Paint Party Friday, food for my creative soul

A couple of years ago I found Paint Party Friday
When I wasnt participating, I was lurking.
Since I have been working full time I really haven't had much time for my creative side.
Last Friday I was lurking again and found "Rosie in New Zealand's" entry.
You all know I am the "queen" of yupo backgrounds.
They rest all over the house awaiting inspiration.
Well, this past Friday, Rosie was my inspiration.
You can also see her on Facebook at Rosie Kaplan Art.
Thanks Rosie!

I carefully cut my water color paper and started weaving strips of a discarded background.

And here is the result.  

Another background that is a work in progress.
This won't be posted at Paint Party Friday this week because we are off on a much anticipated trip to Montreal and Quebec City.
If you have any "must see" suggestions, please post them.  We don't want to miss anything.

P.S.  We are back from a wonderful time in Quebec.  It was foreign enough to be interesting and familiar enough to be comfortable.  Perfect!  And I never got this posted.
