The world will soon be ready to receive your talents
I have been experimenting with doing rubbings, and on this background you see a plethora of different samplings I did.  I used several embossing folders, some plastic templates from Ten Seconds Studio, and stencils.  I used sketch pencils size H or HB. When...

Flight on a teabag
After embossing Tim Holtz's wing onto a teabag, I randomly dry brushed white paint around and over the wings.  Then I used my Iced Spruce Distress marker to highlight around the perimeter.   Sometimes I think I single handedly made Mr. Holtz a millionaire ;...

Teabag Bunny; Sketching Optional
I sketched this guy on an unfolded 5 1/2 x 3 1/2" teabag.  He ended up here:  Do you have to sketch on your teabags?  Abso not!!  There are only a million ways to do art with a teabag.  You will learn a few in my Art and Soul  class in May.  Hope to see ya ...

More Small Things
  More 'quadrants of composition' from my Small Things Close art journal.    In a closeup view of one of the squares, there appears to be a tiny image that looks like a statue, maybe on a cliff, against a golden sky.  Just a smattering of paint and a serend...

More orbs, etc.
Yes, more orbs.  They occur in almost all my art.  The shaded ones on the right side were punched out of an old book, and the sepia tones are natural.  Then I played with positive and negative space.   The top two black patterned elements are a technique I ...

On My Winter Walk 2016
At this time, with Spring coming and the Earth warming up, I bid adieu to Winter with this picture I snapped on one of my walks.  I love winter and how it transforms our landscapes here in the Midwest.

Encaustic and a cheese wax heart
Okay.  Remember when I confessed that I save and use the red wax from Bonbel cheese and used it for this project:  Well, I pulled more out from my stash and formed a wee heart.  I then gathered straw (from an old broom) and wrapped it with red thread.  A si...

Just a quick silly piece that was inspired from one of the quotes on a tea bag tab.  The full quote is "You have to go crazy and be crazy.  Craziness is like heaven" ~Jimi Hendrix Love it!

Teabag Sketching for Art and Soul
The background for this page was made by painting watercolor paper with a layer of black India Ink.  Then I used White Linen spray over a stencil.  The effect was shadowy and grungy and yummy.  The strip down the left is black card stock that I stamped with...

Small things pink
How and why are these things made?  I try things and experiment with 'what if, and reinvent the wheel constantly in my art room.  Then I have a lot of arty debris on my work table and I get another 'what if' feeling and move things around and combine them u...

Orbs
I love orbs.  This is also in my Small Things Close journal, but in a different format.  I hardly ever plan exactly how something will turn out.  I shaded two circles on paper, cut them out and stacked them.  Very minimalist, n'est-ce pas?

Small Things Close, part deux
 Also from my newest journal is this page.  No rhyme or reason here; just liked the colors. I make art everyday, so something is always brewing in that art room of mine.
