The holiday season has started

Hi Friends it has been awhile since my last post. It becoming a challenging around the holidays to keep up on my blog posts as well as FB, IG and twitter. Sometimes I feel like I need 3 of me lol. I’m sure that I’m not alone in that feeling. 

So for those of you who don’t follow my other sites this will be a little bit of a catchup on what I’ve been up to. Let’s see I have been practicing drawing and painting faces. Particularly girls more ina whimsical style. Here is one that I have in progress. 

I did some art journaling before the Thanksgiving holiday using some of my StencilGirl stencils. 

Here is another page I created in my art journal incorporating some more practice in drawing my girls. I used this months StencilGirl Club stencils that are by Jessica Sporn. I just love the stencils !  

And then the holiday was here. We were blessed to have my mom with us this year. Below is a picture of her with my son. 

And then a pic of the 4 of us. 

After all the craziness of the day I was able to take some time and relax in my art studio and do a bit of creating in my art journal. Again I used some of this months StencilClub Stencils as well as one of the Jessica Sporn Designs stencils I already had. 

I took this paper star I had in my stash and created a Christmas ornament out of it. It was super simple. I first painted it with white gesso. Dried it then sprayed it with a translucent paint called Tint-it. Then I searched through my stash for some snowflakes son various sizes. Glued  each one on with my hot glue gun and then punched a hole in the top added some glittery ribbon and it was finished. 

I love how it turned out and it was so easy to make. The best part is I used what I had and didn’t have to go out and buy anything. I would love to hear what everyone’s favorite holiday tradition is out there. If you have time to share with me I would love to hear from you. Keep a watch out as Jessica Sporn Designs is having a blog hop coming up. And I am also a part of this months StencilGirl Voices. So there will be some fun tutorials coming your way. Happy Monday Friends. ❤️❤️❤️

  1. Traditions. Well, when I was young, my parents allowed each of us kids to open one gift on Christmas eve. This event was carefully orchestrated by Mom, and when we opened the gifts, we each found flannel red and white striped pajamas or nightgown. We range in age from myself to two brothers born in the next 5 years, then to my sister, who is 10 years younger than I am, and finally to my youngest brother, who is 15 years younger than I. On Christmas morning, Dad would have us line up on the stairs and snap a photo of us. As you can imagine, we have a lot of these photos from our childhood years.
