Love Hope and Joy

I love making cards. Last night taped down several sheets of watercolor paper and i started painting, spritzing, stencilling and spraying. I used acrylics, watercolor, metallic sprays, just about anything i could reach for.
It was great fun!
I then cut them down and practiced my lettering skills abit.
So if you are looking for an awesome sweet gift, these are for sale.
They are a small boxed card set, with 5 handpainted cards measuring 4x5.5 inches with envelopes that are embossed witha gorgeous whimsical flower print.
The cards are embellished with brads and stardust sparkle pen.
They shimmer and shine. Each card is different and handpainted.

I also found a gem of a book.
I am taking an online lettering class. I really like the class, it has given me huge inspiration to play with my pens again. I have fallen in love with writing all over again. I was a bit disappointed as i thought i would learn specific alphabets but that is not what the class is about. Its ALOT about pens and supplies and how to use them. Luckily i have alot of what the author is teaching about. If i was a newbie this would be very costly or very depressing , depending upon my financial status.
So i went in search of specific alphabets, of course i could search online but i wanted a in hand hardbound book.
Thank goodness for my library.
This book shows you easy pen strokes, gives you lots of vairation.
I love love love it! And being a left hander, i really can't quite get the handle on a Calligrapy pen, so for the cards, i used a felt tip pen.
Not too bad for practicing eh?

Anywho if you are interested in some cards, just leave me a comment. Each cards with be different, as i create each one individually the sets i create come with variation.

Art and MY SOUL

11 years ago, my son Andrew died in my arms.
To say the least my world was shattered.
Now 11 years later, i still grieve. I honestly thought in the beginning
that this grief would just go away over time.
Guess doesn't. It becomes a natural essence to my soul being.
Its always there.
