Carmen Mixed Media


              I Made this piece using a photo I found on Pinterest of Carmen Dell'Orefice. 
I wanted to make something for my friend for Christmas. 
Hopefully she likes it. I used Acrylics, chalks and rubber stamps from Penny Black.
Merry Christmas!

I scanned some of my old watch dials and thought I would share. I am making ornaments and magnets with them. They are great for all sorts of mixed media and craft projects.
Have a nice day!

Time Wasted Journal Page

More Journal pages

Here is one of the journal pages I made for my swap partner. I used four Penny Black stamps. Also alot of paint, colored pencils, chalk, some crackle and Mica fragments. I am not great at thinking up things to write so I used a rubber stamp sentiment. I am not sure it really goes with the page. I hope she likes it anyways!
Have a nice day.

More Journal pages

Here is one more layout I started for my journal swap. I left it unfinished so my partner/s could add to it if they wanted. Can't wait to see what they do!
Have a nice day!!

Journal Exchange

I thought I would post some pics of my first finished journal page. I joined a journal swap group. I love being able to share art with other artists. 
I used water colors, chalks, tattered angels, Penny Black rubber stamps, photos, clip art, glitter and rhinestones. Probably other stuff I can't remember!
Thanks for stopping by!

Penny Black Pinterest COLOR Challenge

I made this card for the Pinterest color challenge on the Penny Black blog.  

I stamped the flowers with versafine black and embossed with clear EP. I stamped the leaves with the cement versacolor. On a separate piece of paper I stamped the flowers and butterfly again then embossed and watercolored. I cut them out, curled the petals and wing around my finger then added them to the first stamped image. I then wrapped silver thread around the bottom. 
On the background I stamped the wood grain with versamark. I used a silver Krylon pen to make the splatters on the background. Assemble the card then add glitter and glossy accents to the centers of the flowers. Then add rhinestones to the thread. 
The silver wire pieces are ornament hangers I bought at the dollar tree.

Be sure to stop by the Penny Black Bog and see all of the other challenge cards!
Have a nice day!

I was looking at Terra Sheridan's blog yesterday to see her new painting and decided to get out my paints. Her work is so inspiring to me. She does alot of mixed media in her work.
For this painting I used some Penny Black embossed papers for texture underneath and also the photo above. I used golden acrylic paints. She looks a little like a vampire to me and her hair is really big but it was still fun.
Thanks for stopping by!

I found two more dressers to fix up. I think I am going to try putting wall paper on the drawer fronts. I have never used wall paper before so I hope it's not to hard! I will post whenI finish one. Thanks for stopping by!

Yard Sale Finds

Well I would say today was a pretty successful sale day. I got everything in the pictures for under $75! My favorite is the wash stand.
Just a light cleaning and they will be ready for the shop. I may have to hit one of them again tomorrow.
Thanks for looking!

ATC Break

I took a little break today and made this ATC. I used colored pencils on cardstock. I was trying to draw Gladys Cooper but it came out alot more cartoony. I think it turned out alright though. I love coloring with pencils so it was fun.
Have a nice day!
