Another Mixed Media Piece

Hello Friends,

Here is another mixed media piece I did on Saturday at my friend's gallery. Besides this one, I did several small ones with roses or tulips. I didn't have time to get pics of those.

All of my art pieces were done on recycled boxboard.

Thanks for stopping in. I appreciate your visit and look forward to reading your comments.

Smiles & hugs,

Mixed Media Pieces

Hi Friends,

I did a mixed media demonstration at a friend's gallery and gift shop yesterday. Here a couple of pieces I left for sale in her store. I used pieces of box-board with layers of collage, paint, stencils and ink. I painted the stenciled face and eyes (Jane Davenport) with acrylic paints.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & smiles,

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Challenge #3

Hello Friends,

If you are not yet aware, there is a new kid on the challenge block called "2 Crafty Critter Crazies". It is the brain child of my good online buddy NanaConnie (Grammy's Attic). Angela Hoynes (Crafting With Jack) also jumped on board with us and we started the challenge in April. It is a truly anything goes challenge (all kinds of arts and crafts are welcome), with one catch - you have to include a critter.

This month's sponsor is Sparkle n Sprinkle. I chose this beautiful set called "Bahama Woodstar". I printed it on water colour paper and had a very satisfying play with my Yarka water color paints. The set includes several images (coloured and non-coloured) and several sentiments as well.

In my first painting, I resized and combined three SnS images for a unique composition. 
For my second painting, I combined two of the SnS images. Both little paintings made lovely thank you cards.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will join in our challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies or at least stop in for the mid-month post when we show off some of our pets.

Hugs & smiles,
