Inspiration Wednesday - February

I enjoyed this week's challenge with Donna Downey - Inspiration Wednesday.  I love book text, music pages, etc.    I have an old recipe book I found at a yard sale many years ago that is my go to when I need some text pages.  It is spring, so flowers are showing up everywhere, and I couldn't resist adding a few here. The brown 'stain' on the first page of my journal is my first attempt at using Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.  Very fun and they really glide over the matte medium I put over the pages.

Inspiration Wednesday

We are now into February with Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday Challenges.  This weeks was another using the dripping paint technique.  I just cannot seem to warm up to that, so did my take on a color block idea a friend shared with me.  I had just received some Dylusions paint in the mail and was excited to see how the colors blended together.

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 2

Today is another journal page from Inspiration Wednesday with Donna Downey.  I used supplies that have been in the hoard for a long time, and something new.    First was texture paste/modeling paste to create texture on the page.  Second, is glazing liquid that I added some paint to.  This is a totally cool technique.  You paint the glazing liquid all over your page, and then remove the amount of color you want with baby wipes.  I loved the effect.  Here is this weeks entry....

Inspiration Wednesday...A new adventure for me

This year, my friend Shelann challenged me to try something completely different and out of the norm for me.  She introduced me to Donna Downey and Inspiration Wednesday.  Every 2 weeks during 2016, Donna releases a new video challenge for us.  To say this is a struggle is an understatement!  But a fun one.  I'm a bit slow to get started, but am vowing to speed up my art in the coming weeks.  Here.... is week 1.

I am into the drippy not too pleased with this, but do love the bicycle and saying.  I am retired and truly enjoying every moment I get to spend outside.  Donna encouraged us to choose a word that describes our goals for 2016 - my word of the year is ENJOY.
