Hi - back with the finished cover of my new Art Journal. It seems everyone uses their Art Journals in different ways. I've decided that this journal will just contain experimental pages, i.e., color combos, different types of color - sprays, watercolors, etc. And, I will also be experimenting with the different media types, gesso, paste.
I really like how my cover turned out and I love my wings. Of course, there is a lot of blues and golds - because, yep, I do love my blues! And, I've said this to several people - that I am like an old crow and attracted to anything that sparkles, glimmers and shines!
So, that's it for today - oh - more snow is coming our way Saturday and Sunday - I know I'm really excited (sarcasm dripping heavily)!
Take care - later gator!

Here are a couple of mixed media tags I had also started in January - and just finished in the last day or so. I really love adding texture with pastes and colors.
My favorite is the one on the right. I used Art Basics Heavy Black Gesso - and the coverage is awesome. Next I added texture with Art Extravagance Modeling Paste and added color to it to achieve the blue background designs with a stencil.
For the tag on the left - I used Art Basics Heavy White Gesso and again Art Extravagance Modeling Paste and some color.
Thanks for stopping by - hope you like my projects. Later gator!
I have really come to enjoy working with mixed media and especially working with canvases, tags and scrapbook layouts. I did several scrapbook albums many years ago - but they weren't nearly so involved and they didn't use colors and mediums.
I usually put recipes with my posts - but these were started mid-January and just now finished. So, hopefully, in the future, I'll start tracking my supplies once again.
Thanks for stopping by - later gator!
SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD FEBRUARY 2015 CHALLENGE - CLICK HERE
Above, you see the beautiful Scrap Around the World blog challenge mood board for February 2015. I was inspired by the colors of yellow and green and, hopefully, the arrival of Spring sooner than later!
If you click the link under the mood board, it will take you directly to the challenge.
As my sister passed away recently - I have been pulling out pictures to scrap - and this happens to be the first layout with a picture of her and I at Easter in our new hats and Easter outfits and coats. But - don't the hats look like plates!
Thank you for stopping by - later gator!
I'm back to my blog once again. Here is my challenge entry for the February 2015 Lindy's Stamp Challenge. The colors are gorgeous - and I used them all: Frozen Jack Frost, Bouganvillea Fuchsia, Pretty in Pink Plink, Caribbean Blue and Toto's Tornado Black. You only need to use 2 of the 5 colors for the month - but they are all so awesome - I had to use them all.
Thanks so much for stopping by - later gator!
