Be Kind To You

Pencil sketch watercolored with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks and colored pencils. I cut leaves from a gel plate print and glued them onto the branches. The sentiment is from Dina’s collage words. I used a Posca pen to redraw the lines of the sketch and created the border with Dina’s washi tape.

Heart’s Delight

The music sheet title from the background collage started the inspiration for this creation, as well as a childhood photo I keep in my studio that always makes me smile.

What’s Your Story?

Pencil and water soluble graphite sketch on a gessoed page in my giant moleskine sketchbook.  I used  Dina Wakley media collage tissue, Scribble Sticks in Umber and Elephant and Umber acrylic paint.

Do Not Feed the Fears

This seemed an appropriate sentiment for the big fearful look in her eyes. Some journaling about overcomimg fears and daring to see what happens. Inspired by Dina Wakley’s new product releases at Creativation trade show in Arizona.  From her products, I used washi tapes, collage tissue and paints: Turquoise, Magenta and Night.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Tonight’s painty doodle play. Needed some bright colors on this very cold snowy/sleety yucky day. Tissue collage background with acrylic paint, stenciling and stamping. Doodled flowers with Stabilo All pencil and Posca pens.bloom

But First Coffee

But First Coffee. Inspired by the quote on my sweetener packet this morning. You never know where inspiration will come from! First I sketched my girl in pencil, then collaged the coffee cup image with matte medium, covering the entire page to seal it. I used Faber Castell Pitt pens to color and shade and a black Posca pen to outline and highlight.

Blessed

Nothing like a painty fun filled play date with friends to warm up a cold winter day.

What Lies Beneath

 

Looking inside to expose the shadows, doubts and fears to bring them to the light and find peace and forgiveness. I had painted this face some months ago with watercolor markers but hated how the hair came out. I almost threw her out but stuck it in the back of my journal until I came across her the other day. I decided to cut off her hair and then the idea came to tuck her behind the burlap page I painted. I cut open the burlap and tucked it back and sewed it open. It fits my reflective mood and my word for the year of “Freedom”.
