Painting away!

So, last week was fun. In midst of waiting for my nephew to graduate Marine Corps bootcamp ,a crazy week at work and life in general.....I managed to paint a few paintings on my craft room floor. (thank goodness it was actually clean) I had no idea what I was going to paint,but I had been wanting to paint some crosses. I just pulled out my paint bucket, all my brushes and got to work. It is amazing how mind soothing it is to just sit and paint.No rules,no mistakes because I am a firm believer that there are no mistakes in art and if there were would I really care? no, not really. Here they are in order (hopefully as I am newbie to Google+)

my paintings.....

Oh Mojo Monday......#256

I didn't miss the deadline this time and I was actually able to do another card! That made my night. Being that I am a night owl and get little sleep, it was the perfect night to play in my room. I used Core'dinations blk/lime green paper, embossed it with the vintage wallpaper folder from SU, cut my 2 vertical strips and added a 3D hanging sign die from Sizzix and layered it in brown polka dot Bazzill paper. I then added a prima flower w/ glitter , punched a flower with the Boho Blossom punch from SU, inked the edges and popped a pearl on it. The vintage ribbon came from The Ribbon Retreat. I loveeee that stuff!

Hope you enjoy looking at my little card and join in on the fun. I love challenges and I always go to MOJO Monday for inspiration!

and here is my creation ....
