Just Because

20190103_145130

Whimsical face just because it was fun to do and it’s cold and sleety outside! Started with a napkin collage on kraft page in my large Dina Wakley Media journal. Then scraped on my new favorite paint – Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold by Golden.  Add some black and red Stabilo All pencil, white charcoal pencil and here she is.

Word for the Year – Freedom

20190101_173445.jpg

My word for the year always seems to come to me sometime before the previous year ends. I am hoping it’s all good, as in freedom of expression in my creativity and freedom from past regrets and the ability to move forward and so on and so on. But, I’m a little wary, as last year’s word was Change. There were a lot of changes last year. Some bad, like losing my mom early in the year. Some good, like gaining more confidence in drawing faces (100 day challenge) and losing a ton of weight. Guess I’ll have to wait and see what this year brings! Happy New Year everyone. Hope you have a great one!

Tranquil Tuesday with Jane – Final Magenta Design Team Post

Fond Farewell.

Magenta Final

It is with mixed emotions that I say goodbye to my Magenta family. I am sad to leave, for when I joined the Design Team, it truly was a dream come true. It has been an invaluable and thrilling experience. But, the time has come to pursue other dreams, and I am excited to be able devote more time to those passions. I wish everyone at Magenta, and all of you, the happiest of holidays and all the best the future holds.

Season’s Greetings! I hope my card helps to get you in the mood for all the festivities ahead.

Magenta 12-4-18

I applied translucent embossing paste through the Leafy Wreath stencil onto watercolor paper. When dry, I added Distress Oxide Inks in Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint and spritzed with water. I stamped portions of the Old Script stamp in several areas on the card with Fern Green Archival Ink as well as inking the edges with it. I traced 2 sizes of the Bow Shapes stencil onto red cardstock, cut them out, shaped and stacked them on the card and applied some flat-backed pearls.

The background of this tag I created with Nuance powders, reflects the definite chill in the air, here in the north woods of Connecticut.
