Stampscapes card - Hula Dancers #1

This is a stampscapes scene that I stamped on watercolour paper and painted with watercolours. The hula dancers are by Inkadinkado. I coloured the hula dancers with markers. I stamped three different scenes with the hula dancers so that is why this card is #1.
A Hawaiian vacations sounds like a great idea right now doesn't it? :D
Take care and do the hula!

Zentangle Inspired Art - Birthday Card

I drew this card front and copied it so that I could use it again and colour it to match whatever colour card  that I want. I drew some zentangle patterns and also included a Lilah Bean (the small child-like figure) from the books by Sandra Steen Barthlolomew. I find that I like to add Lilah Beans to a lot of my tangle and art journal pages. They are just so cute and happy.
I now want to create different card fronts using tangle patterns and doodling designs that I can use over and over. Why don't you try one? :D
Please leave a message and let me know that you stopped by. Thanks.

Tree Art Journal - Birds on a Branch

I started this page by stamping some leaves in versamark and then rubbing pan pastels over top. Then I used a stencil and pan pastels for the birds on the branch. After that I did some more stamping with inks on the background and drawing and doodling with black fine line markers. I also coloured in the birds and branches with markers. I've always loved the autumn colours. I guess we will be seeing much more of that soon.
Enjoy what's left of summer! :D

Art Journal - Home Time

On this journal page I was painting the page to use up some extra paint when I saw a house shape emerging. So I went with it and painted this simple scene. It's fun to see what speaks to you on a page when you are just slapping down some paint.
Give it a try and show me what you make! :D I'd love to hear from you.
Have fun!!!!

Art Journal - Painted Face

Here is a face that I painted using only a paintbrush and watercolour paint. I did not draw it with a pencil first. It is a  little rough as I wanted it to look very spontaneous, which it was! *L*  I am enjoying trying to learn to do faces and I will keep practicing. I also want to try the faces at different angles. Wish me luck! :D
