Happy Day 4 of #thedailymarker30day by @kathyrac! 😊 Syd, the Biggest Sweetheart, gave me another set of #kenolivercolorbursts powders for Mom’s Day! So very good to me! 🤗 More #altenew #buildafloweranemone and just one layer of color. Pow. Even on one of those “bad” heat-embossing days, it’s all good. 😊 Here’s to a beautiful day! #thankful #thoughtfulgift #watercoloring #archescoldpress #lostincoloring
Happy Day 3 of #thedailymarker30day! I recently won an @altenew giveaway store credit & used it toward this awesome #buildafloweranemone set. I may not tire of all the ways to color it. So fun, but still perfecting layering stamps. #distressinkwatercoloring #stamplayering #thankfulandblessed #altenew

Hi! It’s been many years since I’ve attempted to draw something. Not sure why, but it took courage! Recently, I started a #kitandclowder colored pencil class, Fairy Pencils. After watching Alyce’s first few lessons, I drew a branch! I’m stoked to improve my colored pencil skills, my medium of choice. But, especially excited to get comfortable again with drawing. Also, I worked a fun sky using Alyce’s techniques. Not so burnished & polished, but I like the texture, too. The scribbly bird, stamped from a Ranger Dina Wakley Little Birdies set, will be colored soon. For now, stretching, or branching out, feels good! Happy Day to You!
May your day be filled with what you simply enjoy. 😊🎨🌈 💚
Sending warm wishes your way.
It’s been a while since my last post. The last quarter of a year has been a rough journey. I watched one very close to me fight so hard during those months to overcome illness. She is now at peace.
It was not uncommon through these months for me to be sat in her hospital room, coloring images I’d pre-stamped. There were nights, ink blending at my desk, I’d look up and realize it was 2am. While not Art Journaling, it was such an outlet for my grief. Lately, I come across pieces I don’t much recall making. I was surprised by the large stack of these emboss-resist one-layer cards. First, thanks for stopping by. ♥️ Lastly, here are a few of the many cards made in a flurry of masking, stamping, heat embossing, ink blending, flicking (images & sentiments #heroarts):
I recently won an IG giveaway by @craftee1, Amy (http://tsurutadesigns.blogspot.com). Thanks, Amy! So, I had great fun with Amy’s generous goodies — the #altenew “Coffee Ring” stamp set and the #spectrumaqua Nature markers! Watercoloring & flicking & glitter & sequins AND COFFEE became coffee shaker cards! With our faithful furry friends as frequent crafting companions, I just had to add a #timholtz Crazy Dog & Crazy Cat. They’re looking a little caffeinated, too. 😂 Thanks for peeking! #handmadecard #inspiredbykindness
