Holiday Art Market

Tomorrow is my local art group's Holiday Art Market. I have spent the week finishing up last minute projects, starting new projects and then cleaning up the mess!

Here is most of what I am taking:
Lots of cards -

Mixed media canvases-

New projects! I did paint pouring and created 2 paintings

I hate to waste anything so I used the leftover paint to create necklaces with glass slides

And covered a box lid.

Now the goal is to come home with a lot less of this!! 

Thank you for your visit! I appreciate your kind words and support! 

Adding this to PaintPartyFriday. Please stop there and check out the amazing artists!!!

Believe You Can Fly

A butterfly card using a beautiful die from Pink and Main

Adding this to SimonSays Monday Challenge - take flight. The ribbon is not as crooked as it looks here:)

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words!

Wedding card

A friend of mine recently married. Instead of buying a card, I painted this for them. I used her wedding colors of pink and gold as my inspiration. She loved it.

Since I was visiting my granddaughter, I did not gt much other artwork done, except for these Halloween canvases with my granddaughter's help:) They will be put together with ribbon for a halloween decor. At 18 months she is beginning to understand what paint is and after I did the ghost foot she told me "more":)

Adding the card to SimonsSays Wednesday Challenge - anything goes.

Thank you for visiting! I appreciate your kind words which put a smile on my face!

Paint Party Friday

It is Friday and I ended my week by subbing as a parapro in a classroom. Today was the Pumpkin fun run so the entire school went outside and the younger grades ran/waled 1 mile, the older 2. I mostly walked with a little guy named Oliver who talked the entire time:)

I have a watercolor that I have been working on. It is 9 x 12. I still need to work on layering color and waiting for it to dry!

I sent another alphabet card out to my granddaughter but forgot to take a photo. Will have to get one once it gets there. 

Adding this to PaintPartyFriday. Please go there for wonderful inspiration!

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words!!

Altered Sign

 was cleaning out a basket of supplies and found a cute wood pumpkin sign that was just calling to be altered. I painted it orange, then gathered my supplies including paper, flower trim, tags, etc. My Helmar 450 was the perfect adhesive for this project because it dries quickly and clearly. 


Would love for you to swing by the Helmar Blog and check it out!

Adding this to simonsaysstamp Wednesday Challenge - anything but a card! Thank you for your kind words!

It is Friday,  so time for a recap of this week's projects for PaintpartyFriday

I got more alphabet post cards in the mail for my granddaughter

I am enjoying creating these cute animals. 

I am also participating in Inktober

I really need to work on my drawing/sketching skills. Hopefully they will improve by the end of the month!

Thank you for visiting. Wishing you a creative weekend! 

Thank you for all your kind words. They mean a lot to me.
