brass stencil


Had fun using my brass stencil on this page. The edging is done with molding paste. Fun and easy.

hellebore


My Better Homes and Gardens inspired me to do a hellebore page. I'm finding all interactions with humans to be "hellofabore" lately. I'm thankful for mother nature and all her glory.

Game night



Really looking forward to my Grandson Logan coming over this weekend. Used DeDe's collage ideas to make this page from stuff right on my desk.

We have so much fun playing domino's and yahtzee with a little art thrown in.

I'm all ears


Found inkwell on Ustream and DeDe inspired me to use my inktense pencils and do my elephant ears from last summer. Love her stuff and she really has me inspired to do MORE art!

click twice for detail of the layers!

bayou calling my name


It took a while for this page to finish. I worked for days then painted it out with gesso. TOO DARK! The gesso was really thick so I closed the pages for the texture. The texture then reminded me of a swamp tour my sister and I took a while back. Played with the layers then found the picture and printed it off. Added some hoarded paper for the trees. And there ya go. Swamp. Listened to Tab and pulled favorite lines from his songs for the text. Stamped that using small stamps so not to take away from the swampy goodness.

They fed marshmallows to the gators to make for some good photo opts.

birds?


I am going to start watermarking my photos. Someone is advertising my photo as free wallpaper. Guess that is okay but at least want my name on it.

willowing page


I took a free workshop from willowing last week. I'm excited that my portrait turned out as well as it did. Can't wait to try it again. Eyes are a little wonky but that is okay. Relax.

Merry Christmas to ME!

Planned this shopping trip for two weeks! Got sick, so husband took me to the doctor first then headed to town. Dang. Should have picked up my medicine. She told me to rest and I said sorry going shopping....

So excited to play with my new stuff. TH tape, re-inkers, new color crushed olive pad and re-inker! I now have re inkers for all my TH dye ink pads. :) Got a bunch of stencils and mini misters.
