Bubble Girls & Dolores Del Rio

Thursday is here! I spent the last two days on jury duty but I am free today. I always find jury duty to be such an interesting experience. Seems like everytime I am called I make it up to a court room. What I really got so tired of was hearing people's BS about what a hardship jury duty would be for them. People will say anything to get out of their civic duty! Just amazing!
I am posting the bubble girls this morning which is a PSE conconction.... as we hit up around 90 yesterday in the valleys. It was a beach day! The 2nd pic is another PSE creation from a mural in Hollywood. The mural was done in 1990 by Alfredo de Batuc. Dolores Del Rio was a latina film actress. She was a star of Hollywood films during the silent era and in the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Wishing you all a great Thursday!

The Tulips in Mt. Vernon, Washington

Good Saturday morning everyone! I am finally getting around to posting again! I returned from a short trip to Washington State last week & it was a great time! We managed to get over to see the tulips this time in Mt. Vernon. It was VERY cold that day! Fortunately, we didn't have to walk through the muddy tulips as we were fortunate enough to catch a ride. It was so nice seeing all the gorgeous colors & some very cool kites too! I hope you enjoy the pictures & that you all have a great weekend!

Eating grapes & serious sisters

Hello everyone! Friday really crept up quick & the weekend is upon us. I hope you all have some fun plans for this weekend. My sister-in-law is visiting from Washington state so we are gathering for a BBQ tomorrow. That should be a lot of fun.
This morning I have a couple of PSE creations done with some free images from some generous bloggers.
I have tweaked & re-tweaked these images..particularly the top one. I combined 2 pics together & then overlayed that on another. The sisters are a bit boring but I guess every piece can't be bright & popping with color. The background on the sisters was a free Flickr background.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Another New Paintover

Good morning! As you can see, I am enjoying the paintovers that I learned through Lisa Bebi & the book
titled,  Art at the speed of life. If you don't have this book by Pam Carriker, do yourself a favor & pick one up. It is fabulous! This is my 3rd paintover & I do believe I am improving a bit each time. I also included the original pic in this post. I have no idea who this lovely little girl is but she has one heavenly little face!
The process again is a black & white photocopied picture...I print on cardstock as it's heavier.
You are simply painting over that picture. It's really a fairly easy process. I use ALL Golden products.
The book referenced above goes step by step & there's only 5 or 6 steps. 
Happy Saturday!
