I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

She Believed She Could ~

It's my first painting.  Make that "finger" painting, because that's what I used.  Just my fingers to spread the various types of paint; a few pens, spray inks, stamps, scrapbook paper, fabric flowers, and my black marker.

Inspired by a demo and technique featured by Christy Tomlinson's on her website.

After I saw her demo, I thought "I would love to do that!"
And so I did.

Because ~ I believed I could.

And soooo... I did!


It was soooo fun!
I was completely thrilled to use some of my {very} old scrapbooking supplies on this project.  I also had  canvases purchased a couple years ago, thinking I would use them for my art quilts...  but never got around to it.  I have to say I also purchased the June monthly kit from Christy's website, and I was pleasantly surprised; it came with a stamp, some Dylusions Spray Ink, (a product I've never used before - love love), rub-ons, and {more} scrapbooking paper, these cute brads, flowers and a stencil.  Yum~more fun art supplies!


I can't wait to do MORE!  

{Of course ~ I have lots more ideas for future projects which I've already begun in my sketchbook, and some other types of themes I can't wait to pursue}
EnJOY the possibilities!
XO
