nowhere
but I love it out here in the countryside....away from the
hustle and bustle of the city.

The winter sunshine was trying to break through. It finally
did and we had a wonderfully sunny winter day.
I hope your weekend is full of sunshine.

Color Chart

Made some quick cards with Gouache.

Spent last weekend in a Gouache workshop.

I really like the consistency of Gouache. After doing these
color charts I kept going and made a few cards with
the same idea.

Enjoy your weekend.
