Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

I just came across this challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, and I knew I just had to bust out my art supplies and play! I LOVE snarky! So I made this postcard, 4" x 6" using paper that I typed my background words on (of which I do say to my family... sometimes out loud, sometimes in my head!) and adhered it to my 4" x 6" postcard. I then stamped and embossed the circles. I colorized the whole thing using distress oxides, added some more vertical stamping... and added my lady and title! Voila! Snarky!!  



Love this challenge blog and will definitely be checking out next weeks challenge! Thanks for the challenge girls!!

Happy Birthday "A Vintage Journey"

Hi all! It is a birthday celebration at A Vintage Journey this month and what a better way to celebrate their journey but to do an art journal page for this month!

I used tons of inks, paint, #5's and a lot more goodies! 


I think it is pretty obvious that "Journey" and Happy 5th Birthday is the theme for this little page!

Happy Birthday AVJ!!!

White With 1 - Royal Blue

Good Morning all! You really need to check out the awesome color and
inspiration board at White With 1 this month! The design team rocked this challenge with Royal Blue everywhere!

Here is the inspiration board for you to check out....



I love this color but had a tough time with it for some reason! 



I used some metal under the photo and upper right hand corner that I used black gesso to cover the silver it was and added some waxes on it to achieve a deep blue. I added some stencils, ink splatters, embossed chipboard pieces and the hands. Clean and simple this month, but it turned out OK.

Thanks for taking a peek and hope you can join us at White With 1 this month!

February Art


Hi everyone! It has been a cold snowy month here in Southern Ontario, so I spent a lot of time working in my art journals! Thought I would share a few things I have done this month!









It was fun creating and finding my style.. which involves a lot of white space by the looks of it! LOL!

Thanks for taking a peek!
