I'm Back

We spent two weeks at camp and I now we are back. I hope you enjoyed the two weeks of post that I had planned. It has been a slow go getting back in to the routine of going to bed at a normal time and being able to sleep late it we want. The girls are really taking advantage of the sleeping late part, me, well not so much. I am such a night owl but no matter what time I go to sleep my body seems to wake up at 7:40 am everyday. This gives me plenty of time to get a few things done around the house before the girls are up an about. I want to share some pictures of our two weeks at camp with you today. I have been busy compiling them into scrapbook pages so that I can hopefully get them into a book before the summer is over. I have a couple of ideas in mind on how I want them. I will be sharing them here soon.
Well without further ado here are the layouts:

Digital Scrapbook Week Day 2

For day two I wanted to feature two pages that I created from the rodeo that we attended last weekend. I took a lot of pictures and I still have more to scrap. All of the elements that were used on these pages were purchased from The Lily Pad Shop. I really enjoy the forums over there and I think that you would enjoy them also. The gallery is very inspiring and I really think you can find some great pages to Scraplift.

Painting Week Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of Painting Week. I hope you have enjoyed the week so far. Today's post will feature one of my latest paintings that I have created for the 10 x 10 series. This painting is bright and colorful and full of lots of fun layers. 

  • 1 10 x 10 primed canvas
  • 5 colors of bright paint (should include black and white also)
  • 1 Large Black waterproof Chisel Tip Marker 
  • A few various sized brushes (not shown)
  • The best tool of all to paint with ( Your fingers and hands)

 Start by adding some messy layers of paint and drippy paint letting each layer dry in between. I f you do not let it dry in between each layer you will only get mud, and there will not be these pretty bright layers of color.

 Next, after letting it dry for at least 3 hours,  I got out my Bic Mark-it Chisel tip marker and drew some shapes that I liked over the messy layers. (I forgot to take a picture at this step because I got so caught up in the process.)

I then started to work my way across the canvas adding a rainbow of colors. These layers are semi-transparent so that the messy layers will show through. This is achieved by using the tube paints that are on the more professional side. 
I then started adding come white back in with a small paint brush. I also added a little bit of drippy white on top to bring out the contrast. (I  didn't worry about the black lines because I will draw them back in, in the final steps.) 

Once I was satisfied with the white contrast, I let it dry over night. Then I added the black lines back with the chisel tip marker.
Here is the completed piece.

Painting Week Day 2

Painting Week Day 2: Painting with markers on canvas. 


  • 1 - 10 x 10 inch canvas
  • 4 Prismacolor Markers of your choice I used a couple of shades of pink, a green, and an orange. 
  • 1 Faber-Castell Big Red Marker

 This canvas is a doodle canvas and I know that it is not technically a painting but since it is on a canvas I thought I would share it.

I started it off with the small flowers and started to fill in the entire surface. I used different flowers that I like to draw. I added in some circles and then outlined them with the large red brush marker. 

This was a really fun canvas to create. I originally planned on this just being a under layer that I would paint over, but it turned out more to my liking and I decided to just work it into a finished piece. I might used the markers to color the edges so that I can just hang it as it is. 

I hope that you are enjoying this series and come back tomorrow for Day 3 of Painting Week
