April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy Sunday,

So as the saying goes... "April Showers Bring May Flowers" is a challenge at the FaceBook group Post Your Project.

Here's my take on the challenge. I did a journal page. I used Gelatos for the background. Stamped the houses and flowers with StazOn Ink and colored them in with Faber Castell Big Brush Markers. Then used Inktense Block shavings to color some Liquitex Modeling Paste and with a Prima Raindrop Stencil made the raindrops.

Water Color Crayons

Happy Sunday,

Today I want to share a journal page I made using my
 
What I did was wet the page and then wet my brush and pulled the color off of the crayon and let it drip and smear on the page. Some areas I let the colors run and in others I dried between layers. I tried to turn the pink blobs into flowers. I think I should have stamped a flower rather than try to draw as you can see I don't draw very well. 

 
 I was inspired to try this technique from watching CreationsCeeCee on you Tube. She did this painting and hers came out beautiful mine not so much but the important thing is I had fun trying.

Serenity

Happy Sunday,

My project share this week is a painting. The painting is called Serenity. We went to MUSE paintbar in West Hartford, CT. as a surprise for my mother-in-laws birthday.

This is my finished painting.


From left to right...
Elaine, Pat, Carol (my mom) & Claudette (my mother-in-law) with their finished paintings.


Here are a few of the pictures during our session. We had a private party and brought in some pizza and cupcakes.



 
 
 
 
My mother-in-law Claudette and my husband Dave. He can be such a goof ball.
 
 
 
Can't forget the wine... Moscato
 

 
 
Everyone had a great time and tons of laughs. Although my mother-in-law had a great time it's not something she would do again. She said painting is not her thing.
