Problems solved and a Face!

Since I started late with this I am going to try to draw through the next couple of months to practice faces. This one is just the face. I did not draw the shape of the head but it is implied. I know I have to practice some more but this is a start and I like how it turned out.

Technical Difficulties

Hello, sorry I don't have any faces yet for the challenge. I am experiencing technical difficulties. Not being able to upload is very frustrating to say the least. I am working on it so hopefully later in the month there will be some posts. I have a trip planned which also delays the posting and actually the fixing of the problem. I will continue to make as many faces as I can and post them later. Thanks for looking at the blog and staying with me.

29 Faces September 2016

Going to try to do this challenge in September. You try to draw, paint, sketch or create a face however you want. I am going to try all kinds of art materials to make my faces. For instance: pencil, watercolors, acrylic paint, and whatever else I have in my supply cabinet.
Come back in September and see what I do!

Art Journal page-You Are Loved

This is my current art journal page. I am getting back into doing some crafting and painting and stuff. I was inspired by Tangie Baxter in the Art Journal Emporium of which I have a subscription. I am planning on more pages in the near future. I just need to set aside a consistent time to work on these things.

Okay, It's Time to Post something new!

Okay, I have something for you to see...finally. I have been working on stuff-not my crafts or art, but family stuff. Needless to say, it hasn't been as fun as working on my projects. So, here are a couple of pictures of the quilt top I am working on. It is part of the block of the month club from Crafts Direct in St. Cloud, MN. They have a pretty big store and it is one of my favorite places to visit!

This first one is the January quilt block. It 12 1/2" square. When I was editing the picture I forgot to keep the proportions equal. So, just imagine it is square, thanks!

The second block-above-is, you guessed it!-February. I didn't like it when I saw the pattern, but after I put it together it kinda made it's way into my heart. The fabrics are so beautiful in "real life." That dark purple really sticks out doesn't it?  This is a lot of piecing but I am only working on one block per month so it goes pretty good. I need to get my March block done still. I'll post it in a couple of weeks. 

Thanks for looking! I'd appreciate any comments.

Another "Shari Art Girl"

So, I've been working on these She Art Girls and this is my second one. The first one I put on a journal page and this one is on a canvas. I like using the canvas. I will be making my third one on canvas too. 

Here are some close ups if you are interested. I have so much on these I think it is kind of nice to get all the details. 

In case you are wondering what She Art Girls are I will explain. I found a class on a blog from a pretty well known artist named Christy Tomlinson. She does a lot of this type of art and she calls it She Art. She offers classes. Right now I am taking a technique class from her. It is fun. You can find them on-line, just google Christy Tomlinson and you will find them. Christy also has a store so you can find the supplies you need for the classes-easy! (Scarlet Lime-search on google)

So that's it for now. I am going to add this to some challenge blogs. Thanks for visiting!

*I am renaming this post to "Shari Art Girl." I can't use the "She Art Girl" title because of copyright laws. She Art Girls belongs to Christy Tomlinson. Sorry Christy!

Still Here, but busy with Grand-kids

Just letting those of you who are faithful followers to me that I am still here but my grand-kids are staying for a week and I can't get into my craft room to do any cards or just about anything. Next week I will be back in the swing when my life settles down a little! Thanks for visiting, see you soon!

It's Summer, I'm going on vacation!

Just a quick little note to my followers: I am going on a real vacation -"away from home," which doesn't happen very often. So, I will be gone for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am not going to be able to work on anything so no posts until I get back. My next she art is in the works so come back later and take a look. Thanks.

Art Journaling a "Shari" Art Girl

Oh, I had so much fun making this journal page! It was so much fun to mess it up with paints, texture, and stamps. I also used rub-ons and lots of Modge Podge. (is that what it is?) I posted many pictures so you could get up close to see what I did. I'm working on my next one. I know I go slow but at least I am doing something, I tell myself.

I made this page on a mixed media weight paper. I'm not sure of the exact weight but it is heavy enough to take wet media like paint or paint sprays. I used Gesso on it first then my colors, etc. I used acrylic paints and some common tools to make the textures. One thing I used was bubble wrap. I love the look. The girl has boots on -which are probably too big, but what the heck! I like 'em! They are made from Burlap.  I took a class from Christy Tomlinson who does the She Art Girls. It is really fun.  She has a Mixed Media Shop called Scarlet Lime, which is great. She has video's on the site and other workshops that one can take to learn how she does her thing. I wish I had time to take them all. 

As always, thanks for visiting! I would love a comment on this if you can leave one. Please come again!

I am posting it on the following blogs:
