Marabu acrylic sprays and stencil for today’s Crash the Stash

I’m in love with the new Marabu sprays. The colors are fabulous! This was a lot of fun. I started with a random pull of papers that I didn’t think would work, but I love the colors that peak out from under the paint. It adds just enough interest and doesn’t take away from the design of the page.

Enjoy your Crash the Stash video

Canson mixed media journal, Simply Simmons brush, Golden glazing medium, Liquitex gesso, Golden paynes gray, Golden matte medium, general charcoal pencil, Black Liquitex paint marker, Black Liquitex acrylic paint , Golden teal

When strength comes

Sunday-Inspiration-banner-2

This piece is so yummy good with texture….. It makes me happy! This piece was also inspired by a comment from someone who emailed me, They said that I am a strong person!?! Some days I am and some days I’m not. I really believe that more than strong, I am determined, and willing to take a step, even a small one in the direction of my dreams, toward wholeness, toward love, toward growing…..Then …. strength comes.

I hope you enjoy your Sunday Inspiration Video
