MMM: You and Me

Another Monday pretty much came and went. 
I wish I could/would post these earlier in the day, I will try harder. 

Today was a good day (in comparison to the weekend, which was bloody awful)
This evening, I took my daughter shopping...
She needs an outfit for a trip she's going on.
Her first trip to far away lands without the parentals ...(still in TX lol)
I wanted her to say she was going to die without us, but no such luck :(
She's pretty woohoo about it...& I guess I should be glad for that. 
Anyway, 4 different stores tonight, FOUR! & I'm zonked!

Music Matters Monday!

The art...
this page is a little whimsy & bright.
 it was fun!
there are several layers here because I couldn't see where I was going with it...
So I just kept adding. loved the process!

What was used:
paper scraps
mod podge & golden matte medium
all kinds of acrylic color: buttercup, turquoise glitter, coral blush, 
bluegrass green, true blue, lettuce, black & white
copic markers in black & cerise
white gelly roll & black prisma fineliner
black soot distress ink

MMM: Fade Into You

Hi & welcome to
 Music Matters Monday!!

The art...

So seeing the hearts, I think my head was on a Valentine cloud as I did this page.
I guess maybe thinking about stuff the kids need for their parties,
& all the decor & goodies on display at the grocery store etc.
Not so much my fave page, but that's ok. :)

"You'll come apart and you'll go black"

What was used:
tissue paper
acrylic paints.
white Sharpie poster-paint pen.
Faber-Castell Pitt big brush in cold grey
black 05 prismacolor fine line marker.

The music....

This is an old favorite.
This particular song used to be on repeat, a lot back in the day.
Brings back very good, chill memories.
