ARTCHIX AND NEWBIES RULE!!!

Welcome all!!  Thank you for visiting me today.  I am taking part in Debbie Doo's newbie party, as usual, and she is so AWESOME!!  Hosting this party, every single week, for all of us who are new to bloging.  Helping us make friends, and see how others blog.  It has been so wonderful for me.  You rock Debbie!

OK! So, I am going to show you an art piece I made for a challenge at My Artisticlife.  This is the challenge blog for ARTchix Studio.  ARTchix Studio is a really AWESOME place for all of your mixed media needs.  They have fabulous collage sheets, shrines, windows, ATC items, jewelry making stuff, everything!!  And, I bought some awesome stuff there last year, and didn't realize they had a blog.  duh.  This bi-weekly challenge blog is where my art piece comes in.  The theme, is flowers.  Use that in any way you wish.  Here is what I did.
I used a 4x4 inch canvas, and put book paper down first.  Then, I wrote on it with 2 different markers spring words.  I then gave it a thin coating of white paint.  Then came my favorite part, new spray inks from Ranger!  I just got them a week ago.  Red and purple spray inks.  Glimmer spray inks!  So, I repurposed some old chipboard by giving it the same treatment as the canvas. I put a face from an ARTchix collage sheet I had on the flower.  I finished it off with inspiring words on it's petals.  I applied the flower and bird  with foam dots.  I stamped the word "bloom", and cut it out and put it on the bottom of the canvas.  I went over the flower that was on the bookpaper with a micron black marker, and outlined and made dots on the piece with a white sharpie!  Spring fun, spring art, spring time.  They all make me smile, especially after this long winter.

Go have fun checking out the other blogs, and come back soon!  As usual, if you follow me, I promise to follow you back!
