I'm still loving every element of Danielle's book!!!! are a few looks of my "layerGOODNESS" projects.
I went big and small ...12"x12" and 6"x8"

This will go inside my Week In The Life album.

And I think this one will be a super cute scrapbooking page for a lil' one.

The last page was done by gessoing over a stencil versus tracing a pattern. However, the gesso didn't allow much room to move the watercolor as it absorbed it quicker. I still love the result.
Can't wait for the next activity... :)

WHAT A DAY: August 15, 2015

When your man kindly asks if you have a desire to go watch his FAVORITE football team scrimmage in a city that has Fazoli's kindly oblige despite the 91* temps which cause part of your spray tan to rub off on your white shirt :).

Round 1 of Fazoli's - lunch.

This is Tony's "heaven on earth" locale.
 He was so in his element & I loved seeing him so happy to have the time to experience these moments. 
And I love being with him for it.

Round 2 - dinner before going back to Charlotte.

CREATIVEgirl: Creative Challenge #2

Given the music of Jonny Lang;
Watercolor on fabric. Started out really dark and dries extremely faded out. Sort of like Lang's range in music styles. Loud and soft.

WHAT A DAY: WHAT A WEEK! June 19, 2015

Let's just try and avoid the drama as it is still continuing as of today ...and focus on the fun I had in Greenville, SC with Tony.
Day 1:  rain, checked in to Clarion Hotel, facials, and Steak-Out for dinner.  We watched a movie "The Good Lie"on HBO and the new "Naked & Afraid". (also the start of the car drama)

Day 2: breakfast at hotel, run at park nearby, lunch at Stax Omega ( I had Shrimp & Grits), movie "Ant Man" (Tony fell asleep), dinner at Longhorn, and more facials.

Day 3:  switched to Microtel, dinner at Carraba's, started a new book and did a lot of drawing
Day 4: lunch at Bad Daddy's and enjoyed a free banana pudding with strawberries, Tony makes fun of my photo taking, checked in to Days Inn, layed out, redid nails, drew,  ate a sundae (this was when the car drama got to me...i.e. too many desserts.)

Day 5:  off to the mall to waste time, grabbed a new flavor Strawberry Acai Refresher, shopped, lunch at Tijuana Flats, headed to Anderson for the night, counted all of Tony's change, went to see "Southpaw"

Day 6: lunch at Jake's Wayback Burgers, visited SC Botanical Gardens, Krispy Kreme and Enterprise Rental..(yes, the car drama was still going strong)

And the "Egg" was the car I was given...super small but good on gas mileage....It hopefully will get returned tomorrow or Friday when my car is finally repaired....and I say FINALLY!!  I will definitely never go to Big O Dodge...and never deal with the service Advisor Matthew Floyd EVER AGAIN.
