We are Stardust


This dreamy mixed media painting is from a tutorial by Tamara Laporte.

I used Jane Davenport watercolors on Fabriano hot press watercolor paper for "We are Stardust." I used a Gelly Roll pen for highlights and some stars and Master's Touch metallic watercolors for shinny yellow stars.

I enjoyed working on this piece, as I always do working on a tutorial by Tamara Laporte!

Girl on Toned Paper


This girl came to be in my Strathmore Toned Sketch book, from a tutorial by Karen Campbell for Awesome Art School.

I used a mixture of Prismacolor Pencils,  Chinese Markers and Posca Pens to shade her. I did the details in her face and hair with Faber-Castell Pitt Pens and a white Gelly Roll Pen.

I'm really happy with how this girl came out and I will continue to look for more projects like her!

Woodland Mushrooms

 I painted this beautiful woodland mushroom scene from a tutorial by Diane Antone. I used Winsor Newton Cotman tube watercolors on a piece of Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. It will be a lovely addition to my greeting card collection.

How do I love thee?

I printed a script stamp over this page and then printed and colored some flower and butterfly stamps.

I added some small black dots and blue ones with liner pens.

Just a fun design leading to a small but lovely mini art journal page.

Join the challenge at Crafting from the Heart where anything goes!

Elf in the Wilderness

 I loved creating this profile in Copic Markers and look forward to working with these more often! This is Elf in the Wilderness from a tutorial by Karen Campbell for Awesome Art School.

I used Micron Pens for the outlines. This piece came together so nicely on Bristol paper.

Funky Mixed Media Portrait


Karen Campbell filmed this Funky Mixed Media Portrait for a tutorial on Youtube. She demonstrates how to use various supplies all in one piece of art. She refers to a picture taken from Pinterest.

 It was fun following Karen using Canson 140 lb. watercolor paper, Jane Davenport watercolors, assorted pens and Carand'ache Crayons. I don't have the green ink for a background, but the green crayon from the Carand'ach set works well blended with a wet brush.
