Today I am thankful from my November with Gratitude:

 Nov 12- Thankful for the part of my job that allows me to hold a paint brush and share my artistic side with an incredible group of peope who weekly have inspired, pushed me and supported me.  My hope is to always do the same!…….thanks you Mixed Media Mondays with Tracy Weinzapfel Studios!


I am ever so thankful to hold the paintbrush and work with some awesome new products (thanks DecoArt) and just play!  That artist side in me needs it and there are so many that share that passion with me.  For years I doodled and painted in secret and now I get paints that come to my door and I share it with friends and family!  And I still get nervous every time I do!  I wonder if any other artists feel that way!

So Monday together we gathered and I painted this…..



There was no plan but a box full of fun new paints I got from DecoArt to inspire me…..



Gesso, Paints, Glamour Dust Glitter Paint, Extreme Glitter Paint & Stencil: DecoArt, Ink: Marvy Heritage, Charcoal Pencil



This recorded in Two Parts……PART I




The great thing about this page is it is all blinged out and no big mess of glitter because it is all in the paints!  Hard to capture that bling in photos……



I am not sure why I got right in that holiday spirit but I guess it is because I have family coming into town next week and that is the start to the holiday marathon for us.  I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving and the holidays! 

Just a reminder that next week we are off as it is time I take some vacation, even creatively sometimes you need that down time to group and rekindle the spirit!  So we meet in two weeks:
