Challenge # 182This week's challenge (here) was pretty simple: stripes. So, rather than go with straight stripes, I twirled them (OK... maybe just in my mind). I wanted to use tangles you wouldn't usually associate with a stripe, and I had fun, as usual.
More Stamp Fun
This week, I barely had time, but did have a couple of hours to relax last weekend. So, I played with a print I had already painted with watercolors, and outlined with ink (you can see it here). So I added a lot more pen work, a bit of shading with watercolors, and some colored pencil. I think that's it for this one:
So, I grabbed a pair of my son's old jeans, cut a piece, stamped it, and started working on it while watching TV with my husband. I have not gotten very far yet, I will post pictures next week.
New HouseThe closing on the sale of our condo and purchase of our new house was scheduled for yesterday. Unfortunately, the buyer of our condo could not secure a loan with the lender he had chosen, so it didn't happen. The good news is that it seems he will get it from another lender, and therefore it is just a matter of a couple of week's delay (WE HOPE!!!). So, this week it was all about getting some info to help with the lender, and undoing everything we had already set up for the move. So... not much time for anything else.
Last weekend, though I wanted to check out the reservation 1 block from our new house. I loved it! We only spent an hour walking and hiking, but we loved what we saw; a really beautiful place. Here are a couple of pictures I took with my phone, not great pictures but I think you will be able to see what I mean.
I'm feeling so lucky to have such beauty and inspiration so close to my new home! Let's hope it all works out soon :)
