Mixed Media play on canvases

I've been making small canvases (4" by 4") using mixed media techniques.  Here are my five pink ladies.

I used products made by a few of my favorite artists:  Lynne Moncrieff, Seth Apter and Kristin Peterson.  A tiny splash of Finnabair's Glass Glitter, paints by Jane Davenport and additional inks by Tim Holtz.  It doesn't get any more fun than playing with all of this from my stash.  Oh, I brought out my embroidery threads and needles, back in the 1970's I used to do all sorts of needlework.  It's like riding a bike you never forget how to do it even after a few decades.  I need to do more of that!

Thanks for stopping by ~ hugs ~ Renee

Altered Paintbrushes in the works

I've been working on a series of altered paintbrushes for the past week or so.  Each one has her own name and story, of course.

The longer they sit on my desk the more I keep adding to each one.  So, what's on your work table right now?  Stay cool, the temps here have been consistently in the 90's and the humidity is right up there too.  It's a good time to stay indoors and craft.
