Prayer for Peace

 

I have had these antique chandelier Crystals for several years.  In a world that is filled with war and violence I decided to create a Christmas ornament that would be a visual reminder of my prayer for this Christmas.

I started with Sandra Evertsons Dresden wings and Relics and artifact Milagros.  Tim Holtz bottle brush wreath cut in half and reformed and peace from Tim Holtz sizzix handwritten holidays.

I covered the wings with glossy accents and then sprinkled them with Diamond Dust and let the wings dry.

I then covered the praying angle with Pebeo glitter medium and let it dry.

I assembled the ornament by using E6000 to attach wings, praying child, crystal, peace word and wreath .   After they dried I hung it on the tree.

Here is how it looks on the tree with and without lights.

I hope that the peace of Christmas will invade your life this year.

Lady in Green

Lady in green Continuing to practice what I learned from Dina Wakley.  When I took her online class she mentioned an artist by the name of Tina Berning and a book she did titled “100 women on Cheap Paper”. after looking Tina Up I was inspired me to look for something unusual to draw on.   I found these old Scan Tron ballot sheets in my office that were used a couple of years ago and decided to do a series of faces on them.  I always had test anxiety when we had to take test in school so some of them will reflect that.  I drew about 25 faces in one evening and I am now in the process of going back and collaging them in a book.    I continue to use Dina Wakley’s paint and even one of her masks in this collage.   I also used a Tim Holtz stamp for the phrase that is at the bottom.  Hope you enjoy. 

Too all the Red Head Girls in my life…

Too all the Red Head Girls in my life...

I have been practicing my drawing skills. I have been focusing on faces of both women and men.

This is one of my favorite pictures so far. I know it isn’t perfect. Her eyes are not symmetrical nor are they the same size but there is something I find intriguing about this picture.

According to Marion Roach “All the action adventure girls have red hair,” he said. “Whenever it is an independent girl, not a sidekick person, when she has her own mind or does as good as the guys, she has red hair.”

Maybe that is why I like the picture so much. Lets hear it for the Red Heads!
