Another Original....By Me!

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Here in Wisconsin we are in a major heat wave.....hot and humid! I like hot...but not humid! Guess that means it's a good time to stay indoors with the AC and craft!

Today, I want to share my final project from my summer art class. We had to either do an achromatic (black & white) or monochromatic (black, white, and one other color) painting. As you can see I went with the monochromatic and used my tube of magenta paint. It's so awesome mixing just one color of paint with different hues of white, black, and gray to see what you can all get for a color. Of course my topic was flowers....because I feel that is the only thing I can draw decently! lol! I was scared to paint...but after this project...I think paint and I are slowly becoming great friends....who knows maybe I will paint something on my own in the future!

I also have a card to share with you that I made for Embellish-Online. I wanted to make a card with the fun and bright American Craft Backyard Collection papers without using any stamps....I almost succeeded until I used my small "hello" stamp for the tag. The flowers and butterflies are cut out from the Buzz paper and I used some wire for the antennas on the butterflies. The flowers and butterflies are pop'd up with foam tape.


Card Recipe:
