Hope everybody had a creative weekend. The DH and I took the "playhouse" out for a maiden trip over the weekend. We went up to Tehacahpi, a small mountain township about an hour from here. Kids and Grand kids came up and spent Saturday night with us. While waiting for them to arrive I got out my art journal and started playing. I drew it first with a black felt pen. I used some water color felt pens to color it in, then took a damp paint brush and ran the colors outward, crating the background colors. Once it was dry I add a few more details, like the stitching marks, loops around the flowers and some curly cues. It was a rather quick and easy page to do and I really enjoyed the quiet time before the troops arrived.
