Bein' Bad....Bein' Me!

Yesterday I was bad again! Or should I just say I was still bad!! I had to run a couple of quick errands for HB and since I was driving right past Joann's, and since I had a 50% coupon in my purse....well, I'm sure you know what happened! I found some beautiful lace and bought 1/2 yard of each, and they had some of their stencils on sale so I got a couple more, and I needed a new pad of Bristol....and while I was in that department I noticed canvas frames were on sale so I got some of those too. I think you get the picture!! When HB and I drive past Joann's or Michael's or Barnes & Noble's he always waves. He says he's waving at his money!

I have a couple of things to show you today. First of all, earlier I showed a picture of some "dragon skin" from my class with Gary. The original picture is on this post. After I got my automotive goo I worked on it some more and this is the result....


You can't tell in the picture but I took gold and just hit the highlights and it looks so cool. I also turned it vertical and like it much better that way. It makes me think of underwater and bubbles etc. I like it now!

I worked on another little piece that was inspired by two of my blogger friends.... Lila and Lia....


Lila for the pear and Lia for the squares! I'm not sure if it's finished yet but I love the colors.

And here are a couple of pages in my art journal that I did yesterday....


I like these pages sooooooo much!!

And this page was the result of another page....I was experimenting with some stencils and didn't like how it turned out but this page is where I used the paint left on the stencil and printed with it. I hope that makes sense. I just love how this one turned out....


It makes me think of tire tracks.

  6. Loving the stencil pages - they are awesome. How did you make your own stencils? Is it easy to do. Everyone who knows Lia loves her love of squares and I am sure has inspired many of us at one time. I certainly have inchies a go briefly because they looked so good. A little too small a canvas for me but I still have a play every now and then.
