Art Journal Journey - August Nature's Wonders

I'll give Gill right, I am amazed constantly how we sometimes abuse our nature and it survives so we still can see the most beautiful flowers and wonderful birds and they can find food in the heart of our big cities.

Rapunzel

Here is my suggestion for the techniques I have tried in Ever After the first month. Tamara Laporte, Andrea Gomoll and Annie Hamman are fantastic to show their own style. I have taken different techniques and displayed them on my interpretation of the fairy tale Rapunzel ...

In my garden there is - Art Journal Journey - July 2016

The sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. Many years ago we had a very small garden, and we had utilized it totally, there were blackberries, elder flower, an apple tree and our sunflowers could be over 2 meters high. A year gave blackberry bush almost 8 kg of berries that we pickled. Since it has only been for a trip to the city parks where the gardener is adept at many beautiful perennials and flowers that we can admire.




Today we have a small balcony with a wooden bench that we can sit on and early morning we hear the birds singing. We enjoy the weather on the wooden bench and can use it until to October if the weather permits.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I wish you all a good summer.
Hugs, Susan

Back to School - The Paper Crafting magazine


Hi, Susan from the Guest design team, this is my post for Back to School on the Paper Crafting Magazine. Normally I do not work with design papers, to me they seem finished and it must be my imagination that is not enough. I find it hard to work on because I am to mixed media, yet I buy it because I think they are very interesting and beautiful.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
I wish you a nice day. Hugs, Susan

Snow White - Ever After lesson #3

Snow White with Annie Hamman. Really beautiful colors you can get from the 3 main colors and white, it is a balance to mix these colors! The technique only to paint in these three colors, except for the lip and apple painted with red mixed with yellow, was a good learning.






Thanks for visiting my blog, and I wish you a good day.

Beauty and the Beast - Ever After lesson #2

Andrea Gomoll has chosen Beauty and the Beast to show her technique. I've tested it here in my example. In this lesson, I also get the opportunity to try the whimsical shapes with very large eyes, and it is fun and challenging! Like the first lesson, there is a lot of technique, and unfortunately it's hard to catch it all on my photo.




Thank you for stopping by my blog and soon a new adventure is coming up.
