I did another lesson for my Radiant II class.  My art needs work but I was happy with some of the things happening here. I will be trying to draw and paint more mermaids!  You looks a lot in my photos because I love metallic and shimmer. You miss that in the photos.

Effy's "I am the storm" lesson

Here is my newest art journal lesson from Effy Wild's Radiant II class. Some of these lessons are really a challenge. I started this one and then covered it up ...started again. Plus, I was trying for someone who looked kind of dark. Obviously, she isn't dark but she is a pretty woman with intriguing eyes. I wonder what she is thinking. :)

Have a creative day!!

Card Class Cards from Last Fall

These are some of the card class cards from last fall. Most of the supplies are from Stampin Up. 

Lovely Christmas

I just loved this card. I think it is one of my most beautiful.  It may be wrong for me to say about my own work but I loved this one. The combination is just RIGHT! :)  The stamp is Stampin Up. 

Have a Creative Day!! 

Paint Night with my grandsons

We did a paint night with my daughter and grandsons.  Here are the works.  The boys were excited to paint on canvas. 

This first one is a large painting. My younger grandson Daniel did it. 

They even played with the easel. Here is Benjamin's painting. They both decided to do trees.
 This is my daughter Sarah's painting. She also did a tree. I think she did a lovely job. This is now hanging in my living room.  
And this is my painting. I obviously did not do a tree. It is good to practice. You can't get better without practice! 

Have a Creative Day!!  

Paper 3D Sea Turtle

I got this cut file on Silhouette.  I just had to see it put together. I gave it to a friend after we were in a meeting where they talked about the face sea turtles can't pull their head in like other turtles. When in danger, they have to run away ( and of course they have a hard shell). When facing change it is better if we put on a hard shell and keep going rather than hiding inside our shell

Love the file. I should do this again!!

This little bird is thinking of you!

These were done while I was in the hotel in Michigan. They were for a woman in class who lost her grandfather.  Parts of this were from a Stampin Up paper pumpkin kit. The bird is a Dina Wakley stamp.
