I just got finished this little mermaid. What a fun little 4×4″ creation. I used acrylic paints, colored pencils, micron, and gel pens, along with glitter glue. I dripped crayon wax over it and buffed the wax with a paper towel to make it shine. For bling I used rhinestones, a decorative leaf, glitter-collaging paper. I also used torn colored tissue paper for part of the background layering. All I need to do now is wait for her to dry… yes, I was so excited to post this that the glitter glue is still wet! When she’s dry and I have finished the other four minis I’m working on I’ll get my outside table set up for a varnishing session. Then it’ll be time for the hangers… which reminds me I need to buy more of. =) Since today is shopping day I’ll jot those down on my shopping list. I usually work on at least two paintings at once so that I have something to do while paint dries. The one that’s “nearly” finished is a mini Halloween painting. Think purples, greens, oranges, black and spiders! It’s coming along nicely. I’ll likely have it done by tomorrow so you’ll get a Pre-Halloween treat! Now, off to clean up for a trip to Fred Meyer. Oh… before I go, I have to tell you.. yesterday I put an order in at Dick Blick! I’m finally buying something from my wist list! Stonehenge paper (along with about five other things!) I’m SO excited about blending on butter again! It’s scheduled to arrive on the same day as my physical and the day I get my blood test results so I’ll get to come home to something comforting! You KNOW God planned that perfectly!

  1. It's amazing that over the course of a few months google has not fixed/added the + sign on the add tab icon and that the words that get cut out on tabs have no ellipsis…Why has there been such an oversight on parts of the UI that are cleaerly visible?

  2. This is definitely a good idea to inuldce our website in email’s signature. You can also set your IM’s title to your website, put your website’s URL in forum’s signature, and etc to get more people know about it.

  3. Thanx again for your wonderful tutorials … much appreciated as we can see they’ve got to be time-consuming! And I’d LOVE to be entered for the candy – the pink flamingos would be especially appreciated but they’re all so stinkin’ cute, y’know?!

  4. Thank you so much for all of the time you put into this swap. I’ve toyed with the idea of hosting one, but then when I see the overwhelming response to these things I always second guess myself! Anyhoo, I have not heard from you regarding a swap partner and my name is not on your list of no contact information. If you could please reforward the info to me, I’d appreciate it. Thanks! My email address is:

  5. A double DVD, on the first disc a compilation of the Warfeild shows & the second disc could have a song from every major festival they performed at. Also a new album would be nice. I love the direction of Mystery Song.

  8. Chase, thank you so much for being here. I was fortunate to have had many Mrs. Watne-ishy types growing up. They made me want to hold chalk and stand in front of a class and help people become. I’m so glad you are writing.I can’t imagine not having met you here in the Blogosphere. We’ve got good core, IYKWIM.
