Worked hard today and got everything done well before tea -and that includes uploading, which is a bit slow at the moment.
Starting with Art Journal journey, which today is inspired by Monet.
This was one of those pages that just flowed really well!
And my stitched square for Art Every Day Month
This one has a fair bit of stitching, some painted scrim (cheesecloth), velvet and painted tyvek.
My daily drawing sketch.
This is a sketch of my perennial sweet pea, which is just starting to bud up.
And my warm ups
I really enjoyed working today and now it is time to get cooking for tea!

Happy creating!


  1. This is gorgeous, a lovely start to my day to view your blog! Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey again! Hugs, Valerie

  2. love Monet would so love to see his garden. Good to see the tyvek I have lots of pieces in a box wondering whether they will ever be used! they are painted and have been shrunk with the gun but that is as far as I got with them

  3. Wonderful Monet inspired spread..AWESOME Vicki..and all the other pieces are great as well!
    Thanks a lot .... I hope to see a lot of "Inspired by the Masters" pages from you .. that's your theme as it seems.
    Happy start of the week!

  4. You make me feel like such a slacker. Love the Monet inspired water lilies, but the sewn piece had my heart racing. Loved how you incorporated the tyvek.

  5. How much you work!! It is amazing!! Love everything you share in your post, especially the sweet pea drawing, how beautiful!!
