Daisy Yellow Art Tangents # 7--Doodle art grid

tried putting the doodles on a painted background, but they got a little lost.  Just got this black card stock on sale at AC Moore last week, and tried them on it.  Doodle love!


Background from Itkupilli and Rucola designs, image from Google.

Art journal tangents--# 6 Quirky girl

whew, I am very far behind in this project (I love my life, but sometimes it gets away from me...), but I "finished" my "girl".  Still want to do some journalling but that will be even slower.

I quite like her, but she does need a little more oomph!

Daisy Yellow Color Fun week two

This week our colors are Charcoal, Tangerine, Sepia, Lavender and Sky.  Our prompts include House, torn paper,tulip, quotation ,color wheel and waves/surf.

Here are three...
cutouts colored with oil pastels and micron pen

Cutouts and black marker

Tangerine/torn paper
Cutouts and collages bits of torn gelli printed deli paper--love the translucency of the collaged bits.

I received a big box of back issue Stampington magazines yesterday.  the shipping was outrageous, but some of the issues were only $.99. Totally worth it for the excellent reading, fabulous inspiration, not to mention page after page after page of great stuff to cut up and repurpose!

Also linking again to Order of the Opus Gluei ATC challenge,

Jumping into another challenge--Order of the Opus Gluei

Been following this challenge site through the work of my  blog friend, Electra, and thought I would finally step up.  The current challenge is ATCs, which I like to make.

So here are three to begin with.

I guess they are a series...dictionary pages, spray ink and stencils, with random words and cutouts.  Still loving my circle punches
