Hi, Betty back this week to bring you our prompt for the coming week. 

Do you ever get a song stuck in your head?  Well, ever since we decided to do this particular prompt, each time I would start thinking about it, I got that "Tea for Two, and Two for Tea" song stuck.   Over and over and over.  And it's still playing.  Please...... someone make a catchy little tune about COFFEE...just for me, puh-leez!!!!!

We were all enthused about this prompt.  It can go so many different ways, and as usual, we all took different approaches this week.

SHANA apparently was feeling a little spunky this week with her journal spread. Here's what she had to say...

I was feeling sassy and wanted to play with watercolors with this weeks post, I did a google search for inspiration using the words "tea time" and saw a card with the phrase on my page. It made me giggle so I started playing and with it working on one of my many nemesis, hands! I decided to go against sketching and just laid down the color in the general shape of the hand, I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out! I continued by adding the sassy pants girls face with more watercolor and wrote the phrase. The tea cup is cut from an envelope I received from a Artful Mail groupies swap! I hope you enjoy my sassy pants journal entry and it gave you a giggle! ~~Big hugs and mushy stuff! - Shana

MELODY is full of bright colors again this week and put her creative talents to making me WANT to try some tea......  Better go check it out, and be sure and leave her some blog love while you're there.... HERE


LYNN has hit yet another home run this week!  Here's what she had to say about it!  "I really enjoyed doing this prompt. I mixed painting with stencils and die cuts. The base of the spread is used with my new paper soft paint that I won in a contest in soft orange. And ladies, I have to say if you don't know this paint you have to try it. Made by Viva. Then I cut out the tea cups from the Tim Holtz line and with my Cricut, cut out my "time for tea" letters. The lady having the tea is from a old calendar. Finally, I used a circle stencil and added them all over the page. I hope you enjoy this spread and make sure you go look what the other girls did this week. Thanks for looking."

BETTY - Okay, so I am a coffee-aholic, and tea really isn't my "thang" -- but I did manage to try a new technique I had been wanting to experiment with, and had a lot of fun doing it.  You can see the full spread HERE


We hope that in some small way that we have inspired you to create something fun in your journal, experiment and think outside the box or just get down and dirty with it and create with wild abandon. No matter how you proceed, you're keeping it artful...just how we like!

Have a fantastic week!

~~Betty, Melody, Lynn and Shana
