I started with a magazine page and scraped gesso across the background using an old credit card. I used lots of different colors and then added some random stenciling to the paper using black and white paints. I punched circles and added them to my book. Now I just have to journal.
Dirty stencils can be a work of art. I don’t clean my stencils when I use them and they eventually turn into works of art.
January is always a busy time at the store, it is season here in South Florida – we have lots of snowbirds and visitors escaping from the frozen North. It is also the time of my annual trade show which is being held in Phoenix this year. I love going to the Trade show – I get to see and buy new products, discover new techniques and catch up with colleagues and friends. It is also a stressful time. I don’t like being away from the store during the busy times.
Flight to Phoenix. It looks so brown compared to Florida
This year I decided to try an AirBnB to stay at and it was great. This place had great reviews and was only about 15 minutes away.
The owner even left a huge bowl of fruit
I was impressed with my first AirBnB and will definitely do it again.
Phoenix Street Art
I love the rawness of street art
I had a little downtime during dinner and we went to a hotel that had some creepy dolls barricaded in the basement.
My Name is Possibility. True statement!
Be You Bravely
Love the background on this one. Used a small rubber brayer
Not all who wander are lost
Every Day Art
This piece I only used scraps that were on the floor
I could not get a photo to show how shimmery this card was. I used a soft metallic watercolor on the seaweed diecut piece and the background of the card was painted with black gesso and then covered with an airbrush medaum and soft teal paints
