Flashback Friday: Dec 14th 2014 #art #ink #mixedmedia #dnartcorner

Here we are with only 7 days until Christmas and not a snowflake in sight – at least here in the Midwest.

To start this tile, I knew I…

Day Thirty, Creation Thirty

Day Sixteen, Creation Sixteen

Organic patterns and colors combine- oh my! I took a little break from posting, but now I am back and ready to share my latest creation. After all these days I finally had a chance to play with color! Not just any color, but I was able to incorporate my new Derwent Intense pencils in…
