My Mixed Media Frenzy!!

I am soooo addicted!  I can't stop.  I am just loving doing mixed media.  Of course, I started with the She Art girls, but I am trying other things as well.  The flower one is inspired by the cover of this months Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine.  I just loved it, so it was something fun to try.  Don't make fun of my birds.  I had the hardest time trying to draw some decent ones.  Anywho, I just wanted to share my latest with you.  I have more She Art girls in the works as well.
 Oh, and then in my art class, we decided to ATCs to trade here in Houston for some ATC (Artist Trading Card - if you don't know what that stands for) event.  I haven't done those since I started scrapping.  This should be interesting.  I'll try to take photos of those as well.  We will see how much my style has changed since I did them four years ago.  You can see my old ones in ATC photos here on my blog.

Ok, My She Art Attempt Two!

This is the continuation of the canvas that I was making on my first She Art post.  My girl here is inspired by artist Julie Nutting.  I adore the colors in this one.  The match my scrap room perfectly.

A House Warming Gift

Just exploring some of my latest little hobbies - mixed media painting and a little beading (thanks to my niece Tay).  One of  my hubby's assistants  just bought a new house, so I made her these salad tongs.  And, instead of a card, I decided to make a little painting.  I thought I would share them with you.

My First SheArt Project!!


 Well here is my first "SheArt girl".  This was so much fun letting myself just freely create.  I used music paper for her face and body, but I think it looks like she has a funky face.  I think I'll use book paper next go around.  Below is the "start" of another mixed media project.  Just thought I'd share with you the process.  I did this in about an hour and a half by just adding layers of paint and stuff.  Anyway, hope you like!  Thanks for stopping by.
