Mini Mushroom Village Card Set

Hello! I’m back from an all too short vacation! But, ¬†I’ve missed you all!! ūüôā I do have an exciting announcement to make…¬†I am now making some of my prints and patterns available on different products at Society6! ¬†I’m super nervous about this but I’ve taken the plunge! My MINI MUSHROOM VILLAGE cards are now available as sets of 3, 5 or 10 at SOCIETY6! ¬†They will be printed and shipped to your door! You can see more of what I have in store at Society6 HERE. ¬†Let me know what you think…I’m being very selective as to what I will make available there so you will not see the same things as in my ACNPrintable Art Etsy shop. ¬†Let me know if you are looking for a particular pattern or image for a product and I’ll see what I can do. ¬† Thank you! ¬†Your feedback, comments and support are so very much appreciated.

Watercolor Flowers for Mother’s Day

Have any of you tried Corel Painter? ¬†I¬†am playing with digital water coloring in the 30 day trial version of Corel Painter X3¬†right now and I have to say that I love the ‘real watercolor’ brushes! ¬†I was inspired to play in this week’s SCS IC438 so I painted these flowers to get a feel for the different brushes and I’m happy with the results. What do you think? ¬†I am really a¬†beginner of course so don’t judge to harshly! ūüôā ¬†I have a lot to learn, but I still think it’s pretty! Traditionally, I’ve painted with acrylics, but I just love the look of water colors and painting¬†and blending colors¬†is so soothing to me, so I thought this was a great time to practice. ¬†I¬†used my new digital stamp illustration as a starting point for the¬†painting and this is what I ended up with. ¬†Now, if only I could afford to buy the software!   Here’s the Mother’s Day CAS card I made with it too…         and finally, here is …

Corrinne has made this fun masculine card to share with us and inspire you to join us in the “FOR THE MEN” ACN challenge this month!   I love how she used natural elements (the rocks and the burlap) to give this a rugged outdoors look! ¬†And the HIKING MAN is climbing the rocks…great isn’t it!? ¬†Thanks Corrinne!¬†
