A Grateful heart

Hello all my lovelies! Kristie Taylor here with another Art anthology journey for you!

Today I am using a brand spanking new product that will come out at CHA, its called

Minx Shimmering inks and they are so yummy and beautiful!

They have gorgeous vivid colors and beautiful shimmer and they are so much fun to play with!

The inks are fluid enough to move freely, but have the perfect amount of viscosity so that they can be moved and blended to create subtle or stunning combinations of color.

Here is my finished canvas:

Dream inspired Bucket List

Hi Everyone…

Monica here today to share my “Bucket List” themed project with you.

My project is based around the dream I have to travel. My husband and I talk a lot about the places we want to be able to visit someday.

I have been looking at this model from one of my magzines for a long time and I knew it was going to be perfect for the image in my mind of how I wanted my project to turn out. I wanted it to look as if she was dreaming of far away places, adventure and the colors she would see when she can travel the world.

Here is the final piece.

Bucket List 18

You can follow my step by step process with my snapguide and make your own Bucket List project. Just click the link below.
