In the Kitchen with Frilly and Funkie!

Hi all! Check out the challenge at Frilly and Funkie this month! 

"This time of the year we find ourselves in the kitchen either preparing food for family and friends or just gathering around the kitchen table with family. Your challenge is to incorporate the kitchen somehow in your project. You can use an object from the kitchen in creating your project or you can use a sentiment or image that reflects the kitchen. You decide how to represent being in your kitchen in your art."

How fun is this! Well, seeing how I really do not like cooking, I made this little tag that I am going to set up beside my turkey this year! It should give my family a little chuckle for sure!


Hope you all enjoy your festive holidays! And the cooking!

Steampunk Santa

Hi everyone! I thought I would share a 12" x 12" canvas I just finished for this year's Christmas décor! I had a blast making this Steampunk Santa using some bits and pieces from DH's shop, as well as lots of sprays, paints, stencils, inks, and waxes! The image is from the internet!


I am going to use this for challenges on some of my favourite blogs....

SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge … HERE. … where anything goes steampunk/industrial! You have until the end of December to make something for here! Awesome site if I must say so myself!

Bleeding Art has a new mixed media challenge blog and this is the challenge for November... HERE. A new site with great inspiration!

Altered Eclectics is a challenge blog for mixed media and altered art only... HERE.

Here is a close-up of my canvas...




Thanks for taking a peek! Happy Art-ing!

White with Orange Blaze


Hi everyone! If you haven't checked out the amazing color challenge 
at White with 1 this month, you really should! I am not an orangey type of gal, but when I saw this color and this mood board for the November challenge, I just knew I had to play!



So, I dusted out my scrap room, and found all the orange blaze stuff I had! I was surprised I had as much as I did! It was a great challenge and I had a blast doing it!



.. and the final layout...





I use to do a lot of White + 1 challenges back when I scrapbooked, and it was so much fun to do this one! Thanks for the inspiration to dust off my scrappy goodness and play!

Art Daily Cafe - November 1st - Doors

                              Good morning all! If you have not checked out Art Daily Café
                               hosted by Finnabair and her talented team, you really have to! 
     This is the first prompt at Art Daily Café and I just loved creating my first project for this.


I decided to keep these challenges simple, fun, and flat! Just back to the basics with my art journaling! Using my stash of paints, stencils, and stamps only!


Just spent time putting down layers of acrylics using stencils and such until I was happy! Added my door and quote, some grey sparkly paint though a round stencil, some splatters and voila! Done!

Thanks for stopping by!
