Not My Color: Blue

I don't use blue very often in my art.
It's not my favorite color.
But when you use other shades of blue and some greens I start to like it.

Here is a mixed media piece I created.
It's on a 12x12 stretched canvas.

I used modeling paste, acrylic paints and TCW472 Persian Gate Stencil to add some texture.



What's your favorite color?

Nevermore! Love Ravens

I found these great Raven stickers.
I'm good for loving something and not using it.
I decided I can't do that anymore and I used them.

For this tag I used one stencil.
It has lots of design on it and just layered it.
I used modeling paste last and when it was try added some black ink to the paste.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Witches Halloween Tea

Here is another card I created at the scrapbooking event.
I've had the picture for a long time
I believe they are nuns not witches but how could you not think they are witches?

There are 31 for Halloween

Today I have a tag to show you that is full of bats.
Lots of bats.
There could be 31 or more.

To add a few additional bats to my tag instead of adding more stamps I used a bat paper punch to different spots on the tag.



The larger bat is from Tim Holtz Halloween Blueprint stamps.
I think this might be my favorite one I've created this year.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spooky and Bright

October 4th I attending a breast cancer event called Scraptoberfest.
It's an all day scrapbooking event.
I don't scrapbook.
I bring all my supplies to make Halloween cards.
The event runs 9am to 9pm.

Guess how many cards I made?

Nope!

Not even close!

Only

3

I talk most of the time.
There are the regulars you see every year.
And the newbies who you stop by to check out their scrapbook pages.

Here is one of the cards I created.



The background was created using a stencil and distress ink.
Before I leave I take different types of paper and stamp images to use so I'm not adding extra weight to my bag. 
The die cut window I had in my Halloween box of goodies.
The background stamp is on deli paper.
The letters I found at Michael's. Love them.

That's it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
