This week, I was introduced to a blog called, Journal52 (I found it through Pinterest…go figure!).  This site provides you with an art journal prompt each week.  She also has a Facebook page designated just for us to share our art work.

This weeks prompt was, “Rain or Shine.”  Her comment was, “For this week, make a weather related page in your journal. Think of your favorite season or type of weather. You can paint, draw, collage – whatever medium you choose!”  So, I came up with, “Rain or Shine, you are a friend of mine.”


I used a piece of 6×6 watercolor paper from a pad (which, by the way, I will never purchase this pad of watercolor paper again – it is horrible), and sketched it out with a pencil.  I inked it in using a Micron Pigma Pen (05 and 08 size), then begin watercolor using some Inktense Watercolor pencils.  I also added some other colors using my new Kio Watercolor set.  LOVE both of these items!!





Little by little, I was able to combine colors that I wanted to use on the page.  I think it turned out cute – not a masterpiece by any means, but it is a start!





This experience was so much fun and I plan on creating a page once a week using her journal prompts.  It is my favorite stress reliever!  

Who will join me?  IF I can do it…so can YOU!

Until next time…~Pamela





Card Club Fun

Today’s post is one of the cards we created this past weekend at our card club in Jacksonville.  Of course I’m not very original and “cased” this card from Pinterest (The original came from Split Coast Stampers), here.   I did change it up slightly to fit what I had on hand. 

The card is made using our new Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Tag Punch.  This is more versatile than I thought and love the results you get when making cards, as well as, tags.

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch

Here’s the card we made:

Supplies Used:

Paper:  Designer Paper Series, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, and Pool Party

Ink:  Pool Party, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Summer Starfruit

Stamp Sets:  You're Lovely, Gorgeous Grunge

Accessories:  Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, and the Scalloped Tag Punch

To place any Stampin' Up! order, you can visit my site, HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time...~Pamela
