I'm a baseball fan.
That's pretty much it. I love everything about baseball, and aside from hockey and Wimbledon, I pretty much use sports to provide background noise while I nap.
Not that I don't like them, but I don't love them like I love a good rooftop in Chicago when the tulips are blooming.
But today, I make an exception.
First, last night, my beloved Libby had a little creative block. Her Twitter family suggested wine and a stamping magazine, and LOOK WHAT SHE DID!! Ask, and ye shall receive. (PS - you should go through the whole blog hop she's a part of - there's some great blog candy, and some amazing artwork.)
Today, I was in her shoes. Sweet, sweet Jayne told me she missed me today, which warmed my heart, since I haven't posted in a few days. But I needed some inspiration. I asked, and I got it.
The suggestion was "Maillot jaune" - or Yellow Jersey, in French. For you Austinites who need some trivia, that's why Lance Armstrong's bike shop is called Mellow Johnny's, which I was lucky enough to find out today.
And so begins the inspiration. The yellow is so iconic, and I cannot resist an iconic color.
So I combined my waking card dream from the other day with my fortunate inspiration from my friend today and I got this.I drew a thick black border with my marker and then masked it off with post its. Then I brayered Summer Sun and a little Pumpkin Pie before stamping circle circus in black. I repeated this on a Stampin' Up! envelope, and voila - friend + me = art.
Love it when that happens.
Thank you. :) I'm very grateful.
Oh yeah, and happy....
