Art to be finished!

I am posting this to myself to push myself to finish this piece in the NEW YEAR!!! AHEM that starts FRIDAY!!!! Note to self...just do it!

Snow girl



I like to think because I was working on this little snow girl that it snowed here today. You see I live in coastel SC where it NEVER snows... but I adore snow. I love the quiet it brings,the secure feeling of being in a snug house by a warm fire. The way a big snow stops the world. I know it brings trouble too, but so does an excess of anything. BUT TODAY ..I got to step outside in my little world and hear the silence a snow fall brings and that was amazing. Of course it doesn't stay; but I have my snow girl to remember!

Tags,atc's and cards

Back to the basics for a few swaps..tags, ATCs (birds in hats! ) and cards..doing a little destashing at the same time..
     

Have had these graphic 45 papers (below) for a while. As we all do, just kept staring at them and finally I decided no matter what I do with them ...I HAVE TO USE THEM!!! so just create something..and I DID!


punkins and dreams...

My sweet JET painting his punkin...what an artist!these two sweet babies are the fulfillment of my dreams and prayers,,not having children of my own, but being married to the man of my dreams... the only thing missing was grandkids one day...well in comes our best and closest friends (younger than us yet waited to have children many years themselves ...) and VOILA after being married for 32 years I HAVE GRAND BABIES!! they are the sweetest most precious gift in the world. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayers and answering it in the way I never expected! The stories of our lives are never finished till God says so!!!

A little October beauty in my backyard!

Feel free to use this in your art work!!  
The beauty of the world around me never ceases to amaze me.God's creation is so perfect,beyond my imagination,every detail set in perfect harmony. This is the first day of my week away from my job and I need to be renewed.  I love my job, but it does take alot out of me to see the devastation this disease brings on families( Alzheimer's and other types of dementia). I have said goodbye to too many in the past few weeks and seen too many who are way to young to be afflicted. YET,I KNOW GOD IS IN CONTROL and He has the small details perfectly planned, I TRUST HIS LOVE completely. SO for this week of renewal, I am going to look for the beauty in all things, study His word, listen..AND REST!

Spread your wings

I have been working on this for awhile and have decided she is ready to show... used acrylics,old and new papers and a few stamped images...Love doing these ...

what resting brings

Have had a few days on my back, and only in my chair a little, but managed to finish a couple of creations. Also have been studying on REST in my bible..interesting ..Gods rest is a complete resting on and in Him..He has accomplished it all..I am to yoke myself to Him and look to Him for the next step..It does not mean to cease from action it means to trust Him leading..I CAN DO THAT! with HIS help! love it when he finally gets through to me.  and now the creations of my resting......

owie!

Have been recuperating form a horrific fall down a flight of concrete steps . Was holding my sweet 2 yr old nephew Jet and lost my balance. Held him tight to me and just took the fall..right on my forehead..wrenched my neck and back and now have two "purty as purple can be" ... BLACK eyes!! what a sight.
The blessed part is that Jet was fine ..not a scratch on him!..I am healing very wel l(lots of love and prayers! ) and hope to post some new work as soon as I can get back to my art table. Until then ... be safe!!

More Sunday play!!

ATC with the peeled paint technique.
PHASE ONE:To give it a really great contrast I used a purple glaze paint, crackle medium was then applied (DRIED) then white acrylic paint...I did not wait the entire 30 min  for it to dry ...I SPEEDED IT UP!!! with my handy heat gun....FUN! It ages right in front of you like an alien on a startrek episode...:)

PHASE TWO: I stamped the flower on white tissue paper then lightly colored it and set it on the peeled paint background with gel medium..then added stamped saying same way and little bumblebee to finish it off.....BZZZZZZZZZZZ

White on white with a dab of color...used mulberry paper for texture and a small piece of white paper that was run through the cuddle bug..added white millenary and ...Voila!!!OH and GLITTER!

Little Sunday creations!

 
Birdie nature tags with a touch of blue...sprayed them with a Klear-kote finish..love shiny things today!
