Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Working with Paper and Canvas

The first picture is a mixed media piece.  I have ribbon, a heart button, bird cut outs, blue and pink card stock and a stamped floral design which I have colored with my water color pencils. I am pleased with the results. The birds look as though they are flying over water and the ribbon resembles palm leaves.  The floral stamp finishes off the edges of the design.  I have not glued them in place yet, but when it is done I plan on putting it onto a canvas frame.


The cut outs are my own design and are glued directly on a canvas.  
The mane of the Lion and the grass pop out a bit to give it a three dimentional effect.  

I have no idea what this little elephant is looking for but he sure does have his eye in that palm tree.  I am having fun creating these paper cutouts. This little elephant is one of my favorites.  Using all these different papers really give the piece a lot of texture and depth.
