PPF - The After Party

Well, this is it... Paint Party Friday, The After Party! No cleaning up needed... just kick off your shoes, get a last drink and snack, and let's chat. Tell us a few things in the comments before you go... If you haven't already, please share your Instagram account(s) (if you use it and want us to follow you). If you host or participate in other art link-ups that you think others here would enjoy, please include those for others in the comments as well! Actually... what the heck - let's do another Mr. Linky this week - for two things. First please link any of your own artwork you'd like to share. And any other art link-ups that you'd like to point out (maybe for "Name" on these ones, put something like "Idea from "____" (you)" and throw the links into Mr. Linky as well. 

Fridays are going to feel very odd to us going forward... (Or at least Thursdays as we prepped for the party!) 

Thank you for all your lovely comments here in our comment section and on your own blogs! Here are last week's images - at least one piece from everyone!
