A Fond Farewell to Paint Party Friday!

11 Years ago Kristin and I started Paint Party Friday (PPF) as a weekly venue to encourage ourselves to paint more and share what we have done during the week with others doing the same. And while we haven't participated much due to increasing frantic lifestyles, we have kept working behind the scenes to have PPF available to those who wanted to paint, create art and party with art friends. But this is the last week of PPF. Our 11th Anniversary. So I went through my blog and was amazed at all the paints, doodles and drawings I created - both before and for PPF.

So here is the collage of some of my Favourites. Please feel free to wonder through as there may be others you prefer. Now I am again inspired to create more! When I do, I will most likely post to my Instagram instead of here.

a few of my Favourite... creations!

Thanks to all of you who have visited over the years. I have seen amazing work from you and others and have thoroughly enjoyed our interactions!

  6. Thanks for the opportunity to do fun art and post at your linky party, i joined in in 2013. And made lots of Friday blog friends through PPF


  7. Blogger is an amazing reference for us all, no matter how many times we post our creativity. I too like Valerie will think of you all every Friday, just like every Friday I could not get to play and display. Thank you for giving us a super platform to meet like minded people, I hope our path will cross again in blogland as it is all that I choose to use now.
    Happy Paint Party Friday and creative best wishes Tracey xx

  11. You've picked such fun pieces for your collage, EVA - it's so wonderful to see them together and remember the posts! (I'm getting emotional looking at them, but I'm glad I'll be seeing more on Instagram.) Thank you for being such a great friend and PPF partner all of these years! I couldn't have done it without you! <3
