September Mixed Media Contest

This is my entry for the contest over at http://www.facebook.com/groups/405073446194833/.

THEME: “GIVING BACK”
Challenge Guidelines:
  1. Create a project of your choice -Canvas, Art Journal, Tag, Card, Altered item etc.
  2. Project must include at least 1 Recyled household item ( Example: Toilet paper roll, soda can, bottle cap, cereal box etc)
  3. Include at least 1 stamp in your project ( Of course we would love to see you use Unity Stamps but not required)
  4. Theme: this project must be for someone in your life that could use their spirits lifted or someone you just knew this would make a difference with if they received something from you.  It could also be someone you know that has been active in your community and making a difference, you decide.

So this is what I did:

1. Art Journal – First page done in my new Collage /Art Journal

3. Stamp included from Unity Stamps – Art & Possibility (Donna Downey).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. I did this at a retreat and taught some of the participants some techniques used. They loved learning new things!

5. I definitely had a blast!! I painted with my fingers, used texture paste, ink sprays….FUN!!

New Blog!

Hi all!

I used to have a personal blog but it got to the point where it was hard to change it etc. etc.. Wow! Things sure have changed in the Blog World since then. So much easier!
I started to Art Journal a little while ago and thought I would start this blog to share them. Hope you enjoy!

August Mixed Media Contest

I joined a Facebook group a little while ago called Limor1278 Mixed Media Art Group and have enjoyed sharing and seeing what others are creating. This is my entry into the August Mixed Media Contest.

I had to make a journal page or tag with a sunset or sky theme using at least one Faber Castell Design Memory Craft product.

Here is my journal page:

I used some of my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos. Oh how I love Gelatos!! Blue, Purple, Red, Green, Gold and Silver.

The quote says “Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal.” Elbert Hubbard
