Doodle Mugs

Happy New Year! 2015, it is here and that seems surreal to me, such an odd number, it still seems futuristic to me. This year I made a lot of art for presents for Christmas and some of the paintings I did are on the last post here for the Sketchbook Challenge. Some of the other things I made I could not post because they were secret. This one is super easy and everyone loved it. Doodle mugs. I bought some cappuccino mugs from Target. Then I bought a marker made for porcelain and glass. The Deco Art Glass Paint Marker. It comes in other colors but I wanted the simplicity of black and white....

Mini Book Ornament and Haiku

I have been making book ornaments for about 15 years. I love books, love the holidays and what is not to love about combining the two? This year was special because I got to decorated them with papers I made with my new stencils. I started with a saturated piece of paste paper. Added a layer of Silks (acrylic glazes) using my stencils. I kept adding layers until I was satisfied. Love that. Did a few more papers. And a few more. For this project you need: 2 pieces decorative paper 3″ x 3″ 2 pieces mat board 2.5″ x 2.5″ 1 piece colored paper for text block 2.25 x...

Layers of My Heart

This is a magical hanging card that I designed for my mother, Jo, for Mother’s Day. It is based on the layered vellum technique I developed a number of years ago for my journals and classes, and is used in the first two projects of my book, Personal Geographies. I love seeing the layers of color, how using see through paper adds dimension and in this case, when you hang it in a window, you get a big surprise! You can use doodles, Zentangles, a journal page, nearly anything for the base of this project. Supplies: Illustration, the base of the project on white paper 3 pieces of clear...
