Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up - Including Elton!

This past week has been an exceptional week for first rate entertainment! Thursday we went to see a musical comedy "25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee" put on by a local theatre company. It was so funny - we both loved it.

Then on Saturday night I finally got to see Elton John in concert!
He brought his Rocket Man tour to Hamilton - a 45 minute drive for us.

What a musician! What an artist! He played almost non-stop for almost 3 hours! Song after song, he played and sang. What a fantastic show!

Then this afternoon, we went to Stratford to watch Shakespeare's "The Tempest". Christopher Plummer played Prospero and again, what a great artist! He's 80 years old and has such stamina and great memory! He dominates the stage when he is on (which was most of the time!)

After the performance he signed his book - which of course I bought and he signed!

I did get some art done this week as well. My hubby was on holidays so had to fit creating in when I could.

I took part in GPP #42 and had fun with the strip-ease collage. Couldn't stop making collages. I'll use them different projects (see here).

I also continued on with my July collage-a-day challenge.

July 8 (Spelling Bee)

July 9 (to represent "strip Ease" for GPP)

July 10 (ELTON!)

July 11 (for "The Tempest")

I have also been working on a number of ATCs as I have many swaps due this month.
(More later in the week)

Have a wonderful week!

I want to make sure that as much as possible that everyone else in the group is aware of when you post something for our group so that you will receive visits. We now have 99 participants. That is so great! Because we are so large, it is not possible to visit each and every post that every member puts up; so when you post something related to The Artistic Mother's Art group, I would suggest that you start your title off with "Artistic Mother" to maximize your chances of others from the group paying you a visit. I look at the blog roll for our group every day; and when I see those words, I automatically know that this is a post that I don't want to miss. Please continue to check the blog roll on my blog for Artistic Mother Group related posts on a regular basis so that we can continue to encourage one another in our efforts to do a little something creative each day. Only five show at a time. Just click "Show All" to see all of the blogs.

Elton John is amazing and I'm so glad you got to see him. The first time I saw him, decades ago, he came out on stage wearing nothing but light bulbs. Don't know how it was done but he truly is a fantastic entertainer.

Sounds like a fun week. I love Christopher Plummer, he is such good actor. What a great way to start your holidays.

You are definitely diving into your summer vacation full throttle!
Sounds like a great time and even with all that fun you squeezed some great ATC work in!

Okay, so has someone started a reference site listing all of these amazing techniques? Strip-Ease? I learn something new every day!
