Art of Spring

I am a class junkie....I LOVE taking online art classes!!!!!  One of the classes I am taking is Junelle Hallstrom Jacobsen's Art of Spring Class She is doing this class in conjunction with Christy Tomlinson.  We are learning to sketch ducklings, bunnies, and all things related to spring and I wanted to share some of my sketches....

I am loving the ducklings but my bunnies not so much.  Now I have to paint them....yikes...I am nervous about that but keep telling myself "there are no mistakes, just learning experiences":)

Thanks fro hopping go CREATE:) 


I entered a Steampunk ATC swap at ScrappyHappiness
I am new to steampunk, but thought it would be fun to try....I have to say I really enjoyed making these cards.  I used my Gelli Plate to do my backgrounds and used my Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut my gears.  I embossed my cut gears with various embossing powders. I added one of Tim Holtz's sprocket gears to each card.  I will be use more steampunk in my artwork in the future:)

I also was part of a butterfly tag swap @ ScrappyHappiness and here is my tag...

Gelli Plate FUN

I made time to play with my Gelli Plate....I have to say this thing is addictive.  Each print comes out different so it is so exciting to see what comes up.  Here are just some of my prints. 


This last picture is done on coffee filters. I love the bright bold colors:)  Now I just have to incorporate them into my art projects.
