Playing with Inktense wc pencils today...


I sketched this out and used spray alcohol inks using paper to block out areas just for fun.  I then sketched over my sketch and then used Inktense wc pencils and a paint brush.  I don't feel it is finished quite yet but will leave it for now and get back to in another day.

WIP, I hated the old collage so much, I had to change it!


From the one above to the lower one...I am much happier with the change!  I just hated looking at the way it was.  I am so enjoying the many online classes I sign up for!  All the different techniques have slowly creeped into my being we are becoming one!  We are MELDING!  I have never enjoyed painting so much as I do now.  I see something I have done and like it or not I let it sit for awhile.  I remember I can always come back to it and change it,  knowing that takes the fear of painting out of the equation for me.  I also tell myself before starting anything that it is only paper and paint or whatever the medium I now remind myself I am in control!  I love that feeling/knowledge!  The newer one is my rendition of the many "Mother Mary" statue's that I have seen growing up in church, on paper, in books, wherever !

Finally finished a piece I have been working on...


This is in my 9" x 12" sketchbook.  I have been using my sketchbook more often. I love drawing and collaging faces.  This one is Portfolio Oil Pastels over a collaged and distressed background.  I did this in Strathmore's Mixed Media sketchbook/journal and it really takes a lot.  I like these Strathmore journals!  I used some stained teabags in this piece, I like what they add to collage!  Will have to make more tea!

I should be cleaning and organizing...but


I am still experimenting with tea bags.  I ran these through my printer at the same time I was holding my breath.  Oh yes, I forgot the prayer to the gods of printers that it would not jam my printer.  It worked...YAY!  Now on to more discovery and experimentation.

I have been playing with my teabag stash...

and having a wonderful time of it.


I think I may try to sell them in my Etsy shop.  I have waxed them and added old text as well as put them with backgrounds, either on plain watercolor paper or on hand painted wc paper.

The moment waits for you....

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I appreciate all of your visits and comments!
