hey sista girl, here you go!

been busy today in the studio…couldn’t find my darn glazing medium.  where the devil did that go?  anyway, i made do & i finally completed my spring inchies for the swap (hosted by wanda aka crafty mule on flickr) over in the faerie zine (which btw was created by my lovely pal, lisa).  i had to make 50 of them!  but it wasn’t so bad…i took a 9×12 piece of watercolor paper & created a background using acrylic paints (while talking to this sista girl, hehehe!) & then over stamping with rubber stamp swirls & polka dots. 

i also made this atc for wanda as a little thank you 

 i used the same painted background as i had with the inchies.  the femme image is from mata art.

i meant to post these pieces i made for the zne design team april product review.  it’s just been so busy around here.  we were given some collage sheets from charming sam to try out.  here’s what i made with some of the images.  it’s a darker palette than what i’m used to, but i made it work (to borrow a phrase).  🙂


this was a challenge for me, but i think i did alright.  the collage sheets were fun to use.  & the heavy cardstock that the images were printed on took wet media well, as i used glazes & washes.  the paper did not warp or fade.  that’s a huge selling point.  🙂

also, i finally, finally got my marie pages done for lisa’s book collaborative, which she wants to publish through quarry.  i am grateful & honored to have been invited to be a part of this exciting project!  having done research on marie for this other art collaborative  i’m participating in has really helped me with creating my pages for lisa.  i hope she approves. 🙂

welp, that’s all the art for now…i’ve got some others waiting in the wings.  until next time, have a great nite! xoxo mary ann
