I love days like Monday in my Studio!  Designed my next class and then it was Mixed Media Monday!  Plus we finished the last page in my 9 X 12 Strathmore Art Journal!  You gotta love that and I will be sharing that as that book represents all those wonderful Monday nights with you!  

Here is the page I painted last night in one hour…..



 MATERIALS LIST:  Gesso and Paints (DecoArt – Green Tea, Sea Breeze, Calypso Blue, Desert Turquoise, & Alizarin Crimson), Sharpie Pen, Uniball Signo White, Charcoal Pencil, Ink (ColorBox) & Marvy Heritage, Tiny Attacher (Tim Holtz), Canvas, Ric Rac, Ink (Daler Rowney), Stamp (Unity), Paint Pens (Montana)


If you missed it LIVE it is recorded for your viewing pleasure and available on my YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TraceB5.  



The more I let myself go on this one and just played I loved it…..it kind of reminds me of Dr. Seuss which I love….    


Thank you to all who joined me!  Thanks for those who painted right along and shared with me in the hours after:
