www.rainbowelephant.com. I then tangled inside the tree with my own ideas. I added the hanging decorations and base and then printed Merry Christmas. I shaded with pencil.
How are you doing with your Christmas projects? I still have bookmarks and cards to do. Christmas always sneaks up too fast!
Happy creating! :D

For this 2-page spread, I first covered the pages with striped patterned paper. Then I sprayed Adirondack Color Wash through a Crafter's Workshop stencil. I stamped the border with border stamps that I made with left over rubber. I then wrote my mantra title with a black marker pen and did some journaling.
Now let's hope it works!!! :D
Have a healthy and creative day.

I did this mixed media collage page using some grocery ads. I first painted and stamped the background and then added patterned paper for the border. I outlined the border with a fine line marker and stamped on it as well. Then I collaged pictures of fruit on one side of the spread and vegetables on the other side. I added the title with a marker.
Here's to happy, healthy eating! :D

I began by gluing two pages together and did this mixed media title page. I gessoed the page and then used paints and inks and stamps and markers and stickles....and whatever I can't remember.... to create this page.
Stay tuned for more pages to come. If you have some ideas for my book, please let me know! I'd love some input from you.
Here's to healthy living! :D

I made a photo house using photos from a Mixed Minded workshop that we went to with mixed media artist Donna Downey. I even put our pictures in the flower centers! The top photo is Donna and Karen. The second one down is me and Donna. The third down is Donna and my friend Linda. The bottom photo is Donna being kissed by Karen. All good fun!
Below are some detailed views. If you click on any of these pictures, you can see a bigger photo. Check out those happy faces in the flowers!!! :D I also doodled with a fine line black marker all over the canvas to add interest.
I hope there's always sunshine and smiles in your house!
