Happy Birthday

I made a quick and simple card using paints, a pen and a stamp.

This was really a fun and quick project! I drew the balloons with pencil and added layers of watercolors. Using a pen, I outlined and added the details. The stamp is an exclusive set from

This Handmade Essentials Stamp Set has wonderful sentiments for every day use.

Paint, paint and more paint!

I have an art sale November 9th but will be gone for the week and a half before. So, that means I need to get everything ready before I go!!

I completed about 6 or 7  8 x 10 mixed media canvases and a half dozen ornaments.

Now I have been painting cards. At the last sale I sold 2 dozen! I have been focusing on winter/holiday themed ones.

These are two of my favorite larger canvases. I think the church needs something at the top. Will have to hunt through my stash to see what I have.

And here are a couple of cards

I am the world's slowest painter so it takes me forever to complete these. Also I am learning to put them aside to dry before moving on. By having 5 or 6 going at once, I am able to do this. 

I still have next week so hopefully can get more done. 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to visit PaintPartyFriday to see all the links posted to some amazing art!

I am one who loves to experiment with materials. And, I have quite a large stash of them:)

I repurposed an old canvas by giving it a background using some metallic paints. Then I got out oils and a palette knife. I had seen something similar on pinterest and wanted to try it.

I need more practice but am pretty happy with my first effort. 

I also made a smaller canvas for an ornament

I still need to add finishing touches. I will be adding these to the pile I have for an upcoming sale in November. 

I hope you like them. Adding this to PaintPartyFriday! Please check out the artists and wonderful inspiration over there!! 

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!!

Here are some of the ones that are mostly done.

My room is a disaster with every surface - including the floor - covered. Once I get these finished I can start on cards!

Happy PaintPartyFriday! Be sure to visit all the lovely people over there!
