I'm still kickin'

It's been a very long time since I posted anything but I have been creating and I thought it was about time I got my act together and shared a little of what I've been up to.

I have been working on a few things to offer as a giveaway here on the blog.  I will post some pics of the prizes in a few days. Anyone who is a follower of my blog will be eligible to win one of three tell your friends and let me know who you invited! If your friend(s) becomes a follower, you will be entered twice for the drawings. Once for being a follower and once for inviting a friend. The more friends you invite (that become followers) the more chances you'll have to win!!

I've also been thinking about organizing an Art Doll swap.  If you are interested in joining in please leave a comment and let me know! I think we should have at least 3 participants.  A 6 - 7 inch doll in an altered art style is what I have in mind

Here are few pics of my recent Art Journal pages.

These first pages are in a 9" x 12" Canson mixed media journal. The face is a "paint over" using Prismacolor colored pencils. They work great for coloring over magazine images! No gesso needed!!!

 I turned 50 in March and these pages were done on my birthday.  This one says "50 is the new 29"

 Hubs bought me some Brera Acrylic paints for my birthday and I just had to try them out.  The top one was done on a wet page and the next one was done on a dry page.  Love the vibrant colors!!!

This one is in my Teesha Moore inspired journal.  It's a handmade journal with a watercolor type paper.  The face on this one was done with the Prismacolor colored pencils as well.

That's it for now. Thank you for stopping by!!!

Lovely vibrant pages Teresa - love your saying about 50 being the new 29 - that makes me about 30 then I think - lol.

I'd be interested in your art doll swap - I usually make paper dolls, although have made a few dotee type in the past too.

Awesome Sherry! I'm open to all kinds of Art Dolls. I like the altered dolls because I can use some of the old jewelry and metal stuff I've been collecting. Can also use beads, charms, wood, fabric, etc. I'll try to make something up and post it in a few days...hoping to get more interest going!!! Thanks for the lovely comment. Always appreciated!!! Hugs, Teresa
