Artsy Insta Friday

Even when I can't write a full blog post (where does my time go?), it is always fun to capture little bits of creativity with Instagram. Are you on Instagram? (If you are, let me know in the comments so I can come find you!) Not only do I love sharing what I am up to, but I LOVE seeing all the artsy goodness from the wonderful people I follow. So much loveliness - crafters, scrapbookers, artists, Project Lifers, home bloggers, mommies, and friends. It is a super fun and shall I say a wee bit addicting. :) I guess there are things more terrible than Instagram to be addicted to! Here are a few "artsy Instas" from my world lately ...

Playing with the idea of feathers and little whimsy characters. She says, "being brave is not always easy."
Portrait on a wood block. Inspired by yellow and gray. Post coming soon.

LOVING my new Faber-Castell Gelatos. I only have 4 colors and want more!

Working on a journal page

Creating little goodies at a Stampin' Up! party.  SO fun!

A bright journal page WIP

I had to throw this one in of my dog. We joke that she is a chihuahua trapped in a Golden Retriever's body. She does not realize how big she is! She wants to be a lap dog. :)

I hope you have a wonderful, love filled weekend!

  1. These are wonderful! I love the whimsy too and the colors are just great.

  2. Love your creations -- cute and colorful! Visiting from Sneak Peek... :)

  3. Lots of arty goodness here to look at. Loving your whimsy girls. Annette x Happy PPF

  4. I LOVE your work, especially that yellow and gray portrait- gorgeous!
    Happy PPF,

  5. Looks like a whole lot of fun was had here!!! Keep at it! Enjoy! HPPF!

  6. YEsssss, SO addicting - and I'm finding that I'm blogging less - perhaps because of Instagram? I dunno. LOVING these picts, love the "hard to be brave" sentiment and piece and um, can we talk about that yellow and gray wood block?! LOVE, xo!

  7. Cool journaling and wood block girl, love your stuff! I like Instagramming, too. :)

  8. Wonderful work! I especially love that bright journalpage. And your dog of course ... ☺

  9. These are awesome!! Not on instagram but I love it...I go onto webstagram online to see them but I can partake because I have an old phone. Want an android...considering it very soon!! When I get one I will be sure to add you!! Love all your artwork!!

    Hugs Giggles

  10. Love your whimsy girls, I'm a huge fan of this style and yours are fab! HPPF!

  11. Lots of great creativity in this post! Really like the yellow and great one.

    P.S. BTW Did you know you still have word verification/captcha on? It makes it very hard to comment...

  12. I really like your version of yellow and grey--usually I don't because the grey is too dark and the yellow ends up having a weird greenish cast. Your Golden looks just like mine, Sergio. The Old Boy is getting on in years and having more and more back leg problems but he's just so sweet and loving.

    I <3 your work.
