Wednesday Already???

Wow!!!
I have to tell you all...this gal has been schooled...in a great way though!!!
I had the pleasure of having 5...yes, 5 special artists in my latest Jerrys class...and collectively, they were a force to be reckoned with!!
Holy Moly they were a force!!!
Three full days of artistic explorations!!
Ok...had to snag these from someone elses phone because as you may imagine...there was literally no time for me to grab my camera...schooled, I say!!
Rough work, but so much fun!!!
I have been crazy with classes, demos, and preparing for more classes!!  Maybe my muse just hasnt had time to catch up with me!!
Straight into a teacher playtime at Jerrys...
Then a class with Joe at Jerrys...amazing!!
Not sure of how rhis came to be, but it was fun!!!  32x40 mixed media on paper!!
Well...that is my past week in review!!!  Gearing up to do it all over again next week!!!
I hope you all have had a magical creative week so far...lets make it happen...ok..
Until next time,
Ophelia

Finally Friday!!

I have to admit...this week has been rough!  For some reason, I just can't get back into my groove.  It seems no matter what I do, I am just plain tired!!  I've tried kicking up the vitamins, drinking more water, going for walks...and of course, naps...but nothing seems to help me shake it...I guess as with my cleaning...its time to call in a professional!!
I wanted to share a few more pics that I captured while we were away...  First, my son had a blast!!!
These guys were just amazing...talk about friendships made to last a lifetime...
The team is so spread out that these kids don't get to see each other often...but they totally made up for it while away!!
Coming off of an injury, I was so happy that my kiddo played so well...a fracture in hos growth plate left him on the sidelines for 6 weeks...that was hard because he was not allowed to run, play, anything!!!  He was happy because at least it got him out of chores!!!
A lot of pool time when they weren't playing...
Frozen beverage sharing...
The whole experience was great!!!
Now...on to some art...
I am taking Mindy Lacefields Paint Your Story class...and I love it!!!
Gotta tell you though...faces are a bit tough for me right now and requires lots of that nasty "P" word...practice!!!
Welp...long, picture heavy post today...  I appreciAte you sticking around though... We are done with baseball until September, thank goodness!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

Loving Summer of Color!!!

Happy Monday everyone!!!
I am truly loving every single minute of Summer of Color!!  This weeks color combination was Sage and Sepia...  Read about it here:  http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/
I had a blast doing this page and using these colors together...just so rich, and such an old feel!  Loved every single minute of it!!
So, here is my page...

My journal is getting so thick it seems quite hard to scan well, but here it is!  Having these challenges have been such a treat because my muse seems to be else where!!  I have no idea what is going on with me, but, I am just DRY!  Now that I am on summer vacation, I have all of the time in the world to create, and well, NOTHING!!  So, if you have seen my muse out there...romping around having a great time...will you please ask her to come home....she is desparately needed!!
So, hope that you all are enjoying your Monday.  We just returned from Tennessee...late last night.  Big new though...



We won the whole thing!!!  World Series Champions!!  Talk about an amazing experience!  This is something my son will never ever forget!
 
I have tons of pictures to share...so that will have to be a totally different post.  I told my husband as we were leaving that I could totally get into the baseball mom thing....then, I remembered the 100 degree heat they usually play in, and well, I'm over it now...
Until next time,
Ophelia

Summer of Color.....and, Its Not too Late!!!

You all may remember a few weeks back, I posted that my son and his baseball team would be traveling to Kingsport, TN to play....welp, its almost time, and it is not too late for you to help me get him there!!  I still have collage packs available...

So, here is my son, Stephen (a pic from his 8th Grade Formal.
His team, the Carolina Titans.
So...we have been working like crazy to help him raise the money to go.  The coach gave each player a goal to raise the money that it would cost to go so that parents would not have to fork over the entire amount for them to play in TN for the week.  I thought that I would help him out by selling my collage packs to help his reach his goal.
So....
Ledger pages, pockets, tickets, foreign text...all sorts of stuff!!
Each pack is truly different...with all sorts of stuff inside!!!
So...if you would like to help us get this journey done....there is a paypal button on the right!!!  The cost is $25 for US...which includes shipping...International shipping is a bit more, but, your help really means a lot as this trip is such a great opportunity for him!!
Now, on to some Color!!
 
I just love a challenge....love, love, love!!!
Both are truly works in progress....seems my mojo is on vacation, and my muse is there relaxing with it.  I just can't get focused....or, I guess nothing is turning our right, so, I will leave these as they are for now until something hits me...
I truly hope each of you enjoys your day.
Until next time,
Ophelia

Summer of Color...

Good Morning Everyone!! Hope your day is off to a great start!! I have seen these pages all over blogland, and for the longest time, I have wanted to join in on the fun!! Kristin over at Twinkle, Twinkle has some amazing color combinations, and this time, I finally have been able to join in on the fun!!
The color combination for this week was Pale Pink and Charcoal Grey....Imagine me having those colors....I LOVE this combination!!  So, here is my WIP.....I will journal a bit more, but didn't want the week to get away from me to get it blogged.
I will do these prompts in a new journal..

I took this journal with me while I was away, and with the summer of color challenges in the back of my mind, I did this little bit....oh, this is going to be so much fun!!!
Well, lots and lots to do today....starting with the A/C repair guy!!  What a way to return from a getaway, right!!
I hope you have a magical day,
 
Until next time,
Ophelia
