The Madness Continues...

A few more water drops done, more details added to other ones...still tons more to accomplish.  Click on the image to get a closeup.



Day 3 of this craziness.  I even have to remind myself to take potty breaks I have been so enthralled in the painting.  The process is much slower then coloring with Copics.  I find I have conditioned myself to work in very small spaces with my Copics and its hard to think BIG.  I am using a very small brush as a large one seems lacking in control of color placement.  That's todays update...see you again in a few days with the current progress.

I have Gone MAD!

Yes, I have!  

 I just needed a break from coloring other peoples amazing images.  I just want to produce something other than a card.  Something big enough to put on my wall.  Like a mad scientist I swept all of my art supplies off my studio table (okay, my Copics were carefully set aside), with one swell-foop it was all gone!  Digging frantically into my art supplies paint drawer saw my acrylic paints and brushes.  I dusted off my Acrylic paints and brushes, my poor neglected art medium.  I grabbed an old canvas buried back in the back of my closet and prying the dried on lids off my paint, I created my color pallet.  My heart was racing...10 years since I have touched my poor little paint tubes.  I grabbed some old photos I had taken a few years back, taking a deep breath I was ready!!

Here is what I have accomplished on my painting of water drops on a poppy stem.  This will be one canvas of a series of 3.   I will show more as I complete another portion.




Painted with old acrylic paints..and loving it!  BTW getting old sucks...had to borrow the hubby's glasses so I could see...guess it is time to go get my eyes checked.

Sunflower and Mirror - New Release

Stampendous asked each of the Design Team to create something using a new image and this mirror from Ikea  I used the Jumbo Sunflower and created a fence.  I added pages from an old dictionary and antique lace.  I finished it off with mica fragments to make is shimmer.  I really enjoyed doing this project.  The sunflower is stamped on old Dictionary pages and then colored with Copics.  Here is a closeup.

Look for the Jumbo Sunflower at your local stores or you can order it from Stampendous HERE

Bonus Card

A little Alice...

Alicia has this adorable Alice in her store.  You can see some cute cards using these images on her blog HERE.  Thank you Alicia for letting me play with these delightful images



To my SweetFart


I thought this was the perfect Valentines day card for the sweetHeartfart!  It actually was a special request from a friend.  I do not normally color images more then a few times before I move on to something else...but this one was an exception.  I also LOVE the paper I used so in order to preserve it I used it on this card.  



DoodleDragon Studios is having a challenge on the blog so I thought this would be perfect for a valentines day card.  Yup, that is how I roll!!  Be sure and jump over and join in on the fun HERE.
If you are looking for this image it is in the April Members stuff in Doodledragonstudios.  Join the members and get about 30 images per month for a low low price!
