Does Coffee make cents to you? LOL! Are you one of the people that love the scent of coffee but don’t drink it? I LOVE COFFEE! Start every day with it! Nothing better than a starbucks date! SMILE!

    Great idea to use the technique for painting your title!!

    Thanks for playing along at The Next Step this month! You are our first entry!!


  3. Cool! I know I asked you before… do you give these canvases away, or sell them? Or do you keep them for inspiration? I really, really like looking at your collage work… it’s funtastic… still… I’m not sold if it’s my thing to create and piece things… but love looking at what you create!

  4. I sure wish we lived close enough to one another so you could give me art lessons! I just love all of your collage work and would love to be able to create one myself!

  5. I just found you, I bookmarked you to check out all your art. Love what I see here. Also, I didn’t know about the challenge website, I will check that out too.

  6. Gorgeous work! I love the smell of coffee and even coffee flavored ice cream, but I don’t drink it. Silly I guess. The art journal is amazing and I love those family photos. Frame worthy. Best of luck on your new adventure. I just know it will be good whatever you choose.

  7. I haven’t been to your blog in a while but I am so glad to find it again…really love the way you did this challenge. Your blog is on my desktop now!

  8. Smarten up gf!! Stop showing me up–LOL. Don’t I sound like a broken record?! LOL. Awesome piece. Your layering is so good. I hope I can get good one day. Guess you’ll be buying lots of blue for Julie’s projects, eh?! Glad to see you’re getting so much enjoyment out of challenges.
