Artist's Play Room #40 ~ A Weather Eye


NOT to BE a stinker, but Delray Beach, Florida, where I have happily resided since August of 2009, is superb in January. 

I might even call this "Perfect" weather. In fact, given Today and the past few, it surely IS perfection!!

While we DO have days that are very cold, sometimes, and others that seem almost overly warm, most days are like this: enough sunshine, breeziness, and warmth to just slap a big silly grin on my face for days and days on end...

This little treasure I've made started out as Word Art. I am finding I love making words of art and art of words. Sort of like having my cake and eating it, too.

Added in using Photoshop Elements 8 were 4 different textures from Kim Klassen, blended each in its own peculious fashion, and then saved.

Next stop, a side trip to Pixlr Express where I tried a little this and added a little that and most of all, added in this photo from a Day at the Beach in 2010. Very much all an Ah-Hah sort of deLIGHT.

I sort of knew I was going to DO this week's APR with Word Art, but until I got into it I really had no idea where the "P" [for PLAY] would take me.

I'm pretty sure that's the really FUN piece of Artist's Play Room and Jenn's little nudges, seeing where it takes me...

Wonderful art Currie. You chose a very beautiful script too. I have no idea what I'm going to do yet :( But I'm sure something will occur before it's too late :0) Mo

I like your layering and the way you've been making your lettering clipped to your artwork - very creative. And your PAF entry is so pretty - nice work!

What a 'fantabulous' work of art Currie,
I loved the colours but then I never noticed the imagine in the background initially...but when I did it was a delight.
You sound like you're having similar weather to us...just perfect days right now.

Just to let you know I didn't enter the playroom this week because I'm involved in a blog hop party but if you nip over to me before the end of January and leave a comment, then I can add you into the giveaway draw.
Have a wonderful week enjoying that weather ;D

Neesie ♥
