New Ephemera Painting

I am inspired by some many wonderful artists on Instagram. This new canvas was created after seeing what my wonderful friend Emily Lagore was doing on IG. She was painting flowers and doodling on them. I was so enthralled with her what she was doing....I pulled out a canvas and began this project.

First layer....old music sheets, and old short hand pages.

then added paint

then went in and added sharpie doodles

I even paint over the edges when I do a canvas...framing is expensive...so I take my art over the edges so it looks cool too...and I don't have to frame :0)

All done and very Happy!!!

Thanks for stopping by......Have an awesome day :0)

My Poodle Pack

My sweet little Daisy cuddling with me on the couch.

LOL!!! When I started baby talking to her...the other two heard me and came running...they wanted in on the loving as well. 

(fyi... Zoey and Daisy are on the couch with me, and my Bella girl is standing on her feet next to the couch. This gives you a good idea on how big she really is:):)

I very rarely can get these girls in the same photo...so I love it when I can do that.

Okay girls...there is not enough room in this bed for all of us...so who is getting off the bed? Any volunteers??

My constant Art companions.... (Daisy and Zoey)

My grand Bella... those legs.... so long and gorgeous :0)

I Love my girls! They bring such joy to my life. I just can't imagine a life without a few poodles in it.

Thank for stopping by... Poodle kisses!

Making Her First Quilt

I am having a grand time teaching my good friend Becky how to quilt. She is making a "Turning Twenty Quilt".

Planning 

Great layout on the dining room floor.

Putting her last border on .....
She did such a great job!!! I'm so proud of her!

Now we make the back and pin baste the layers together.

I really enjoy teaching the different arts and crafts that I know. It is sooo much FUN:):)

3 Generation Painting

                                                                                 
I decided I wanted a 3 generation painting with my Mother and my Daughter....so I got them to work on a canvas with me.

They both looked at me and said..."I can't paint" I laughed and said "Yes you can!" When I explained to them that we were NOT going to make an object...we were just going to make marks and splotches...they both relaxed and jumped in to try :0)
So, we each picked 3 colors and played...then we switched places.




This is were we stopped mark making and started to block out a subject.

My Mom loves butterflies..so I drew a simple butterfly and we blocked out the outsides so all the cool marks we made would pop out on the wings.
and here we are with the finished canvas....3 generations.


This is going to be a treasured memory with my family.

Thanks for stopping by :0)
