How I Spent my Summer Vacation!

Hi Everyone! We're back from a wonderful 8 days at Lake Gogebic in Michigan's upper peninsula. We camped in one of the prime sites! I think people would pay big bucks for my room with this view!!!!!!!!

While we were there I had lots of time to work on what I love to do best!!!!!!
Here are some of my finished pieces!
6x6 mixed media on canvas
4x6 mixed media on illustration board

Thanks for looking! Hope all of you enjoy the end of Summer!
Now it's back to school and back to reality!

Positive Thoughts and Art Nouveau

I am totally fascinated by some of the illustrators of the Art Nouveau Period. I Especially love the work of Alphons Mucha and Rolf Armstrong. I find myself borrowing pieces of their illustrations and altering them to use in some of my postcard art.
These two images are by Rolf Armstrong. I added the brick paper for the background. Pieces of earrings that I got at the dollar store, ribbon, and some metal flowers from Tim Holtz.
Positive Quotes and drawing on the image. All these things, make me Happy:)
