Merry Christmas 24

Hi! It's been awhile since I've blogged. Just busy living the American dream :) ... Enjoying my family, the holiday season, working, traveling, exercising and working on my brush strokes. I am trying to get a jump start on making Christmas tags and cards so I joined along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where Dawn has challenged us to create Double Layered Gift Tags:
I made a collection of tags and coordinating cards featuring a variety of PTI dies and stamps:
All the Christmas cards feature one of the fun stamps from the PTI Winter Swirls  stamp set:

I also need a masculine birthday card for a dear friend:
I've been painting a few birds here and there. Here is a sweet male cardinal on an 8" x 8" canvas painted using oils:

and I've also been painting various flowers. Here is a poppy garden inspired by Nancy Medina's e-course on a 12" x 12" canvas also painted in oils: 

I'm linking my paintings up to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be hopping around later this evening to see what my creative friends have been up to :)
Be Sweet ;)

Autumn wishes 22

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, October 18, 2016 @ 9:57 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Today I'm sharing an autumn themed project that I was inspired by the beautiful color palette for the October Prima's Product Pick challenge:
I created a mixed media style tag which features a variety of Prima products including: texture, pretty embellishments and lots of shimmery details:
I made the pumpkin using chipboard and steel bladed dies, assembled then applied Prima crackle texture paste. For a bit of shimmer, I applied Prima Metallique Gold Rush acrylic paint. I embellished with various Prima flowers, a resin owl and glittery gold leaves:
To create the background, I applied a coat of Prima white gesso once dry, I added texture using a Prima stencil and Prima texture paste. After that layer was dry, I adhered Prima pebbles and Prima Roman numeral embellishments. For color, I painted on Prima purple mica powder:
For the final step, I splashed on the following Prima products: white gesso, Metallique Pink Blush and  Metallique Gold Rush acrylic paints:
I'm also joining along with the current Curtain Call Inspiration challenge where the theme is Glittery Gourds:
and I'm linking to this week's Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
