Sea Art

I drew this Sea Urchin shell over my handwriting in the post I recently showed you here:  Your Handwriting As Art – Part 1  I used pencil, white gel pen, watercolor pencils and a black Micron pen:

I sewed them together with thread on my sewing machine.

I plan to write a short note on the back and give it to a friend.

What sparks your creativity?

Cheers! 🙂

Leaf Notes

I know I left you hanging yesterday, like a leaf on a tree… LOL!  So here it is – the moment you have been waiting for – a before and after photo of my watercolor leaves!  😉

I finished them with gesso and added some “leaf” notes for my hubby and myself with pencil.  I thought these little reminders would be great to put on the fridge or left in unexpected places.  We all like to feel loved and appreciated!  🙂

The other images are gift tags I’m making for another project.  I painted these on both sides with watercolor and the gesso – here is an example of one I made for myself:

I added a little glitter to these tags too.  Other ideas are tucking them into a card for a friend, give as a bookmarker or use as a place setting at a special dinner, like Easter.  They are fun to write a message of inspiration on one side and a person’s name on the other side but you could do whatever you want.

Speaking of shapes, here are my leftover stencils:

One of the nice things about gesso is that it works as a glue so was able to complete their shapes by gluing there openings closed.  I could then use the negative and positive shapes on my gelli-printing plate!

The above is an example of using my positive and negative shapes with layers of Golden Fluid Acrylic paints.  Aren’t they just AWESOME?!

I will show you more of my gelli prints tomorrow – oh, the colors!!!  :-)))

Happy Creating!

P.S.  If you were to leave a “leaf” note for yourself or someone, what would it say?!  I’d love to hear from you!
