Day of the Dead - Mini-Purse

Hi there, today I want to share fun project.  I love, love to paint, seriously I can paint all day if I could.   I purchased this small wood purse at Michaels craft store.  I won this huge prize from Paid and decided to use some of their paints.  I didn't really know what this was going to look like, most of the time I don't have any ideas, I just start painting and let creativity take it's own course. 
I used folk art Pickling Wash coral beauty and haze to paint the outside of the purse and for the handle I used their  brushed metal  in gold.  I like the pickling wash paints because it allows you to see the grain of the wood.  I thought at this point it would be a nice effect.  

Here you can see the two different colors I used.
Well, as I looked around I decided to use another product that was new to me.  I took out  some ink pads from Ann Butler by Color Box it said you could use on wood, so I had to give it a try.   I decided to use ocean breeze, aquamarine and Berry. …

My Love for Art!

Hi there, for many, many years I've found art to be relaxing, to be an outlet to express how I feel, or to help me feel better. I love drawing, painting, creating art in one way or another, I love, love getting my fingers dirty with the many colors of paint, with resin, glue, you name it, well except for nail polish, because it always gets destroyed with ink and paints, LOL

Here are some of my art works I've done recently, a FaceBook friend Sandra Strait inspired me to get into Doodle drawing this year, I love her work and well I give her credit for inspiring me to start something new and fun and very addictive.  These are a few of the small Artist Tiles I've done, there's more.  Most of these started in black and white, later on I added color, I have to say my favorite is black ink, really fun to create with black, then see how everything transforms when you begin to add color, you have to know when to stop, sometimes I add a lot, sometimes just a little bit.

I hope y…
