Hand-Painted Background

This card was for my Aunt who is ill. The background is hand-painted using a Gelli-Plate with acrylic inks and leaves from my yard. It's a mono printing technique...



Another Recent Project

A card for a friend's birthday.
Watercolor with a black fine-point Sharpie and 
Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen. 
I LOVE that pen! It's one of my new favorite craft tools.



It's been a long time!

So I thought I would start out with something I made recently. The idea an design came from someone on YouTube (sorry I can recall her name). This was a great project. I made a dozen of these adorable little cups for a brunch my co-worker was hosting. Enjoy!

Another Christmas 2014 Card


I saw this idea online and thought "That's adorable!
I have to use this idea!" I added the scarf. So fun!

Christmas 2014

So, I was deathly ill this year, well maybe not "deathly", but certainly very sick, so I went with a very simple card. Please forgive the rough edges and slightly askew alignment. 
I loved the way the new snowflake punch worked out! 
I will get a lot of use out of this punch. Enjoy!

New "Envelope" Gift Card Holder


  

I found a tutorial last night on this cute little gift card holder. It was easy and a pretty quick project.
The base is a standard card envelope folded in half. 

I loved the idea of the Brad and baker's twine closure!

Pink Happy Birthday

Just another birthday card...this time using a technique called "Fork Bows". You run ribbon through the tines of a fork and tie a knot and voila - a nearly perfect bow.

More in-flight work



THese are both watercolor pencils and a waterpen for blending with black sharpie and touches of white paint pen.

In-flight Journal Page


Talk about simple. I used brush markers to do the colored blocks in the background, then drew the face with a black sharpie and colored in the empty space next to the head. Then I added some bits of white paint pen. Amazing what you can do while on a flight!

Colorful Journal Page


This page started with three solid acrylic inks, then stamped over with bubblewrap in the same three colors. Next I drew the face and the hair, I colored in the empty space to the left of the head with pink (something new for me) and decided it was too bland so I added the lines and doodling. I used the back end of a paint brush to add the dots.
