Updated Wreath For Outside

I updated the wreath on the front of the house this weekend. I love hydrangeas and Michael's had their bushes on sale. The green ones look a little yellow in these photos but they are green.

New Canvases

July 2012
I have been catching up on the Donna Downey Canvas Create Class I am taking on-line. Really been fun! I am not a painter so it has been out of my box to paint on canvases. We have finger painted, done mixed media, watercolored and did some great background techniques under our paintings. I have learned a lot!
This is a mixed media canvas I did using modeling paste with a wood grain stencil. Really cool.
June 2012
This canvas has tissue tape all over the background then absorbent ground was painted on top. Then I drew in the poppies and watercolored them. I really LOVE this one!

May 2012
This canvas was finger painted. The whole thing! Using Golden fluid acrylics on a black canvas. I very seldom deviate from Donna's projects. I love the colors she puts together to use (always colbalt teal in there) and just makes the paintings easy for me. Well I must say some are harder than others but she really knows what she is doing when it comes to painting. I love her boldness and her not afraid to try new things. If you don't like it, it can always be painted over!

September Mouse Card

Here is the card for September.  Lots of leaves blowing around. Of course here in Texas it's still HOT as you know what! Don't see Fall coming anytime soon. LOL
