Painting Deli Paper

We went out to a buffet for Easter dinner with our family tonight.  The food was awesome.  I really enjoyed the turkey and mashed potatoes with gravy.  The dressing was very good too!  I hope you all had a wonderful day with your family!

When we got back from dinner, I watched Patti Parrish on YouTube and she inspired me to paint some deli papers for washi tape.  I didn't have the full sheet labels to glue the strips down to so I used printer paper.  I can glue them down as I need them, but I would have preferred to have the label sheets!

I thought I would share the painted deli papers I painted tonight.  I will have photos tomorrow when I make them into washi tape:)

Love Teddy Becomes Teddy Love

After looking at my collage painting, I decided there were things I didn't like.  So I did more painting!

She needed arms to hold her teddy and after that I decided I didn't like her dress so I painted that too!  Yikes!  Almost a complete makeover.... -:)  I did put words on her....

I can move on to the next thing now.

Love Teddy Painting

I was working in my art journal again yesterday and finished her last night.  I couldn't scan her in until today but I wanted to share -:)  You will notice I am not a journaler!  So I guess this is my "Artbook".  lol

Songbird Painting

I am still working on painting faces and backgrounds.  Today I finished another face but not part of any class.  I call her Songbird.  I love the way this one turned out.  I traced this face:

..... and this is how she turned out:

I don't take the greatest photos due to lack of light, so she was scanned in two parts because my art journal is huge!  So here is the first half of her, which I thought was pretty.
