Work in Progress

Trying something different --- again:)

I had a canvas that started as a mixed media piece. I painted over it and just kept adding until I got this.
Not sure where to go from here. They flowers have several layers of paint as well as white pen and I even scratched some of the lines in. 

What should i do next? I feel it needs some white somewhere. Splatters? More stamping or stencils? I would appreciate any ideas!!!
I might have to get another photo in the morning as the colors are a bit off here.

Thank you so much for visiting and for your comments! Really - leave me your ideas!!

I am up today over at the Helmar Blog and would love for you to check out my project!

My mom recently went to a nursing home and while it is nice, it is just not homey. So I made a frame for her with some pictures that I know mean a lot to her.


My mom was thrilled when she saw this and it is now hanging in her room!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

I love the small 3 x 3 canvases. They are such fun for creating wonderful handmade projects such as this ornament!

I love this mixed media effect!

A little time for watercolors

I am participating with Grumbacher's ATC Swap titled Winter Wonderland.

Here is my scene

I am still learning to use my watercolors and to be patient! I want to keep going instead of letting them dry.

I'm Back

I am back from spending 2 1/2 weeks with my granddaughter. I miss her giggles, her exploring the world and being exhausted:):) It is hard work chasing a 7 month old who is crawling all over, trying to walk and into everything. She has the most gorgeous nails - just like her mom.

I needed to make a couple of thank you cards.

I am in love with this new stencil I got From Stamplorations! Stayed tuned because I will be giving one of these away before the holidays!!

Adding this to Simonsays Monday Challenge - thanks.

And thank you for visiting. I appreciate your kind words!

Thank you

I tried something different with this card. I used Bo Bunny Stencil paste with a circle stencil. Once dry, I went over the circles with Gelatos, wetting it a bit to blend. I stamped over the circles with Altenew's Doodle Flower Stamp. Added leaves and a sentiment.

Thank you for visiting! I hope you are inspired!

Welcome to the World

Heading out today to visit my 6 month old granddaughter.

Before i go, I finished a layout of her entry into this world. It did not go as planned. After a day of labor, my daughter ended up having a C section. Hard to believe this sweet thing is already 6 months old!!!

Let's Be Mermaids

My 6 month old granddaughter loves the pool! Just like with everything else, she has no fear. She kicks and splashes and is ready to take off.

For this layout, I turned her into a mermaid. Loving Bo Bunny Down by the Sea collection!!

I used this sketch from StuckSketches

Thank you for visiting me. Your comments make me smile!

Thinking of you

Needed to send a card to someone in the hospital. I used pattern paper for the backgound. The flowers are stamped and painted on watercolor paper. Something a little different.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good week!

I am heading out this week to spend time with my 6 month old granddaughter. That means I am trying to finish up and work ahead before I go. I have a show/sale with my art group the weekend after I get back. This is a work in progress card. Needs to be finished with a sentiment and maybe some bows or something.

I did decide that I did not like the paper I am using for these. It is not working as well with the watercolors as I thought it would. Oh well. Live and learn:)

Thank you for visiting on this rainy Saturday! I hope it is sunny where you are!
