I love getting snail mail, don’t you? Not bills or flyers – I mean something addressed to me in someone’s handwriting, with stickers or colourful embellishments to grab my attention. And if that envelope is just the wee bit on the chubby side… well, who knows what goodies await?! Just such an envelope was waiting for me last week. Excitement! Inspired to reciprocate, I pulled out my watercolours to finish creating a tag I’d started on another project. Here’s how it turned out. Have you every tried painting with watercolour? Let me know what you think! Advertisements
If you’re looking for a smaller project, creating tags is a great option. Smaller in scale than an art journal or canvas, the techniques can be applied to any paper substrate. Here I use distress inks in various ways, ink sprays, mediums, stamps and perfect pearls to achieve eye catching, shiny tags. The finished tag. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the new opening for my youtube videos!
I made this canvas for a family member for Christmas. Happy to say he loved it! I’m lying low for the holidays, so no more posts from me until January. Well, maybe one. I do have a Design Memory Craft post coming out next week! Need a rest and time to create more art to share. Merry Christmas to you!
What on earth am I creating? Well, I’m glad you asked! Head on over to the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog to see the finished project! And please, leave a comment if you can! Click HERE for a list of the supplies I used. xo, seena
I’ve been lucky enough to participate in Jane Davenport’s and Teesha Moore‘s Mermaid Circus online workshop where we create, of course, mermaids! I want to share with you a couple of the many mermaids I’ve been working on. These pages aren’t quite finished as I find myself working on several pages at once, rather than completing a page before moving on to the next one. While there’s a lot of mixed media in this class, these pages emphasize collage work. Let me tell you, I am LOVING collage! I have found the Tombow MONO Adhesive runner to be an invaluable tool. If you aren’t familiar with it yet, it’s basically double-sided tape on a runner. It’s quick and easy to use and allows you to avoid the bumps of glue from a stick and the drying time of a wet medium. Bonus: these are refillable, which cuts down on the replacement cost. I keep several refills around to keep the creative flow going! I hope you get inspired to create your own collage. I’d love to see it. Leave me …
It’s Friday! Here’s what I’m working on now: Click HERE for a list of the supplies I used. xo, seena
