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.

Fun with Friends and Mixed Media Canvas

What a wonderful week I had in Arizona!  My friend Diane has the most fabulous craft room in which we spent hours of fun creating these wonderful pieces of art.  I worked on the polymer clay pieces while Diane created the backgrounds by adding different textures.

We delved into the fabulous world of Steam Punk, creating these two mixed media canvas pieces. The hair  was made out of curled construction paper. Diane had some sheetrock tape which gave  this one such a wonderful look and the shiny background is air conditioning tape. I love how they turned out!!!

One day our friend Gayl joined us, bringing small canvases and all kinds of wonderful items for embellishments. She showed us how to create these darling double hanging canvases.  I loved how they transformed with each added step. the one at the  bottom is Diane's the one on the left is Gayl's and the one on the right is mine.  It was so much fun learning something new.  Both Diane and Gayl are so very talented as you can see by their artwork.
