This month the hash tag is  #LoveWinterArt which I created a canvas using Andrea Gomoll Christmas Digi Pack. I love her whimsical creations.  So, I created this canvas which you can see the process on my Smash Up Sunday Stream the 6th.
Please be sure to check out the other great videos in the Creative Art Collaboration using the #LoveWinterArt on Youtube.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Journal Page ~ Andrea Gomoll Whimsical Holiday digis

I created these two pages using Andrea Gomoll Whimsical Holiday Digi Pack.  I used acrylic paint for the background and my mini triangle gelli plate to create the Christmas tree.   I added textured paste, neo II’s to color the reindeer, stickles  and silver, gold and white sharpie water base pen to create the splatters.  Added glitter snowflakes and the jingle bells.    Here are some closer looks:
Here you can see I added some snowflake LED lights, so fun!  I created this on my Ustream if you would like to see the process.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Try It On Tuesday~Create A Scene~#Thankful4Art

Sorry, I have been missing but had some personal problems that needed to be worked out. 

So, for my Try It On Tuesday (a day late) is create a scene:


I used Andrea Gomoll new holiday digi’s to create this page.  Also, the cute birdies are Dina Wakely’s from Ranger.  The snowflake love pendant die is Memory Box, the tree is made from paper towel, I used gelli plate deli paper to create the hat and coat and I used Finnabairs new snowflake paste.  My background is done with blue delta paint and I stamped the hexagon with my new mini gelli plate minis.  It was fun to create and you can see it on Ustream  as well as my Youtube. 

I have also, created this for @Thankful4Art as without so many other artist sharing their talent I would not be able to create such a pretty page. 

I hope you visit Try It On Tuesday to see the other amazing creations from our design team and I hope you play along.  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Black Journal~Lindys Gang Spray & Powders

My black journal from Ranger that I did on my Smash Up Sunday stream:


I used the new Lindys Stamp Gang Drop Dead Diva sprays and embossing powders to create this page.  I also, used the gears from Gina Designs.  With the help of my FIB’s (friends in the box) I added this monkey that was an owl thanks to Dar for suggesting it…lol  Loved how she turned out. 

Thanks for joining me and it was so much fun.  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

#ThinkPinkArt~Oct. 15th-18th Creative Art Collaboration

This month for the hash tag Creative Art Collaboration is in honor of Breast Cancer Month.  #ThinkPinkArt 
I decided to do a canvas for a friend, Patti Tolley Parrish as she is a cancer survivor as well as her husband and dog.  I have several girlfriends who have had breast cancer, but I think for Patti it is a lot for one family to handle.  So, this is the canvas I created for her dog, Babe:
The background is made from handmade mulberry paper which I got at AC Moore and then had some old Making Memories scrapbook paper.  I hand draw the fire hydrant and created babe with extra thick Mulberry paper.  I also, drew the collar ribbon and used Patti’s stencil Geo circles from istencils.  Patti has a great line of stencil she designs for istencils.  I forgot to take photos on the way so, I have just close-ups…lol
So, be sure to check out the other great artist who have created for this #ThinkPinkArt on YouTube.  Have a great weekend.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥
