More Color Mixing and Floral Painting Fun

As I mentioned on my last post, I have signed up for a new class with Traci Bautista, “FLORAL delight,” and I love it!  I have only been through 2 of the 6 lessons and I have learned a lot already.  One of the things that we have done is actually do some color mixing […]

My Journal Monday–Week 23

This week is fairly simple as I am preparing to head out of town for Artfest Rising!!  So excited!  I can hardly wait to get there and get going.  It is going to be a grand time indeed!   Here is what is on my desk to day for My Journal Monday–using another Stencil Girl Products’ […]

My Journal Monday–Week 22

Last week I posted some journal pages that I had created primarily with some of Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray inks and a Stencil Girl Products’ StencilClub (StencilGirl StencilClub) stencil set from November that was designed by Seth Apter : Unfortunately you could not really see one of the spray ink colors in this spread.  It is an iridescent that […]

Paint Party FridayI’m back on a portrait track again.  I signed up with Mindy Lacefield for her the 24 Faces Project on-line class.  I’m very excited.  She has such a simplistic way of doing her little girl faces–who can resist?  I also signed up for a refresher of sorts, the Refined and Unrefined Face on-line class.  […]

Productivity

Vacation & Art!

It has been a busy couple of months with some BIG deadlines both at work and personally at church and some other areas of my life.  I am going home today but I have spent the last week with family at a rental home on the beach on Hilton Head Island, SC.  It has been […]
