Hi everyone. We have a stormy day here, and even tornado warnings as some of storms are supposed to be severe. It's not usual for us to get tornado warnings, although we do occasionally get them. I had planned to go out but think I will make it an art day at home instead. Maybe I can even finish Harry Potter book 5 that I am listening to since I am rereading (or this time listening) to all 7 books and enjoying them once again.
But for my post today I will share some already made art with you.
Summer weekday fun has just about flown away like this girl in my tag. I am linking her up to Tag Tuesday and an Anything Goes challenge.
And I have some eyes to share for Gill's challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I started with this orange painted page, and some punched paper circle stickers. Then I stamped the owl, his hat and also his glasses.
The glasses were a little tricky since they were too thin to cut out the centers, so I restamped the owl's eyes within them and colored them to match the owl. Then after attaching them to the owl himself, I used some clear drying glossy accents to create the lenses. And of course he needed a nice top hat to finish him off.
And I finished off my Dakota travel journal yesterday morning.
You can see how thick it came out.
And this is a lousy photo (sorry) but here's the final cover.
And for all of you who remember my driveway situation from my T Day post this past Tuesday, the good news is we have someone coming Friday to redo the whole driveway and fix the drainage. The bad news is that it is going to cost quite a lot of money, but we can't fix the wash out ruts without renting a tractor and buying several loads of gravel (never mind the time), so it is worth getting someone to do it. But the good news is that we are going to get some driveway drainage put in (hence the high cost) and hopefully this will keep the driveway from washing away and even get it prepared for being paved in the future.
And to think we've lived here 30 years and never had our driveway wash away that bad. I guess we were lucky being able to fix it ourselves before.
OK, enough from me. Thanks so much for visiting.
