Watercolor Paintings

I painted a couple of flower paintings in my journal for my Lifebook class.  The flowers were painted with Twinkling H2O's which are very shimmery watercolor paints.  They are fun to use and I love the shimmer.  The colors are intense and beautiful too.  I painted the borders with Silks acrylic glaze which is also very shimmery paint.  I also added bits of gold paint to add extra shimmer.  If you ever have a chance to use these paints I would recommend them.

 I am still working on preparing for my daughter's open house, but we only have one more week and then I can create more.

Have a great weekend.

New Painting

I finished this mixed media painting last week and I taught this style of mixed media to a group of mostly teen girls.  It was fun teaching and seeing all that they came up with.  I am still busy with graduation preparations, but I also started a new painting in my journal.  I'll share that when it is done too.  For now have a great weekend.

    I started a mini gallery in my front room yesterday.  Now I need to get to painting so that I can fill more of my space.  These are all small paintings here.  I'm still getting ready for my graduate's open house and I thought that this would be a nice way to spruce up this wall.

New Pages

I have a few new pages to show off.  I haven't had as much time for art lately because of a busy time with my daughter graduating from high school.  Soon all the busy work will be over and I can get back to more art.  It is nice creating all these family memories though.  

This spread talks all about marriage and what I hope for my marriage.
Shimmery paint, string gel, black gesso, markers.
Stained glass window page.
Affirmation page.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my new pages and have a great month of May.

Another Bird

I just finished another painting.  This one has a mixed media background and another bird painted on top.  I also used part of a poem by Emily Dickinson that is one of my favorites.  
Have a wonderfully creative weekend.  I have been very busy with preparations for my daughter's birthday and her graduation from high school.  Later in the summer I will have more time for art.
