Friends, I have been using a ton of color in my projects recently. I seriously believe that something positive happens in our bodies when we really take in color, through our eyes, through all our senses. I’ve been doing some more scrapbooking recently – it’s helping me be present and work through some personal tragedy, but most of all, appreciate the many many blessings in my life. I am starting to feel at ease with the large 12 x 12 format. And I’m using tons of media.
In my own artistic journey, I’m most excited lately about the ease I’m feeling with mists and paints and the effects I’ve been able to come up with. Today I have a few stamped projects on the Hampton Art blog with details, instructions, and materials listed over there – hope you’ll stop by. Here’s one card in which I manipulated my mists to create a feeling of sunset.
A detail of some of the misting…
NUTS NUTS NUTS about veining! Whether created with hot glue or mists or whatevah!!!! Here’s a detail of the simple yet dramatic stamp I used. See the solitary bird? Mmm mmm mmm!
And here’s a layout (more details at Hampton Art) that I did of my wire-y furry baby, who I’ve realized in the last week or so, has somehow secured herself in Alpha position in our family… ummm, she’s only 7 lbs! So funny and so full of infectious joy.
Lots of color mixing here, too.
Isn’t she adorable?!!! I used rather new Hampton Art/Echo Park stamps, one of my oldest and beloved Sizzix dies, and some Core’dinations as well.
Hope you will be able to stop by the Hampton Art blog today!
It’s Anything Goes over at Simon Says Stamp, so I’m going to give it a shot with these projects!
P.S. Thanks for your kind words, friends, following my bad news. When I read your comments, I feel your support and I feel better, too. I’m grateful for you.
