Paisley Zentangles

I love to doodle, so zentangles are a perfect outlet.  You can keep them black/white as this one is, or color in the designs.  They are just fun and relaxing.

Another journal page inspired by Donna Downey.  This one titled "Romance" is done on canvas.  I used the gel medium transfer technique, painted, flowers, ribbon and other pieces for dimension.  I really enjoy working on the canvas. 


My interpretation of Donna Downey's Poppy journal page.  Done on canvas using the gel medium transfer technique.  I drew and painted the flowers, used a different quote and made some other changes.  In the center of the flowers, I did french knots with embroidery thread.  This gives the IRL piece so much dimension.  I love working on the canvas.

Paris Dreams on Canvas

Today is my granddaughter Emma's ninth birthday.  She saw a version of this "Paris Dreams" posted on FB from my art journal. She's redoing her bedroom in a Paris theme and said she really wanted this done for her wall.  It is done on a canvas and varies a little from the original posted earlier on this blog.  Happy birthday my sweet Emma, love Gramie.
