Almost Friday...

Hey my friends..  I can't believe that Friday is almost here!!
I am back to show you just a little of what I have been
playing around with. 

This week over at the 
The color is purple.



This is a tiny canvas..  They are so fun to play with.
I used my watercolors here on this canvas. 



And this stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp I got on Vacation. 



I also have been playing with my art journal



I am not the best at these yet..  But practice make perfect. 
And I do have a lot of fun playing with my paints in my journal.



I do have a couple of other pages I have done in my journal.
But they are not quite done yet..
I have been thinking about incorporating some of my tags I have 
already made into my journal..  We will see..

To see all the other entries you can hop over to



I do hope everyone out there has a wonderful weekend..
And I do want to THANK YOU so much for all your sweet comments. 

Till next time my sweet friends.. 

Hugs, Linda
