Learning from others

I love how Mindy Lacefield creates her little people with all the bright and fun colors in their face. My girl may not be as bold but Mindy's art was definitely my inspiration. I think it is a good lesson in learning when you try on someone else's work. It gives you an opportunity to see and think like them if only for a moment. I also think it is important to give credit back to the artist for the inspiration and the new processes learned.

Thank you Mindy! :-)

Cute Collage Girl

This is just a quick and fun piece I made for fun. What better reason to create right? That is a Teesha Moore stamp in her hair and I think I am still going to add some words that will something to the effect of "Be still and listen to the voice of your soul."  I Love your comments so fire away! :-)

Merry, Merry, Homemade Giftwrap

I made this simple yet fun packaging to wrap some gifts for my friend Cynthia.
What I used: brown paper lunch bags, white acrylic paint (I have fallen in love with a brand called Cryl from Germany), permanent black ink pen, washi tape, blank tags.

I am sure you can figure out by looking at the pictures below how I created them. You should try it, so much fun! I love, love, love the black and white on the brown bag. Also, the washi tape and the tags are a fun touch and I liked figuring out a design for the tag to match the bag.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!


p.s. the embrace imperfection stamp I used on the snowman came from Teesha Moore - she is a sweetheart and sent it along with a few others when I ordered her zines. Love her and her art!

Gift Tags and Paintings

I was playing with the Gelli Arts gel printing plate which is really cool! I did a bunch of tags and decided they would be cute to use as gift tags. Here is the first one I made and used on a gift to give away. I think it came out pretty cute!
FRONT

BACK

Here is a painting that is nearly finished. The only thing left to do is put the quote I made in her hair. It is going to say "Believing in yourself is your greatest source of power". 


And last, here is a Jellypus I made for my Grandson's room. He wants a fun, aquatic motif. I thought this fantasy creation was perfect for a five year old. lol


I love the way they turned out!  See you next time. :-)

What's On My Easel?

This is my in-progress of the painting currently on my easel. I need to bust out some paintings because I have quite a few shows between now and the end of October.

This is called "Love Makes A Home" and is 18 x 24" on stretched canvas and I still have a ways to go with it.
