More Gelatos!

I’m really enjoying  learning how to use gelatos!   I’m trying them out in my art journal and wondering what kind of paper I’m supposed to be using.  What paper is best to use with gelatos?

I’m going to keep watching YouTube videos and experimenting …  but in the meantime here are some more examples from my ever-present art journal! (I’m carrying that thing around and collaging and drawing and painting my heart out!).

This is my favorite so far!


My next favorite:


One of my first attempts at flowers!


More flowers!


I like this, not going to try to improve this … afraid of screwing it up.


A background using gelatos and a stamp that I carved myself.    Don’t know what to do with this one!






Art Every Day Month – 2013 – Day 13

I’ve been thinking and wondering why I don’t write more with my posts.  I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t get ‘wordy’ on my posts because I’m just private.   I want to be like everybody elsst and write cool posts with meaning and insight.  I guess I’ll just have to work up to that.

The reason I started the blog up again was I needed something for me to focus on.  A commitment to AEDM would mean that I had a purpose, a goal.  It would (and does) keep me focused on doing something good.  Its not much but its a place to share what I work on and hopefully get feedback.

I was looking through my art journal this morning and took a bunch of pictures to share.   The pictures are dark but this is something I’ve done that I like.

(What kills me is how dark my photos are turning out!!)










Art Every Day Month – 2013 – Day 11

I’ve been in an Art Tizzy. I guess its just Monday and I’ve got non-art-related stuff to do today.  So I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

I was doodling last night with black paper and white gel pen and came up with this while I was watching TV.


I was trying to watch Killing Kennedy on the National Geographic Network and I fell asleep at like 8:30! I was going to try to do more.   So my intentions were good, but my eyelids would not cooperate!


Art Every Day Month – AEDM – Day 23

Here are more pictures from my art journal.   The last one is blurry so I’ll apologize for that right off.    I’d like to have something different tomorrow.

Happy Shopping, Everyone!  Enjoy!  I do. not. plan. on shopping today.  Lots of people love it but i don’t think it’s for me.  The thought of it makes me so tired.  I wonder if everyone would mind getting something from Amazon this year??




Art Every Day Month – AEDM – Day 15

Well,  November is rockin’ right along.   Trying to put something out every day has been a challenge for me.   I tend to work on stuff and if I’m not done in a day or two,  I’ll move on.   It drives me crazy that I’m like that.  I’ve been working on a painting that I’ll post a picture of tomorrow.   Its colorful,  going in my kitchen and I’m really happy about how its turning out.   And its even taken me more than two days!
