"Happy Birthday Colleen Jr"

How fun to do a stamping project again!  While I do love watercolor, 
I've been so deep into it that it was a nice to take a break and make a card!

At long last, the cover for my poetry art journal is finally finished.  It is a basic watercolor 
journal, 140# cold press.  For this cover, I used a combination of gesso, die cuts, stencils
and stencil paste, shimmering mist sprays, Adirondack reinkers, ribbon and gems.

"Dedicated to Miss Chloe"
It appears I am falling in love with doing portraits!  This is one of my nieces, 
and it looks just like her!  The challenge in a portrait is capturing that one
line or shadow that makes the the face "her", and her alone!  It is so exciting watching
the personality arrive, brushstroke by brushstroke.

"Colleen Junior"
Portrait of Colleen's graduation.  Original watercolor art,
using one of her graduation pics.  Truly a challenge, as this
is one of my first attempts at a portrait!

"Chewee - Zoned Out"
How can anyone love an animal so much?  Here lies the
sassiest, sauciest, and silliest spoiled brat ever!  Says he
does not wish to be disturbed.  Imagine that!
