Today’s Envelope Art is before the stamp and address. I didn’t want to spoil the picture with those.

I got a masking pen for my birthday and have been playing with it. Lots of fun! First you draw the shape of whatever you don’t want paint to stick to. Then after it dries you can paint over the top of it. Then peel it off. It is rubbery and strechy at that point.

Capturing the Photographic Moment

I was on my way to the airport in the early morning to pick up my son. He lives so very far away and I was so excited! I was focused and committed to getting there in time and hugging him.

However, along my route, I passed this lovely morning scene. I told myself I must not miss the opportunity to capture such beauty. So many times I have driven on by because it was inconvenient to stop or I was just wanting to get to my destination.

I am so glad I backed up for this one. And I also made it to the airport in time.

Feel the Gentle Breeze

Today’s Envelope Art:IMG_2330.jpg

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

(The poem is taken from the much-loved hymn, How Great Thou Art.

Today’s envelope art…Cattails.jpg

My grandmother learned many adorable poems and songs when she was in school. She sang them to my mother during Mom’s growing up years. Lately, Mom has been singing snippets of them. Yesterday, she quoted the above poem about the cattails and I knew I wanted to put that on an envelope. I can’t say the artwork is my own this time . I had quite a bit of help from a piece of clipart.

Enjoy nature.
