Wow, way too long since my last post. Thank you Diana, dear friend for the gentle nudge. I've been doing more work in my art journal and have scanned a couple more pages to share. My last year has been a bit rough due to my husband's illness and these two pages were created during that time. I've been taking a few online workshops and learning lots of fun new techniques and will try to be better about posting more often! I have an online subscription to lynda.com (a wonderful website that offers tons of lessons on how to do just about anything using tons of different software applications). They now have tutorials for blogger, so one of my New Years resolutions is to learn a little more about posting and make my blog more interesting. I'll try to post more often.

I've been having fun working in a small (5 1/2" x 8") spiral bound journal. Just putting things on a page, trying to make a point to "use what I have", which is tons and tons of art supplies I've been collecting for several years! Some of my pages have space for writing (quotes or whatever pops into my head at the time) and others were ok without any words.

Well, I'm moving my blog from Typepad to Blogger! The only bad thing was the name I wanted was unavailable. I hadn't been very good about posting on a regular basis, so it made absolutely no sense at all to have a blog and be paying for it every month. My good friend Diana mentioned that you could "move" a blog, so I thought "What the heck, I'll give it a try". It really was pretty simple to do. Now, let's see if I'm any better at posting on this one:)

I scanned my pages from another class at Artiscape - Paula Hardesty's "A Symphony of Backgrounds". She is a wonderful instructor and I always learn fun new things in her classes. These two pages were done using Golden's fluid acrylic paints - one of my favorite mediums to work with. The quality of their products is just amazing and the colors are just phenomenal! We stamped with gesso (the white image areas) and fluid acrylics on top of a background we built layer by layer. I was very happy with the results. I can't wait to try more color combinations.
