I am always making art of some sort. Most of the art pirces on display in this post were made this past week, except for one oil pastel drawing and the two rubbing template designs which are from the week before.

Collage fodder and mark making with black sumi ink and acrylic markers, plus a cool packaging tape trick!

Experimenting with distressed backgrounds and tags for art journaling.
Recently, I ordered some distressed oxide stamps and ink from Tim Holtz, some gloss sprays from Dina Wakley, and some Dylusion sprays. Yesterday and today, I have been experimenting with how to use them. The examples below are the results. This is the first time I have ever tried them. I am happy with theContinue reading “Experimenting with distressed backgrounds and tags for art journaling.”
