Painted Ladies, etc.

 I've been grabbing time in the art room when I can lately.... and I worked on some of these girls from Junelle as taught in Christy Tomlinson's 12 Artsy Ornaments of Christmas class last December.
the girl at the top left below is more influenced by Teesha Moore!!! ha!
and I recently took Theresa McFayden's Letter Whimsey class....
 I still need LOTS of practice with my lettering..
but I did the page below for a Challenge I've set up in Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group...
 each week we will have a new scripture
 and the challenge is to do something artistic with it,
 either a journal page, an ATC, a canvas, stitching, etc....
and
hopefully share it with that group.

Below is mine for this week...... and I added a light effect to it from Pixlr!

You have a lovely Blog. Thanks for stopping by mine and leaving your compliments. Your art is terrific; your lettering is wonderful and I am in awe of it. I have such trouble with that.

I'm signed up for Christy and Junelle's March class - can't wait!

Oh how i adore the fact that you are working on Christmas in February! You are a genius to begin so early [ignoring the fact that this is a catch up project]!!!

These are fun! Love the colors! Also think your Christian PA project is delightful! Such a fun way to artfully compile meaningful Scripture! xo, Sue
p.s. i am now on about my 13th try of trying to prove i'm not a robot. i am beginning to think I AM a robot. lol!
