Paint Party Friday - Week 15 - Sketchbook and ICAD

This week I had hoped to paint on a canvas but alas, no progress. I did paint in my "Walking in my World" sketchbook/art journal and on some index cards for my ICAD project. It has been a busy week for many reasons but at least I played with paints a bit before it got out of control! 

Index Cards:
Inspired by my Daisies...

By my Pink Daisies...

Looking up through my grape vines at the blue, blue sky...

And some of my sketchbook/art journal pages (pre-writing...)

Fallen Feather

Did you have a productive and fun week? I hope so! I have guests visiting until Saturday so it may take me awhile to visit everyone - but I will eventually! Until then, have a very happy Paint Party Friday
