In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her. You are welcome to take the button on the right to display on your own blog and we hope you will visit the blogs of the people she has been staying with and leave a kind comment after your reading.

Tea in America?

FS and Heartland 020

Here is Flat Susan giving water color painting a try, if you came by for my last post it is the same picture from the adventures of FS.  You can see it HERE if interested.
Over the weekend we were in Temecula for an RV trip, which was also posted yesterday.  Since I am an early riser I always take some crafty thing to work on while all is still quiet.  This trip I cut some water color paper into ATC size, post card size, and card front size.  With a permanent marker sketched different things, very loosely, then painted them with water color paint.
Here are some ATCs I did for today.

Tea Cup ATCs 001 

TEA CUPS!  Different stages and different designs, all hand sketched and hand painted. There are still a few touch ups to be done and some lettering, or stamping.   As I said above they are all loosely sketched and NOT perfect, but VERY fun to make.
I got the idea from a Strathmore video.  It is one of the on-line classes, for cards. You have to sign up for (cost nothing)  then you can view all the videos.  They will stay until December 31, so there is still time to see them. I enjoyed Joanne Sharpe’s the most.  I did do some post cards and card front, but will save those for a different post.


  1. I finally have had a chance to catch up on FS's many adventures over the last few weeks. My goodness, but what fun is she having! I love all the photos the hostesses are including and I'm learning a lot. For instance, in this lovely post by Krisha, I loved seeing the pistachio trees, which I've never seen before! Great job to all the hostesses!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Gosh, she is learning so much whilst on her travels. I will have to watch my watercolours when she gets home.


Thank you for reading about my adventures, hope you come back and read more. I am always on the move.
