Do you love to color?

It appears that the post below worked. All-righty-then.

I have always loved to color, ever since I was big enough to hold a crayola...I still love to color and a lot of my friends told me that they still love to color, but they couldn't find anything out there to color...wala! the "Wild Haired Ladies" coloring book..."A Creative Experience for Adults" was created. I drew the pictures and found the most wonderful Publisher ever...Falling Star Publications...Donna Dove is the best editor and publisher you could ever want...We hope to start working on the #2 coloring book in 2011.

MY coloring book for adults "Wild Haired Ladies" is available on a pre-published sale over on my website the sale price is $10.95 + S&H, this price is good until October 30, the launch date is November 1 and the price will be $12.95 + S&H. So if you would like to take advantage of the sale, just go to my website click on the box that says coloring books and you will find the "Wild Haired Ladies" and a shopping cart. Easy

Wild Haired Ladies coloring book

I am going to try and make this blog entry thing work one more time...I guess if it doesn't I will delete this blog and create another one with a differt program than this one...this is really frustrating.

What is going on?

I have not been posting to this blog very much because I have a new website and the fact is Google has "jacked" with the choices of how the posting is made, and it is so much easier to post to my website and to my FaceBook Fan Page that I just don't take the time to post here...I hope if you are a follower of this blog you will visit my website and my FaceBook pages. Hopefully you have my Etsy shop as a favorite and you can see my jewelry there. I am not closing this blog because hopefully Google will make some changes that are more user friendly in the future and I will post here more often.

Hopefully you will visit me on my website and my Etsy Shop You will be able to get to my FaceBook page from either of these links...

New Web Site

This is the home page of my new web site...I am so excited to get it launched...thanks to my friend and computer Guru...Christy Sobolewski...she is the most awesome web designer on the planet.

Hopefully you will check it out and let us know what you even has a contact page so feel free to send a comment. For some reason Blogger is not letting me enter a link so if you would just type in in your address line it will take you to the site.

We are adding art work and new stuff it is a labor of love and a work in progress. I guess you can tell I am really excited about this, and of course you can still find my jewelry on Etsy (New Spring Line is being photographed this week) should be up next week.

A new collage...

This week is the 1st week of Lent and the assistant pastor has ask different people in the church to create a piece of art that represents the chosen Bible text for that week, so I went first (because I am so shy you know?lol) my Bible verses were Matthew 26:36-46....this is when Jesus went to the Garden of this is my interpretation of that scripture.
The canvas is 18"x24"...I used Perfect Paper for texture and then did layers of color using Golden Glazes... I had printed transparencies of the images that I wanted to use, and I trimmed them to fit in the areas that I had chosen...I applied more Perfect Paper around the edges of the transparencies so that it didn't look like I had just "glued" them on...I wanted their to be areas of texture and areas of smoothness...I used some glaze over the transparencies...then I used a Qtip to remove some of the glaze so it made more dramatic high lights...after applying 3 lays of glaze, I wrote the quotes from Jesus prayers on top of the last layer and then I then added the leaves and flowers for a real 3-D garden effect...I think it turned out pretty well. A lot of people at church liked it...:)
