From Art Journal to Canvas #2

Hi Everyone!
 
Due to a back injury, I haven't been able to create very much art until the last few weeks. I haven't been able to sit on my art room chair long enough to complete anything. My back issues have been around since I was little. This time I've been struggling since July 15th; physical therapy, medications, etc. and I'm finally starting to feel human. I've tried to paint or play in my art journal while I'm partially laying down, but pain has a way of stopping all creativity.
 
So for now, I'll be sharing with you what I've been up to but there will be no step by step processes. 
 
First, my art journal spread was using leftover TCW Gel Medium from my craft sheet and the new Daisy Chain stencil. I finished it off with paint in blues and purples and TCW Gold Gesso.
 
I decided to try to duplicate it on a canvas.
This took a few days. I couldn't sit very long at times when I had physical therapy.
 
It was created the same way as the journal spread but I used the new Infinite Lace stencil and TCW Modeling Paste
 
 

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them
 
That's it for now.
 
Although I haven't been around here on the my blog, I have posted a few creations on my Instagram account (@karenlizhenderson).
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

DecoArt Under The Sea Challange.

This was so much fun to create and so far outside my comfort zone.

I would have never been able to finish this if it wasn't for a great teacher, Jackie P. Neal. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Art Journal Cover with Sweet Posey Stencil

Hi Everyone!
I have a lower back issue so I haven't been able to sit in my art room for any length of time yet. Hopefully soon.

Today I thought I would share with you an art journal cover I created for The Crafter's Workshop.

The stencil I used is called Sweet Posey and you can buy it from Scrapbook.com.



Very simple cover but I love the way it came out.


 
 
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Oh Crap, She's Up!

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to share a canvas panel I created with a new stamp from Yvonne Blair Designs for Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps.
 
Sorry to say I don't have any step out pictures. I was in the zone and it just happened. I think many of my favorite pieces are made that way.
 
I can tell you I used the ColourArt Silks Acrylic Glazes on this piece. The vintage image was a gift from my art sister +Jackie P Neal.  I added little gold beads to her gown while it was still wet and pressed them in a little. So far they've stayed on.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Be Weird, Be Random: An Art Journal Page

Hi Everyone. Happy July!
Today I'm showing you what I created for The Crafter's Workshop.
 
You can see my post HERE and while you're there check out the amazing art the Design Team is creating!.
 
I love this spread and now have an idea for a canvas.
 
 
 
 
 
The blue on the Flamingo was completely by accident.
 
 
 

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils to create this project.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
