Courage...and flowers

This was made for a gal in one of my art groups that has just experienced a close family members tragic death...One of my dear friends is putting a 5X5 fatbook together for her...
It is always so hard losing a loved one and especially before their time...sending healing prayers!!!

Background: acrylic and watercolor

Found flowers and ephemera

This is also my entry in a new challenge group Arty Girlz
with the theme flowers...

The quote says "The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one minute to the next"

Freebie image ...

I have been fiddling and fussing with my blog template (as I am sure you have noticed) recently and just wasn't happy with one thing or another...I finally decided on this black one :0)
I will probably leave well enough alone for now...thanks for bearing with me as I have been trying on new colors and designs!
For your patience I am adding a FREEBIE image from my collection...for you to download.

Happy creating!!!

It's about time...

It's about time I checked in on my blog and gave an account about my whereabouts in the last Month!...a lot has been happenning...

**I got some scary news about my health that made me stop in my tracks... I was just diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer but caught it early enough that it hasn't more about it here : TheARTofhealing Care Page...
**My husband and I had been toying around with the idea of me returning to the work-force, but thankfully it was agreed upon that I would continue to stay home and sell my Art for extra income! So I am going to look into selling for the first time on Etsy...stay tuned as I hope to get a site up and running soon!

**I was asked to become a co-moderator in one of my very favorite Yahoo groups; PaperWhimsy The group is not only a showcase for using Gale Blaire's fabulous images but it is a gathering of some of the most talented artists (I feel) on the I am very excited to begin this fun new adventure!

**I am getting ready to send off several pieces of art to a New Gallery in Gresham, Oregon called RAGING is a glass blowing gallery with featured local artists...I will update you as soon as I can get some photos uploaded...

And if that's not enough...

**My oldest ( DD) has flown the nest and is settled in a Private Christian Liberal Arts University about 3 hrs. away...I really miss her...This will be the first time in 15 years that I haven't had at least one of my three kids at home.

I think you can see that I won't be sitting around wondering what to do with all my free time LOL!

Blue ATC

This is my newest ATC made for the Wednesday Stamper group...the background paper (that I altered with blue acrylic paint) and bird stamp is from Crafty Secrets...I also used a Paper Whimsy image. This will go on the front of a blank journal that I am working on...
