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.

My first Creative Inspirations Paint Design Team Project

So thankful and excited to be a part of the Creative Inspirations Design team and very excited to use these amazing paints.

If you know me at all, you know I am all about color. I love having so many different color choices with these amazing paints. They are awesome to work with and blend so great. The shimmer factor is amazing.

I did this project on the back side of a canvas because I wanted dimension.















The background is done on my Gelli Plate using Royal Blue, Aqua Marine, Turquoise, and Plum.

I placed a stencil over that after it dried and used Buttercup and Pumpkin for the swirlies. I used a dry stipple brush to apply the paints with the stencil. I outlined the swirls with a black ball point pen.

On the flowers, I used Plum, Aqua Marine, Fuchia, and Evergreen. I also used the crystals in the center of the flowers. I also used the crystals on the Tim Holtz ornate frame.




On the leaves, I used Evergreen, Buttercup, Fuchia, and Pumpkin. 
The outside of the frame was painted with Sapphire.



















For the bricks I used a brick stencil and Liquitex Coarse Texture Gel. I mixed Burnt Clay, Chocolate, and some Garnet into the texture gel before applying it to the frame. These colors stayed true and shimmery even with the blending of the texture gel...Amazing!!!! I then just used my finger to add depth and highlites with the Garnet, and some white gesso after the texture paste dried.



The butterfly was a print out that I cut into 4 individual wings. I printed it out on white heavy cardstock then filled in the outline. I used Garnet, Fuchia, Pumpkin, Buttercup, and Onyx. I used a white signo pen for the white dots and highlites on the butterfly.















Here are the paints I used...




 I hope this project inspires you and serves as a reminder that There is Always Something to be Thankful For.
