Frugal Tips E-book

Check this out for some GREAT frugal tips!

New Art Supplies from Derwent Inktense and Balzar Design with Crafter’s Workshop helping me with my fear of painting faces!

Now just for fun I ordered some new stencils for Face Painting. From Crafter’s Workshop, Balzar Design, these too too fun stencils can help you create faces in a snap!

Now watch these videos and see what fun you can have with them!

I’ve only had a chance to play a little but this is what I’ve come up with….Which also helps with my “fear of Painting faces” as I’ve mentioned numerous times before!

Now Another great Product I”ve recently discovered are InkTense pencils put out by Derwent.  Now these are NOT cheap tools, but so far I can tell they are going to last a very long time and they’re so much fun they’re worth every penny.  They are much, well, exactly like WaterColor pencils, except with vibrant Inks and wow are they have made my Christmas break…I can’t stop using them!  As with Water Color pencils you can use them on their own as a pencil (boring in my humble opinion when that’s what Prismacolors are for!)  You can dip the tip in water and draw…amazing, you can draw with the pencil and spray with water for a great effect or draw with the pencil and brush over with a wet brush for an amazing result!  (My favorite!)  So below is a piece I just finished using mostly the pencils over canvas, molding paste and vintage papers.



So these are my new Toys and I hope you enjoy them as well!

If you got any new art toys for Christmas PLEASE share them in the comment section below, maybe a sample of you playing around with them and a link or name we could google so we can play too!  Would love to hear about some other new products (or at least new to me!)

Completion of Mosaic Series (for now!)

Happy New Year!

This is a Commission I did my latest phase of mosaics and the client loved it. It was on the theme of Dreams and I think I captured the idea he wanted pretty well. And it was a nice completion to a fun series.

Next in a series of Mosaic Women from The Flavor of Mixed Media

This was so much fun, just to sketch out a woman and have fun with the mosaics…..these are little pieces that I plan to offer for $40-$50 at my shows for those who can’t do the big pieces. I’m really enjoying them….my husband not so much!! He has very different tastes!!!

New Piece: “Flavor for Mixed Media”

Well, this is just a fun piece I did trying something new out of a book called “Flavor for Mixed Media” by Mary Betyh Shaw.  It was too much fun and has inspired me to add my own style to it…I can’t wait to play around with it more…check out the book…it’s too much fun!She Steps
