ATC/ACEO Girls

Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs  that I did for art swaps.  They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme.  There had to be one red heart in […]

A Girl Filled with Inner Joy

“Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle Inner Joy done with Inks, Faber Castell Gel sticks, Acrylic and Collage on 9×12 water color paper.

Farm Fresh Sketches

My theme this past week seemed to have been centered on farms and freshness, thanks to Junelle’s Farmers Market Yum and Art Workshop.  This is the last week for it and I am slowly working through it and savoring every project.  I love it!  The nice thing about it is even though this initial workshop […]

A Sketch With No Name Yet

Tangle Head

Over the weekend I took part in Ellen Million Graphics Sketch Fest #51.  I had hoped to have more time to spend, but as the garden and outdoor chores come first, I only had an hour and only time for one sketch. I chose the prompt “Zentangled Anything” by Tiffany Guin and came up with […]

Blue Princess

My love for fantasy, fairies and elves made me sketch this fairy tale princess.  Ink, acrylic and Faber Castell gel sticks on 5 x 7 mixed media paper. I call her ‘Blue Princess’ because of the obvious amount of blue I used and because she looks a little melancholy.

More Practice – To The Dreamer

To the dreamer, everything is possible. This piece was inspired by our first true spring day with blue skies and little fluffy clouds.  The message is so fitting right now, as I am up to my elbows in seeds and planting and organising for our other projects here at home and still trying to practice […]

She Had Faith In Herself

A new girl I painted over the weekend. I cut her out when I finished painting her.  I painted a background page and added her to it, along with some scraps, sentiments and washi tape.  I painted over it more than once.  I struggle with mixed media backgrounds so this was a great exercise for […]
