More playing with art ....

Hello lovely " Artsy" folk !!
This time of year plays havoc with my emotions. I know it is SADD , so I'm thinking of getting  a lamp. I need some ultra violet rays in a bad way. Lol
But, to deflect some of the downer thoughts , I play !!! I make art !!!
It may not be a cure all, but it certainly brightens my mood even if temporarily. 
Here are a few things I've played with recently. 
I saw the video that Gelli Arts ( Gelli plate co) put out on how to do transfer from Gelli plate to packing tape. I finally decided to try it. I like the results. I can use these cut up and added to collages, mail art, art journals , even binding for homemade books. 

I painted a few cute bunnies ... They are on 150 lb watercolor paper and done in watercolor and pencil. 

I did a painting in acrylics on an 8" x 8" gesso board. I'm pleased to say I SOLD it also. 

I put together a collage of some of my artwork. Take a peek. 

And just today, I was going to write for a bit in my regular daily journal, I had an itch to sketch a face. It turned into an angel.... Then I wrote a short quote.... Then did a teeny bit of coloring with pencils. 
I had forgotten to add the " light " in the pupils. So here:

So long till next time. 


  1. oh that little bird on the bottom
    left of the grid!!!! as for faces l, another tip. don't do the bottom eyelid. draw the eyes and then a light pencil mark under the eyes.

  2. I am so tickled by all of your comments and tips. It is great to find a kindred spirit !!
    Thank you thank you ...!!!!!
