I'm BACK! Going to try and keep up with posting arts, crafts, jewelry, mixed media...etc!

post signatureGoing to start the year of strong...with a painting challenge.  30 Paintings in 30 days! this is the site I am following along with!  Since there are NO RULES....I figure it's a good one to start with.  I cleaned my craft room today & realized I haven't touched my paints/mixed media table in months...yikes!  So I had a leftover 4X4 deep had some stenciled papers already on it....perfect base...

I had used some stencils and gesso....some mists.  This was done months ago...ready to make art!

Its gloomy and cold and WHITE with snow here in Colorado...I had to use some color! I pulled yellow, teal and red.  Used a pallet knife to spread color.  Thought it was too much, so I pulled it off...and loved the results.

I pulled out same stencil from the papers...and applied molding paste.  Since the paint wasn't dry below it grabbed it. I think I like it!

Nice dimension and texture.  I think it's DONE!  For now....later I will likely add some doodles or dimensional art.

Daily Paper Prompt: linear

Used a handmade stamp to make "lines" in some medium. Gesso and paint drips. A few pastel rubs too. Since this spread had an inclusion in it I went ahead and made a mini page.

Daily paper prompt: ROUND

I went to Jerry's Artarama and got a free catalyst tool and had to try it out! Used it with gel medium to make round shapes. Lots of fluid acrylic in teal. Some clearance pastels. Added a random quote for fun.

Gelli prints on deli paper

After making a few fabric prints I grabbed a few sheets of deli paper to print on. The more layers the better!

Gelli play! On fabric

PPulled out my gelli printing plate today for a little creative play. I purchased some fabric a few weeks ago and wanted to try making a tote. Or a bag. But it's too this. It will be great on a mixed media canvas or something. Here's what I got from my printing today:

DPP: flowers

The third prompt was flowers. Still using my gelli print journal. Since there was a few layers of paint and sprays already. I added a few more for bold colors. Drew a couple flowers with India ink and blurred the background with some gesso. Then I found a flower quote and perfectly done! 


Loved this prompt. I used the back page of the window page. Drips of all colors going all directions. Pulled out some old sticker letters and sprayed black. Had an accidental drip of black ink so went with it and added more!
