Hope 37

Happy May! There's a new challenge up on The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog! This month we are asking you to create a project featuring BUTTERFLIES AND BLOOMS:
Here's a trio of close-ups of my project featuring butterflies and blooms:
I created an 8" x 8" canvas project featuring a variety of wooden embellishment butterflies along with several metal flower trinkets:
To create this project basically, I adhered strips of lace, adhered the embellishments in place, applied gesso to EVERYTHING then randomly applied various colors of acrylic paints:



I'm linking my project to Paint Party Friday:

Love 11

Mona Pendleton | @ 8:55 AM | , ,

Hi! Today I have a mixed media style canvas to share featuring a variety of beautiful Prima products including a couple of my favorite Prima resin pieces. I created the background with several stamps, gesso, a stencil and Color Bloom Sprays.
Once the background was dry, I embellished with resin pieces, die cut foliage, beautiful blossoms and wood embellishments:

Hi! Tonight I was in the mood to get crafty and create an altered shabbified tresor box  for the Creative Carte Blanche April's Art Adventure where the theme is to alter a cigar box. I combined a variety of Prima products including pretty flowers, resin pieces, die cuts, crackle paste, acrylic paint and so much more!
Here's the before photo:
and here's the after altered photo:

happy birthday 26

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, April 19, 2016 @ 9:56 AM | , , ,


Hi! Hope you are having a great week so far! Today I have a birthday card to share that I made for a dear friend featuring pretty papers from the Prima Vintage Emporium collection.
The butterfly was made using a Spellbinders butterfly die set that I've had since 2010 when I was on the Spellbinders DT and probably has been retired since but in my mind, one can never have too many butterflies :) 
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current CAS(E) this sketch sketch challenge:

A luminous rose lesson 24

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, April 17, 2016 @ 1:32 PM | , ,


Hi! I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! This morning Tina and I went for a hike on San Tan mountain which is located nearly in my backyard. I was practicing my painting skills last night as I painted along with a Gary Jenkins video to create this 12" x 12" piece:
This lesson was all about luminosity. I admittedly got a bit carried away as I was having fun painting all the foliage :) LOL Orange is my least favorite color and wish I had used more yellow in the background. Practice, practice, practice...

Yellow Roses 28

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, April 16, 2016 @ 1:36 AM | , , ,


Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have an 8" x 8" oil painting to share featuring yellow roses. I'm trying to take the time to practice painting but sometimes it just doesn't happen.
I'm enjoying the process as I practice in search of my own style. This painting combines strokes and techniques inspired by two of my favorite floral artists: Gary Jenkins and Nancy Medina. 




 For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Color Throwdown:
