Challenge Quotable

Dear Blogger,

Simon Says Stamp has this week a challege about a lines from a favorite movie ... a sentiment on a stamp you keep meaning to use more or an inspirational quote to something a family member is always saying.

Well this has been verfy easy for me to find...
I do love Jane Austen, well she is a writer but most of her work has been picturized.
My absolute favorite Movie is the classic novel  "Pride and Prejudice" produced 1995 by BBC with the marvelous Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and a fabolous Jennifer Ehle as Elisabeth Bennet.

"not one heardbeat do I forget" is actually a line from the movie "Lost in Austen" which is a well done parody on the Original just above mention 1995 BBC Production. So I mixed them together and her is my ATC I submitted for this challenge:

Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth)

Elisabeth Bennet (Jennifer Ehle)

Thank you soooo much for watching my Blog!

In memory of Jackson Pollock

Dear Blogger,

Watching every day your Blogs and seeing that amazing piece of Art -  HEY YOU are so talented!
You are such outstanding Artist! WOW!  I just love Blogland :-)

You may wonder what then the Title has to do with YOU? Well I will explaine:
Jackson Pollock is the inventor of "Action Painting". He was an influential American painter (1912-1956) and a major figure in the abstract expressionism. The technique seems to be simple if you see it the first time. But it is really difficult to get the result you may like.
In the time Pollock has presented his Art (in the late 1940s), he was unique, maybe not always well understood (some may thought - every Kid could do "Action Painting") but in the end he became famous and his Paiting and his Art is still the most expensive Paiting  in USA.

Go your way and try things out.. try this..."Action Painting" is such a lot of fun!
I really like encourage you today! Have Fun!

my first try "action paiting" by SanDee1899 :-)

Thank you for watching my blog!
I really looking forward to see you pieces of art!
Yours SanDee

A children´s book for rainy days -

Dear Blogger,

today you get something real special!

March can often be a very wet month here where I live in Germany, rain pouring down regularly and so I thought -  how can  I keep the moods of my son up and persuade him to have a long walk in the rain well, ....maybe If I read him an amazing, adventure story (about walking in the rain) ??? ....Will this work -  so I have started to create my own Childrens (for my Son) book - so here is the first page...  (and by the way - it did work - so far *lol)

...and guess what? It also fits into the current SSSS Challenge about "Water" - which I have submitted  this piece of art.

The children´s book for rainy days is not finished yet ... but will be continued... and If you like I will share with YOU.

Thank you so much for watching my blog.
Cant wait to hear/read what you think!
