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!

Hi Everyone. Happy July!
Today I'm showing you what I created for The Crafter's Workshop.

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.

Monet Water Lillies - MY WAY

Hi Everyone!
I'm very excited to show you my latest painting.
I've always loved Monet's Water Lillies paintings and could stare at them forever. Being on The Crafter's Workshop Design Team I have lots of stencils and decided it's time to create my own.
 
 
Using the Koi Pond  and the Wildflowers stencils, I created this painting.  The lilies are from the Whimsical Shrooms stencil and I added them with modeling paste.
 
This piece was created on a Birch wood cradled panel.
 

 

I lightened up the photo so you can see all the lily pads.


 
I'm now working on a series of these paintings.
I think I'm addicted.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Traveling with Art Supplies

Hi Everyone!
When I go on vacation I always carry art supplies with me.
This trip I kept to watercolors knowing that paint and other supplies would be available.
 
You can see what my bag looks like and all The Crafter's Workshop stencils I carried HERE.
 
Today I'm going to show all the unfinished pages I worked on.
 
These pages are for coloring.

I used watercolors on these.
 

 
 
Here are some other pages I used watercolors, paint, modeling paste and ephemera.
 

This page I just wanted to see what it would look like with lots of legs!






 
Not sure how I'm going to finish this one.
Although it has given me an idea for a canvas.

 
I've had these Zebras for a while now.
I cut them from reams of paper.
The Overlapping Stripes stencil is perfect for this page.


 
 
That's it for now.
You can see all The Crafter's Workshop stencil on Scrapbook.com.
 
More art to follow soon!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love it when it just happens.....

I didn't even plan or think about.
I just used what paints I had on my table.
I love this one.

You can see I used the Oblong stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
 
 
 
 
I created this on mixed media paper.
Since I didn't know what I was going to do, I didn't want to use a canvas or wood board. Now I wish I did.
 
Also, as I was cleaning up my table even the deli paper underneath everything I worked on this weekend looks pretty cool.
