Creative Heart Monday - Strong Women





Happy Creative Heart Monday......on Wednesday!

First, I'd like to apologize for missing two Mondays.  I've had a crazy couple of weeks.  My parents have been in and out of doctor's appointments and the hospital.  Even though they are only in their 70's (so not super old yet LOL), I still feel it necessary to accompany them to their important appointments and, of course, when they're in the hospital.

On top of that, I have another art festival this weekend and have been trying to make some new art, get organized, packed, etc.

So today's video is actually a project that I did for Gel Press a couple month's ago for their blog.  The video was never "public", so you might not have seen it.  If you did already see it, I've also put another (very small) project video up on YouTube.

So here we go with the first one...........................











................and here's the second one................












I hope to get back on track next week.  Thank you for your patience.

Have a great week!
PEACE!

Creative Heart Monday - Mixed Media Crumpled Paper Technique





Happy Creative Heart Monday

My friend, Jenifer and her daughter, Alicia bought a cute, little piece of art for me from a local art show.  I noticed that the little painting was made on crumpled paper.  I wanted to give it a try.

Here we go.............



Supplies
Canson XL Watercolor Paper 11" X 15" 
Copy Paper
Tissue Paper
Fusible Interfacing  
Brown Craft Paper 
Liquitex White Gesso 
Black Charcoal Pencil  
Bombay India Inks 
Golden Glossy Gel Medium

It's great to try something new.  I have stacks of old magazines by Somerset and Cloth, Paper, Scissors.  When I can't think of anything to do, I'll pull out one of these and search for inspiration. Sometimes, it's just a color....sometimes a style or technique.

For different projects that I don't put on YouTube, check out the CeeCeeART Patreon.

Have a great Monday and a wonderful week!

PEACE
