I'm still at it

I'm still at it drawing Whimsy gals .. right now I'm concentrating on my shading.. sometimes it's too much and sometimes not enough.. or it looks ragged and not good at all. Last night I just got so frustrated I threw a perfectly good drawing out in the trash.. Anxiety got the better of me.. LOL

Here is one I just finished. I'm uncertain about her hair.. My camera takes awful pictures also. It doesn't look so washed out in person.

A Nutter Christmas Card

I have this goal of making at least one Christmas Card per day now.. My goal before this was that last summer I would start on my cards. That didn't pan out.. at all! LOL so now I have this one and so far so good..

The card also qualifies for the Simon Says Challenge this week of make a card with a Ticket.

This is one of Timmy's Stamps. I stamped and then distressed it and use Glossy Accents on it.

The snowflakes were Dry Embossed using my Vagabond Machine

I inked up the Embossing Plate and then ran it through..

I cheated from my One Card a Day and created this card.

Today at Crafting with OWSE Cindi had a great video on Warm and Cool Colors and using

Tim's Distress Inks

My Palette was of Cool Colors

I used the Snow Writer glue stick to make the snow.. How fun that was that and sprinkled

Diamond Dust on it while it was drying..

Again on this one I used a Texture Fade of Tim Holtz but this time I did not ink up the plate but

inked my Substrate instead..

I used the reindeer die from Tim Holtz but create the number 25 on my Cricut

using the program "Makes the Cut"

I love love that program..

A lot of Stickles and glitter were used on this card and it shimmers all the way!! LOL

I guess my family and friends are going to be getting all different cards this year.

I just can't get down an assembly line and work for hours on cards like I usually do..

sign of old age?? maybe.. but then it just might be a sign of Lazy.. ROFL!!

Hey!! Thanks for Looking!

19-21 is what I put on this Beeswax piece. Actually it's a piece of Tissue Paper and I put it on when I was doing some Layering with the tissue paper. I don't think it's appropriate but oh well.. LOL

I used Bees Wax, Tissue Tape, Film Strip Ribbon and the Background is painting with
Luminere Paint.

I created the flower from some Satin Material I had


Thanks for Looking!

Those Fabulous 70's

When I finished this Whimsy Gal with her wild hair I showed it to my DH (Duh Hubby, LOL) and he said it looked just like the 70's... I guess it does remind me of the 70's with all the Paisley Patterns. Remember the dress coordinating with the tights.. All Paisley.. omg did I look cool! ROFL!!

Tam over at Willowing did some Fabulous Whimsy Portraits of Gals with will hair and she set a challenge to do some with yup wild hair.. This is what I came up with.. Not so wild but pretty cool hair huh? LOL

I love Ballerina's .. Heck I love Dance.. I used to be many moons ago a professional dancer.. Ohhh those wonderful years of being on the stage. The adrenalin rush was fantastic!! Nowadays' it's all I can do to bend over and pick something up... Old age has hit this old gal!! LOL

anywho I felt like working in Bee's Wax this morning. I got up about midnight and set to work on this piece. It has been awhile since I worked with Bee's wax. I forgot how much I like it.

I used Fiero again on the piece. It's a rust colored Texture Paste that has teeny tiny glitter in it. I so love it. I ordered a different color and can't wait till it comes in so I can play!

It will be available at the shop soon!!

Altered Composition Book and an Art Journal Spread

Last night I was on a roll.. Not only did I finish one of my Whimsy Gals . I also finished an Art Journal Spread and altered a Composition Book. This book cost me a whopping quarter at Wally World (Walmart)..

I painted the Cover Black

and then with a Dry Brush brushed some white paint on

Let Dry and added the images.

I then added all that wonderful red Texture.. You should see it glimmer!

This Texture Paste called Fiorro has tiny pieces and I mean teeny tiny pieces of glitter in it.

It is made by Deco Art and yes it's in the shop

Doesn't this Gals Dress look Tie Dyed.. cool huh?

There must be at least 10 layers going on.

I just added and added layers to this Journal Spread..

Hey! Thanks for Looking!

Layout and a Wood Portrait

I created this Layout yesterday. I love loved this paper and wanted to keep my LO nice and simple. this is what I came up with

I had this piece of wood like forever.

I picked it up at Walmart for .99cents

This Morning I decided to see how it goes creating one of my gals on wood

The only thing when the paint dried there is no way to fix mistakes..

I had to seal the wood at first so the paint wouldn't just get sucked up by the wood.

Once I got my gal onto the wood I colored it with my Neo Color Crayons and worked it like
it was on paper. I'm not sure if I was suppose to or not.. duh and duh again!! LOL

I'm thinking of putting a layer of bees wax over it.

what cha think?

As Always thanks for Looking

Grungy Monday

Yesterday was Grungy Monday over at Linda's Studio L3.. She celebrates the Techniques of Tim Holtz. The challenge was to use Tim's Techniques on one of his Twelve Tags of Christmas. I believe it was 2009.

I created this Tag using some of Wendy Vecchi Stamps and the Techniques Tim showed

in his tutorial...

I used all Distress Inks, Snow Cap Paint Dabber and Archival Jet Black Ink

I stamped it and then stamped it again on a manilla piece of paper then cut out the crown

pop dotted it and put it over the original stamped image..

It really gave it some depth I think..

What a fun Tag this was to create and a nice break from Painting

my Whimsy Gals..

Speaking about Whimsy Gals I created this Gal yesterday

My Lousy Camera does her no justice at all

I put Diamond Dust in it all over so it glimmers and shines.

I also added tiny rhinestones

You can't even see it at all

Boo on my Lousy Camera. LOL

Hey you all! Thanks for looking

Pretty Eyes

I've been working on my Blending on the faces of my Whimsy Gals.. Not sure if I am even getting the picture but I keep going with them.. I have been incorporating them into my Journal Pages Lately.. This one is not a Journal Page. I bought a sheet of Hot Press Water Color paper to try and I used it on this gal.. She has pretty eyes no?

I sure would like some input from my Mentor Tamara Laporte

but being she is one week due to have her baby me thinks she has other things

on her mind. LOL

Life Book starts in January and I can't wait.

One whole year of making Art and learning about ourselves.

Tam has some great teachers lined up for the classes plus herself.

Did I say I can't wait for this Workshop to start!!!


Hey if you could leave some feedback on my Whimsy Gals I sure would appreciate it.

My Mojo has been gone. Totally wiped out. I couldn't create a thing. Finally today I drew this Whimsy gal and did an Art Journal Page. Whew, I thought my career as a wanna be artist was over! ROFL!!
