Art Journal Page, Handmade Card and A Website Headache!
Hello to all my Paint Party Friday Friends! I hope you've been having a good week. I completed this art journal page last week using watercolors, watercolor pencils, collage (some from Teesha Moore collage sheets) and penwork. I was just using leftovers from my collage folder - that was the challenge. Obviously influenced by Teesha. ;) Fun to do but my lettering needs work.
I did paint this accordion fold card for my Mom's birthday. (Happy Birthday Mom!) Acrylic and collage with colored pencil and pen on watercolor paper. This is the card opened. There is a tag in a pocket and a little sheer fabric bag holding a gift card. I somehow I forgot to take a picture of the card closed - it has ribbon ties that wrap around to secure it.
I have spent most of my free time the last two to three weeks focusing on trying to set up a blog/website on Squarespace. It's a lovely platform but I have been having difficulty coming up with anything I like! ARRGH! So time consuming trying to learn a new platform and I kind of feel like I am just reinventing this site. I love Blogger but find myself wanting some features I can't get here. But after all this time working on a site with nothing finalized I am feeling tired and frustrated. I can't seem to get exactly what I want there either. Now I'm not sure if Squarespace is the right place for me.
So I am looking forward to surfing around and seeing what all of you are up to. :)
Have you considered moving your blog or creating a website? How was that for you?
Here's hoping you have a relaxing and creative weekend!
