Drawing in my Art Journal.

This is a model in a magazine I used to draw my image.

and decided it was time to play with it once more.
I colored her with a mix of mediums from markers to colored


so far I think she turn out cute.
I do enjoy drawing.
Take time to play.

Birthday Card and gift bag.

I made this cute vellum envelope card
for Jen she is having a giveaway on her
You Tube channel.
I used a georguss girl stamped image.
the paper is from a DCVW paper stack I pick up at Michaels
The create collection.

This cute muslin bag was embellished first with my
gelli plate using my stencils and acrylics.
I added one of my handmade burlap flowers and some trim.
Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day.


I love making ATC's they are so much fun.
This one is with a napkin and scraps.

I glue my scraps of paper to a 3.5 x 2.5 piece of paper and set it aside
 until I'm ready to embellish it.
Its a great way to use up scraps.

This one is a canvas ATC.
Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day.

New pages in my "mini" Mixed media book.

I am sharing some pages I have done so far this year in my Mini Mixed Media book. ( 6x5 )
I love it because its not a huge area to work on . 

This one I used watercolor pencils and a wet brush.
and some stenciling.
This is where I added paper and texture.

I had fun with this one . I used Seven Gypsy's collage paper and a image I had laying on my desk.
Art journaling for me has no rhyme or reason I just start and let it tell me what it wants when I get there.

Mixed Media Tag..

Hello and Welcome to my Scrap Room...
I stopped By one of my LSS ( local Scrapbooking Store)
and found they had some new goodies to play with from CHA.
This is called Kroma crackle.
I just love this stuff.  Its almost like the crackle medium by Plaid. BUT..
It turns into a paintable piece to work on.  It is already crackled when you paint over it.
cool hu....
Here I have a close up for you to see this amazing new medium to use on Tags,
Art Journals ect....
Thanks for stopping

Recycled Alarm clock.

I know Tim Holtzs has his new clocks now, but before they came out
 I had this clock my friend had gifted me.

I used G45 paper Lady's Diary paper. 

The texture on the clock was from mixing sand from Michaels and Elmer's glue. 
to add color I used Tattered Angles Sprays. ( rose chalk and coffee)

The lace was from my stash.

I white washed it with gesso to give it a
old look.

I just love how it turned out. 
I wish I had taken a picture of it before.
Thanks for stopping.
Have a Great Day.

All the embellishment's are a mixture of game pieces to
lace and charms.
