So, I had all of that wood that I came home with this week, just sitting in the garage waiting for me to get inspired… and yesterday , it happened…the inspiration came…

I pulled out a book that I had gotten by one of my favorite mixed media artist, Kelly Rae Roberts. I love her style… then I got my paints out, set my card table up in the den and started on them…. I have a room upstairs, just for my crafts and sewing but sometimes, I just spread it all out in the den so I can work down here after dinner when Tom gets home.

If the mess bothers him, he doesn`t ever say anything to me. So that is our little system!

I started with the wood pieces, and collaged them with some scrap book paper.
Then, I pulled out some new oil paint sticks that Kelly said she used and I ordered, to try them out.

Well, let me tell you, I love those things!! Who knew?!! They blend so pretty, the only thing, they have to dry for 24 hours after you are finished… that is not really a problem, just had to put them aside and wait til the next day to finish up some details…. then today, I played with some more looks. I don`t think I will ever tire of painting and drawing angels!!

They still have some work to add to them, words and sayings, guess I will think about that tomorrow… For now, good night! Glad to be a part of Sunday Ske
