Paint Party Friday - Week 19 - Cheerleading Octopi and a Journal Page

This week I went back to creating index cards for my ICAD (Index Card A Day) project,  playing with my Neocolour watercolour crayons some more and I also did another journal page for my Walking in my World Journal.

One of the silly ones I did last week was an Octopus Cheerleader. (Where the heck did THAT idea come from???) And - yikes! - this week brought more!

Cartwheels...

Star Jumps...

Splits...

Cheering jumps...

Y M C A
(Okay - I'm a little crazy this week....)

My grapes - getting larger...

Seagulls in flight...

A Mallard duck on the river...

Hope you had a great week and got some paint on your hands! Have fun at Paint Party Friday!
