Inspiration Wednesday - Week 11

I love the final results from this weeks project, and it was so easy.

I finally got to use the Gelatos that have been in my stash for months. They are great to work with.  After blending them with white paint I added more color and used my finger to blend the extra color into the existing colors.

The disadvantage of being able to get done in one afternoon is that it's going to be long 2 weeks until the next Inspiration Wednesday

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 10

I must admit I was not looking forward to this project.  It was collaging, and I am not a collage kind of person.  I admire them, but when it comes to making one I'm never happy with the results.

This time I did like the results.  I think it's because it reminded me of the chaotic week I had just been through. Hence the words, "My art reflects my journey."

Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 - May

In my spare time I am a volunteer with the Arc Circle of Family and Friends.  Our group provides activities for special needs adults. Some of the activities we provide throughout the year are bowling and softball leagues, monthly  dances, and various day trips.  One of the adults I have come to know is Penny.

Penny lives independently in an apartment, has had a part time job at the local Shop Rite for the past 20 years, and has a social live most of us would envy. She sees everyday as an adventure and lives her life to the fullest. We could all learn from her.

When Tim used his photo booth pictures for this months tag I chose to use a  picture of Penny.  I used the word brave because Penny is one of the bravest people I know.

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 9

This week was my first attempt at using watercolors. Since it was the first layer of the project anything I wasn't happy with could be covered up, so that took the pressure off.  Surprise! I was actually happy with how it turned out. Good thing because this weeks layers allowed the background to show through.

Here's to another brown hole page. Can't wait till week 10!
