LB2014 with Ania Dabrowska, Finnabair

This is what I did in LB 2014 this week.  I did not finish a lesson with Tamara LaPorte on spray inks a few weeks ago, so I decided to used the face I drew for that class in this weeks lesson by Anna Dabrowska...what an amazing class!

Gelli Plate Art Quilt

I do love playing with my gelli plate.  I recently painted  fabric and made  an art quilt.  It may look familiar because i did the same design in paper last year.  I have also made a throw pillow usinging my gelli plate to create the fabric first!

Sunset in the Imaginary Flower Garden!

Yesterday I painted some canvas fabric....I used masking tape to section off some areas, so I could do some color blocking. I had a background that I made a while back, so I thought I would challenge myself and used the painted  tape, that I removed from the fabric, to create some flowers...I had to add a few paper scraps for three of the flowers, because I ran out of tape... and the circles are masks from a gelli plate project! 
It was inspired by Carla Sonheim's class on LB2014.  Making it was such fun!

Spring Fling!

It's only January 1 and I am so tired of cold and snow! So, yesterday I decided to make flowers!  My background is Dylusions ink sprays.  My flowers and stems were cut from gelli print papers I have collected.  I was inspired by Traci Bautisca's work!....think spring and stay warm!

Mixed media, A day to remember

I was playing with some spray inks in my journal and put down more than I intended.  I took a piece of water color paper and put it on top and absorbed some of the ink.   I liked how it looked so I drew a face on it. I colored her hair and the remaining background with distress inks and added some collage.  Here is the beginning and finished piece.
