I Am Enough - Frida Art Journal Page

I am enough - words of inspiration and affirmation for this week's art journal page featuring Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.  I admire her work, many of them self portraits, created during a time when she was from health problems and a rough marriage.  But, she always believed in herself and her work and felt that she was enough.

Working on Tags Today #WOYWW

On my work table today I have some #8 tags that I'm creating with some Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks, stencils and Americana Acrylic Paints.

I've been watching a lot of his tutorials on layering with stencils, paint and ink.  He makes it look so easy!  But, I'm happy with how these are looking so far.

With each order I ship I send one of these tags as a little something extra.  They can be used as gift tags, book markers or for art journaling.

Thanks so much for visiting on this #WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday).

Creative Blog Hop - A little bit about me

I'm so happy to be sharing some of  my creative process with you today.  First, I want to thank Katie over at Punk Projects for graciously inviting me to participate in this Creative Blog Hop.  Every Monday artists, writers, and creative souls share some of their creative world.


 I met Katie through the Paper Wings Productions design team.  She is a regular member and I am a guest designer.  Katie has such a variety in what she creates, from painted canvas shoes to mixed media book markers.  I always look forward to seeing what she's up to.

WOYWW - What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

This week I'm working on getting ready for my Fall Art Shows and creating some Holiday canvases.  I'm doing a collection on recycled wood pallet canvases that I got from Doug over at Redeemwood.  Each piece has such character and not two are alike.  I'm sharing today for the first time with the group over at WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  It's always fun to take a peak into other artist's spaces and see what they're working on.

Vintage Storage for the Studio

Recently I've seen some really inspiring studio storage on Pinterest.  I'm wanting to bring more vintage items and  storage into my studio, not only for the look, but I'm a true believer of re-use, re-purpose and re-cycle.

Art Journal Pages

Today I finished up a couple of pages in my altered book art journal.  Both of these have actually been in the making for a while with left over paint from other projects.

Tags Galore!

Today I'm creating some tags using DecoArt's Media Line fluid acrylics and other products from their new line.  Some of them aren't available online yet, but they will be soon.  I love this line, they have such brilliant colors and go on so smoothly.
