"The course of true love never did run
Shakespeare, Mid Summer's Night Dream
I downloaded an app on my iPad "paper 53" and I love it. A friend at work said to check it out, and I am glad I did....it is amazing. I love doodling...can't ya tell?
have a great day!

Always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by the garden gate, add pepper to your mashed potatoes, plant roses and lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.

This painting was so much fun. What inspired me was Richard Bach's quote
" what the caterpillar calls the end of the world...the Master calls a butterfly"
Isn't that the most beautiful saying? I used a background of gesso and let that dry. Then I layered upon layers of paint and texture. I used sharp edges to scrape the paint across the canvas. I used stamps, and stencils and bubblewrap, and netting and more scraping paint. I painted the flowers using craft paint and the small black daisy-like flowers on the bottom are rub-ons that I made into flowers which gave the painting more depth.
Hope you like the latest mixed media babybud painting!

hippity hoppity, Easter's on its way
These little cuties were so much fun to make.....only thing, watch out for the barbed needles and the fingers!
I decided to do something about that, so an old pair of leather gloves with the fingers cut off and used as thimbles works like a charm. These bunnies were made from a needle felting kit bought at Mary Maxim. The kit includes a mold, roving and needles. I purchased Easter color roving extra to the kit and added sweaters, bonnets, buttons and bows. Must be Miss Potter coming out!
