1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Altered Wine Cork Ornaments on: March 14, 2014 05:09:16 AM
I created these three ornaments for my partner in my Altered Wine Cork Ornaments swap recently!  I had been wanting to do this for some time and had a great time making them and loved the ones I received in return.

Maybe in the future there will be more participants in round two, we did okay for our first run though with 8 participants!  Let me know what you think!

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fundraiser Donation on: February 09, 2014 05:37:44 AM
I created this 24x30 inch canvas acrylic painting to help support a local family whose house burned down last week.  I am hoping it can garner more money than what I could donate out of pocket.  While it is not accurate, it is inspired by a photograph of Denali overlooking Wonder Lake In Denali National Park... others Outside refer to it as Mt. McKinley. (we call the Lower 48 Outside) So here you are....drum roll please...

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 1st time making Homemade xmas cards on: December 19, 2013 01:59:33 PM
Warning IMAGE Heavy

I decided to make my own cards this year for the first time.  I made them out of a watercolor pad I got with a watercolor set at the thrift store.  Next year I will buy premade ones!  I made envelopes out of magazine pages to send them in.  Every one is different, some were inspired by you tube videos (the pine branch, lights and the ornaments) and others were just in my head.  I would like to find an image I am very happy with and try printing some next year.  I really love some of these, others are just plain, and some I like... lol.  My cousin Bradley832 said it was pretty ambitious, and I guess it was... so many different cards!  I hope you like, and I love comments on what you think!
watercolor, paint pens, white gel pen, black ink, paper pieces, stamping and embossing.
