Art in any form .... I'm loving it.

I've worked on all my art. Feeling so free.

Yesterday was the Primitive Handmades Mercantile update. Here were the offers I posted and both sold immediately. Thank you Lord !

And another item 
This Fraktur Tulips Punch Needle pillow , is actually a brand new design and will be a new pattern in the next few days. 
I've been delving into painting, mixed media art and art journaling. What fun and freedom I fee doing this. But in the second new page it may be too hard to see, but I used my sewing machine and stitched her little flower on and I also sewed her collar to the dress. 
It's fun learning new techniques ( I never took 1 art class) so this is ALL new to me. 

Here are my newest pages:


Last week I cut out another piece from paper , practicing the German Art of Scherenschnite (paper cutting).

I also played around with making my own stamps or even screen plates for printing designs ony art journal pages. 
Here is a sample of that. 
 drew a new doodle as a freebie for the PHM newsletter but I wanted to share here if anyone isn't signed up for the letter. 
Here it is :

Oh I have one more drawing I did up for my art journal last week. Here it is. And read the quote I added to it. 

This is the beginning sketch of the face. Here is the finished piece. 
All in all it has been a very busy few weeks. But oh so enjoyable. I want to just eat, breathe and sleep art. 
Whether it's my primitive folk art or my crazy mixedrfis with my daughters , who both by the way love it and will be giving Me some stuff competition in the art world soon. Lol.

I love your journal pages and how it frees us to create and have fun. I also want to thank you for the free design, it was too small on the newsletter and I really want to make it and the larger version is perfect.

Good heavens woman! We always knew you were talented but you have just broadened and grown humongous wings gal. Your artwork is even more remarkable. Thank you for the free artwork.

No way I can have that bunny hooked by this Easter but perhaps next. Thanks.
