Fried green tomatoes anyone?
BLTs for lunch!
First sweet corn of the season!
I usually have an entire container consumed before I even get home!
Now...about this card.... I keep trying my hand at watercolor. I'm here to tell you in this instance practice does NOT make perfect. I love the look when I watch tutorials (by the dozens). Then I give it a go...and I feel like I end up with a muddy mess or something resembling a crime scene in a murder mystery or a lingering bruise!
Maybe it's OCD or Type A...I love the look of watercolor - but when that ink starts to wick I nearly want to roll up in a fetal position with my favorite quilt! (Note to self - my black Stazon is dried out - must replenish!) Because of the Stazon issue I had to substitute with brown Stazon...maybe I'll blame THAT instead of my freakish lack of talent. (I know...you will be kind and say "don't be so hard on yourself"....I NEED to be hard on myself - my undergrad is ....wait for it....ART! Feel free to tell me to continue my self-flogging!)
I found this inspirational tutorial on a Poppy Power and just had to try it ONE MORE TIME! If you've never popped over to Poppy Power - I highly recommend it. It will knock the blooms right off your stems! Any stamp from there would make it to my wish list! Gorgeous!
