Café Olé or Café au lait?

Hello Everyone!

The other night my husband went to see his sister, (his Friday night ritual), and came home with a coffee maker. She was replacing it with a new one, even though this one is still in excellent and working condition;
but not being one for looking a gift horse in the mouth, I was excited to try it.
Now isn't that pretty :D And if you'd like to pop round I will be happy to make one for you too. 
I'm delighted to be sharing this with the lovely ladies over at Elizabeth's for Tea on Tuesday
Even though I haven't participated for a few weeks I have popped in and out when I could. 
Now craft wise, I have been having some more fun being, 'inspired by'......
Number 7

Mondrian meets Modigliani.

Inspired by Kandinsky.

Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch.

Many thanks for your visit, I truly appreciate it.
Until next time, do take care,
and be happy.

The Craft Barn

Calendar Challenge - August

Hello everyone

Today I am here to share my calendar page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge
We are, as you know, in August, (already!) and the words for this month are Pink & Butterflies.

Again I managed to make good use of my gelatos. I smooshed my  Bubble Gum and Guava gelatos onto a sheet of watercolour paper with a baby wipe. Once dry, I used a butterfly punch and glued them onto the calendar page. Using my silver pen I stencilled the month, wrote my quote and added some pink washi tape.

I would also like to share some more of my Picasso inspired art pieces. 
and another Modigliani inspired picture
I'm having so much fun creating these; I hope you enjoy seeing them, (I have more on the boil lol).

Thank you so much for visiting.
Until next time,
be well and be happy {{Hugs}} Mo :o) x

Something a Little Different

Hi Everyone

I know it's been a few days, (nearly two weeks), since there was any action from this little port in blogland, but I haven't been idle. Well not completely, haha.

My friend Boo shared this link with me. It is for 'Free! Kids Online Art Classes' that are hosted and taught by, Carla Sonheim, Lynn Whipple and Diane Culhane. 
I had hoped Wee Man would join in, but I think he's about arted out for a wee while after successfully completing his 61 ICADs. However, I signed up anyway, watched the videos and picked the ones I wanted most to try, and here are the results. 

Picasso inspired Dog  (watercolours)

Oil Pastel & Paint People

Modigliani inspired Portrait 1 (watercolour pencils)

Modigliani inspired Portrait 2 (watercolour pencils)

These were all a lot of fun to do, and I see myself doing more.
Many thanks for visiting and looking.

Take Care, Be Happy
{{Hugs}} Mo :o)) x
