Collage and The Terrible, No Good Art Block

Hello again! I’m back for Glue it Tuesday with a collage that’s been coming together on my desk for the past couple of weeks. I took the cover of one of our weekly newspapers and have been cutting all of the solid bits out of it and sticking a few pieces down here and there. […]

Daily Pattern Challenge (WOYWW)

Last month’s daily pattern challenge turned out to be not so daily. I don’t think I made it beyond the second week. I was trying to make all of my patterns out of stencils, and it wasn’t working for me. I should have switched over to using something else to create my patterns, but instead […]

Sketchbook: Paper Weaving

Aimee at Artsyville has started a new Tuesday prompt called Glue it Tuesday! When she announced it last week I was super excited because it’s been a long while since I’ve done any collage work.

Daily Pattern Challenge: December Days 1-4

Oh, hello! It’s been awhile. I have started a new December daily pattern challenge. I’m working in a Moleskine Pocket Watercolor Book. On the odd days, I am putting down two rectangles of watercolor paint, and then I am drawing over one a day with (my very favorite!!) Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. I decided to […]

List it Tuesday: Been There, Done That

The List it Tuesday topic at Artsyville this week is Been There, Done That. I love this topic, and had fun thinking back over the fun things I’ve done over the years. Most of the big ones related to travel, which reinforced for me where my heart is at. Click the image to see the […]
