Fly by blogging

Well, still working lots and lots. I did go to a picnic last weekend that was for alumni of my high school. My brother, sister and I all went and it was interesting. Got to visit with some teachers I really liked. It's amazing how some of seemed so much older at the time but now there isn't that many years between us. Odd how that happens as you get older. We had our own after party at my brother's house for some sibling time. I do so love my brother and sister and am so grateful we all actually like each other and have so much fun.

A few weekends ago I did get in some creative time. This first one is just the beginning of the color layers but I love playing with textures. I had scored some European corrugated packing stuff at IKEA and have been itching to start using it along with some burlap and mesh.







This one was inspired by a video by Robin-Marie Smith. I love her art work with all the layering of colors. I used water color paper and freed it from it's bindings. ;-). I just went to town playing with stencils and Glimmer Mist







This is one that started it's life as the background for some ATC's I made for swap. I just had fun enhancing it and adding more layers with crackle paste and molding paste. I have to figure out how to give it a focal point but I think I'm liking it so far.












Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
