Watercolour Art with Stencils and Pan Pastels

I have a super quick post today!

I created a guide on how I used The Crafters Workshop Stencils and Pan Pastels to create pattern in my watercolour Painting.

Check out How to Use Stencils in a Watercolour Painting by Lydell Quin on Snapguide.

Upcoming auction at Von Rock Auctions and Sales.



I have been painting furiously over the last few weeks.  I am being represented in an online auction held at the end of February.  Von Rock Auctions and Sales has a variety of art for sale.  Some amazing artists there!  Auction starts on Friday.

Some of my pieces in this auction are these





all Watercolour (Pebeo) on 300gsm Canson Watercolour Paper.


Acrylic Mixed Media on Canvas.  Covered in Beeswax
(This might be my favourite.  I love the feel of the beeswax.  Its a lovely finish.
lots of dimension too)

Just have a little look at some of the other Art for sale there this coming weekend.  It looks incredible!



Thanks for dropping in today.  Lovely to see you!  :-)

Project life Cards Video with Shimmerz Mono Tonez

A new Video this week for Shimmerz Paints.


Shimmerz Have released an new line of paint collections.  Mono Tonez have hit the shelves.  These paints are a collection of both old and new colours across several ranges in the Shimmerz Lines. They are all monochromatic colours and they are just cool!

The collection I used in this video are the Gold Tonez.




I used the collection to paint watercolour paper (300 gsm from Canson) and then cut it up and used it to create a Project Life cards for a coordinating spread....

Here is the VIDEO.....


Thanks for watching!


100 faces in 365 days



Well this is fun.
I thoroughly enjoy drawing.

I draw every chance I get.
I love paints and mediums, but I can draw sitting in bed watching TV, if I just use the basics.  Like graphite pencil and some nice paper.  My art books and journals from Canson are my favourites.

I was directed to the FB Group 300 Faces in 365 days, and I LOVE the challenge it is giving me.  Just draw faces.  No pressure, just practise....just fine tuning skills  and thoroughly enjoying the process while I practise!!!

Here are some of my first ones!
