I haven’t colored any images since June and did I ever feel rusty. Hubby told me “it’s like riding a bike”. I had to laugh at that even though it did come back. I used May a Saturated Canary image for Annette’s card. Although, I do not see it in her store anymore. Annette is the queen of CAS cards. Although, if you are a lucky recipient of one of her cards you can see the many layers of her cards. They are clean and elegant and always a treat to receive. So here is my version of CAS.
As you can see totally unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I did see this idea on the Saturated Canary FB group and really liked it. The dark shading isn’t this dark on her face as it looks here.

I’m getting better at just doing it since I started Art Journaling. Before I would sweat it about how to get it perfect.
I have a few big projects I’m working on. On vacation we went to a winery and did the taste testing. Fell in love with the whole experience. I bought the Wine Journal that Moleskine has and have been doing mixed media techniques on the front pages etc. I’ve printed out some of the digi images that MIC has about Paris and will be coloring them and putting them in the book along with Wine O’ Clock image from Saturated Canary. (She is holding a wine glass).
Second project is a book on my 60th birthday as we were on vacation and my two sisters and their families were also there. So I have images that go along with the things we did that week.
Well, this has been a little gabby for me. Thanks for stopping and spending a few minutes with me. Thank you for the love you leave.
