Doing A Little "Flying".

Hi friends!
School is in full swing. We are all pretty groggy in the mornings now. Sweet Brenna sounded a little confused today when she was explaining to me that she was still tired when she got up. How does one explain "good by summer, hello school schedule?" I guess we just work through it..

Today, I'm spending some time in the 'ol art room today.
And the day is SPEEDING by!!
I am taking the She Had Three Hearts class from  Christy Tomlinson, and I have glue and paint and stencils and alcohol ink spread out everywhere.

This piece isn't finished yet, and I'm loving the way it's turning out. 
The colors are making me happy.

The bird shape is one from Heidi Swapp. I got it in a bag of items from a class. 
I'm stumped as to what it is..not a sticker, but the back is sticky. The shape is plain white and it feels like a vellum. I thought maybe it was a rub-on, but that wasn't the case. It's plain white on a plain white background and you peel off the bird shape.
Are you as confused as I was now?
 I used it as a mask and it ended up tearing off some of the paper when I peeled it off, but I still liked it and covered the inside of the form with alcohol inks and some paper.

Sometimes I just love little corners of a page the best:

Don't you wonder why some days just "work"? 
I wish I could bottle the formula for a great art day.

No complaints here today!

Hope your day is just as good.


  1. Lovely as usual, Lynn. When you bottle that good art day stuff let me know!!! I definitely have days when I hit a creative wall!!

  6. Oh, I had wanted to take that online class by Christy but she and I kind of came to the conclusion that I wouldn't be able to understand much of it. Let me know if that seems to be the case. Fabulous artwork!
