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. ❤️❤️❤️
