I didn't have time to create a digital file today. I am busy putting together a birthday party for my youngest daughter. She turns 13 today!! I can't believe my baby is a teenager already. Where does the time go? I will be back next week with a new free digi. I hope you are having a great week!!
I found this graphic @: (not entirely sure she created it, but in case she did...) http://leanadelle.wordpress.com
Here is today's free digital file. I hope you like Mouse Cute lol. Remember, if you take one of my files, please leave me a comment. I also love seeing my digital files in action, so if you create something using one (or many ;) please show me.
I started out gessoing my pages and then adding red, orange and yellow with my hands. The bottom needed to be lightened up a little so I threw a little white in there while the other paint was still wet.
I am trying to learn to write with a script paintbrush. It's harder than I thought. Practice, practice, practice. Oh, I also used some washi tape that I have had hanging around forever. Thanks for taking a look.
I hope you enjoy today's digi. Remember, if you take one of my files, please leave me a comment. These digital files make fantastic coloring pages. My 12 year old daughter loves them. If you create something with my digis, please leave me a link in the comments section so I can come check it out.
I hope your day is going well. We had such nice temperatures here in Ohio the last few days. It was great to feel the sun warm on my skin and not have to wear a heavy coat for a change. Enough about the weather though. Here is my latest Art Spark Wednesday video. You won't believe where this page started from it's finished product. WHEW! I hope you enjoying watching!
Hello everyone! Here is today's free digital file. I hope you like her. If you take one of my files, please leave me a comment and let me know you were here.

I bought my kids a new box of Crayola Crayons the other day. Getting a whiff of new crayons took me right back to elementary school. I love the smell.
So, I told my 12 year old daughter that when I was a kid my mom would grate up some old crayons between 2 sheets of waxed paper and iron it just long enough to melt the shavings. Then we would cut them down to whatever size we wanted and TADA you had a pretty bookmark. So, that is what we tried with our old crayons, and here are the results. My daughter used a crayon sharpener to shave her crayons and I used a serrated knife. The knife was a lot faster. Oh and put down some paper towels under and over your waxed paper when you iron it. In case any seeps out. You want to protect your iron and your work space. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you give this a try.
......I will try to get to that today. Instead I have some artwork to share from last Saturday evening, when me and my 12 year old daughter sat down at the dining room table to watercolor. We also got my oldest daughter (17) and her friend to join us and eventually my oldest son (22) sat and water colored with us too. Here are some of the results of our time together:
My 12 year old's:
(this one was gifted to me by my daughter, I'm so lucky!! Love it)
Oldest daughter's friend (18):
Oldest son's (22):
See the splatter on the bottom to the left? He dripped paint on the paper and used a straw to blow it around. This started this next part!
I dropped paint on paper and my oldest daughter blew it around with a straw:
it looked like a flower so I added the stem.
Then we used more colors:
and that last one, lead me to this:
I used a black fine point sharpie to add the little circles and and a white gel pen for the white areas you see.
In another completely unrelated note, did you know if you place one end of a straw in your mouth and the other end under your armpit and blow, it makes a fart noise? Yep, completely unrelated. lol.
