Mixed Media Art

This is my latest mixed media piece, I named it "P is for Party". It was fun to play with the paints and other media to create this collage/mixed media piece.

I want to say thanks to all the brave alligator hunters. We have not turned up the pattern I need yet. But, keep looking and remember me if you find an alligator.

This weekend we had to go up to San Antonio again to take Cody his truck as he is now allowed to have it. He does not have off base privileges yet but that base is so huge, it will be nice for him to get around in his truck instead of walking everywhere. Cody's fiance went with us. Can you believe this is the only picture I took? I was definitely not on my game. I enjoyed seeing him so much. We did not get to take him off base but we entertained ourselves by shopping on base, eating etc. We stayed at the hotel on the base and it was very nice and the price was so much better than when we stayed off base several weeks ago for his graduation. We will definitely take advantage of that again. Well, it is Wednesday (hump day).....we can make it....Have a great rest of the week. Hugs!

Let's Paarrtay ! Such a cute piece, my Queen !Love the purple...

Glad you had a nice visit with your son. I so get the not taking pictures thing. Sometimes it is nice to just really be there in moment and not worry about recording it all !
I am feeling similarly about just getting over the hump this week. See you on the other side !

Hey girl....I've been away for a while, but I'm back and I'm trying to read up on my emails and check out all of my favorite blogs. You've been busy. I hope your summer is going great.

I love your new P is for Party piece! Such fun and funky colors...and sparkly. Love the photo also. It's hard to remember that camera when you're having such fun.
