The Polar Bear Plunge

A local lake has an annual, “Polar Bear Plunge” on New Year’s Day.  Too cold for me to plunge into that freezing cold water…

So I decided to take a different approach with a warm-up blind contour drawing of a polar bear wearing a bikini… hehe!

Before I dived in with this one and added some handmade stenciled snowflakes in my art journal…

Hope it gives you a smile today!  🙂

A Snow Globe?

I recently learned how to make handmade stamps using Adhesive Foam Sheets.  I will post how I made them soon!

These are the 2 handmade stamps I used for today’s project:img_9028

And here are my results in my art journal:

I varied the colors of acrylic paints and added a little iridescent gold to the paints…

I finished it by gluing circles of gelli-printed deli paper and adding some purchased snowflake stamps:

It looks a little like a snow globe to me!  I was inspired by a post I did a year ago, The Snow Fell Softly, that you can find here.

Wishing you a Fabulous Friday, Friends!!  🙂
