Playing Around with Supplies

 
 
I've been playing around with Gelatos and Inktense Blocks this week.  Sometimes I can't even remember what I've used.  There's definitely gelatos here, but what's underneath??  It could be Intense.  I've been trying Inktense on the first layer because it is permanent.
 
 
 
On this next one I had to put acrylic paint on the top because Gelatos weren't covering well.

Focus on the Good Stuff

 
I hate to admit it, but if left to my own devices, I'm a "glass half empty" kind of gal.  The outlook that made me a good project manager, managing risk and always imagining the bad things that could derail the project, can be discouraging.
 
Sometimes I need to be reminded to "focus on the good stuff".  And there really is lots of it, isn't there?

Thank You


It's always good to show your appreciation for things that others do for you.  And they do so much!

A Little Encouragement

 
Don't underestimate the power of a little encouragement.

 
A lovely lady at the Vancouver Artist Trading Card Group, Rose, told me that she loved the ATC's I had made with postage stamps.

 
That's all it took.

 
Before I knew it, I'd made six new ones!

 
How can I offer encouragement today?  A kind word to a friend or stranger.....a "like" or a "heart" on social media.....a comment on a blog - there are lots of ways!  I'll try to remember to take the time.

A Little Salt and Some Doodles

 
Strathmore Watercolor Journal

 
I added a little salt to the wet watercolor and let it dry.
