Blue Owl Postcards

I made these postcards using the owl stamp I carved and my Derwent Inktense blocks.

We didn’t have much of a winter here in central Texas, so the only snow I’ll see  is the sn0w in my art.

I stamped the owls in blue, then added more color with the blocks, and then finally added some more details with my .03 black pen.

A phrase crafted from book text…

Using a water pen to blend the Inktense colors in the background…

Red cheeks and red berries added with the Inktense blocks…

Lots of sparkly glitter in the forest…

 

I used some white ‘Fun Flock”  to add snow to the branch…

Thanks for visiting my blog and looking at my art projects!

Have a great week~

More Mini Canvases with Fiber Paste and Paper Clay

Just like my last mini canvases I covered these with fiber paste.  This time I also sprinkled them with sparkly fine glitter while they were still wet and set painted dried grape stems on top.

My kids are so funny! Every time they finish up a bunch of grapes they smile big and ask, “You want these stems, Mom?”

Of course I do!

I also swirled a spot of blue paint, and I mean a tiny spot, into the wet paste to give it the softest hint of blue.

Then I sculpted a little blue bird from paper clay and painted it the same soft blue when it was dry.   Then I glued it on so that it looks as if it’s perched on a snowy branch…

I added on words cut from book text and brushed some of the paste over the edges.

Here’s a winged heart about to take off in flight (or that’s the look I was going for anyway).

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  Creating things is a much needed outlet for me right now, but it’s even more enjoyable when people come to visit!

Up next…my daughter finally talked me into creating a Valentine’s tree.  More to come!
