Party Time!

The Etsy Cottage Style Team is having a blog party.

Thanks for stopping by!

How have I been spending my time lately?

Painting angels...lots of them!

and using crackle paint.

I love it.

I love the textural interest that the crackle paint adds to the painting...

I love the deep lines of color I can add once the crackle paint has been added

to the halo and wings....

I'm also loving Walnut Ink Stain....

Love the aged appearance it adds to the paintings.

Oh, and I forgot the gold leaf I'm adding to my paintings!

I'm loving that too.

Did I mention the beeswax?

I love the shine and texture it adds to the artwork.

And the is so yummy!

So that's what I've been playing around with

and all my favorites.

Stop by the Cottage Style Blog and

check out the rest of the blogs

It's a blog party....Have fun!

Have a great day,

Touched by an Angel

"Touched by an Angel"

I am loving the copper colored paint of her dress!

and all the texture from the beeswax, papers, and gold leaf!
It continues to rain here in Delaware.... I coined the phrase "Seasonal Affective Psychosis" due to the large amount of psychotic patients that continue to fill our hospital...I can only attribute it to the weather! I come home so tired and drained that I have spent very little time painting after work. My art journal pages look as crazy as the patients....I fear posting them - someone may commit me to the my hospital! Even my blog postings are sparse. I must try to improve..
Enjoy your weekend and make your Dad's feel loved!!

Art Journaling using Layer Love Pages....

Yesterday, I felt that I was under the influence of a massive dose of caffeine! I finished two paintings....drew a couple more girls and still felt that I needed to do something. Of course there was plenty I could have done around my house or my studio (cleaning, straightening art supplies, etc.) but I wasn't in the mood for that!

So I used my page from my Layer Love of my favorites...and did my first attempt at Art Journaling. Loved it!! It's addicting....which is not good. I already have way too many things that I am trying to do. I guess I can save this for right before bed and when waiting at the doctors office, etc. What about you? When do you art journal? How do you find time to create lovely art journals when you are also creating art in other forms?? I'd love to hear from you.

Have a great Sunday,

New Painting....Wish for an Angel

Now Available on Ebay!


Thought I would share my newest painting...she's a mixed media angel I created on a wood panel. Cute isn't she?

I keep challenging myself, trying new things. My Layer Love class continues with Julie Pritchard. It's a painting class - creating backgrounds. The backgrounds are great for art journaling or other projects. I have not gotten involved in art journaling yet though I would like to. I am fascinated by the work of Teesha Moore and others like her. I'm not sure when I would find the time to do this but I think it so cool! I have always doodled on papers at work are covered with flowers, stars, shapes, etc. The more boring the meeting, the more doodling I do. I think I've decided that life would be so much easier if there were 36 hours in the day and I didn't need to sleep.

Have a great day!
