Sugar and cream..

Hello my friends.

Just a quick post for Paint Party Friday..




I have been having fun painting in my journal again.
Once again I used acrylic paints along with some
water-color crayons.



I did the drawing of the coffee cup onto some
book paper and then I cut it out and used
modge podge to apply it.
and then I used water-colors to paint it..



Like I said this was so much fun..
And the cool thing is I thought this up
all on my own.  So maybe I am finally learning
something..




We are out camping again at the lake..
So I will catch up with you when I get back..

Hugs, Linda

I need to use some of my cool stamps, that I never really know what to do with, and stamp on beautiful papers and cut them out!!! Thank you for sharing your process and I adore your coffee mug page...as I read and type this with my mug of java...black with sugar! Xox kath
