A bit of Doodling...

After watching Christy's post a few weeks ago, I couldn't get it out of my head!  I HAD to give it a try!  Its not at all what I expected...not as soft as hers, but I still like it :)

All in all, it took about 3-4 hours...I began with a coat of gesso, then once it dried I used permanent pen to doodle my design.  Once that set, I then used my watercolor crayons to get the base color, with shadowing with my Pitt Pens.  I used a fixative to make sure the watercolor didn't react with my Modpodge....added a few stamps and textured!  It was so relaxing!  Dave noticed I was "in the zone" and let me be for the ENTIRE process!  (He is such a  keeper!)

Mixed Media Monster Flower!

Here is the Mixed Media Flower I created on the monster canvas I mentioned a few posts ago!  Its a whopping 22x30!

Check out the experiment with the modeling paste...I grabbed the top of my Basic Grey Precision File Set to add the circles! Its quite handy with that little handle :)

Thanks for taking a peek!

Loving Mixed Media....

Hi Folks!
Just thought I'd pop in and post a few things I've been working on this Christmas time!  Thankfully my family doesn't read my blog much hehe

These are all 8x8, and I have to say I think this is my favorite size to work with!  I made a big monster of a flower a few weeks ago (22x30) and I think it was just too much space for me right now.  I have more super large canvas', but I'll save those until I find my "style" with the smaller ones.  At the moment, I'm sticking within the "She Art" comfort zone (Thanks Christy Tomlinson!!!)

Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas!
