an Artful beginning!!

Ok here are some pictures of some of my painted papers. The goldish brown one with the red around it is one of my favorites. It looks a lot different/better in person. I also like the really dark one that is mainly green with blue and red in the center...I just wish it was a couple shades lighter. Hopefully someone can tell me how to make future pictures lighter. (although I do like the bold ones!) In the past I have worked with pencils, charcoal, pastels, and water color...never acrylic! The way it spreads though makes me smile. In fact every evening I have played even when it is just applying gesso I get a sappy smile on my face!

I had a BLAST at Michaels....spent too much money...shhhhh (some women buy shoes;) but with the 30% coupon it knocked a lot off the price. NOW to create something using these!


  1. Your papers are very very gorgeous! You will be able to make some really great things with these. Your poetry journal is going to be awesome. Can't wait to see it.

  2. I admit it... today I made more paper... when I printed my "to do" list last night, I realized my papers were too dark to print so I figured... mwahhh mwahhhh I would need to make more for that specific purpose. ^giggles^
