Sunset Layout by Jen Matott

Sunset1It's summer time and the weather is finally warm enough for us to spend time at the beach (even if it is a lakeside beach) and enjoy each other and the sunsets of Central New York.  This page has a photo of a sunset in Florida but it does remind me of summer days.  I created this layout on a patterned paper that looks like cork.  It gave it a sandy feel and I love the look of natural materials.

Art GRIP® Aquarelle Valentines

 
 Hello! Dana Tatar here today sharing some valentines that I created with the Red Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I used the watercolor pencils along with some Gel Medium to create the string heart embellishments for my valentines. The richly pigmented water-soluble lead from the pencils turns into permanent, waterproof and lightfast watercolor, so my dyed string hearts are just as vibrant as the watercolor on the paper.

IMG_0275

A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under!  I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had:  scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace.  The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs.  One for me to keep and one to give!  That's a win-win gift if you ask me!
