Wonderful Wednesday - Dream Deck - Art Day

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  A little over a week ago, I was at Britt's house for an Art Day.  We started off with a game of 52 Pick-up.  Well, that's not technically correct, but we took turns choosing cards from the colorful stacks you see on the table below:

We were working on #deckofdreams50 offered by @colorcrushcreative, each in our own way.  Britt went crazy with her gelli plate!  She created cards for herself and was having so much fun that she created a set for me, as well:

I was excited to start on my part of the project...

While Britt worked on finishing some of her cards:


I remembered my mission for the day was finding a way to complete the inside front cover of my Board Book Journal:

Fortunately, a piece of underpaper from Britt's gelli printing adventure was just right for the job:

I'm particularly excited by the fact that I can still (somewhat) read the title page of this special book, a favorite of the Junior Quilter when she was younger:

With that done, all that remained was cutting and taping (not shown) the spine and...

Doing the front and back covers.  I wasn't ready to commit to that task, but am auditioning my "Paint in the Dark" creation for that:

Then, I moved on to accomplished the following:

Adding a layer or two on the following cards...

Stamps and stencils:

Paper and paint:

Sometimes just a dab or scrap:

Boy, was that fun, though!!

Thank you, again, for going crazy with your gel plate, Britt!  I was thrilled to be the recipient of your abundance and a few days later, I had some fun with my new Mini Corner Rounder.  Now all of the corners are nicely rounded and ready for further embellishment:

Next up...

I'll be adding another layer to each of the cards in the stack shown above, as time, energy, and creativity allow.  For me, it's all about experimenting with my supplies and working on a project until the enthusiasm wanes.  You know?  When the next interesting class comes along.  :o))

Until next time...
So ART-fully dreamy!!!


  1. I sure do know what you mean! Looks like all that is best about experimenting!

  2. I love the pic of Britt surrounded by paints and supplies! What fun you two have together....that's so lucky to find a co-creator!

  3. Love it! It was SUCH a fun day! Thanks for coming for a collage play date and documenting the good time. When's the next one?? :)
