A Stroll Down Main Street...Street sign

Art Impressions A Stroll Down Main Street

Step 1.  Ink G-4033 Charming Sign Post using Marvy Marker Sepia #45 Pull color out using damp brush size #4 or 5

Step 2.  Color back of  E-3381, Small Hanging Basket using Marvy Markers #8, 15, 20 and 100. I used unmounted stamps so a positioner was not necessary. Center hanging basket on sign. Blend with a very damp brush in a tapping motion. Add #45 sepia and water to sign post. Add color to sign using  #17and water.  Use AA-1382 Small Ivy and twine around post. Ink up only 2 flowers from AA-3017 using #86 African Violet and place along ivy.

Step 3. Use #15 to make green cloud under street sign.  Add AAA-1374 teeny tiny grass using #72 pine green. Blend colors with damp brush. Add additional flowers using AA-3017 and #86 African Violet.

Back again

So sorry bloggers.  I have been so sick with bronchitis.  It really knocked me for a loop but I am completely more coughing or sleeping my life away.  My husband said, "when you start doing your art work again I will know you are better".  Well I am back and having to play catch up.  Today I am working on Art Impressions Project 8 A Stroll Down Main Street just released at Cha in January.  It's awesome.  I will be posting it later today.  Please be patient with me.  Also, I have started teaching at The Mercantile in Pendleton, SC. I will be teaching Project 8 on March 2, March  16, and March 30.You can get contact information and class schedules here:
