Trading Art Cards

Good Morning and Happy Thursday. Jill Kuhn and I are trading art again.  We had such a good time last month with collage papers we decided to make six  6″ x 4″ trading cards. We both created some drawing, painting, patterns, collage, and Jill added some sewing.

Thank you Jill for joining in the fun. I’m so inspired by your creativity.

Watercolor Collage

Happy Monday!  On Saturday, I painted with watercolor and created a variety of patterns then cut up pieces to make a floral sun. I enjoy this art making  method because of the many surprises of mixing the different patterns  and shapes.

Healing the Soul with Art

Good Morning… For the past week, because of the fires in my community, we have not been able to leave our home but for picking up essentials at the market. My seven year old granddaughter and I have been playing lots of games and making art.

We decided to make our own collage papers. One thing we have an abundance of in our home is paper and lots of art supplies.

We painted on watercolor paper and then made photocopies for later use. We laughed a lot and inspired one another and thoroughly enjoyed each others company. Lasting fun memories through a difficult time.

Here is the beginning of some collage work.

Mosaics

I love making mosaics using random watercolor squares. Here are a couple from my Saturday art making. #worldwatercolormonth

Happy Sunday!

Size: 5″ x 6.5″ watercolor and watercolor pencils
mosaic squares are 1″ x 1″

Size:  6″ x 9″ watercolor,  mosaic squares 1″ x 1″.

The sky was patted dry with a paper towel and an added bonus the paper texture was left in the paint.

Mixed Media

Good Morning…. today’s offering is another mixed media collage using magazines, tissue paper, watercolor, colored pencil and the Procreate app. I can never get enough cutting and pasting.

Have a creative day!

Letter C and Misc.

Good Morning – on to letter of my Alphabet Art Journal. Also, I’m working on a miscallaneous art journal combining art that I’ve already made.  I’ve just about completed this journal. I’m going to add a few pockets and fold outs for some surprises. Have a happy day!
