100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project is beginning again.  I participated last year and I was really pleased I managed to see it thru to the end.  This year my 100 Day Project will be drawing and/or painting for 100 days.  Some people like to get more specific but I find I do better keeping it less specific its more about me doing something each day for 100 days!

I'm A Crafty Girl, Are You?

Love this except it wouldn't be a glue gun, 
but probably 527 adhesive (no affiliation) I use so often!

Fabric Patches and Canvas Postcards

Long time no blog Peeps!
I was feeling burnt out, and took some time off to just be and create. I'm feeling like I'm wanting to share my art again  :-)

Here's what I've been doing recently:
  • Finished a fabric patch swap.  Below are my patches.  If you haven't participated in a art swap I highly recommend finding a group and giving it a try...if you google art swaps there are sites that have sign ups.  I've been lucky enough to belong to a group of  ladies that I've known and trusted for a long while.

  • I've also been creating one of a kind  mixed media canvas postcards using my whimsical drawings.  Here are the ones I have left for sale in my Etsy shop.  I have several made to order postcards I'm working on right now.

Happy Valentine's Day

Here's  a couple of valentine's I made our grandsons
I used the Sizzix Owl Die. Instead of the wings 
it punched out, I used aluminium tape stuck to 
card stock.  I then free hand cut a heart
 then cut the heart in half for each of the wings.

I cut a plain black owl for the back and glued 
the pieces front and back to a box of
conversation hearts.

A Little Eye Candy...

Home is Where The Heart Is
I'm enamoured with  kitschy vintage campers
that a lot of women are fixing up and taking
Glamping.  In honor of, wishing I had one
of my very own, I decided to do some camper
 art instead :-)

I've created a few more Chunkyville houses to 
go with my other ones HERE.

And last but not least is my
finished chalkboard globe.
I've had a strong desire to alter
a world globe for awhile now
I have several I've picked up 
at garage sales, so I finally just
plunged in and spray painted the
globe with spray gesso and then a 
couple of coats of chalkboard paint.
The base of the globe and the arm I covered 
with some leftover art papers from my
