Both of these photos are from Monday. Good day. Inspirational views.
Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset,
Swiftly flow the days,
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as they gaze…
Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset!
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears…
Fiddler on the Roof
Recently worked on postcards for friends. Sending my brand of sunshine, and prayers for quick and pain-free recovery. Made mini bookmarks too. With a positive affirmation. A little prayer my Mom has always said. I don’t know where it comes from to be honest.
I am surrounded by the white light of love & protection,
and the blue light of health & healing.
I painted them on my new/old paint boards that my friend Mark cut for me. I saved the back of my Arches watercolor block. It was a large one, so he was able to get four 6 x 6 and three 4 x 4 pieces. Thank you Mark!
I have to credit Sandy Sandy with the idea. One of the cool tips she gave us in her FUNdamentals of Alcohol Ink E-Course. Thank you Sandy! I always save the back of pads of paper, so much you can use them for. But the Arches is so thick, I wasn’t able to cut it myself.
I will finish sanding the edges to smooth them. Mostly because I am a neat freak, but also to prevent paper cuts. My collection of paint boards now includes a 12 x 12 balsa wood, a 10 x 10 balsa wood, and these. And I recycled to boot! Wooo Whooo!
I thought about laminating one side of the board. I would be able to wipe off any spillage. But I think having the absorbent paper will work better.
Hope your Valentines day was memorable! Want a unique idea for next year? The town I grew up in has a long-standing tradition, Loveland Colorado. Their Valentine re-mailing program makes for a fun surprise.
