Hi there! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! Yesterday, Scott and I joined went to a Spring training baseball game with a few friends who were visiting from out of town. The weather was perfect: blue, sunny skies and 80+ degrees. Surely helps explain the sold out stadium. Tina and I are going for a bike ride then April is coming over today so I can help here make her graduation invites which takes place on Friday, May 10th.
I made this mixed media canvas featuring one of my favorite photos of April and Jerry.
I combined a bunch of manufactured flowers, chipboard and metal embellishments from my stash.I painted a layered of Gesso on all the embellishments then I sprayed the flowers with various colors of ink:
Flower and metal embellishments can be a little pricey so I stock up on them when they are 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby.
I also made a birthday card for my dear friend using the same techniques and same color scheme. I created the background by collaging tissue paper on a piece of canvas paper, painting a layer of gesso, applying some molding paste to create texture then randomly sprayed some color.
I added a stamped bird image from Inspired by Spring and duo sentiments from Birthday Sentiments. The flowers were made using Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses, the lock and key were made using Die-namics Keys and Locks.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Unscripted Sketches.
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
