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.

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!
