Happy collages

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hello everyone! Happy Hump day. We are in the middle of our spring break here in Wisconsin. Truly it doesn’t seem like spring at all…on Monday we got snow and it’s been cold ever since. Currently it is 28 degrees. We are sooooo ready for some warm weather but I guess we have to wait on that.

Anyways, we are doing lots of fun happy things on Spring break. The first thing we did was go to a Milwaukee Brewers game . This is the best Happy video.  I am not going to share all the happy things we are doing on Spring break until the end of the week. I am going to show you this one project the boys and I did. I am so proud of them.

3 x 3 collages on wood. We stated by doing this presses on the gelli art plate then adding collages to them. Both boys have a great time and their projects turned out awesome.

First up is Ben’s:

Fox mixed media painting



Today, I am sharing this 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch painting of a Fox who is enjoying life on his magic rug. Imagine if you could just stand on a magically multicolored rug and every thing in life was just as it should be. The sky blue, the sun shining, lovely green grass at your feet and gorgeous flowers to smell. Peace and love in your heart.  Well, that is how things work for Farley Fox. The minute Farley steps off the magical rug, he doesn’t know how his journey will go. Does he play it safe on the rug or not?  Stay tuned to find out….Ben (my 8 year old) is writing the story.

Thanks for stopping in to check out my new art. Hope you have an amazing day!

Prayer girl

Hello Everyone,

I have a new painting to share with you today! Life can be a lot to handle sometimes but if we handle it with prayer life is so much more richer.

Fishie Fish

Hello everyone, YES…I am still alive! Summer has been very busy.  Then of course, I get a killer sinus infection (that I am fighting now). You know the kind that half your face swells and your pain level is a 10. I got medication yesterday, hoping it kicks in soon.

Anyways, we have been doing a LOT of fishing. It seems to help keep Ben calm. We have fished in the rain, in the dark and it has been a great time.
