Art Room Playtime

I haven’t had a lot of time to spend with my paints and pastels. I have classes already paid for and lined up to begin, but I have writing to do that has to be my first priority.

So, what …

More Mini Journal Pages

Well, I finished it. The entire book is cute. Not a great work of art or anything, but proof it’s possible to work in such a small form. I’m going to do it again. Not too soon, but I loved …

Mini Journal Class

I took a little art class online (#bybun on Instagram) to learn how to make mini art journals and fill the pages. I still have three more “spreads” to complete, but I thought I’d share. They begin with …

#100dayproject — Day 95

A quick-ish watercolor. The tabletop was boring, so I added a little doodle. I think I need to finish the challenge and take a rest, because I’m burning out…

Day 52

I’m well over the hump! 48 days to go! I love this challenge! This piece includes a strip of art paper in the center that I love. Then I watercolored the other two strips and doodled with gold …

#100dayproject — Day 19

Day 19

This is a bookmark made from stamps, bits of fabric and recycled paper scraps…

And it’s made from Day 14’s messy results. Terrible by itself, but pretty when you cut it up! 🙂

#100dayproject — Days 7 thru 11

Due to a power outage, I’m behind posting my new project pieces. See what I’ve been doing!

Day 7

I think this one’s my favorite so far. I love simple watercolor blocks filled with doodles!

Day 8

I don’t know …

#100dayproject — Day 6

Okay, so this is made of mistakes. Lesson: Nothing is ever wasted with a crafter!

So, I painted two things last night, and I hated both! I trashed one altogether, but I cut up the other into bits I could …
