Weekend update

In case any of you were wondering, I didn’t post on Friday because I had a long day of cleaning at work and an evening of dancing which didn’t leave much time for in depth creating and blogging. In fact, my daily art was a quick sketch on a previously painted journal page. When I looked at the page, I immediately saw the elephant shape and the lady bust so I decided to sketch Marie-Elephantoinette! See what I did there?!?

I will paint her at a later date. And over the weekend, I kept things simple again with some doodling on the painted branch for Saturday and a mandala on Sunday.

Finally, today, I altered my third and last clipboard. Once again, I only used acrylic paints (Americana and Distress) and stencils (Penny Black, The Crafter’s Workshop, and unknown for the fairies). And I decided that fairies were a great addition to go with the butterflies and birds.

I’ll show you when all three clipboards will be on the wall.

Thanks for visiting!

Back in action


It’s been almost 6 months since my last post. Where has the time gone? 

I’ve been keeping busy, creating art daily. For those who follow me on Instagram or on my friends list on Facebook, you have already seen what I’ve done. For the others, you will have to be patient but I promise that I will show the things I have done. So far I have worked on Zentangle coasters, ATCs, mini collage, 3d cards, mandalas and index cards (the latter for 2 months.) For the month of August, I decided on a free-for-all approach instead of a specific technique or substrate.

Today, I decided to alter a clipboard. I wanted it to be full enough to hang on the wall as art but not so full that I couldn’t use it to hold other things such as inspiring images and/or words. I’m very pleased with the result. See for yourself! I’ll list the material used below the photo. 


Materials:

Artist’s Loft acrylic paints in Violet and Phthalo Blue

Americana acrylic paints in Lemon Yellow, Flamingo, Orange Sherbet, Chartreuse and Coastal Waters

Stickles in Diamond (not visible in the photo but it’s on parts of the three yellow butterflies.)

Stencils from Prima Marketing: Finnabair’s Butterflies and Drops; The Crafter’s Workshop: Butterfly Meadow; unknown brand for the dragonfly and ornate butterfly
Thank you for visiting my blog. My plan for this month is to blog at least 5 times a week to show you everything I’ve created so far this year. Hopefully, I’ll get back into the habit of blogging regularly this way. 

See you tomorrow!
