This is an acrylic on canvas painting I created several years ago. I gave it to my daughter for Christmas the year before last and she has it hanging in her bedroom. I love the background colors and how the pink flowers pop against the background.
This is an acrylic on canvas painting I did for my son and his wife for Christmas a couple of years ago. I used a liquid mask for the gate, painted the background and then removed the mask and painted the gate. I like the ornate design on the gate.
This is a painting I did for my hubby. I painted this quite a few years ago for him before we were married. We just got married this year in May. It is acrylic on canvas and currently hangs in our living room. I love lighthouses and I really enjoyed painting this one.
These are some of my favorite art journal pages from Life Book 2013. I have really enjoyed Life Book this year and really looking forward to Lifebook 2014. Although I have been doing art for years, I have learned a lot this past year about myself, my art and some new techniques. I recommend Life Book to anyone who enjoys being creative or wants to start art journaling. I am hoping some day I will be able to teach a class or two for Life Book myself. Happy journaling.
A journal page I created after a trip to Atlanta, GA. I traveled there for business and saw a bunch of red tulips that were in full bloom, which inspired this journal page. Nature inspires my art in every way. I get more inspiration from nature that anywhere else or anything else. What in nature have you experienced recently that has inspired you to create a journal page?
An art journal page that was inspired after a trip to Sea World with my Husband a couple of years ago. I love to draw and paint animals and enjoyed doing this layout in my journal. Have you done a journal page recently that was inspired by an event? I would love to hear about it.
An art journal page that was inspired after a trip to St. Augustine, FL a couple of years ago with my now husband. I wanted to remember my trip there and included the things I like the best about the trip. It is a combination of painted elements and ephemera from our trip. What trips have you taken lately that have inspired you to create a journal page?
