New Altered Bottles

I have been busy in my studio mixing up all kinds of art. Since taking an online class by Michael DeMeng called Color Washes, I have been trying the techniques on anything I can get my hands on. Here I have added some molding paste and several color washes. This is a fun way to make an aged looking bottle. Add a few ribbons and flowers, and it looks like they may have come from grandmother's attic.

After I took the photo, I played with some overlays in Photoshop Elements. One of the overlays is actually one of the practice canvases I made for the Color Wash class.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope you can spend the day with the ones you love.

This is a digital collage I made for the Paperwhimsy Inspire Blog, where you can find all the individual elements listed along with many other samples of Valentine's Day sample.

I had hoped to be posting much sooner. I have so many new things to share. I should be getting some pictures to post soon.

I have been busy reorganizing my art space, and finding old projects to finish.
