Sad to have completed the Spirit Wings class by Kelly Rae Roberts. It pushed me to try some different mediums to colour the faces and also made me use collage which is something I didn't really like to use in my mixed media work. Upcycled an old canvas for this angel. I am planning to use what I have learned to create a large canvas....watch this space!

Although the summer holidays are well and truely over I am still sharing art work I created.
This angels face was created using Winsor Newton Oil bars which was a new medium for me but I liked how she turned out. On the page a halo seemed to appear around my truth angel and I found a very appropriate quote for the time of year.

The online course I am taking by Kelly Rae Roberts is really helping me to stay motivated with art journal. Really pleased with how my latest angel turned out and the colours I ended up using. Her face was created using gelatos.

Continuing some art journaling inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts Spirit Wings online course.
I have used Big brush pens for a long time but always on top of paint, so it was great to try something different on this face and blend them straight onto gel medium surface. I am really pleased with how she turned out and can't wait to get started on the next lesson.

And time to get out some stash I haven't used for a while. Out came the alcohol inks and also some perfect pearls. It is coming toward the end of the term and so I need a couple of thank you cards.
I am entering my card into the following challenge:

Made these cards on the hottest day here in the UK so far in 2017...thought colouring snowmen might make me feel a little cooler. No such luck, went non traditional colours but really pleased with how they turned out.
