A Collaged Postcard with Joyce Meyer's quote

Postcard: Angel's Song
Quote by Joyce Meyer

The Dove was created from individually cut pieces. From the head, to the wings, to each feather in her tail. The dot in her eye was a sweet surprise as I did not plan for it.  I left it instead of giving her the eye I intended for her to have.

The backdrop were remnants from cut circle for my ASRC class. I could not discard them and knew I could use them as a background for something. I have a few more left so they will pop up from time to time. Or maybe I am addicted to this background until I run out! Love the textures it gives!

MMSA Orange Postcard Swap

I worked on two different postcards for 'Mail Me Some ART' group:

Both are different but I worked with different texture on each. Had fun as one ended up feeling like plastic with the layers of gel...

Oranges is simple with an acrylic course texture mixed into orange acrylic paint. then sealed with gel medium. I am happy with the outcome.
Orange Butterflies are collaged on top of an orange tissue background. Under the bright orange tissue paper is a hidden image of a couple of oranges.

Art Journal Spread in Working Progress

Cuddling Hatchlings...
Art journaling is another art form that I love to work in. This 2 page spread is in a recycled College Course Brochure. It's pages are glossy which are sometimes difficult to work on. A couple coats of gesso and I was ready to begin with my soft pastels after I tried out a new spray called Smooch Spritz by Clear Snap. I also finally found a small honeycomb stencil that I found affordable at Michael's. The spread is work in progress=WIP.
