rainbow lady

In getting quotes for the hanging heart journal page this one caught my attention. The rainbow lady came out. Thanks Angie. I used water color crayons and Twinkling H2O's.

Thanks for looking.

Spring is in the air - somewhere surely

I know Spring will eventually get here, well, unless it just jumps into summer without it. Most of my art these days seems to be Spring-y.

In my Yahoo group  ATCFUN  we have a weekly journal challenge. Right now we are working through the alphabet. We're on letter E. The challenge - a hidden envelope with something E in it. I had some cute scrapbook paper with these critters on it so naturally a zoo came to mind and maybe because its a zoo around my house. My envelope didn't hide very well but I really liked the page so I used it. Maybe I will make another that can hide better later but for now this is it.

The envelope is not so glaringly in your face really. I blame the scanner!

Can you believe an elephant was hiding in that little envelope!
I did a couple of ATC's just because. This one is from one of my drawings. I like the little bird so much I made a stencil of it. It came out pretty well. I had to do a little touch-up with a brush but I'm happy with it.

This is just weeds. I know not many people like weeds but I do. Most of the ones that bloom anyway. These are just made-up ones but I like them. I used Twinkling H2O's on the weeds. They are wonderful! You can't see the shimmer in the scan but they do shimmer.

This last is a journal page that just sort of emerged. I wasn't really happy with it but finally finished it after several days. I like it better now. I could see some big black words on it but couldn't read them. Finally just gave up, maybe they weren't meant to be read!

 Thanks for looking.

I am so ready for spring! I thought it was here but apparently it was just teasing! 

Easter Bunny Again - on a journal page

Song bird singing in Springtime - journal page

playing with Dylusions - journal page

This is a collage I've been working on for a while. It's done on a piece of  heavy cardboard, 22"X29".  I enjoyed working on it and am starting another one soon.

I joined a tag swap on the ATCFUN group.

The flower on the this tag is a stencil I made, the background is a heavy coat of gesso. I really like the texture.

 This tag has a thick messy coat of Glossy Gel medium on it. More texture.

These last two are just watercolors. no texture.

Thanks for looking.
