About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.


Wood Bead Art Dolls

So...been very excited to be signed up to take Laura Robberts Loverlee's wood bead art doll class at http://www.paperwhimsy.com.

The class started Saturday and I am off work today and was able to get started...I got as far as I can on the bodies for now. I am waiting for the omni gel to dry for the image transfers and will hopefully get to those tomorrow evening after work...

My awesome husband bought me a dremel on Sunday so I can use it as a drill, but we didn't get a cottel so I can't use the bits today...I will pick one up tomorrow. In the meantime, I decided to play with some beads and create a design for the blue dollies tiara. I need to get some more beads...hehe...
Can't wait to get everything put together and finish my first doll...the possibilities are endless and my mind is going crazy with ideas...

You can still sign up for the class, through March 2...it is awesome... http://www.paperwhimsy.com/classes/loverlees/index.html

Have a FaBuLoUs day


Beautiful Heart

I got called off work today because it's so slow from the weather...A day for nothing but art...I have been wanting this day...I started this journal page last week and new the direction I wanted to go so I have been working on it whenever I had time, and was finally able to get all the elements together and finish the page...I really love how it turned out.

I used a lot of modeling paste, inks, sprays...for the heart doors I applied modeling paste to plain card stock...I found a rusted metal background and printed that out onto the modeling paste card stock after it dried...then used my verdigris mist and a stencil to give it another dimension. Then ink and brads...I bought a Paper Studio brick embossing folder last week and used that along with ink, mists, and modeling paste...ripped and tore it until I had the shapes to piece together for the background.
I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by


Your Love Gives Me Wings

Art Joural Time

Finally made some time today to finish this page in my art journal.

Ive been doing a little here and there and just really wanted to add some dimension to it today and finish it up. So I added some molding paste then more layers of colors and the words just came naturally after I was done with the color. And of course there are butterflies. <3 br="">
Have a beautiful colorful day.
