Week 6 Prompt: Window

For this week’s prompt, think windows of opportunity, the view from your window, beautiful stained glass windows, quotes about windows – whatever resonates the most with you. You can paint, doodle, draw, collage – or a combination of all of the above – whatever you are most comfortable with!

this one was different it was a start of a winter photo taken by one of my sons and I printed it in black and white . then used my water color pens and white out for snow and water colors for my raccoon, layered the windows wit double sided sticky tape to give it the depth. and added plastic from projector sheet for window..  its so cold out and stormy the poor raccoon’s looking for pietie marshmallows for his HOT cocoa… {from running Scared….. Mama. Mama! Out here! Hey, Gonzales. ….. Can I have some more petite marshmallows in my hot cocoa?

Its all I could think of ….LOL…………………….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I finished another journal page , I wasn’t sure about adding it to the Journal52  Faceboook group , but decided to add it..  .And  Wow was surprised at how many comments I got there, And likes. I am thinking no one reads blogs any more that facebook is where everyone is now a days. but I am keeping this account , I am too old to learn any more new ways. LOL… Hopefully I can get more people back to my blog so I don’t need to link and chase.. I am using TLC CREATIONS  I love the freebies and so happy I get to use them.. Thank her whenever you can.. they are wonderful…

This piece of art was a lot of fun I finally got some new Dylusion’s INK SPRAYS!!!!! I love Christmas money… LOL… anyways I used the words quote from tlc , my new sprays,magic marker {black} for the stars, and then Crystal lacquer.. OH I DO LOVE THAT STUFF!!!

And HERE it is…………What do you think???????????

Mix media art journal for my Grand daughter

She is always looking threw my art journals and telling me she loves them. She is a very talented young girl , and loves to paint, watercolor, draw , So I am surprising her with her own art journal to do with as she likes…..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

making Stencils for mix media art…..

I have made some stencils for glass etchings and different types of stencils for projects using different items, Plastic coating for furniture covers, it was really hard to  cut in small areas but great for a silhouette, and for etchings or paper stencil. Also used heavy card stock and then coated it with crystal lacquer, works real well , that’s in a later blog that works with Cricut …….  So now the stencils results for Vinyl  contact paper its real hard to get it to cut and do the corners or peak cuts but if you take your time and re cut it does work.The good thing is contact paper is large enough to cover all at once.

now when using a magazine photo , I really love this idea of USING package tape. tape your photo right over the picture you want then cut out the details, This is a favorite right now, lov this idea. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Using water Color tubes in place of GELATOs

Wanted to play along online with some artist but I had not gotten my hands on Gelatos YET… LOL so went for the next best thing I have on hand….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI bought these a while back at the Christmas tree for $2.99 good deal, LOVE THESE wonderful colors……….. First thing was doing a photo transfer on one of the double page journal.I spread my Gesso medium on the page not to thick, then put the photo I printed on my computer{ I use Kodak Printing paper for my photos}now I needed to burnish the photo down real well so there’s no air bubbles..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used my fingers then a bone folder to make sure. I had a few mishaps .. But redid it and let it dry over night.

Now spray the photo with water bottle so its good and wet, nor rub the layers of paper off. Keep wetting as you go The paper will roll up and reveal your photo, so pretty…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I chose red, yellow, and orange. added the colors with my fingers and smeared on the paper, then in water  and spread out till I liked the color strength..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALove playing in paints with my fingers.. If the colors to dark just use a wet paper towel and dab it it will lighten the color for you. spray more water and dab again if you want it even lighter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARepeat  with other colors you can even blend them in to each other.

next I added some texture I wanted it to dry fast… then I used more Gesso just a tiny bit smeared and took newspaper and made a print transfer with it same as the photo only take of while still wet.   And then used my stencils with some Gesso on my fingers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext step I cut three hearts out of gift wrap paper glued them down , then stamped butterflys all around the edges.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen highlighted the bee and butterfly with black ink and a stencil brush. Also added Dragon Flies and a lady bug with my stipple brush and stencil.

my {SHE} girl art

a few years back it was called she art and they were mostly done with blank faces and no arms showing so it was easy to draw. no feet or some of them  just had a long dress. Well any ways they are back in again.  But now its girl art..    what ever face no face they sure are fun to make and there’s so many books on this art and Artist are all ove rare making with them, so here’s my spin , might as well add me to the list.. haha..She art girl.

haunted house with spirits

I just couldn’t wait for my new Cricut cartridge so I started my card with out it.  I made my house by drawing over and over again and trying to size it just right.   I use bright Brilliance   inks for the back ground added by using a sponge. and dabbing , then I stippeled and added black ink . To blend the colors I used a baby wipe, works great….  rubbing slightly so it doesn’t tear or mark your paper .  Boo was made by Cricut {Plaintin school book cartridge} Added a personal touch by adding my grandchildren’s photos in the windows.

 I made the black button with polymer clay , easy tip for making these spray mist a water bottle cap with water, then push into clay . round a little ball and stick it to the clay in the cap pull up and it should come up easy… bake to clay package directions.
