Spring Cleaning

I have started to get into mixed media. This page was created with water color pencils and paints. I stamped the swirls in permanent ink and did some Zentangle/doodling. What have you been cleaning?

Simple Things

We are on week #10 of LifeQ's art journal adventure. This week's question is "What is your favorite saying?" The background was created with black and yellow watercolor paint. I stamped the butterflies in black Stazon. Next I started layering on the pattern papers. I used white, black, and gold acrylic paints to add a distress appearance. Finishing touches were a paper flower and light blue ribbon.

Savor the Dark

I'm participating in bcdoule 52 weeks of Life Q's challenge. I have put my journal together with my old Christmas cards. I am very new to mixed media but this is a great way to give it a try. This layout is week #2: Are you afraid  of the dark?

Do you see my answer in the layout? Hint: Check the skeleton hat. I created the a background by using wax paper and Luminar in pearlescent paint. I used a old Halloween skeleton and painted it with the Lumiar for the ghost outline. I then drew the skeleton frame in with a black Sharpie. I sponged purple and black ink over the background. The flourish die cut was added to the left edge of the layout. The finishing  touches were a 3-d skeleton head and clear sequins.

Let It Snow

Over at Verve Stamp blog this month's the December's challenge theme is "Oh Christmas Tree."  My card reminds me about Christmas snow and the fun of going sledding. I also participated in the Cat's Pajamas challenge. This color challenge required us to use red, kraft and black on our projects. I truly liked how this color layout worked. Adding the clear and silver sequins gave life to this card sketch. Next I added snowflakes to give the impression of snow.
