A few new things....

Finished this little painting. Here is what I started with:

Then this:
Until the finished painting
Leftover paint from my palette went into an art journal:

I don't usually do portraits. Not my forte , but for the heck of it I did one. 
I have some more new things I've finished. Maybe I'll make a new post tomorrow. 🤓

Re-Purposing lovely old books ....


As the title of the post implies, that's what I've been up to. Well, that and some other little creative things here and there. 

I'm trying to retain the old weathered look , but wanted to keep the turquoise color theme to keep all the books looking like they belong in a family together ~ cohesive ~ 
I will be using them for art journals , but perhaps with different themes or mediums being used in them. 
The smallest book was just a dictionary of sorts that I tore some pages out of to make room as it grows with paint and collage. 
 ( sorry for the sideways picture I tried but couldn't get it to stay right sided lol )

This was actually an old scrapbook and there are places in which to add pages. 
I love it. 

And this lovely is an old ledger. The pages are a little brittle bit should hold up to gesso and some paint and collage. 
So that's a little bit of what I've been up to. I say it every time, but I really do hope to post more often and have some fun stuff such as tutorials, giveaways and some journal pages to share. 
Have a blessed and creative day,
