For my wonderful, lovely, smoochy blog friends!

You were all so amazingly loving and insightful last week re my selling my house.  I took each and every one of your advice and moved with it.

I am lighter, trust more in the process and have had a fantastic week.  You have been a saving grace.

Let my art of the week speak to "you!"

Bless "all" of you.  Deep Gratitude of the Running River to you!

Love and squishy hugs

I decided to make my own paper pattern.
I used a SU roller all throughout on Kraft paper and then used Mr. Huey Stencils and some Stencil Girl Stencils, all put on with India Ink and Make Up Sponges.
The letters/words are from "word art" purchased from Chapter's Indigo.
They are actually from my raunchy/sexy set.
You get the "tame" words.
hee hee!
Before I did anything, I sprayed and decorated with Dyan's Dylusions Mists.

Please click on pic in order to read the "sayings" unless you are unlike me and have microscopic eyes!
I used the same process for each page of art because I was having such a great time making my own paper art, spelling out how I was feeling and recovering from the stress I was feeling in choosing the right real estate agent for me.  I ended up choosing a "doozer" - just as zany and crazy as me - a perfect match!

And here, I thank "you" and I thank "G-d" for you and for the process I went through.  I travelled through the dark and came through seeing the beautiful, romantically insightful "LIGHT" only found through good relationships with my blog friends and with G-d and with myself.  Thank you my lovely friends. xox

I love you all.

  1. Beautiful! The pattern and color scheme in your piece are so peaceful. Thank you for your kind words about my posting. My father was a bishop in the Episcopal Church, so although I didn't follow in his footsteps, I do try to spread the Lord's word through my artwork and writings. Blessings!

  2. Hi Samara
    I still seem to have pretty good eyesight and a large laptop screen but needed to do enlargements.. you got me (LOL).
    Love that you used Kraft paper. I am in love with using Kraft card. Admiring your own pattern making and also all the word art could not speak to any of us any louder if it tried.
