A Little Christmassy

I purchased a new parallel pen, put in the red ink...once I wrote joy, I had to add some flowers...lets just say I'm ahead of the game, I've have Christmas tags done early!!
I used a white gel pen to make a design on the letters

Journal page


Class project. Faces do NOT come easy for me...I keep making the necks to narrow, and the eyes...it is so hard to get them the same!! I used a mixed media book, watercolor grabs the paper, next try will be on watercolor paper~

If you want to take the best class ever...and the best teacher...you need to sign up for her Lettering Love 101 class...its not to late...its only $35...treat yourself...and it will be a wonderful treat!!!

I made a little holder for the atc's to sit in while they travel to their new home
This gal is the largest I have ever made...because it is sitting on the largest sugar bowl I have ever seen. 8" high and 7" wide. Lots of vintage lace and buttons. A very pale pink Bird

NEST art journal

Took a trip up into the Los Angles National Forest...It burned up a few years ago, but we took it all the way from Pasadena over to the 15. Every time we stopped I would work on this, so by the time we got home it was ready for the watercolors. I wanted the background to have the same tone blueish, greenish, I wanted lights and darks. It was a lot of fun
