Ken Oliver, Dylusions and Hahnemühle


Lately l have been playing with liquid watercolor, trying some old techniques and some new techniques. Seeing what works and what doesn’t. Yesterday I pulled out a couple bottles of Ken Oliver’s Liquid Watercolor and I want to show you what I did with them. This project began in my Report & Art Book from… Continue Reading

Some of My Bible Journaling


I wanted to share a little of the Bible journaling I’ve been doing lately. I mentioned washi tape a few days ago and I had comments asking for other ways to use washi in a Bible. One way is included in this post. I used a strip of washi tape to mark the first page… Continue Reading

Avery Elle Liquid Watercolor


I’ve been wanting to try Avery Elle’s line of liquid watercolors and I finally purchased a few bottles to try. And I’d been wanting to try some wet media in my Hahnemühle Report & Art Book, so this was the perfect time. Do you remember my color book where I keep my colors organized? I… Continue Reading

Schmincke and Hahnemühle


My favorite brand of watercolors hands down is Schmincke. True, I haven’t tried every brand out there, but for what I do and the ones I’ve tried – you just can’t beat Schmincke.

Tissue Paper Backgrounds


The I Dare You! prompt in Tangle All Around this week is to make colorful backgrounds using tissue paper. (I posted a tutorial here.) I remember how much fun it was to make these backgrounds the first time, so I pulled out my tissue paper and played again. I bought this tissue paper on Amazon…. Continue Reading

Moving On From Acrylics


So excited! February’s lessons for the 2019 Artfully Inspired Life should be live now. Yayay!!! I believe we move on to watercolor backgrounds and I am so much more in love with those! These acrylic backgrounds are so hit and miss. I do six and maybe almost like one. I know part of the class… Continue Reading

Organized Color


Let’s talk color. I guess I should be ashamed to say how much color product I have on hand. In my defense, I do use it. All the time! I am so about the color – as you have probably already figured out. I have been referred to as the Queen of Color for several… Continue Reading

Have You Sent Me Your Tangles?


Putting out the call one more time before I seriously get down to work on this new book. So I had a great idea to make one book that contains all my tangle patterns and all of Christine and Sandra’s patterns as well. Then I got the idea to invite my Facebook group Tangle All… Continue Reading
