This background on this tag is alcohol inks on Yupo paper. The flourish is painted watercolor paper and cut with a long sizzix die. The silhouettes are a TH die and cut from heavy textured felt. The saying is stamped on deli paper and one I haven't used yet.

This tag uses chipboard and diecuts. I made a doily stencil with one of my diecuts. Used it in the background with spray ink and then used the aluminum foil piece to put on the tag under the saying. The key is made from a recycled cardboard piece that my 18 m/o grandson painted, and then cut with TH die. The stamp saying was stamped on deli paper and was one I hadn't used yet.

Art Lives

Tag background is alcohol ink on Yupo paper. Art Lives is a stamp that I haven't used in a very long time. Stamped houses and then distressed with pen work. I had a real shaky hand when I did the pen work but really liked the outcome.

She rises high into the unknown

I started this watercolor with the intent of trying a new technique in the background. I used my Dr. Ph Martin's hydrus watercolors and crumpled Saran Wrap on watercolor paper. It made such a beautiful background that I decided to go ahead and complete the page. The colors were perfect for this girl who was inspired from a clipping from the newspaper. The hydrus watercolors are so vibrant. I love working with them.

My friend Marie posted a picture of bluebirds at her bird bath.. The little one so captured my interest that I had to do a watercolor of it. The little one looks as if it wants to speak to me. He's so cute!

Snowy Day from Leon

We had a snow storm last night in the south. Here are a few shots taken today. I measured 5 inches on my walk around the neighborhood. It was a beautiful, fluffy snow. Easy to walk in and clean off the cars and deck. Went out several times and really enjoyed being outside.
