getting my art on....

 tonight i was having a good time
doing a little watercolor play
with a field of yellow daisies.....
i have a plan for it
but it's a secret - for now.
 then i took my second class
online from Teresa McFayden
called Paintbrush Adventures....
 i have never done much with 
realistic looking faces
and Teresa is inspiring me to push 
the limit with my watercolors...
it reads....
she knew she was meant for 
bigger and better
and...
yes she is!

Flat Fanny goes to France...and more!

I am working right now on a journal that you will see alot of. 
It's based on Idiomatic Speech - Idioms. I am pretty busy with other art projects 
and a new top secret line of products 
( coming to a store near you later this summer )
Above shows Idiom#3 - She has her head in the clouds.
I always liked that phrase
and she literally does here....
 
It's been a lean year of pics of Flat Fanny's travels...
but Saucy Chick Sherry took Fanny with her
to France this summer. Here is Fanny with her
latest purchase. Fanny bought a bought an Absinthe Spoon in
 St. Remy France at a real Brocante. What a world traveler she is!
 Sherry also took a mini Art Journaling workshop with me
earlier this week. These are her two pages here 
with this sweet little lambie pie
 And these two pages below are mine...
minus the journaling. 
Next blog post, i will show you the finished piece 
and what you can do with these pages when you are finished

Happy Super Moon weekend!!!
Get outside tonight and see the moon

Fanny goes a Glamping

 Summer has begun and boy oh boy do Fanny and I need a long weekend... or two or three! We spent the weekend at the Tall Pines Trailers in the Trees Rendezvouz. It was fabulous... and hot. So fanny spent some time in the trailer trying to keep cool.
 Pretty exciting being in the same place as 62 other trailers... teardrops, vintage trailers, airstreams, canned hams.... all of them in one spot
 I didn't decorate as much as i normally do because Brent was with me and he doesn't like all the fru fru that there is to glamping. But there are some parts of it that he thinks are cool.
 For example...
 He did like showcasing his little '56 Chevys and trailer slot cars. And they were very well received... probably could have sold them but they are his prize collection- and there is Fanny again. We had a bit of a hard time keeping her away from the fireball.
 and of course there were pink flamingos
 and my newest art piece... a $3 stool that i turned into a 
mixed media creation.
 Ahhh, the joys of glamping. I still feel that I sleep better in the trailer than in my house. It's just so amazing and lovely in there.

 so until the next time....
HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU!!!
