So Blue

I drew this face and had a lot of trouble with the hair. I painted, wiped it off, painted again to many times. I decided to put it away, but, I took a picture of it first....after I wiped the paint off, again! I put it into my photo editing software and palyed with it. I changed the background color many times...I now have this girl with, at least ten hair colors! I am making notecards from the images. I need some cool quotes to type on the front of each one....and ideas?

Gelli Print Pillow!

A while back I saw a hand painted, strip quilted pillow on Julie Fei Fan balzer's blog.  I really liked it, but, never did make it.  So, I thought I would try and paint the fabric with my Gelli plate.  I cut my fabric into differnt size strips and started painting.....So much fun!!!  I used Jaquard textile paints and they worked well.  I added the word ART and a few others for contrast.

Flowers in my hair

Wow! It's been over two weeks since I've posted!  Life does get in the way. This is just a simple collage done on a gelli print background.  I cut out  a face from a magazine and painted over it and added some collage elements and printed words.  Easy journal page....The little lady circled in white is my mom...many years ago.
