Increasing my ability

I just love to learn NEW Techniques

This week I have been playing with all kinda new products and some old ones.  

This one is a painting done with just PanPastels and just a little soft Pastels
it's far from perfect, but I had a lot of fun learn this new skill

NOW this one.  I just love the way it turned out. I plan on show this technique off on my Tuesday night show in about a week or so.  This one is made with Acrylic Paints. Charcoal, and Soft Pastels.

Thanks for stopping by

Birds of a feature

This Girls love her POWER tools..  Most of the power tools I use in my studio are from Proxxon - these are Mini Power tools with the power of the big guys, but they are perfect for the home studio. 

Here is the top of my mobile - I used stick from my yard. 
Use my crop saw to cut the sticks and then my Drill press to drill hole at the end of each stick  
Each bird was made different.  I start all of them with Music paper glued onto the chipboard.  then I just had fun, paint, Gelatos, Prima Flowers and real feathers

Thank you to Dreamwesver Stencils

As most of you know I have been the guest designer for Dreamweaver Stencil this whole month,  Today is my last post.  So far all of my post has been Canvas and I want to make something different, so today I make a Thank You card for Dreamweaver to say "Thanks for having me"

start off with a black paper.  Sorry about the glossyness, 
Added Golden Polmer Medium to my black cardstock and sprinkled the Metallic F/X onto the wet Plymer Medium (Gloss)  the reason it's glossy at this point.  Let that dry.  To make sure the Metallic F/X was not going to come off, I spray with a Workable Fixatif from Krylon

I had a Thank You stencil from Dreamweaver and embossing paste, but I need color, add a few drop of Florescent Orange to the embossing paste and mixed well.  Then I added my Thank You to my background. let dry

since my background is glossy and will not tke a photo well I add Gel Medium Matte on top of the whole background and let that dry.  While my Gel Medium was still wet I added my Die Cut leaves to the bottom

here is a close up of the background technique I used.  love this affect.  Here is the rest of the Dreamweaver Design Team.  Go by each of their blog and see what they did.
