It all about the color.....

Hey welcome to  my blog
I am in a great mood today
its all about going with a good friend and getting our feet pampered
a little art and ikea shopping
Chinese food tops off the evening, and not all with the same friend
don't you love it when the day totally works out great
So I guess today the diet gets the back bench because
who can eat Chinese food and stay on a diet
this little peek of my art is an old one but one of my favourites
so since I am in charge of me and my blog, you get to see some oldies but goodies
what are you doing that is fun today, and if your not go out and do something

Do you think that Blogs are dying, now that people post
on Instagram and Facebook,?

A tut for you....

This one is going into illustration Friday its all about Windows there.  I love this technique and have made many like this, so I thought I would share.  First you get whatever size of substrate you want to create on, this is postcard size.  Then what I did
was draw, and paint, on it, then on top of that I cut out a piece of tracing paper, or some kind of paper you can see thru, my old mind cant think of the name of the paper and put it on top of your design, then
drew on that and  painted, or markers or what ever you want to use, sometimes I
used my sewing machine around the edges, sometimes tape, whatever you have on hand.  I cant remember where I saw this done, or I would credit the person with it.

collage questions

This is an oldie but goodie but it was one of my I have a soft spot in my heart for it.
When making a collage I do have a hard time.  I always think it has to tell some kind of story be cohesive.  When you make a collage does anything block your process,enquiring minds want to know
