Hey gang! 

I want to share my latest mixed media wall hanging.

I've done this on an 8 x 10 mdf board topped with book text.

I started out,
for whatever reason,
with colors I don't usually use.
I wanted something light.
Added all the colors through stencils.

After getting the colors down I topped it with some burnt umber.
Gotta have that aged/vintage look!

Layered a bunch of goodies that I printed out,
tags, stamp, buttons, flowers & quote that I stamped on bits of paper.



and paint spattered.

The bee hive tag below is from 
My Artistic Adventures Etsy here.

Another look at the finished piece.....

I so love your visits!

Mission Inspiration February

Hey there friends!

Sharing my February
art journal page
Having fun with this group

10 steps all planned out for you to follow. 

Here's my journal page.....

The list of prompts.....

Once I hit #4 dot's seemed to take over.
I use a dot stencil,
then the comb marks ended up looking like dots.

Textbook shapes?
Yup, circles!

 Finished off with a dotted washi tape!

Looking forward to next month!

Thanks for stopping by!

Art journal fun...

This afternoon I joined the Kraaft Shaak's
Kraaft it Live show,
(you can see the rerun of the show here)
and saw one of my favorite artist's,
 CeeCee from CreationsCeeCee,
at work in her art journal.

After the show I was inspired to do this page in my art journal.....

Always so much fun escaping into art!

Be Happy....

Good morning!

Today I'm sharing a fun project I did
using a bunch of different stencils and paint.....

This was done on mdf board.

I added some book text and layered a bit of gesso,
then came the stencil fun!

Once my background was done 
I added a couple pieces of ephemera that I had,
added the heart using an old piece of 
Basic Grey patterned paper 
and the "Be Happy" quote came from a piece of printed tissue paper.

The butterfly...
I have these old acetate die-cut pieces from K&Company that I never know what to do with so I thought why not try adhering it with some matte medium and see what happens and it worked pretty well!

I finished with some white paint spatters and doodling.

Thank you for stopping by!
Be Happy!
